Not sure why everyone says this place is so good, I went here once for a meal and was disappointed....pasta bland and both tasted the same wayyyyy to much on the plate , service was below average ..shoved on a tiny table with no room to move and barely fit our meals on ..we haven't returned and won't be again

We visited Mama Rosa's for a special family birthday gathering. They couldn't have been more accommodating. Fantastic tasty food, great service - staff there whenever you needed anything but not overbearing/ hovering around. It was a hot day but the restaurant was lovely and cool. Thank you Mama Rosa's!

We had another great meal at Mama Rosa's. It's always a pleasure to see the staff and have great food. Will be back again after their summer break. Highly Recommended.

I went here again recently for lunch with my husband. The food is still delicious and the service was fast, the staff are always friendly. As we went at lunchtime we got the lunch menu which is really good value. I will be going again as it is so good! Best to book to guarantee a table.

We eat here regularly and the food is well cooked home style Italian. The portions are a good size and the sauces are freshly cooked and delicious. The service is efficient and friendly. The only down side is the seating, this is on hard wooden chairs with no upholstery or cushions and is not very comfortable. They have a good... More

It is a busy and popular restaurant, but I don't know why! I have never tasted such a greasy meal. The sautéed potatoes should've been golden brown but they were dark brown/black and smelt and tasted burnt. They were definitely deep fried, rather than cooked as they should be (lightly fried) and the mixed veg left a pool of oil... More

Back in the UK for another visit I was told about Mama Rosa's for great Italian cuisine...with some reservations I decided to give it a try. An amazing taste sensation with a genuine authenticity waited for us Having eaten Italian food all over Italy and those other two great Italian cities (Melbourne and New York) I would have to say...

This time we were taken here with our son and Granddaughters for 'Father's Day' and once again we were very impressed with our meal, the buzz and quality of the food was excellent, and we would go back again, as would our family, only one Granddaughter went with us before and she loved it so was keen to be going...
