There were 11 people in our group. Shawn, our only waiter, was pleasant and did an excellent job taking care of everyone's order and filling our glasses. There was plenty to eat on the entrée dishes; however the salads were just iceberg lettuce (not fit for a restaurant) and a little tomato and onion. Two of us ordered the Mama... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch. Food was very good. I had seafood ravioli with a la vodka sauce, it was delicious. Husband had spaghetti and meatballs, which he enjoyed. Service was rather inefficient. We did not get any bread and couldn't get our server's attention to ask for it until we were almost done. Drinks were not refilled, and... More

Have never been so disrespected by a business in all of my life as I was at Mama Rosa's Italian Restaurant in Hampton. An old colleague and I decided to meet up at this place after finding it within a reasonable distance. I ordered linguine in Alfredo sauce and scallops. The scallops were disgustingly gritty. I asked the waitress if... More

My personal favorite is the Penn a la vodka with shrimp. Always two meals and just as delicious reheated. The garlic knots are a family favorite. We too use the delivery service for pizza and subs. We love everything from here.

I usually just get take out from Mama Rosa's. Their pizza is better than all the other independent Italian Restaurants around and WAY better than all the franchise crap. Very tasty meatballs too ! Reminds me of the great pizza I used to get in New Jersey.

We first went there for my friends wedding dinner. It was the place that they often went and where the husband asked his wife to marry him by having the restaurant put the ring in the desert. The food was excellent. We went back with our friends at two later dates and found the food and service very good. We... More

Very expensive for a mom &a pop place. I ordered a calzone to pick up and there was ONE piece of meat and about 8 pieces of veggies. I complained and asked for my $ back and the MOD said yes but when I went to get it the owner was a complete jerk! Never acknowledged me or apologized!
