My family and I have been vacationing in the Englewood area for the past couple of years and love Mama's. We have had dinner there roughly 8 times and every visit has been great! The service is excellent! The portions are very generous and they are priced lower than other restaurants in the immediate area. We will return!

It comes with a side of pasta and if you don't want that u can have veg's instead. Not knowing that was $3.00 dollars extra why... More

I'm sorry you you did not have a positive experience. Veal is expensive but I have always kept my price as low as I can and it is a nice portion which most cannot finish. Your dinner comes with pasta and marinara sauce or garlic & oil and a Bowl (not a cup) of soup Or house salad and garlic... More

This visit to Mama's was very good! We ordered Fetticine Alfredo and a Vegetable Pasta and both were very tasty. The vegetable pasta included a mountain of broccoli and other things in a lovely, mild sauce. Our server was a whiz at moving from table to table with plates full of good looking dinners. We shared a spumoni dessert which... More

Really large food portions for a reasonable price. I had a 16oz.NY strip steak that I only ate half of. $17.99 served with soup or salad and FF or spaghetti with marinara sauce and garlic bread for the table.. Brought home leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Lisa was our server and was very knowledgeable provided great service. WE will definitely return.

Stopped by for an early afternoon dinner. We had a choice from either the lunch or regular menus. Both had their own unique items. We started with cheesy bread with marinara sauce. Hot and fresh. We both decided to go with a full menu item. Wife had spaghetti with meat sauce. The noodles were cooked perfectly and the thick meat... More

Have visited here twice in the last week and have been very pleased both times. The first night we had a Vegetable Pizza that was absolutely best one I have ever had. The friend who was with us couldn't say enough good things about it. The next time we were there my husband and I had spaghetti and it was... More

Every dinner was Hot, Fresh and the portions are HUUUUGE!! The owner seems to always be there and appreciates your business. Check the place out you will not go away... More

When you see take out containers leaving with guests, you know that, not only is the food good, you get enough for another meal. Restaurant was busy but service was good and quick. Everything from appetizers to main courses and drinks was tasty - huge portions. Our table of seven ate well and even had leftovers to take home. Prices... More

Waitress strongly urged ordering the evening special which was an in house cut steak. Both men ordered that, girls ordered veal piccata and shrimp alfredo. House salads were... More

The service is great, very nice wait staff. The food is fairly good. We've been there for dinner several times. Their best service is Take Out. We've ordered their take out for our crowd at home many times. They have an excellent "Keiths Salad". We like it. You can get Pizza there but it's not a "Pizza Place". Italian food... More
