33 Years In Business!

2022 marks our 33th year in business. Much of the success here has to do with our amazing customers. It revolves around making the customer feel good about doing business with you. This is our goal and we take every opportunity to let you know that your business is appreciated and we are grateful. Try and notice next time how often you here us say, “Thank you”. Notice how often you hear it when you shop elsewhere. It’s a lost practice.

Of course, it involves more than just saying the words. It takes a commitment day in and day out to provide the best service and quality food we can. Being an independent, family owned restaurant we can do that. It also takes us giving back to our customers. Not only are we active in the community feeding the homeless every month through Praise-N-Thunder Outreach Ministries, but also we like to mark each milestone by an event to show our appreciation. See the photos of each in the gallery section. Other events included our Italian Culture Series and Italian cooking classes, which we had my cousin Teresa fly in from Italy to teach.
Some of our customers have been eating here for decades and now their children’s children are eating here. It is not unusual for them to say that we are part of their family; they are certainly part of ours. We have room for you at our table and we have plenty of food.

"I have been eating at Mamma's every Tuesday for the past 14.5 years. Additionally, I have also eaten at Mamma's 3 to 4 more times a month, some times with clients. I have used Mamma's on several occasions to cater affairs, sometimes for as many as 100 people. Over the course of my culinary experiences with Mamma's, I have found the following: The quality of the food has been consistently great...never had a bad meal; abundant portions; always friendly staff regardless of what position they hold, it is clean; meals are served expediently; large, easy access parking lot adjacent to the restaurant; safe; and with all these attributes, the prices are significantly reasonable. If Mamma's were a pyramid club, I'd be a wealthy man, for, everyone I have taken there continues to patronize it and they inturn have introduced others to Mamma's. As my Godmother always said, 'Try everything legal once'. If you haven't tried it, you owe yourself the dining pleasure and don't be surprised if, after which, you find yourself joining the many frequent diners at Mamma's of Dorsey Road.

"We were from Boston and needed a caterer for our daughter graduation of USNA. Cantina Mamma Lucia was recommended to us by our hotel. All our guest commented on how great the food was. They did not try to over sell. We also had them supply us with a waiter who was the most accommodating and polite individual I have every dealt with. He was very inventive to all our guest making sure they had everything they needed."—Gail, Hanover, Maryland
