Unfortunately, Mama's is all pasta, and not very good. I eat gluten free and there was nothing on the menu other than a tossed salad for me to eat. Felt we were bothering the waitress, she really wanted to be with the couple sitting at another table.

Although my pastas are not gluten free we have a wide variety of items that are gluten free on the menu. I have never had a problem in the past. An example is our philly steak or chicken that is prepared and topped on our house salad. Our chef salad is a best seller as is all our specialty dishes... More

Real home style cooking. Lasagna is really good so is the rest of the menu. Early bird specials are really special.

Crowded on a rainy Monday night. Must be good to get such repeat business. Yes, our meals were excellent and the service is friendly and helpful. My veal Parmagiana was first rate. My wife had linguine with clam sauce and loved it. The portions are large enough to bring some home for lunch. It has a casual look and feel... More

We were here two years ago and remembered how good it was so we made our second visit today. Food is delicious and very large portions. Reasonable prices and great service.

Went on a Monday for dinner and arrived around 5:45. There were only two couples ahead of us, but people started flocking in as we waited. Our wait was short and service was very good. Our server was prompt and pleasant. The food was excellent. They have a light side menu which has some of the same foods, but smaller... More

Mama's is like being in the kitchen of an Italian home. The food is absolutely delicious! The friendliest hostess, Anna, will seat you and immediately a waitress will wait on you. The atmosphere is pleasant. Don't miss out!

Mama's is a great local Italian restaurant. They serve THE best Eggplant Parmesan I've honestly ever had. I am always bummed if I get served a thick slab of undercooked eggplant when I dine out, and I have had that more times than I care to remember. The eggplant here is cut thin and cooked perfectly. The salad is standard,... More

Tauting their mozzarella cheese cheese it hides paper thin pepperoni on the pizzas of hand tossed commercial dough(that barely rises), (their small with 3 toppings is $17.25) along with a draft beer(9 oz) for $4.00 Everything is tourist inflated, and well worth a PASS. She had the baked zita, which noodles were overcooked, then baked under a "roof" of cheese.... More

It is unfortunate we can not please everyone. Our pizza dough is made fresh daily and there is 14 oz of whole milk mozzerella cheese on the 14" pizza and our 10oz drafts are $2 each and .99 cent during Happy Hour. Bake Ziti is one of my best sellers since we do use a lot of cheese do to... More

Ate at Mama's for the first time the other evening and it was terrific. Extensive menu and great service. We both had the lasagna and it was perhaps the best we'd ever had at a restaurant. If you are in the Englewood area, I would definitely add this to your list of restaurants to try.
