Good, tasty food with friendly staff. The salmon bruschetta was a nice variation and the lobster canneloni was enjoyable. The prices are a little bit on the high side, but I would go back if I was in the area.

We checked out the "authentic" Italian cuisine here the other night and I must say, I was very disappointed. This place goes more on it's name that giving quality experience to their patrons. I would never go back. $30 for a $8 pasta dish... not worth even talking about.

Mamma Rosa is supposed to be real Italian kitchen. I had a pizza there and it was anything but real Italian pizza. The staff is friendly and the space is nice. The prices are ridiculous, though.

Excellent food. Best Italian resturant in Kelowna. Haven't been to the resturant yet but have ordered take out many times. Well worth the price for exceptional food.

We were looking for a small, good Italian restaurant in the downtown area. Mamma Rosa's was the top suggested for the area we were in. The food, ambiance, staff all top notch! Highly recommend if you want to stay away from the big box restaurant chains.

A special celebration meant a dinner at a favourite, and the food didn't disappoint. Started with primavera bruschetta, Italian beer - both excellent. Seafood shells, crab and shrimp ravioli and spinach shells were the entrees and as before the food was excellent. A warning that these dishes aren't for you if you are on a diet! Although the restaurant was... More
