Mama Cella's Italian Kitchen Restaurant Review:

Tim Walsh and his family have run this cozy little joint since 2007. His sons cook and wait tables, while he and his wife attend to guests who come for home-style dishes like lasagna, eggplant Parmigiana or his grandmother’s special meatballs from a fifth generation recipe. Slow-cooked sauces made from scratch elevate the traditional cuisine. The welcoming atmosphere sports red-and-white checked tablecloths and tiny white Christmas lights. Sip a nice glass of Chianti while you nibble on fresh bread with mushrooms or zucchini. After a hearty pasta dish, try the homemade tiramisu and crème brûlée if you still have room. When the craving strikes for an East Coast-style Italian sub stuffed with cold cuts and cheese or hot Italian sausage, head straight here.
