We have eaten at Mam Rose's for many years when we visit Estes Park. Good Italian menu, good wine list, comfortable setting, pasta prepared properly and served correctly, zucchini pasta available to substitute for wheat pasta, generous salads and tasty garlic bread, and all for...More

I totally loved the pasta dish I ordered, and the wine was good too. My only complaint would be the service. Maybe it was just a bad night, but we barely saw our waiter and he wasn't very friendly or helpful when we did see...More

Ask to be seated by the fireplace on a cold afternoon or evening and get away from the crowds of Estes. The food is homemade and the wine is gentle. The real joy of this restaurant is the staff, the peaceful quiet, and the feeling...More

Friendly staff, great lunch menu, comfortable setting to watch the Denver Broncos play football. Easy walk from Stanley Hotel.

Restaurant had excellent appearance, clean and neat. Waiter very pleasant but not well trained. Good choices of wine but very unhappy with the food. Will not be on our list to return to.

I try to go here every year I am in Estes. This past visit was not up to par. We arrived early for our reservation and the host said, "Glad you got here early. We want to shut this place down at 8 and get...More

Doesn't it all start with good service? And Javier was very good and efficient. The decor is very nice, perhaps a bit aged, but comfortable. We ordered wine and both of us had traditional pasta. They provided a nice dinner salad and then the pasta...More

Although we had to wait over a half hour for a table on the busy Elk Fest weekend (my fault for not reserving a table beforehand), our simple meal of fettucine with sausage, eggplant parmigiana, salad, bread and good wine made it well worth the...More
