Probably the best overall food/environment in universal. I've had several dishes from here and have never been disappointed. The serenade is a lovely added touch as well.
Delicious food, and wonderful service. They have a musician who goes around playing songs table to table on his guitar and singing. Great place, highly recommend
The Service and food quality was Fantastic. Always such an enjoyable evening with the music and ambience.
It was so wonderful!! What lovely people working there.
Very special night!
It's quite expensive with small portions. Overall the food was unimpressive
We went for our anniversary and enjoyed a good meal with live music. The server was nice. They sang to us and made the night special. The food was tasty but the only thing i would say was not the best were the desserts. Everything else was perfect, lovely and enjoyable!
Lasagna is amazing! Cozy atmosphere, servers very attentive
Mohammed and Momma Della were great! They made Sterlings birthday celebration unfogettable!
We enjoyed everything about Mama Della’s! The music, the food, and the service were outstanding!
Great dinner on the last night of our vacation! Guitarist and singer made the night so special.
Order the bruschetta!
The restaurant ambience and location was very nice. The food was average at best. The noise level was high because there was a table side singer who sang so loudly it was distracting. I don’t know that we would go back.
This is REAL Italian food and was easily the best meal of our trip. Great service and atmosphere. Will definitely be back.
The food was delicious! Portions are meant for 1 not shareable. Our server was great. Our glasses were never empty. The musicians were a great touch to already great ambiance. Highly recommend and highly suggest reservations!
I have no negative say about this place! Everything was great. We even had Italian music played and sung at our table. I really felt like we were in Italy. Loved it!!!!
The establishment is divided into rooms similar to large living rooms, creating a more intimate dining experience. The bread service was very good, and the meal was wonderful. The guitar player and singer added an extra layer of pleasure to the experience.
Food was very disappointing.
- Bruschetta had very little tomatoes
- Gnocchi was cold, sent back to warm up and we were already finished with entree by time they came back with it warmed up
- Spaghetti was dry, needed more sauce. Sauce luke warm. Meatballs seemed like they were frozen, not fresh product.
- Bread service good, but strange they don’t give you balsamic.
- Caspar Salad decent, crotons stale.
Best part was the opera duet! Server was slow. Expected more out of the experience.
One of my favorite spots on Universal property. The food is delicious and I want to believe that I am actually in Italy on a balmy summer evening .
Great food ,very tasty very good service and nice ambiance
Food was very tasty. Quick service and waiters were very friendly. Portion size was small to moderate. Perfect amount not to feel overstuffed or bad if you don't finish your entree. I would definitely revisit Mama Dell's Ristorante.
Service was above and beyond. Very accommodating. Gnocchi was fantastic.
There has to be better Italian food at hotel called Portofino. The food was flavorless. I had gnocchi which was gummy & the sauce tasted like it was from a jar. My husband had veal piccata & he said it was ok, but the pasta that was served with it had zero flavor. The wine was good. Server was nice. Strolling singer added to the atmosphere. But if you are looking for decent Italian, this is not the place.
The food was wonderful. We enjoyed the serenading entertainers. The service was outstanding. Truly the best restaurant for authentic Italian food and so romantic!!
Erik was amazing and kind. He made us feel welcomed
The food is amazing! Request an outfit table when you make your reservation.
Delish! And loved the ambiance.
Outstanding experience across the board. The food (from the breads and oil brought out first, to the bruschetta and antipasti appys, to the gnocchi and the eggplant mains, to the dark choc pistachio flourless torte) were amazing. The drinks - like their house made sangria (very generous pour!) and limoncello shots - were great too. Our very experienced server and the strolling musician with a beautiful voice and impressive guitar playing (an opera singer later joined him) just added to the whole experience. Highly recommend!
Went for Magical Dining, sat in the plaza for an hour before, just enjoying the peace and quiet. The service was excellent, and the food was simply perfect, from preparation to presentation. We also greatly appreciated that we were never rushed. Add in the live musicians moving from table to table - a truly perfect evening!
Since we were guests at the Portofino Bay Resort, it was an easy choice to have dinner at Mama Della's one evening. The service was nice and attentive. The restaurant was pretty. They had strolling musicians moving about the dining room who performed beautifully. The food was fine. We enjoyed the appetizers (caprese salad & shrimp scampi) but our entrees were just ok (chicken parm and lasagna). Maybe we would have enjoyed something else more. We were each given two mini-desserts that were tasty and was a nice touch to end the meal.
Very nice dinner and experience for our Anniversary. The filet and chicken parmesan were delicious! Loved the ambiance too. Would definitely recommend.
First time eating there. My family loved it! We sat at a table next to the fireplace. The staff was fantastic!
Great place to eat and enjoy one another. Great singer!! Vianney our server was amazing!
We were a party of 4 and we all loved our food!!
Be sure to dine here!
Awesome atmosphere and amazing food! Highly recommend.
Food was absolutely amazing! Huge portions, wonderful selection. Staff made us feel right at home, very attentive. Will definitely be returning often!
We loved Mama Della’s! When staying at the Portofino resort, this is by far the best place to eat. We ate here twice during our stay because it was so good. The ambiance is great and the food is delicious. Highly recommend!
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding! Exceeded our expectations and we’ll definitely be back.
Music and homemade Italian food like "Mama" used to make , what could be bad ? I was most impressed with their sauce , it was a reminder of the past.
The entertainers were authentic and sang almost anything you requested. That night they sang Torna a Sorrento for us and Spiderman for a youngster at another table. The wine selection was excellent as well.
Largest portions we have seen for a magical dining menu. We will be back !
We went for the Magical Dining experience. It just didn’t match up to other restaurants we tried. The starter soup and salad were good, not great. I had to send my entree back because it was not hot. Dessert was ice cream, unadorned. The views outside afterwards were spectacular but dinner, unfortunately, was not.
The service, food and the live music was great!
Dinner was absolutely delicious and the service was great. Will definitely go back in the future!
