Excellent Food and Service

Never changes - excellent food, service and atmosphere. Staff work hard, never a shortage of customers, couples, larger parties and children. I always have pasta with broccoli - I can't seem to change it: I have eaten the same dish in Rome and it's not as good as Mama's!

I had been recommended this restaurant by quite a few friends so my wife and I decided to try it. The food was very good, extremely tasty and good portion sizes, the staff were very helpful and very friendly. I would recommend this to anybody that enjoys good food and a good atmosphere. Will be going back very soon!!

Mama Rosa's is absolutely fantastic. Food is beautiful and always fresh. Very reasonably priced, large portions, what's not to like? Service with a smile. Simply superb.

I've been a few times to this restaurant. The staff are always great. The food even better. The 'specials' are always special. The main menu vast and good. Would recommend this restaurant always. Their potatoes with onion and bacon is delicious to add to any meal..

We chose Mama Rosa's because it was central to where my Daughter lives.. She had booked for 1 pm, we took our table which was situated in the first halve of the restaurant it was clean with lovely pictures on the walls... We chose our food it was hot and plentiful and we enjoyed it very much, all three courses..... More

Really great Italian Food very authentic and the Lasanga is absolutely the best, I never eat it anywhere else now. You really should try it but you need to book at least a couple of weeks ahead for a Saturday night.

Only reason that I did not give this an Excellent is that the decor is a little tired, just a lick of paint and a few Italian bits would really make it so so much nicer. However, great food, really good quality meat, nicely cooked, staff are on the ball, ready to serve and very pleasant. We are all big... More

We visited here with friends on a Saturday night and loved the buzz of the place, service attentive but not OTT, food plentiful and good range of choice available.

Mama Rosas was recommended to us and I am so glad it was!! It is lovely family run restaurant and the menu and service reflects this The food is 'proper' Italian, not the anglicised offers you get in the chains....and the portions are substantial (beware the Pavarotti upsize option....it feeds a small family as my partner discovered..)
