Mama Della's Ristorante at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel

When you dine at Mama Della's, it's like being invited into her warm, welcoming home. Every room transports you to the Italian countryside, where you can enjoy rustic, Old World specialties like Insalata Caprese, Pollo Marsala, Lasagna and Frutti di Mare, accompanied by the finest wines and strolling musicians. While you feast on authentic dishes from the Tuscany, Naples and Piemonte regions, Mama herself might be there to urge you to "Mange! Mange!" Delicious Italian food served in a romantic, genuine atmosphere, makes dining at Mama Della's an experience you'll never forget. You'll find Mama Della's in the Harbor Piazza at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando. With its cobblestone streets, sidewalk cafes and even the occasional Vespa dotting the harborside, this Piazza will make you feel like you've been carried away to Portofino, Italy. It's a fantastico setting for a most magnificent Italian meal.

"Mama Della's has wonderful food and wine options. Although not extensive, it is varied enough for everyone to find something they like. The service is attentive but not hovering. Service personnel know the menu and wine options and are able to make good recommendations. We enjoy the Italian homeyness of the ambiance. It is comfortable and fun but still formal enough for a special occasion. The restaurant is broken down into "rooms" which means there is much less noise than most restaurants.
The wonderful live music makes this restaurant a cut above other restaurants with excellent food. The opera singers serenade each table. The experience makes for a memorable experience. I recommend this restaurant to everyone."

"From Mama Cristina to Big Joe, from the tenors to the Chef, our dining experience was truly remarkable. We look forward to visiting all year. We stayed eight nights at the Portofino and enjoyed dinner at Mama Della's 3 times. On our annual trip, we have enjoyed Mama Della's for six consecutive years. The warm welcoming feeling from our "friends" and the fine cuisine will keep us returning year after year."

"Ambiance is very nice. Tables are not too close together which is good considering noise echoes in the restaurant.
We went there to celebrate the end of a great vacation. I did not care much for the strolling musicians. They were good but just not for me.
The food was very good if a little over priced.
Overall I would recommend it for a special treat and plan to return myself

"I made reservations for a group meeting at the hotel. The menu provided good choices for everyone and I would happily return for the food. I'm not against table side music. We had a perfect jazz brunch experience at Commander's in New Orleans recently.
Table side opera so loud that it stopped all conversation was too much. No only was it impossible to talk when the singer was next to us (I recalled the real vs.Memorex commercials), it was nearly as loud two rooms away.
I would go back for the food but not for the "entertainment. "

"The food at Mama Della's is nothing special. The bread basket is served with roasted garlic in olive oil for dipping which is a nice touch. The menu reads better than it executes in the kitchen.
The price for two with a glass of wine each will be over $100. This is just for a couple of pasta dishes. I ordered a salad to go with the pasta which was generous and nicely dressed. The Spaghetti con Polpette was just basically a standard meatball and spaghetti dish that didn't taste as good as it read on the menu description. The Frutti Di Mare wasn't that fresh either.
The service by Mohamed was good.

"I took my partner to mamas for his birthday and it was the best decision I ever made. Right when you walk in you feel like you are home. The restaurant has a nice balance between elegant and being at home. They were quick to bring out water and bed almost immediately as we sat. Lance our waiter was very helpful in picking our meals and wines. We started with the calamari which was a huge portion and absolutely delicious, best we ever had. We both filled up on the calamari alone! After we waited for our entrees. Both my partner and I wanted the filet but lance suggested one get the filet and the other get a more Italian dish and we share between the two. We didn't know if we should get the raviolis or the gnocchi. Lance personally suggested the ravioli so we went with that. We did wait a bit for our entrees but we were so full from our appetizer and the opera singers came to our table and sang for us that we didn't care. They brought us complimentary salads for the wait which was very nice. Once the food came out lance explained that the reason it took so long is that they wanted us to try the gnocchi, raviolis, and filet and brought out all three with the gnocchi being free of charge! What a nice touch. The filet was he best we ever had and the ravioli and gnocchi was very good as well. The opera singers came by again and sang my partner happy birthday in Italian and they gave us both free deserts! A couple nights through the night I almost cried because of how amazing everything was. Please go to this restaurant and ask for Lance! The service and food were outstanding. We will be back!"

"This was a return visit for us. As always, we found Mama's to be an excellent restaurant with good food and attentive service. The Fruti di Mare is consistently great with its savory blend of seafood over pasta. It was disappointing that the number of veal dishes has been reduced. Hopefully, they will be put back soon. And the outdoor scene with its live entertainment is not to be missed. Thumbs up from us!"
