We were in Tarboro last week and decided to go to Mama's Pizza for dinner with friends. My wife had linguini with white clam sauce and I had linguini with oil and garlic....Both were excellent. Our friends had the same as we did and all plates were empty after the meal. This place is a keeper

Do yourself a favor and stop in hungry. If you leave hungry it will be your own fault! The staff is friendly and helpful. Made great suggestions and were spot on!

After a day of yard work, I really need to visit Mama's Pizza of Tarboro for dinner. Most of the wait staff know exactly what I am going to order, but they politely give me a chance for a change-up. Of course, I will have the Mediterranean Salad, which is a bed of romaine, topped with a baby mozzarella, surrounded... More

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 the cheese steaks and the stromboli.

Italian food is definitely my favorite food so I am very particular about the Italian cuisine I enjoy. This place certainly has great Italian food. Their stromboli, spaghetti with meat sauce, and their pizzas are amazing. I eat here often with them being in town and you should definitely give them a try. You will not be disappointed!

Stopped at this place because we heard it was good....frankly, when we walked in the door, I was ready to walk out because it was just old, dark & dirty looking. But we ordered the spaghetti, meatballs & Italian sausage with salads...the lettuce on the salad was old with brown edges, totally inedible. The spaghetti was OK, the sauce was... More
