“What a good surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

Walking into this place, one has no idea of the quality and extensive selections that make this place a gastronomic feast in an area devoid of challenging food. Fresh eggplant dishes, inventive dishes, good sauces, amd more. It ain't Italy, or even Little Italy, 'cause the bread isn't crusty and that tasty, amd the meal salads are kind of very plain, but the entrees are what you come for, and they are just plain good.

“DELICIOUS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

Restaurant is small but the food is great...Large menu with a large special board. everything is made while you wait. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful with our choices. Go there very hungry or you will have plenty in your doggy bag..Even the owner and cook stopped to talk with us...

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

We went there on a Sat. Nite for dinner, what a pleasant surprise! Very warm & friendly. Meal was plentiful & tasty and reasonably priced. Our granddaughter (college student) highly recommended Ma & Pa's, reminds her of home. We agree and will definately go there again.

“Pizza is good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

We went there for lunch on a Saturday. Ordered pizza. It was pretty good. I was expecting NY style pizza based on all of the reviews... Let's just set this straight... it is NOT traditional NY style pizza. It has a thicker crust. That being said, it was very tasty. The waitress was very nice as was the gentleman who sat us.

While there, I browsed through the dinner menu and look at the specials board.... everything was SOOOO expensive. Chicken Rollatini... $18.95, Linguine with meatballs... $16.95... and many other very basic meals for twice what you would pay elsewhere. This is not a fancy restaurant... it is a small pizzeria with only a few tables... not worth the price.

Our slices and sodas came to about $9, reasonable... but we will definitely NOT be returning there for dinner.

“Homey and delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Ma and Pa's is a homey little Italian restaurant. The menu is fairly standard, but they have a specials board that is indescribable! The board has about 20 items on it that are rarely seen in other Italian restaurants. If you want to know what something is, just ask the chef - she's standing in the kitchen which is part of the dining room. There are maybe 7-8 tables total. The food is quite good, and they do a booming take-out business. If you are in Granville, it really is the best place to eat.
