    Simple, authentic dining experience. Meats and sauces are wonderful, and the pasta was fresh and homemade. Mumma sells carryout from the front door. Let them know you're coming for full service in the small, cozy dining room off the side door.

    We went to Mumma Maria's for our a celebration for Christmas-which was awesome that they were decorated for Christmas -very festive.. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The restaurant was very quaint and the food was excellent! We tried each others selections and we loved everything. We are definitely are coming back! We made a reservation on Open Table and they were ready for us when we got there.

    Our group of 7 had a wonderful dining experience on Sunday, Dec 10, 2023 at 1200. Our greeter and server were very friendly and helpful. The cheesy bread appetizer was out of this world. The Mr. G.’s spaghetti and meatballs and chicken Parmesan meals were delish and huge portions. The atmosphere was festive casual, with Christmas lights above us and poinsettias on each table. We definitely recommend this restaurant.

    The service is very slow and disorganized. Food doesn't come out in any rational order. Like our salad came out well after our entrees and we didn't want them anymore. It wasn't very busy with clientele, but still the food took a really long time to come out, and my mom's entree was cold, she asked for it to be hotter and they microwaved it so it was scalding. They've been open almost 3 years and it'd be better if they could figure out their dining service, otherwise they should just stick to carryout. Not worth eating in.

    This was such an excellent find. The food was excellent and the venue was such a cool little Oasis in Detroit. Wished we had planned our timing a little better to go for a walk in the nearby streets of Indian Village. We ate on the patio because it was a perfect evening but the inside kitchen is super quaint and feels like you are actually in their kitchen. We can't wait to come back and bring some new friends with us.

    I hesitate to write this as I know this will turn from a hidden treasure, to a popular destination! If you're looking for authentic Italian food without all the foo-foo, this is the place! Mumma's Kisses are a must have and of course the Sunday gravy with meatballs, sausage, and pork! Don't skip the deserts!

    My Wife & I were very happy with our Dining Experience at Mumma Maria's. Our Waiter was very accommodating and helped us choose (2) great sharable dinners. The Atmosphere was quirky but very comfortable. We thought of friends of ours who would enjoy sharing this experience for themselves like We did. We plan on coming back and possibly dining outside in the future.

    The best Italian food in the city—no contest. The meatballs are truly incredible and the gnocchi with palomino sauce is delicious (the palomino sauce on anything would be delicious). The environment is casual and welcoming. Service is always great and wine recommendations always spot on. Can’t wait to go back soon!

    This is a unique restaurant in Detroit. It's quaint, has exceptional food and the service is top-notch. Carl makes his own sauces and I love going there. It's moderately priced and you'll love the atmosphere. If it's a Birthday, chances are that the whole restaurant will sing Happy Birthday to you.

    We had dinner Sunday to celebrate my mom’s birthday. The dining room is very cozy with nice music playing! It’s a very casual dining room, and small, can seat maybe 30 people. We had a large table which was ready for our party of 9 when we arrived and were seated and offered drinks promptly. Good beer and wine selection and I think even some cocktails available. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and portions are large, everyone in our group loved the food! We chose the restaurant partly because it is so close to Belle Isle and we headed over there after dinner. A great night! Thank you Mumma Maria’s!

    Authentic and delicious! And this is coming from an 100% Italian girl who's known for her own sauces and rarely orders pasta dishes at a restaurant! Made reservations to dine in as weather was iffy. Cozy set up inside due to limited seating. Patios were filled when we left! A hidden gem in a neighborhood that is becoming more and more charming year after year! Can't wait to visit again!
