Outstanding Italian Food. Since finding Mama Mia Too in 2000 we have yet to find an Italian restuarant that beats it: it's fabulous! Great food at really good prices, wonderful quiet atmosphere in a big beautiful old house offering the ability to actually have a conversation and hear each other talk. Great service and Ralph, the owner, remembers you and is always making sure the guests are happy. I recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy what they pay for and get some of the best Italian food around. Not really a place for small children, the atmosphere tends to lean towards the adult crowd and it's nice to have a place where you can eat without a child screaming next to you.
Sucked. To go order 45.00 suppose to be fineest italin rest at holbrook house it look and smelled like mold food had no flavor had to go and pick basil from the garden to even give it somesort of hope DO not GO!!!!!!
EXTREMELY Overpriced for portion served. I began eating at Mama Mia's when they were a hole in the wall in Cornelius - I still visit on many occasions because the food is unbeatable. I have been there the past 2 Valentine's Day with groups of people I have encouraged to try this great restaurant. However, since my first Valentine's Day dinner with friends - these past 2 holiday's I have been embrassed by the extremely small portions of food. The cost of food is way high, but for that quality no problem but come on! We do want enough food to taste. And honestly - $5.00 for a salad that has approx. 10 leaves and one small tomato... Please consider larger portions of noodle, not too expensive..... Thanks
Won't be dining here again....
Part 2 of 2....
Next came two of the smallest and simplest salads I've seen in some time. I counted literally 12 pieces of romaine lettuce, shaved carrots and one tomato wedge. On to the important part....the entrees. I had ordered pesto stuffed ravioli with lump crab sauce. Sounds good right? I must say, that overall they weren't that bad but then again, I can't say they were good either. The sauce was entirely too salty (and this coming from a salt fanatic) and there was nothing too special about the dish other than I should mention that I was impressed that the dish did actually contain lump crab meat. The boyfriend ordered their chicken parm with stuffed shells and manicotti. I tasted this myself and the marinara sauce was very, very acidic and the chicken overcooked. The shells were freezer-burned and it just wasn't what we were looking for. At this point, we obviously knew we were skipping dessert. Upon leaving the restaurant the two of us sat in the car both feeling as if we had just eaten rocks. This food just really made the both of us feel a little ill. I should mention that the bill came to about 70 dollars and I had just water with lemon and my boyfriend two bottled beers. We will not be going back to Mama Mia Too. Although I have not yet found fantastic Italian cuisine, I should say that the best pizza I?ve found by far is Tony?s. I believe there are two locations. The slices are enormous, so plan on starting with just one!!
fresh sea food and quality of the steak.
I had my baby shower party there, i did enjoy the food the servive and the private room.
special the Alfredo sauce and the scampy sauce.
We went to this restaurant twice; the first time the Calamari was not crispy at all and it was full of the frying oil. The steak was over done and was chewy. The sugar on top of the creme Brule was not completely caramelized and we can still feel and taste the sugar granules.
The second time we went (because we got a gift card) the Calamari was much better but again the entrees were OK. In both cases the service, althought very friendly, was very slow. Forget about getting beverage refills promptly. They need to hire more staff to attend to their consumers
Worth the nine hour drive. We discovered Mama Mia's too because a NASCAR driver had listed it as his favorite restaurant. We assumed that someone from the area would certainly know what was good and decided to look it up. Now, we're forever grateful that we followed that impluse (even though it made us feel like crazy fans). We have seriously considered making the nine hour drive from our Kentucky homes just to eat lunch there.
I'll pass next time.. We had heard this place was good, but we were quite disappointed. The service was below average and the food was nothing special. The prices were higher than the experience warrented. There are too many other good restuarants around to give it another try.
User review by smlauter. What a disappointment! After hearing and reading so much about this restaurant I chose to entertain Guests on a special occassion here. The starters were tasty but all the entrees were very average or below average. Nothing special at all and quite pricey for what was served. The service was unfriendly and the atmosphere cold.
this is the creme. I too, love this place. I have been going for years whenever I am in town. (which is alot) the owner takes great pride in his food and is not full of himself at all. he always comes to our table and asks how the family is. He has seen us for years though. He knows we go there for the true relaxation experience that is lacking in so many other places. He is not a chain , so that helps when people are truly in it for the love of it. It shows. Dont miss this place. I usually get the Ralph salad an Wild mushroom ravioli....................I have tasted much though.
