Great Place – Mama Rao's is an excellent restaurant. Two years ago we had my great great aunt's 100th bday party there and it was terrific. This weekend past we just had my grandmother's 90th bday party. The food is absolutely terrific and the staff are wonderful. I dont mind going to Brooklyn if we're going to Mama Rao's!
A BIG THANK YOU TO MAMA RAO'S – I had my engagement party at Mama Rao's this past Saturday....first I would like to thank Sal and Christine for their time and their attention to detail. From the way they displayed my favors and decorated the room...the table settings were gorgeous. The waiters were unbelievably attentive...i walked away from the table and came back to my napkin folded and my glass full every time. The food was incredible as always...fresh, delicious and more than enough. I have been receiving calls from my guests since the day after the party telling me what a great time they had and what a great place I chose!!!
Mama Rao's house DJ John was a tremendous hit with my guests...the dance floor was packed and people who never get up...got up that night!
So again thank you Mama Rao's and DJ John for making this special night better than I ever thought it could be!!!!!!!
Great place!!! – we had our engagement party here in 2/08 and every one loved it.. my mom so much that she is now having my bridal shower there and i know we wont be disappointed! sal does a great job with every party and makes u feel like family. the food is great, service is wonderful and the atmosphere is awesome! definetly worth the trip!
A Great Big Thank You to the staff at Mama Rao's!!! – The team at Mama Rao's helped me plan my husband's surprise party of 50 people with less than 2 weeks notice! It was so much fun, everyone had a wonderful time. The food was perfect. I could not thank them enough. We will never go anywhere else for a family get together.
Oh, and the lemon cookies served for dessert made at the restaurant are unforgettable. They are also sold at the local delis all along Bay ridge and Bensonhurst. They are worth every calorie!
Once again, Thank you
Not that good of an experience. – My family and I had our daughters 1st birthday at Mama Raos. It was not a good experience. I don't think the kithcen was able to cater to a party of our size. we had 55 people there and all of our courses were served late. What should have been a 4 hour affair turned out be a 6 hour disaster. The main courses were served cold and we felt like we were rushed out of there when the food finaly arrived because they had to set up for another party. Sal who i think is the manager is nice and kept apoligizing for the ordeal however it was beyond his control.
I am sure that if it was smaller party they would have done a better job.
I WILL NOT BE RETURNING.
The best party we ever had!!!!!!!!!! – I am going to start off by saying - AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had a party for my daughter's college graduation and it was truly a memorable experience. The food was excellent! The service was excellent! Sal is great! and the pretty girl tending the bar is great too!
In all of our experience having parties at restaurants, this was by far the best! We had never been to Mama Rao's and booked the party solely on the opinion of friends. Most of our family is very fussy about food, but no one complained that night. My family has not stopped calling to let us know what a great time that they had. Not only was the food exquisite, your staff was attentive to our guests and your restaurant is impeccably clean. I will recommend this place to everyone. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks again for a great time and we will be having more parties at Mama Rao's. P.S. the lemon drop cookies are to die for!!!
Communion Dinner – We had our son,s Michael's Communion party here and it was GREAT!!! The food was fantastic the service was incredible and the my guest all left totally impressed. Sal thank you so much for making this special occasion so memorable. The pride you have in your restaurant not only shows through the great food you serve, but in the way it is so well maintained and clean. I just got home from the party, it's 12:30am now and I'm so happy the way everything went I had to tell somebody. So I decided to write this review. I'll see you next year for my other son's Communion party!

Outstanding & Delish! – Oh my goodness!!!! Must try this place because you are guaranteed to go back! Mother's Day turned out great! My mom had a great time and felt like she was back in Italy! The food was excellent and the service was amazing. I truely felt at home. It may have been crowded, but the staff was on their game. loved it, loved it, loved it!
PS The expansion is beautiful - A must go see!
Horrible Mothers Day Dinner – We came to Mama Rao's for mother's day and just want to say what a horrible experience it was. We have been coming there for a few years now and this was by far the worst. The prices were so outrageous for 11ave and the portions were so small, I walked out of Mama Rao's starving. My $20 penne vodka was a disgrace and my dads $39 steak was even worse. The food was thrown at us so fast, the mothers at the table didnt even get a chance to enjoy their day. Thanks for nothing.
Baby Shower at Mama Raos – Baby Shower at Mama Rao's‎ - Rosalie‎ -
I just had a baby shower here hosting more than 50 people. Best decission I made. The food was excellent. The waiters were on their game and Sal, the owner was there to see that everything went well. He is a great person to do business with and goes above and beyond his promises. My sister also had her husbands 50th birthday here hosting over 100 people.It was great as well.
It will definately be one of my favorite restaurants from now on. Thanks again Sal. Roe G
