Mama D's is an Italian restaurant located in beautiful Newport Beach. The mother of 7 children, Mama D utilizes her Italian grandmother's recipes to share good Italian home cooking to Southern Californians.
The restaurant has been ranked as "Best Italian Restaurant in America" on Yelp 2016. Mama D's doesn't take any reservations. The wait time can be fairly long if you're not there when it opens. During your wait, you can expect them to roam around the waiting premises offering bread and other goodies to keep you company.
The restaurant itself looks nothing fancy. It's packed, full of people waiting to get a taste of the very popular pink sauce. When you step foot onto the premises, you feel you've been dining here for years...a sense of a neighborhood Italian kitchen mixed in with a beach house vibe.
