Good food but average gluten free noodles

Someone said in a review that they have homemade noodles. This may be correct but it is definitely not true for their gluten free noodles. I orders meat sauce and it was good but not enough sauce. The meatballs are not gluten free but the spicy sausage was they said (though it's large and hot and I... read more

Long time family owned business that has been one of the best in Kelowna for years. Authentic Italian food prepared fresh and a wide selection of dishes on their excellent menu. Like Fettucicni Alfredo? Mama Rosa's is a must! Seafood Cannelloni is superb! Have never had a bad meal there in 25 years. highly recommended.

We are of Italian background, and recently moved to Kelowna. Initially, we were very excited to try this place. Started off with me and my partner waiting by the door for a good 10 minutes before any of the waitresses acknowledged us. The service was extremely slow during the entire experience. We were given a basket with only 2 pieces... More

This place is AWESOME. The food was outstanding...so much so we visited two nights in a row and we were even more impressed the second night. The quality of food is excellent and the service is friendly and efficient. The restaurant make all its own breads, sauces and dishes as well as most of the desserts. The true flavour of... More

This place used to be good a few years ago, but the last two or three times that we have been here, the food is way below par. Not only are the portions smaller, unless you get the lasagna for some reason, the sauces have become tasteless. Especially the tomato sauces. I always order the spicy version, which they offer,...

The service was good and timely. We had some amazing food. I had cheese and spinach stuffed shells with a rose sauce - yum! My husband and his friend each had the cannelloni and it was delish too. The prices were reasonable for the quality. The only small complaints were the tiny dining area was cramped with so many tables... More

Decided to drop by Mamma Rosa's last Saturday night for an early dinner. Got the best table in the house, in the corner by the window. Expert service and pretty good Italian food. Not the best we've ever had but no real complaints. I loved my tortellini with a béchamel sauce (although I always ask for marinara sauce on the... More

My business partner and I decide we wanted to have pasta with seafood. We searched the net and found this restaurant. We selected it because it was small and quaint and the reviews were positive. We asked them to make something not exactly on menu and it was pasta with olive oil, garlic and seafood. The pasta was home made... More

So unbelievably unimpressed with everything to do with this restaurant, the service... Sucks, The prices.. SUCK Everything about this place has gone extremely downhill, I highly recommend The Old Spaghetti Factory over Mamma Rosas anyday. The only thing still real about Mamma Rosas is Mamma Rosa herself. James Anfuso needs to put her in charge.. Maybe then they would get... More
