This place was busy the entire week we were there! So we had to try it, but we were very disappointed. The homemade spaghetti was not good. The noodles were too thick and the sauce was very lackluster. The one upside was the bread! It was fantastic!

This is a very nice relaxed place, with Great Italian Food! The food is great, the service is great, the prices are right! It's right on the river, with inside and out side seating. You can't go wrong with this one! If your lucky there might even be someone on the outside patio that may be playing music. It's just... More

My mom and I went here while visiting Estes Park. We wanted good Italian food and we sure found it at Mama Rose's!! The food came fast and the service was wonderful. We also got lucky enough to have a beautiful night to enjoy the patio, which was a plus!

Situated along the Big Thompson riverwalk with a traditional western style dining room and porch seating optional. Varied and affordable menu items happily prepared with our requested substitutions.

The quality of the food was great, lovely environment which is nice as they are not in a hurry to feed you and get you out. And that's fair, because if you are going to pay for ambiance in your restaurant, they shouldn't be pushing you out the door. I could have used a couple of more ounces on the... More

We ate here with some friends recently. We all had a most enjoyable meal (albeit the Arrabiata sauce was rather spicy), with a nice bottle of wine as accompaniment. Service was good and not obtrusive. The prices were reasonable too. Would recommend

The restaurant was packed and you could hardly hear the person next to you. Service was friendly but they were managing lots of tables and groups so we didn't see much of our waitress. Food was fine but the restaurant atmosphere was so uncomfortable that I think it changed how I felt about the food. The porch is lovely maybe... More

We were on a family vacation with our young adult kids. We have a table outside with incredible music playing and just a wonderful setting. The food was really really good. Everything we tried we loved.

We had dinner here on our first night in Estes park. We were warmly greeted and had a short wait. My wife had shrimp scampi and I had a lasagna dinner. The lasagna had full or half orders and I pigged out. It came with a salad and garlic bread. Food was delicious but the young man who was our... More

We ate there with a group of 10 yesterday evening. Everyone pronounced their meals quite good. My vegetarian lasagna was the best lasagna I have ever eaten! Portions are quite large, so you may want to consider the half-portions where offered. After some mixup with the checks, everything was straightened out to our satisfaction.
