We each had phenomenal meals. Mine the lasagna and my wife had the mushroom ravioli. Walked and immediately seated at about 5:30pm, but a line formed immediately afterward until 6:30pm.

A great surprise to find this restaurant just 10 minutes from Spanish Springs in The Villages. It's been there for decades and we didn't know about it until we spotted an ad in the local newspaper. Open every day except Monday and, unlike many other places, they do take reservations. The gluten free menu has almost as many items as... More

We were greeted, seated, and served promptly. Arrived just after opening. The seating is limited, so I can foresee long waits during prime time. The bread, including a gluten free roll, was excellent. The meatballs were very good, sausage needed more spices, angel hair pasta was ok. The beef and mushroom soup was great. The lasagna was nice, but again... More

I have been dining at this family-owned restaurant for a couple of decades now. The current generation continues the tradition of outstanding food with reasonable prices. I rarely travel this way, but when I do I always stop to eat in this amazing restaurant. I have eaten almost everything on the menu throughout many years and have never had a... More

Decided to try it again after not bring here for a few years. Ordered the cheese ravioli and meatballs. It was excellent. The dough was definitely homemade and the sauce very tasty. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. We will be back for sure.

I've been going here since I was very young, and it's still just as good every time. My parents want to go here when they're in town, as it was their favorite when they lived here. It's been run by the same great family who opened it since the 50s, and they consistently deliver with great food in a friendly,... More

We were visiting the villages and decided to take a ride because of limited options for my wife who has celiac. My wife had the gluten free lasagna and was impressed. Often the noodles are mushy and don't have much flavor. In addition they brought her a gluten free roll which she seldom has a chance to eat and when... More

Not a huge menu. Our server was very nice. She steered me away from the Eggplant - it is baked, not fried and might be mushy. I had the spinach lasagna. It has 7 layers but is only about an inch high. I ate it, but found the spinach overpowering in taste. It is more spinach than anything else. My... More

I've eaten at Mom & Dads periodically throughout my childhood. I recently returned to the area after a 35 year absence and stopped in here for dinner. The baked Spaghetti "a-la-bruzzi" has always been my favorite, and is still delicious. The place is clean and neat and just as I remember it. I've known Elainna, the owner, since 2nd grade,... More

We've been visiting Mom and Dads a few years now. The gluten-free options for my son brought us in, but we wouldn't have kept coming back if the rest of us didn't enjoy our meals. Tonight was no exception. Briann has been our server a few times and she is excellent. I can't remember bad service from anyone and the... More
