genuine Italian hospitality and great food

This small cosy Italian restaurant has a very friendly ambience and top service, Italian style with plenty of fun. Good menu and provisions profitterolls to die for. They also have a decent Montepulciano house wine. I recommend booking as it is full of locals.

I used to go to Mama Rosa's once a week for lunch, and I always had the same thing - Penne Diavola - it was just penne in a spicy tomato sauce but my word that sauce was delicious! And the lunchtime price deal didn't break the bank either. The staff are very friendly and came to recognise us as... More

Pleasant enough Italian restaurant with decent menu. It is a bit 'noisy' and the tables are a bit close together.

I love Mama Rosa's! Its always a treat to come here and the food is always amazing with attentive and friendly staff. My favourite is Spaghetti Marinara which is always packed full of sea food.
