Quaint environment, Great Service and Food

Our last dinner in Kelowna. Group of 10 and the service was great. All the food arrived hot and exceeded my expectations. Full meal deal with appetizers, wine, dinner, dessert and coffees. They even made my pasta with rose sauce at request. It was all very good and we left full.

There were four in our party. Each one of us ordered something different. I had the chicken parmigiana with a Caesar salad. The chicken tasted like it was processed meat. Not good and the salad was mediocre. Guest two had the veal parmigiana and it was quite good. Guest three had the veal piccata with lemon and it was good.... More

Coming from New York, I was reluctant to go to any Italian Restaurant in Kelowna but some of the family member insisted to visit this restaurant. I was glad we visited this place. Food was very good. Appetizers food was so much and so good that we could eat all the main dishes and had that food packed to go.... More

Service was quick, friendly staff and food was great. I had a veal pescatori dish with lots of sea food and a cream sauce. I had a side dish linguini with an alfredo sauce. My wife had cannelloni, and my son had lasagne. All come steaming hot with a free oder of garlic bread. Portions were large so we share... 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

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 didn't enjoy it).... 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,...
