A friend and I dined at Mama Ricotta's yesterday evening (it was my second visit), and I must say that I was entirely dissapointed. The cocktails were weak and the wine pours small. I can understand this from a business perspective, but the quality of the food should make up for that! I ordered the Chicken Parmesan and it was very dry. I had to request an extra side of sauce to pour over my dish. I do not see myself visiting this restaurant again anytime soon.
Response from the owner - in the last week

We have been coming to Mama Ricotta's for 15 years and have always had a pleasant dining experience; We have introduced various friends to this restaurant. This week we had reservations for dinner early as we were going to a show. The Pollo Romano contained hard pieces of dry chicken; and there was almost no sauce with the spaghetti. The appetizer of bruschetta had burned pieces of bread laden with soggy tomatoes, no cheese! The complimentary dinner rolls were cold and tough, really inedible.. Our server was not unfriendly, but wasn't friendly either. .During the meal, she was not very attentive to our needs. Because of our past experiences, all of this was quite a disappointing surprise to us .Not at all what we expected at Mama Ricotta's. addition to above review on 09/02/15: in response to question from Mama Ricotta's---the date described in our original review was July 21 around 6:00pm. We did not contact the management at that time because we were with another couple and did not want to make a scene.

Thank you John for taking time to share your comments. Loyal patron feedback is taken seriously and we will make sure the management as well as the culinary team are aware of your experience. Your description is a far cry from the type of food or service we want to serve our guests. Can you tell us what day/time this was and did you happen to mention your dissatisfaction to a manager? Thank you -

Stellar, affordable Italian food. The lasagna is excellent and the polenta is amazing.

I would have to say that the experience has definitely changed since you guys moved from Independence Boulevard (Matthews). It hasn't been right since. As far as the quality of the food I would say that the sauce that comes with the Lemon Penni broccoli chicken pasta is sooo watered down now.. There is definitely a new chef in the building who has switched is up with the recipe !

Ashlan, Thank you for your feedback but it seems as if you posted this review on the wrong business. Mama Ricotta's was never located on Independence Blvd. in Matthews. If you could please transfer your review to the correct establishment it would be much appreciated. Thank You! FS Food Group Guest Relations

Good Italian food with lots of flavor. They have a wood fired oven for pizzas and such. Lasagna is very good. Service is average. Parking can be tricky as its not the parking lot is shared with several places. I would come back again when in the neighborhood.

Great experience. A lovely restaurant full of character and presence. Very competent, gracious servers and pleasantly accommodating staff. Menu was tops and our choices were perfect for the moment. Delivery and presentation was a small in-balance of light and heavy, respectively. The food was over the top. The savour of our meal was impeccable.
