You will not be disappointed if you are an authentic Italian or just wished you were. The pasta here is homemade and all of the ingredients are fresh and delicious. Every time I come to this area, I make it a point to visit this restaurant at least twice sometimes even more than that. They have a website and you... More

Came here while on business. Service was prompt and ordered drinks and good bread served. Ordered Veal Special and their version of Chicken Parmigiana. Fresh house salad came with the meal. Chicken came on a large platter with a great sauce and pasta withmet sauce in the middle of the 2 pieces of pounded chicken. Excellent and for $15.99. The... More

I was surprised by this restaurant and perhaps it's a good thing that it's still not as known as the other restaurants near it. It's a locally owned restaurant with great food. The restaurant is always packed so be sure to make reservations if you can. My family (wife and three kids) have never been disappointed with the food there.... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. Friendly service and great food. I loved that this menu mixed it up a bit while it had traditional Italian favorites there were also some inspired creations. We started with grilled shrimp wrapped in prosciutto in a lemon butter wine sauce that was amazing. The rest of the meal was equally great. Our waitress... More

I have eaten here since it opened practically. The food is very tasty with a broad selection and the quantities are ample. Hard to find a place with great food and great quantities. Always get the soup. Delicious. My favorite Italian restaurant.

The homemade soups are the best with their fresh bread and dipping oil! The different pasta dishes are huge but are served without a salad! A new favorite place of ours!

I had the veal parmigiana (which isn't on the menu but you can request it and a chicken parmigiana). The bread is fresh (sadly they don't bring it out automatically-had to ask?!) with a great oil dipping mixture. Salad was great. Served family style. My veal parm was a little too salty. But the sauce was very tasty. NO FRESH... More

I've lived in Italy. Most restaurants there are independent, family operations. The food reflects that individuality. So does Mama Cucina. Good food. Their own approach to things. Lots of "pink" sauce. Very Old World atmosphere but right in the middle of the Innsbrook development.

Food is INCREDIBLE and portions are HUGE! Salad is served family style with entrees and it was delicious as was the home made bread. We tried a chicken with pasta dish and a cheese ravaoli dish with walnut alfredo sauce. Both were fantastic. Service was good. Dining area was a bit loud but the food is so good that you... More
