Little Sicily is right here in Kelowna on Lawrence Ave. I was looking for an Italian restaurant for our date night and thanks to trip advisor steered me to Mamma Rosa's. My wife learned how to cook Italian by her ex-mother in law who was from Sicily.....my wife raved about her dinner last night!!! A great atmosphere, very quaint, excellent... More

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

We lived in Kelowna for 23 years and celebrated our anniversary at Mama Rosa's almost very year. We moved away three years ago - this year we made a special trip back just to be at Mama's Rosa's! The menu has a choice for every taste. We like the seafood dishes, but there is lots of beef and pollo and... More

We walked in on a Thursday night, and were lucky to get a seat straight away. Customers coming in later were being booked for later times. We only had a pasta course each - the Lobster Cannelloni & and the Penne Arrabbiata. Both were delicious, and came with a side serving of garlic bread. Despite the restaurant being full, the...

Definitely make a reservation for this spot. We went on a Tuesday night and were glad we'd called ahead as it's a small place, but that only adds to the atmosphere. Very quaint, cute decor. The food was excellent too. The lasagna was fantastic!

We were greeted by a very snarky individual who threw the menus on a table and walked away. We asked to be moved to another table and were simply told NO. At that point we left, didn't even open the menu. We were really looking forward to having a meal at Momma Rosa's as it came highly recommended.
