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 speck, mushrooms, Gorgonzola and red onion. Several antipasti plates are available, such as creamy burrata on crostini with anchovies, or asparagus topped with a runny egg and crispy prosciutto. A section of the menu is devoted entirely to meatballs made with different meats and sauces, and pastas like rigatoni with mushroom ragù or cheese gnocchi with tomato sauce come in small and large portions. Make sure to order the tender pork spareribs glazed with a balsamic reduction. For dessert, we suggest the spumoni with its layers of panettone, cherries, and vanilla, chocolate and pistachio gelato. There is also a concise list of Italian and California wines.
