The place is very small and was doing a great business on a Sat.Night. Wait staff efficient and good service. Owner is definitely proud of his dishes. He should lighten up on his female staff; they were fabulous. Meal was one of the best I've had in years, compared with Pittsburgh and Philly locations.

I was very excited to try this restaurant but found that our appetizer and entrees were drenched in oil. I am a fan of olive oil, but it was a bit much for me. Otherwise, I think the food has great potential. Another strange thing to me- we went pretty late at night (8:30 pm) so the restaurant was fairly... More

I had the eggplant rollatini and it was light and tasted. Nice lunch. The atmosphere is comfortable.

Stopped in for dinner. Very happy that they offer a kids menu - makes life easier! Service and food is great, only negative comment is the crammed feeling as there are way too many tables and chairs inside, even the wait staff struggle to move around with plates of food!

My sister got married on NYE and booked Mama Nina's for her rehearsal dinner. She put a down payment for a "private event", or so she thought. When we arrived, there were still several tables in the restaurant which were taken. The manager shuffled us in and told us to sit at the long table in the middle; however, it... More

We arrived at 6pm and were told we had a 30 minute wait. We waited outsides in 30 degree weather with our two daughters and our mothers that are in their seventies. The 30 minute wait turned into 65 minutes. We were still excited to get inside and enjoy the lively atmosphere until we were seated in the dark, dank... More

We had such an unfortunate, terrible experience at Mama Nina's tonight, yet again. It's happened before, but for some reason we tried them again. We tried to have a nice Christmas dinner with some friends and, since it was a large party, had reservations. When we arrived, the dining room was packed and we weren't sure where they were planning... More

I just returned from a dinner at Mama Nina's. my friend and I hoped for a leisurely meal.. we had a lot of catching up to do. I felt like I was in a huge wind tunnel. Everything was done quickly. Not a minute went by after we were seated and we were served their garlic bread. The waitress came... More

Admittedly we were hesitant to try Mama Nina's because people cited customer service. Don't believe a word of it. Frank, the owner, is lovable teddy bear. He was as gracious as could be. There are no reservations, so we lined up with everyone else outside by the heaters. Lots of repeat customers. We didn't wait long before we were ushered... More

Nice atmosphere and good food and service. All items on menu worth having. It reminded me of the restaurant in the Godfather movie.
