“Great jewel in the rough”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Small hole in the wall restaurant that was recommended by a friend. Too hot that day so we took our food for take out. Fantastic cannelloni, my son tried the meat and I had spinach and ricotta. Delish!! My husband had a fantastic homemade soup and a great sandwich on homemade bread. If you go, i is not for the location or atmosphere but for the delish homemade food. I am very picky when it comes to pasta dishes and I loved their pasta. Many order for take out. The salad was fresh cut while we waited and a little bit better than others since it was fresh. Cannot wait to try again. Home baked sweets also.

“Italian food made with passion and fresh every day!”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

This cafe is a real gem! Located in the industrial area off of Dollarton Highway and Riverside Drive in North Vancouver, Mama's serves up fresh Italian food daily - from the daily soups made from scratch to the fresh cannelloni and lasagna, to the fresh bread used in their gourmet sandwiches, to the meatballs and sausages, you just can't get better! This cafe kitchen gets really busy over lunch hour, so try to sneak in before noon or after 2PM if possible. All meals are under $10, which is a truly remarkable value for the amount of Italian cooking passion that goes into each meal. Try Mama's, you'll like it!!
