The restaurant is fairly small with a very nice cozy, romantic atmosphere. Excellent pasta dishes featuring home made pasta and variety of sauces for under $20. Large portions, drinks and friendly service. Reservations recommended. We were there on a Wednesday evening, and the dining room was full. Highly recommend it.

I recently went to dinner with some friends to Mom Chaffee's. This was my first visit. What a gem of a place! The decor here is perfect. Dark rustic semi-gloss painted walls is just right for an old style Italian restaurant. The food is fantastic as well as the service. I had rigatoni with basil pesto sauce. The appetizer selections... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere, food, and company. I grew up in the area and moved away almost 20 years ago, back then it was a great place and still is. A must go if you want great Italian food in the Reading area. Nice selections of apps, and entrées. To full for dessert. Thanks for remaining the same.

They did it again ... Exceeded my expectations! Gentleman taking my reservation which changed & he took care of it with pleasure. We celebrated my Mother's 86th birthday. Her favorite is Seafood lasagna which is not on the menu, only offered as a special. I requested it for her & they delivered. Staff was more than friendly, treated us like... More

Eight of us went for friends dinner. Everyone's dinners were delicious, as well as desserts. Lasagna only Thurs, Fri, Sat. No free soda refills. Our server, Carol, was funny and referred to each of us by name.

I probably have bee there 50 times over the years and every meal has been very good, if not excellent. Not the best physical setting and accommodations, but we go for the food.

My wife and I were celebrating her birthday and enjoyed Mom Chaffe's for the second time in about as many years and were again very pleased. The food was very good. For appetizers she had the coconut shrimp with chili sauce and I had a cup of the cream of crab and corn chowder. Both were excellent. The soup just... More

Food was good especially the antipasto; vegetable(asparagus) had been sitting too long; drinks were not so good: disappointing margaritas; would not sit at a banquette again; decor lovely except the bathroom; bet they must have a larger one somewhere for mama to use; I only weigh 120 and could not turn around in there, had to stick my feet on...

Ok first the food. The food itself was good to very good. Appetizers and entree's were served hot and were fresh and tasty. So why did I leave angry? This is a quaint restraint with close seating. We actually enjoyed interacting with the couples around us. The issue was the one waitress who bumped me every time she went by.... More

I always ask the sever what they recommend and I haven't been disappointed yet! On my last visit, I had one of my favorite dishes: the prime Filet Mignon smothered in mushrooms in a wine broth! Tender & flavorful! My server, Morgan, recommended a fresh mozzarella & heirloom tomato salad and a pasta dish (included with the meal). The desert... More
