My husband and I ate here today after reading the reviews. We had lunch, he had the lasagna and I had the ziti, both with side salads and garlic bread. This is one of most delicious Italian meals that we've had in quite a while. Their sauce is a bit thick, coating the noodles and sticking to them without dripping... More

This local establishment is a place to try in Cookeville, TN. I have eaten at Mamma Rosa's for for years and I love it! I only get the Stromboli for the most part. I have tried a sampler plate and I did not care for the Lasagna, but overall this is a great place to go eat Italian food. Keep... More

Been enjoying Mamma Rosa's Strombolis since the mid nineties and it's still the best I have had. Plentiful with always enough to take home and finish later.

This was our first time at Mamma Rosa's, on the recommendation of a friend who frequents this wonderful little place. We were looking for authentic New York pizza, having been advised that Mamma Rosa was originally from NY and brought her cooking expertise to TN. The pizza was everything we have been looking for since we moved here in 2011!!!!!... More

Always consistently wonderful. Go out of my way to visit when I am nearby. If you can't decide what to try the combination is always good and there is enough for lunch the next day!

We are from Chicago so deep dish pizza has a different connotation to us then to most people wait for her to be deep dish pizza which really was more of a thick crust. The sauce was tasty, the crust well-known done but bready , not enough cheese but not bad. Will come back and try something else

I have ate here many times. Great Italian food at great prices. Wonderful staff and atmosphere. The pizza can be made any way you like and its wonderful. The dish portions are very generous. You will need to go boxes.

The food is OK, but the interior is tired. Rips on seating and worn floor. Some folks love this place but I will not go back. We also has a takeout pizza with friends and were disapponted. World Foods pizza is way better.

Looking for a local meal. This was a good place for family and friends. Had combo dinner. It would be better if all meals did not have red sauce on the. Get the garlic bread, wonderful.
