    We were in for my dinner after daughters graduation end of may. We tried embers but would not take us. Had the best glass of moscato!!! Dinner as usual awesome also.I now can not remember the name of the Moscato wine I had. Can you tell me what it may have been. Loved it. Also how much would it be to buy a bottle from you? Thanks!

    If you wish to sumptuously dine in North Georgia, you needn't look any further than Mama Onesta's. Don'y go for business or shooters with friends, take your significant other. From the moment you walk in and are greeted and seated by the happy staff to your first bite of their exquisite cuisine, you realize you're not just eating out, you are having a romantic experience. Sit back, sip your wine and enjoy the ride.

    My wife, Amy (Bucher) Pease celebrated her birthday (November 15) at Momma Onesta's with her husband (Terry Pease), daughter Becky Pease, and Becky's boyfriend, Chris Davis. The food was excellent as well as the service. The restaurant is charming with a welcoming, friendly atmosphere. We highly recommend Momma Onesta's for great Italian food! Definitely a must!

    After moving from Atlanta to Ball Ground three years ago, we finally found an Italian restaurant that brings the Atlanta dining experience to the northern suburbs of Cherokee County. Located in Historic Canton compliments the restaurant’s intimate atmosphere and charming décor. The owners and staff are hospitable, attentive, and friendly. Dinners are moderately priced with large portions and we were highly impressed with the attention to detail in the preparation of our traditional Italian dishes. It was evident after meeting the restaurant’s inspiring chef, that our enjoyable meal was prepared by one who is passionate about his work! With a wide variety of menu choices that is sure to please anyone in your party, you must add Mamma Onesta’s to your list of dining choices.

    Last Saturday evening, my wife an I celebrated our anniversary at Mamma Onesta's. We had heard of it but had never been there. When I made the reservation, I mentioned we would be celebrating our anniversary. Not long after we were seated, the owner, Frank Degrassi, came over to our table to congratulate us on our anniversary and to give us a split of wine to help us celebrate. What a wonderful way to start a special evening. Without going into great detail, EVERYTHING we had was superb, from special drinks, to wonderful main dishes, and unbeatable deserts. The wine list is extensive with offerings for every taste and budget. Their famous garlic roles deserve a double order. We will be back....soon!
