Don't let the exterior of this restaurant fool you. Inside it is very charming with white table cloths and old time classics playing. There were 5 in or party and we went early to take advantage of the Early Bird Special seating (5 -5:30). Unbeatable at $19.95 for three ample sized courses with a varied selection for all three.

We decided to try Godmother's Restaurant at my older daughter's urging. She was on Cape May holiday with us and indicated that the restaurant came "highly recommended", as a southern Italian restaurant, by her friends. The other positive was that it was one of the few restaurants in the area that took reservations and had an opening at the time... More

Godmothers is officially my go to Italian restaurant in Cape May. I'm told that in the peek season it could be difficult to get in, I know why. I visited this delightful gem on the off season and I'm glad I did. Our waiter was Brandon, very nice young man. Excellent service and personable. We made reservation for 6:30 and... More

Godmothers has been a go-to restaurant of ours for many years, usually serving up delicious meals for a pretty good value. Our service has always been attentive, knowledgeable and professional. That being said, on our last visit, I strayed from my usual seafood risotto entree (which has always been a hit) and ordered the veal parm. While my side of... More

Nice, quaint location and ambiance. Tried the early bird (between 5-5:30 PM). For $19.95, it included and appetizer, main course, and dessert. The portions are smaller than a full meal, but nevertheless still plenty satisfying. The quality of the food was excellent, service attentive and respectful. Would definitely recommend.

We decided to try Godmothers after other guests at our hotel told us about their positive experience at dinner. First let me say that the staff was super friendly and atmosphere really comfortable. Godmothers advertises the menu as Southern Italian, however I found nothing southern Italian about it, rather just an average and typical menu. I ordered linguini fra diavlo... More

My family and I went here for dinner one evening. One member of my party ordered lobster ravioli. There were 5 average sized ravioli's on the plate. The person eating this said there wasn't anything spectacular about the dish. Another member of my party ordered the shrimp scampi. The person eating this said the pasta was dry, and it had... More

Went here last night for date night and I'm so glad we did. Tina was our server and was so pleasant. I had the salmon which was the best I ever had and bf had the chicken parm which he said was good. We both cleared our plates. It's BYOB but they do have Cape May wine you can purchase.... More

Very nice Italian restaurant reasonable prices! We loved the ravioli and the shrimp scampi is to die for. The Limoncello dessert is also great! We eat here everytime we are in Cape May and the daily specials never disappoint.
