"Wow" is the one word that comes to mind to describe Mamma Rosa! My first impression of walking into the restaurant was how beautiful it was which is something you don't expect from the street...very romantic with soft lights & restaurant filled with plants & beautiful architecture. The night we were in, there was a couple celebrating a special occasion & the waiters had placed balloons, candles, and roses around their table in a private area...very well done. We ordered the 4 cheese ravioli & mixed grill which was exceptional. Then finished off the meal with creme brulee & the best espresso I've had in Ecuador (as good as you'll find in Italy). The owner (Laura) then showed us upstairs to a new air-conditioned seating area along with a VIP room for those who want AC during the hot time of the year. We heard music from around the corner & she said they had a birthday in the karaoke room...she showed us the room with a group having a great time & they even invited us to sing with them. So a few songs later (& a few more cocktails!), we had one of the best nights of our life. If you're looking for great food, wonderful ambience, & some fun, don't miss Mamma Rosa!

A big menu featuring Italian and local fare. The restaurant is owned by a local and her American husband. Food is great, service is fast and the bar is usually busy on the weekends. A nice place to meet locals and visitors/expats alike.

We had a craving for take-out pizza the night I visited Mama Rosa. I ordered pizza to go. The service was efficient and friendly. The pizza had a thin, crisp crust with just the right amount of cheese, although I would have liked a bit more chorizo (but hey that's me).

A decent Italian Restaurant in Manta. Nothing special but better than we expected in an out-of-the-way Ecuadorian city. Very friendly and accomodating service (there were 9 of us), reasonable prices and generous drinks.
