Hey, Mama! You are certainly one of our favorites in the Forks! Thank you for many years of wonderful food! My wife and I have greatly enjoyed every meal we have had here during our many visits. My wife's favorite... the Cranberry Tortellini! She loves it! Yes, Mama... I think it is pretty fantastic too! However, I am a bit... More

I've been to this restaurant over five times, and each time it has gradually gotten worse. I don't think I will be going back because it is not worth the price. Salads usually have water all over the bottom of the plate for some reason, making the dressing really runny. However, I will say that I used to enjoy the... More

I had the unlimited salad and pizza with an add on of dill pickle soup. The food was fine. It wasn't bad, but it was just fine. The dill pickle soup was good, but not outstanding. Side salad was good. The pizza was really just ok. There service was slow, and the restaurant was not that busy. I think I'd... More

I planned a team dinner for my daughter synchro team in town for sectionals. I was able to get the private room and the banquet manager (Jackie) was so helpful in creating a buffet for the group. I received such positive feedback from the teams, team mgrs and coaches - awesome was the word that kept coming up. Food was... More

Have stopped here 4 times over the past 2 years, and always ordered the spaghetti. Sometimes it is very good, and then the next time not as good, it's like the spices or meat sauce vary in quality or are prepared differently. My companion has ordered other items on the menu and had the same experience. So I would say... More

I had the lasagna and it was horrible. I tried someone else's food at the table and they had some seafood pasta and that was bad as well. I do not recommend this place at all.

Had dinner on the night of a home UND hockey game so all restaurants were busy. Mamma's had a great Italian menu with wonderful selections, including the calamari with angel hair pasta that I enjoyed. Prices were very reasonable and even though busy, the wait staff was helpful and attentive, and the food was prepared and served in a reasonable... More

The three of us ate here last night; what a good choice I made. When I think of pasta, I think of Olive Garden or Green Mill, I just forget about Mamma Maria's'. Well...that will change now. We entered the restaurant by the movie theater entrance, the Cabelas side. As you walk towards the restaurant, you have two choices walk... More

The food sampler is very good if you want to try the different things. The Pasta Primavera was one of the best I've tasted. I didn't loose the flavor after cooking.

Went here for dinner on my birthday and really enjoyed the toscana soup with potatoes and sausage. Just the right amount of spice. The pasta in my shrimp and lobster dish was a bit over done but the 5 large shrimp were perfect - well cooked and seasoned nicely. Thanks for providing this special treat for birthday folks!
