Peter the owner is an interesting man with a cool Italian accent. Some of the best Italian food anywhere. Been in Tarboro for a very long time and for good reason. Service is fast and friendly. Best way to Italy without the travel.

I have been eating at Mama's for most of my life and it has always been great. In a town where other businesses have come and gone, Mama's is still going strong. I think that says a lot. Highlights of the menu, for me, are...More
