I went for a meal on a Friday night with 7 friends, having never been to Mama Rosa’s before. My friends all raved about the food and how good it was so I thought I was in for the best Italian meal of my life. Currently that spot is filled by L’taliana in St Albans still... I ordered spaghetti carbonara because I figured you can’t go wrong with that and I was impressed to see it was made with eggs rather than cream. When it arrived it was just a white creamy sauce, over cooked pasta and not a lot of flavours. I tried my friends pasta dish which was meat and a tomato sauce and found this was also bland and ridiculously creamy despite being a tomato sauce ... I kept my opinions of the food to myself so not to offend my friends as they all loved it. It seemed pretty fresh it was just lacking any flavour? It seemed a very family friendly place and good for a family meal but I wouldn’t recommend it if you were after a fresh new Italian food experience? The service was good asside from the fact the waiters sent one of our friends out to get us when we were having a cigarette because they thought we’d done a runnner. Over all I think it would be a nice place to take granny if you had her on day release from one of the many old people’s homes in town.
