We were at Mama Rosa tonight. We were disappointed overall. My husband ordered a ravioli dish and it came with about 12 ravioli and drowning in sauce. It was also very bland and not nearly worth $22. At the end of the meal we asked to see the dessert tray. One of the waitresses brought it over but said nothing.... More

We had a wonderful dinner here. We are a couple pro ally from Ontario, currently living in Vancouver. We travelled to the Okanagan because we had family visiting who have Italian roots. We were doing wine touring all day and needed a heart pasta meal to finish off our day. We found Mamma Rosa's on Yelp and were not disappointed.... More

Family meal out suitable for all ages and occasions. Excellent service and food. Good wine list and exhaustive menu. Pasta prices are in the mid teens and the more meaty dishes are in the low to mid twenties. Pizza is also available for a reasonable price Décor is causal. Parking on the street was readily available

From the outside, an ordinary Italian eatery. From the inside, a wee bit better. But once you taste the food ... magnificent! The place was packed on a Sunday night, so we were given the last table, by the bar and the entrance to the kitchen. Next to us were families with small children, making the noise small children do.... More

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

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.

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.
