I've been going to this venerable Reston for many years and my most recent visit last night, a Friday was a perfect setting for a romantic 'date-night'. We were served by Anthony who was solicitous and helpful but thankfully not over the top. The lady had angel hair aglio olio, this was her first visit and she was thrilled with... More

My wife and I had evening dinner at Mama Theresa’s Restaurant on November 27, 2016 (Ottawa, Ontario). We both ordered the pasta trio dish (cannelloni, tortellini and chicken parmagian). It was very good, with plenty of pasta (too much)! One of our favourite Italian desserts is tiramisu (which we ordered). We had a small conversation with our waiter about the... More

Atmosphere is nice. Food average. Price high for what you get. Serving presentation plain. We ordered the snails, and it was served all together in a small plate.

My husband and I eat here often when we need to unwind. The setting is an elegant old home, now beautifully decorated for Christmas - surely the loveliest in town. The staff treat you like family: you are the centre of their attention. We love the eggplant parmigiana, and their tiramisu is the best in the city, bar none. The... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was pleasant but nothing out of the ordinary. The best part of the evening was being on the little enclosed front porch and people watching out the windows. We had the whole porch to ourselves. The service was attentive. Lovely white linens on the table,... More

Food was good. Tiramisu was amazing. Didn't wait too long for our meal on a Thursday night. Food was a little over priced for what you got.

We were a very large group of 16...so they put us in a large upstairs room, all to ourselves. Such a great place to visit...although it was still a bit hard to hear people over the business of the restaurant. When my parents had lived in Ottawa, this was one of their favourite places to eat. It hasn't changed much.... More

We were a group of 7 and each one of us enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent, attentive but not overbearing. Food was served hot and were nice sized portions.We would definitely recommend and will visit the next time in Ottawa.

Had just arrived at our hotel and asked at the front desk if there was a nearby restaurant we could visit. We liked Italian so they pointed us to Mamma Teresa's. liked the food and service so much we went back a couple of nights later.
