I have been dining at Mama Theresa's original restaurant in New Hyde park for the last 20 some years! I had wonderful experience at this flagship restaurant! But since they opened up a branch near my work in East Meadow, every now and then I order takeout. I noticed big time change in attitude of people who works there. Poor... More

I desired good pizza for my late meal and drove here after work. I was not disappointed. Coincidentally, I went to lunch here, slices of pizza to go, because I'd run out of time on an errand. Each time, I was greeting quickly and the pizza selected was put into an oven to warm up. I was happy with the... More

I always get a great meal either dining in or taking the food out or having it delivered. I highly recommend this Italian restaurant/pizzeria.

Food is great but you definitely pay for it, I would understand it more If it was a beautiful place but it's not...it would also help if it didn't feel like they were rushing you out of there. You can barely put your fork down without them trying to come take your food off the table to wrap it to... More

Definitely try the buffalo slice! Their dough is delicious and cradles the sauce and chicken nicely. Always fresh ingredients and nice size chunks of chicken. Regular slices are good too!

OMG, never had this happen to me... If been there 5 times with family when in town. The food is average, nothing more. However the amount of food they serve is very large which is typical of many Italian restaurants on Long Island. So I like the others ask for a go bag. Wrapped my lasagna up in the go... More

Went on to pick-up an order that was phoned in prior. The counter help had a very tough time with English, but had no problem at all with attitudes. They decided to start screaming out NEXT....NEXT...NEXT to the rear of the line. I said "you've helped 4 people from the rear, while I'm still here" OK, walks away and continues... More

I eat hear often and decided to write a review. Of all restaurants, the food here is very consistent and consistently good. Between my wife and I, we have had almost everything on its menu and there is truly nothing we have not liked. The food is fresh, prepared well and the portions are just right. We never leave with...

Sometimes they forget a side of sauce or extra dressing when delivering but they always have utensils, cups, plates, napkins since they know I order to an office. My only issue is the salads are very overpriced. A grilled chicken salad is over $13, and they used to put more chicken on the salad then they do now. The dressing... More
