Mama Cella's restaurant is owned and operated by the Walsh Family.  My wife Tammy and I (Tim) have been married for over 30 years.  We have 5 children, Amanda "The Princess" is our oldest and our only girl, Ryan, our first son who is working on getting his masters in history at Cal State San Marcos, Tyler who coaches a number of basketball teams in the RB Bronco ball league, is an assistant coach for the Mirimar Sharks basketball team, and is starting his own elite program for high school age boys called San Diego Elite, Shane who is a graduate from Rancho Bernardo High School and working on different projects with his love for art, and last but certainly not least Nicholas, who is 17, a junior at Rancho Bernardo High School and hopes to go to college for finance. In August 2014 we also welcomed our beautiful daughter-in-law, Lauren, to our family.

We bought Mama Cella's June of 2007.  We were going to change the name to Antonetti's which is my ( both grandfathers were Irish hence the last name Walsh ) grandmother the inspiration for the Italian Restaurant with her MEATBALL recipe, but Mama Cella's was already established for 9 years.  When we bought the restaurant we bought the name and the recipes because of the established clientele we decided to tweak the recipes to our taste, create a truly better pizza, meatball, and overall menu.  We kept the Mama Cella's name.

We feel very lucky and blessed to be part of the Rancho Bernardo Community.  We believe strongly in giving back to our community, working with the local schools, which our children along with a number of nieces and nephews attend RB High School and Bernardo Heights Middle School. We also contribute to local churches and charities.

We would love to meet you and your family.  Feel free to contact us at
