Whilst the decor is a bit tired and in need of some TLC the pizza and pastas are fresh and tasty. Service is efficient, friendly and welcoming. Great to see a local neighborhood place with charm and character doing so well. Good job!

We have eaten here on a couple of occasions as a family when visiting the area and the food has always been of a good standard and nice staff. Good choice for a family meal. The restaurant needs a little TLC or refurb to bring the facilities up to date but good food

My husband & i took our 3 children to Mama Rosa's one teatime last week. This restaurant had always been a favourite of mine growing up however I don't think I'd go back again now. The toilet facilities are disgusting for a restaurant for a start, not what you expect at all. The staff were very friendly but service was... More

We traditionally come here for our anniversary/date night. I would advise anyone who goes to go hungry as the portions are very generous! Staff are always friendly, their meals a good price and they'll even order a taxi for you at the end! One of our favourites!

Have been a customer for many years, staff are wonderful, efficient, attentive, remember their regulars names. Food always fresh and of excellent standard. Great family atmosphere early evening becoming more grown up later on.They also have Brunos and the excellent Salthouse further along the street.

We have ate here quite a few times in recent weeks and have to say its still one of the best places to eat down the coast. The atmosphere is always great in there, the food is fab and is backed up with fantastic service. At times it can be really busy and the staff never stop but you always... More

Lots of other tables were filled up by then. All of them had there main meals and we were still waiting. We raised this issue with the... More

I have to say I can't stop raving about this place! It was incredibly busy when we went this time (bank holiday weekend) yet it doesn't matter how busy it is, the staff are always helpful and efficient. The food is excellent, I have never had a disappointing meal here. It is a very casual restaurant but the food is... More

One of our favourite locals ! Food is excellent, staff are fantastic but the toilets have needed a refurbishment for the past 10 years! Get to it!
