Mama Carpinos food never disappoints. Their salads are exceptionally fresh and the house raspberry vinegarette is delicious! I wish they sold it by the bottle! Great selection of pasta dishes with perfect marinara and cream sauces. Their lasagna is the best in the high desert!...More

Favorite for pizza and antipasto salad. Feel price is fair and always have had good meals. Need to plan enough time for pick up and parking as is tight.

The food is OK and it's really hit and miss. Prices are high and customer service is OK. We went on a day when they were not very busy yet still took a long time to get service. Waitress never came to check on us...More
