It was our first visit to Mama Rosa. looks tiny in the outside but it early is quite a large restaurant. staff we're really attentive ( without being intrusive) and promptly bought our drinks. The Bruschetta was simply wonderful. One portion being more than enough for 2 people. my husband had the puttanesca and I had the penne diavolo. Good... More

I have been to Italy many times and I have to say that this restaurant is as near as you can get to proper Italian food. And there's always plenty of it and can be cooked to your specification, and it's so reasonable in price.

My wife and I and 4 fiends enjoyed a tasty, value for money, evening at Mama Rosa's last weekend. We hadn't been for couple of years but, the food and ambience was every bit as good as our last visit. The staff in particular were brilliant and they made our evening so enjoyable. Great extensive menu and superbly cooked dishes... More

I visited this place a couple of years ago with my boyfriend on two occasions. The food and the service was absolutely impeccable! The spaghetti carbonara and pizzas are actually incredible, sooo tasty! I have wanted to go back ever since but live too far away! If you're ever in the area of Leighton Buzzard, make sure you go!

Wow. Have Lived locally for years had never been to Mama Rosa's before. Well what a surprise to find a traditional Italian restaurant tucked away near the high street. It was mid week and it was buzzing at 7.30 pm. The staff were welcoming and attentive. Everything was freshly prepared, and the portions gigantic. Plenty of selection on the menu,... More

The food is nice without being super special. It is not a place I would put anyone off going to but to summarise it is an average Italian restaurant. As far as Leighton Buzzard goes it is one of the better restaurants

Everything about our visit there was superb, the food was absolutely delicious, really good selection and came out piping hot, people were raving about it! the service... More

Went to Mama Rosa's for the first time on 4th July for in laws 50th anniversary. Balloons, Cake and Banners all ready when we arrived. Must say the food was fantastic. Beautiful steaks, homemade pastas (the lasagne delicious) great selection of starters. The best Italian restaurant I have ever been to in the uk. Highly recommended.
