We dined here two years ago and we left unhappy. We were in Cape May Aug of 2016 and decided to try it again. It was great! My husband had the risotto with scallops, lobster bits and bacon, corn and edamame. He said it was excellent. I had the skirt steak, roasted potatoes and broccoli rabe minus the peppers. I... More

We had seen Seafood Alfredo listed here on TripAdvisor only to learn it wasn't in the current menu. The chef made some Alfredo for my girlfriend who wanted to go to Godmother's specifically for that. It was excellent as was my Seafood Risotto. I also had the crab bisque special which was phenomenal as well. BYOB if you are so... More

We have been to Godmother's a few times over the last decade, and have always returned for the consistency of their traditional Italian dishes. This time however, we were disappointed. Though our table was ready on time, we were seated right inside the door. Our server was indifferent at best and all of our entrees were delivered to the wrong... More

Generous portions and an attempt at innovation with the specials of the day. I enjoyed the lobster risotto which inexplicably came with scallops on top and my husband liked the lasagne. We probably would return but there are lots of Italian places to try as well. Nice staff.

We had a delicious meal in a cozy atmosphere. It felt like we were at our Italian Grandmom's house. The food was very good and the staff were super friendly. The prices were very reasonable for a shore resort and the BYOB added to its allure.

We made reservations and went to Godmothers with a party of 4 and we all raved about the food, presentation and the service. We shared the anti pasta and the calamari...excellent. My husband had the special Rossoto with Lobster and I could not keep my fork out of his dish. My ravioli was also a special of the day and... More

My family and I are exposed to some great Italian restaurants as I live near Boston and have spent time in South Philly. None of the pasta houses and mom and pop Italians do a better job of producing consistently well prepared and tasty traditional fare with panache and flair. From a delightful summer salad of arugula, toasted pistachios, salt... More
