The food was nice and hot. Didn't particularly care for the ambiance but that is a matter of personal taste. The service was a bit slow but maybe I was in too much of a hurry.

Just testing to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I ordered the vodka orecchiette again. This is one of the few dishes I now crave. Even sitting here and writing this makes my mouth water. I've tried making a vodka sauce like this at home and after dozens of tries, I'm at about a 6.5 out of her 10 for... More

The food was pretty good. The atmosphere was not bad. The prices were a bit High. There are better places to eat in the Bellefonte and State College Area but it's better than others. It's worth a try.

I stopped in, due to the rave TA reviews. I was shocked to see no one else in the establishment. I had a choice to sit and stay or walk out. I stuck it out and was provided the best chicken parm I've ever ate. Fantastic food. I will be back on each trip to Penn State.

Went out for dinner by myself and decided to try Mamma Lucrezia's since some friends had mentioned that it was featured on Restaurant Impossible. Decor is nice and modern in the dining room and the front room is retro diner counter. The menu is not vast but there were several choices I could have made. I ordered pasta a la... More

We first visited Mamma Lucrezia's after the restaurant was featured on Restaurant Impossible. My inlaws live in Boalsburg so we are in the area visiting at least twice each year. We go to Mamma Lucrezia's for dinner at least once and sometimes twice on each trip. The food never disappoints. The owner often seats and serves us as well as... More

I finally tried something other than the seafood pizza...hard to give up! I can't remember what my wife had, but she loved it. I had the vodka orecchiette (say, Ora ketta) and it is phenomenal. I mean this dish is hard to beat and would venture to say it's even better than the seafood pizza, which is hard for me... More

Always wonderful food and she is really a very good cook. Things are a la carte and a little over priced. It does not seem to be family friendly for families with children and a little high priced for familes.
