Mama Terano Restaurant Review

: Atop Rolling Hills Estates, the options for fine dining are few. Mama Terano, named after the owner’s grandmother, offers rustic, approachable Italian at affordable prices. The small but charming space has an outdoor brick patio, a counter to watch the cooks at work, and a dining area in the back painted in soft beige. Start with a crispy flatbread, preferably the one topped with sausage, kalamata olives and mozzarella. Several antipasti plates are available, such as a classic caprese salad or crispy prosciutto with dried figs and arugula. A section of the menu is devoted entirely to meatballs made with different meats and sauces; pastas like rigatoni with mushroom ragù or fusilli with pancetta and mushrooms come in small and large portions. Make sure to order the tender pork short ribs braised in port wine. For dessert, we suggest the zeppoles with chocolate hazelnut spread. Choose from a concise list of Italian and California wines. For an authentic family meal, stop by on Sunday night for the special multi-course supper.
