My wife, our niece, and I had a delightful dinner. Booking a reservation, to on time seating was spot on. Our meal was delicious, service was wonderful, and would recommend everyone give Mamma Teresa a try.

Great Italian food with excellent service. The food was very delicious and the serving size was plentiful. I had the linguine vongole as a starer and then a veal dish (Veal Cesare) with gnocchi - both were outstanding. Bravo!

Back again with our friends from Toronto who just love this restaurant. Great meal, good Italian wine, excellent service from Johnnie, never rushed. Love the homemade gnocci with tomato sauce. Just a wonderful place to make a night out of it. Thanks boys. Highly recommend.

Lovely and cozy atmosphere... beautiful variety on the menu. Service was outstanding... waiter was attentive, helpful and considerate. The mussels were out of this world - not sure what was in the sauce but we couldn't get enough of it. Portions are very large and so you might consider sharing. Everything was absolutely wonderful- great experience 😊

My major factor in rating restaurants is food. Therefore, despite the nice ambiance of the Mamma Teresa restaurant I can't give it more than 2 stars. The food is simply not tasty. It is so-so. If a restaurant serves a gorgonzola salad with so much Italian dressing in it that I can't even feel the taste of the salad itself... More
