I love this restaurant. The food is absolutely 100% authentic, cooked to perfection EVERY TIME. Service is always attentive without being in your face. Always a warm and friendly welcome, great ambience, great food and great value for money. Please keep up the great work. I'll be back real soon.


My first experience of Mama Rosa's was at my stable yard's Christmas do, I'd never heard of it before but was VERY pleasantly surprised. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere great. We have since been back there twice, once with my family who all equally loved it (my dad adored the veal!) and once again with the horsey girls and we again were not disappointed. I would always choose this restaurant over any others locally. The food is wonderful, staff friendly and very reasonable prices!
