Mamma Maria's Ristorante Italiano Restaurant Review

: The pretty dining room with embossed tin ceilings and floral carpets fairly bulges with diners enjoying the $55 seven-course feast offered by Maria di Marco: antipasto, soup, pasta trio, and choice of entrées, salad, fruit and cheese, and dessert and coffee. The menu changes daily, depending on what’s fresh at the nearby Italian market. If your appetite is not as voracious, bring a bottle of good wine and come during the week to taste di Marco’s pastas, or a roasted meat combination that includes chicken, lamb and pork sausage, or one of her veal dishes. Finish with Amaretto cake or Italian cream cake. And you must try the homemade limoncello.
