“Couldn't have been worse - terrible food and staff unwilling to accept my word”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

I am just after returning my take out food to this restaurant. The
food was inedible-the pasta had little to no sauce on it, the bacon
was under-cooked, the caesar salad was limp and had clearly been
sitting in the sauce for a long time as the croutons were soggy. We
ordered the stuffed artichoke on the recommendation of the waiter but
it resembled dog food when we opened it. We had heard good things
about this restaurant from our neighbors (we are new to the area) but
we were very disappointed. I returned the food to the restaurant and
was not treated well by the staff-they questioned how I could have
found the food so bad, accused me of dropping the food (I returned it
in the take out boxes), and challenged my request to get a refund. I eventually got the refund.

I do not intend to visit your restaurant ever again
following this incident. I was looking forward to a nice meal on a
friday night after work, but instead felt ill after tasting this food,
am out of pocket over $47 and still hungry. Do not eat here

“Not the same”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

This is the former Luce's which was owned by the same owners as Tombolino Yonkers. Luce's was a favorite, with real homestyle Italian specialties, but the new menu at mamma rosa is just not as good. Will try again in February.

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

My family recently visited Mamma Rosa Ristorante - note it is Mamma with 2 m's. We were a party of five and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. My dad had the veal chop special which was superb. I had the spinach and walnut ravioli which was another good choice. The service was super and the owner/chef came out and asked how everything was. I noticed he greeted all the patrons making sure everyone was satisfied with the food and service. It is a nice extra to have the owner come around to make sure you are happy with your meal. I would recommend Mamma Rosa. My mom has been there for lunch as well and she raved about the food - and trust me she's fussy!

“no longer in business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

Although a good place, it is now taken over by Mama Rosa - which is excellent. See reviews for Mama Rosa.

“Big Fan from Armonk- Glad you are now in Somers"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

I have had your food numerous times when you had Onda Blu in Armonk and I worked down there. Now that I work and live close to Somers you are a welcome sight old friend. Food is delicious, always fresh and plentiful. We came for a big celebration dinner but will be back with my husband alone one night soon for a drink and quick bite. Welcome and glad to have you in the neighborhood!
