We visited this restaurant only once during our stay. As it was a particularly humid night we chose to sit inside where we decided the AC would be our saving grace however this was not the case. Perhaps even warmer than outside we almost over heated whilst eating our meal. The service however was good and the portion sizes acceptable.... More

It is not that amazing except that compared to so many of the others it is one of the few options. Staff as so many on the island are quite surly.

We went here with our kids to have a pizza. The pizza itself was very nice... and the bowls of pasta they serve are plentiful. Nevertheless, there are a few things that were not great: 1. I dont like being served soft drinks out of a big bottle. If you are paying restaurant prices for a soft drink they ought... More

Not only was the food just mediocre, which is saying something on an island with many great choices of restaurants, but the service was really bad. We both had pizzas, the Maialinda and the Isla. Had to ask three times for drink refills. Restaurant wasn't even busy, but the servers just weren't paying any attention. Food was okay, but just... More

Mamma Rosa is a staple for at least one visit per trip. We were, again, very happy with our visit. The husbands each had a pasta dish, declared excellent and we split the risotto primavera which was absolutely wonderful! A must go to if you love Italian food and are on Isla. You will not be disappointed....

Last night on Isla and this was our stop. Food was decent, priced well and the service was good. The down side was when we went to pay, they ran our debit card 3X and because of that, it froze the card from working! We almost got stranded there with no other options to pay (the island ATM's are sketchy,... More

We ate dinner here again on a second trip to the island. The service was very good and very friendly. The pizzas were very good and wait time till ready was very quick. The pizza size was more than enough for one. Very large menu to choose from. Nice seating area on the street. Very good value.Very good brick oven... More

Ate at Mamma Rosa for our evening meal on two occasions this past week. Had pasta one evening and pizza at the next visit. Both were really delicious. There were nine in our party and everyone was very pleased with their order.
