Very child friendly, extensive range of pastas, pizzas and other dishes. A magnet for families early evening, we were lucky to get an early table. We only ordered a main each, but with our drinks they brought round spectacular garlic Focaccia with oil. The pastas...More

Mama D's has been a staple in Manhattan Beach for decades. It's a family friendly atmosphere, with traditional Italian fare. It's a small restaurant, so at times there will be a line of people waiting outside to get in, it's that good !

Wide menue filled with all the Italian dishes you love and plenty with a twist. Great for children, a quick bite or a long lazy lunch or dinner with friends or family

My girlfriend and I had a nice meal here. It's not a top end Italian so if that's what you're looking for look elsewhere. It is however, a very nice family style restaurant with good Italian food. I would go back again if in the...More

Nice atmosphere but average food. Positive: $100 for a pretty good dinner for a family of 6. Negative: pasta over cooked.

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.
