Want real pizza? The kind with a thin crispy chewy crust, tangy sauce and abundant toppings. Then Mama's is the place to go. Need a salad? Got that too. They offer a diverse selection of pasta and sauces. My favorites are eggplant parma and puttanesca with angel hair pasta.

Peter the owner is an interesting man with a cool Italian accent. Some of the best Italian food anywhere. Been in Tarboro for a very long time and for good reason. Service is fast and friendly. Best way to Italy without the travel.

This is a good restaurant if you want a quiet place to go and visit with friends in a more intimate setting. Food is always great, but they have the best meatball sandwiches.

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.
