First time here, and the food was amazing. Perfect for a one on one experience or as a family. A little upscale but nothing too extravagant. The only problem we had was the service could have been better. It took us a few minutes to be seated as there was nobody at the door when we entered, and our server couldn't be found a couple times, yet for the most part the staff was attentive and professional. Definitely recommend checking this place out.

One of the best Italian places I have been to. I love the Sangria. It's always every fruity tasting. I have had the Chicken Parmesan on a few occasions and it was always delicious. The calamari is also a great appetizer to start with. This place is worth a visit.

Delicious family style Italian in Charlotte. Probably the best Italian I have found in Charlotte. Wide selection and good atmosphere. Owned by the same guy who owns midwood smokehouse.

The food was so good and our waiter Dylan was on top of his game. The hostess was very helpful and the customer service was great. I had the penne alla vodka with chicken and it was the best I've tasted. I'll definitely be back. ....

During my visit to Charlotte, decided to try Mama's based upon reviews. Our server is what kept the rating from being a full five star experience. Simply put, she needs more training. We were never offered complimentary bread, and we didn't realize it existed until we were about to leave. It was a slap in the face. All of the other guest surrounding our table were complimented with the home-made treat. My husband was never offered a refill of WATER. When I ordered my side salad, she was quick to announce the additional cost of three dollars and some change. Our server dropped the wine list off on the table, but never even mentioned it to us - I had to ask her if that was the drink menu. We were never offered dessert, and it just goes on. She has to be retrained or find a new profession. On the other hand, I will return in the future; the food was very good. The italian & vinagarette dressing was outstanding. My picky eater husband enjoyed the penne a la vodka with chicken. The dessert that I glanced at while departing looked delicious. The manager took care of us, and apologized. I realize that the server does not reflect their brand. Mama's is a local favorite, and their food is a testament to their popularity. I would like to try the pizza in the future :-)

Authentic Italian pasta and food as well as New Haven style pizza (thinner airy, doughy crust). Nice atmosphere and staff with a great beer and wine selection. The house salad is huge and well worth adding to your pizza or pasta order. I loved the vegetarian pizza (because I love artichoke on my pizza). If you're still not convinced to go here let me remind you it's from the same people that brought us Paco's Tacos and Midwood Smokehouse.

Food was great! Penne a la vodka. I went here with a Meetup group, and although we didn't have a reservation we were before the rush, and they were able to accommodate us, very happily. Definitely a good vibe in the place.
