Great place to take a family with kids. Basic Italian pizzas pastas fish are the best offerings. It’s very casual, inexpensive with friendly staff

I’ve never been a big fan, but the price is reasonable and they have been there for over 20 years so must be good enough to last that long.

The Italian food was of average quality, and not as good as you normally get at an Italian Restaurant. The original Owners have retired so the attention to the food preparation is just average. The inside of this Italian Restaurant is very old, disorganized, and...More

The owner has opened a BBQ restaurant in Hermosa Beach I believe, but I was unaware of another Mama D's in Redondo. Just call the restaurant in Manhattan Beach, they will be able to help you.
