    Mumma Maria's House truly does evoke that Sunday night supper feeling. Laid-back vibe, delicious pasta dishes. The palomino sauce is amazing! Make a reservation and treat yourself and friends to a great night out. And maybe you'll be lucky enough to be there when Mr. G's Mom calls to check on things...be sure to shout out a hello.

    Mr G & co are very welcoming and personable off rip upon entry. It’s more like eating dinner at extended families house rather than a restaurant which is a breath of fresh air. The food is as Mr G put it “to live for ”. Marriage salad, meatballs and cheese bread and fettuccine alfredo was in fact to live for as well as the dessert! ❤️

    I had high hopes for Mumma Maria’s House based on the pictures and reviews. I was disappointed. Get the meatballs and Little Mumma Kisses with Palomino sauce, cheese bread and rose wine. Skip the Marriage Salad and all the other pasta dishes. All the sauces fell short for me except the Palomino. Pasta itself is delicious. I didn’t care for the Ammoglio - and it’s on everything, including the salad. Weird to have stewed tomatoes for dressing on the salad. Meatballs are to die for.

    Our first time visiting MM and we are in love! Mr. G and Dash welcomed us at the door and danced with us on the way out! We had a lovely waitress who was attentive to our needs. Our meal was absolutely fantastic! Starting with the Marriage Salad and breadsticks followed up with Chicken Parm and a glass of house red. We can’t wait to warm up our leftovers today and will definitely be back! Such a sweet little spot for a delicious meal and conversation!

    This is truly the best Italian cooking I have ever eaten in this area. They say the sauce is what makes Italian cooking so great they absolutely nailed it the best ever. You won’t find any better Italian cooking anywhere in the Tri-County area than at this restaurant. If you have’nt an eaten there you gotta go it’s really cool and it’s even in a house. Way better than any of the Italian chains. Get real Italian cooking here. And desserts to die for. Awesome Italian desserts. All home made. Try getting that at a chain restaurant.

    You always hear about hidden gems and hole in the wall places that have amazing food. This is one of those places. It's built from what used to be a house, you walk around the back to check in, the front is for takeout orders. It looks unassuming when you walk in the table cloths are red and white checkerboard and it reminds you of eating at your grandma's or aunt's house for supper. The menu is simple and not very fussy, there's paper baskets on the table in case you want to share any food, water and wine are served in plastic cups. I couldn't make heads or tails of the place, on the one hand everything is presented in such a casual way and is very unassuming on the other hand I had to make a reservation weeks in advance and the place was indeed booked solid when we arrive. Once the food arrives everything makes sense. We started with Marriage Salad with meatballs. It was a fresh, vibrant salad with a unique dressing and the meatballs were spectacular. I got linguine with pork and meat sauce, my wife liked the meatballs so much she ordered Spaghetti with meatballs and Palomino sauce. The pasta is all homemade and tastes better than any Italian restaurant I have been to in the last decade. When I asked about the pork, our server told us it is cooked over 12 hours in sauce and it honestly tastes every bit like it was but the meat sauce that it came with was even better. The Palomino sauce my wife got with her spaghetti and meatballs was out of this world good. The best way I can describe it is an Italian gravy, it's rich and creamy yet still tastes like tomato but way more savory it is one of the best sauces I've ever had. The food at Mumma Maria's is exceptional for what you pay. I've been to places that try to be fancy and will charge you an arm and leg for food that is half as good.

    Mumma Maria’s is amazing!! Very delicious & very fresh food. The meatballs and pasta are incredible - especially Mr. G’s meat sauce! Freshest ammogoli sauce I’ve ever had. Our meal was fantastic and I’m looking forward to dining there again soon.
