Mamma Lucia has been serving a taste of Italy to Calvert County since 1997. At both the original Dunkirk location and the newer Prince Frederick location, comfortable dining rooms with oversized booths encourage you to settle in for a leisurely meal. Owners Sal and Maria Lubrano want you to feel like extended family. They greet you and feed you generous portions of fresh pasta, pizza, veal, seafood and chicken from recipes inspired by southern Italian and Neapolitan traditions.
Mamma Lucia specializes in “typical Italian recipes,” says Maria Lubrano. At the same time, the Lubranos strive for innovation. “A lot of dishes we come up with. We try them and then we put it on the menu,” she says.
The most popular is the Bowtie del Mare: lobster, crab and asparagus in a light cream sauce, served over bowtie pasta. Ask for a bowl of olive oil to accompany the basket of fresh-baked bread.
For pizza lovers, Mamma Lucia offers three types: Sicilian, stuffed and New York. The 16-inch gourmet pizza is a vegetarian’s delight and takes a knife and fork to handle this pie, heaped with broccoli, spinach, tomato, mushrooms, peppers, artichokes, olive oil and extra cheese.
To bring Italy into your home, Mamma Lucia offers two options: Call in your order and pick up for a to-go taste of Italy. Or call Mamma Lucia’s catering service: 443-486-4701.
