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.

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..) The prices are... More

This is my ?th review of Mama Rosa's in North Street Leighton Buzzard. We went to celebrate my garanddaughters 17th birthday. There are only two things I can critisize and that is that the wooden chairs are uncomfortable and the price of a beer is outrageous. The chairs may be down to me/age but the drinks are a bit OTT....

Really good food. I usually eat carbonara pasta which is really nice. We have tried their pizza as well and it was really tasty with very nice and fresh tomato sauce which i love in my pizza. It is a nice and quiet place and the staff is really nice. What makes me wondering is why the restaurant is not... More

Food is great (portions too big, if that's possible), passionate about what they do, nice atmosphere but could do with a revamp as looking a little tired. Overall good food.

The food in this restaurant is second to none. You couldn't ask for a more selected and enjoyable menu. Staff are always very polite and friendly and nothing is too much. Bottled beer isn't that nice but if you mind it then it's ok. The prices are very reasonable aswell. Defiantly a place to go.
