Meet Paola Leone-Finch

In the kitchen at Mama’s Place, “everything is prepared with love”! Chef Angela (also known as Mama) has turned her passion for culinary arts into an incredible dining experience. Angela’s drive to bring the tastiest dishes to the Town of Essex inspired her daughter Paola to follow in her footsteps. Together, they have been serving dishes made from the heart since 2009. Paola is proud to serve her hungry customers the authentic Italian comfort food she grew up with! She loves Essex for its immense community support and the collective efforts of residents supporting local businesses. “I would never leave here,” Paola says. On her days off, she spends as much time as possible with her family and enjoys eating at other restaurants in the surrounding area.  For Paola, “Family time always comes first!”
