At Mamma Rosa:s we use to ask the waiter for starters of his choise and keep them coming until he thinks it is enough. Every time it has been delicious and very nice with a good variation of food. As almost always in Tirana the food is good and not expensive and for those who also want a main course... More

Yes it was really good Italian restaurant and near by the bllok area, which means very good position to go out for drinks.

small restorant in the Bllok area.. Service is OK, they cook mainly pasta, but for the same price you can have better cooked pasta in other places in the same area. You can try also salads or other first dishes, but be prepared no to expect too much.

Everything was average, not expensive though. Located in a popular area of Tirana. Could have been better service and better cooking, especially the pasta. There were other customers (italian) bothering us with their high voice.

very good Italian cuisine in the middle of Tirana, very good service, and you feel as a part of the family when you are there. To quiet when you are inside but outside its a bit noisy.

The menu is based on Italian pasta, which are made in perfect way. Very delicious and fresh, also you can find some other Italian dishes made also with "love" :-). Small and very nice place.

We found the restaurant just walking in a zone of Tirana full of bars, and Mamma Rosa has this exterior patio that was perfect for the hot weather. We simply choose what they suggested us, and so we had really fresh fish served with a good pasta as well fried as second course. The italian wine was superb (they have... More

+ the salads and pastas are excellent + usually they come in XL sizes (not always :) ) - the service is between bad (on their good days) and horrible (on their bad days; eg: took 15minutes to get the menus, the pastas took 40minutes, they overcharged our bill, no one came to take our money ) i'd still go...
