This is one of the best places I ate at in a really long time. food was great. Staff on top of their job and full of personality.
What a beautiful place, the decor is amazing! The food was very disappointing though. The chicken was dry & the sauce gave me heartburn. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Although the waiterwaitress staff was truly AMAZING! Courteous & GREAT Service!!! Too bad the food wasn`t good
we wanted to try this place for the first time. food was ok, pizza was good. service was even worse. our waitress took a long time, it wasnt busy.
Bella Mama Rose restaurant feels like home and they serve really good quality food just like one would get home. Some of the recommendable dishes that I've been served here overtime include the homemade Mozzarella and famous roasted peppers for appetizer then the really filling Italian Combo sandwich made of salami, sopressata, mozzarella, roasted peppers and balsamic vinegar. A really nutritious addition would be the field green salad with grilled chicken. Another particularly well made dish is the Chicken Parmagiana, Francaise or Marsala for Entree. The restaurant is open all days of the week and offers delivery services. The service by the waiters was really fast, friendly and informative and the orders came out as fast and as exact as I had expected them to be. Can't wait to be back in town to try more of the good food and will certainly bring a friend to share this good experience.
If you are a person who appreciates quality, fresh-made food, then you can not get a better meal anywhere, this place is so good...I have been there at least 60 times in the past three years...consistently top-quality...the boss adds some special dishes often, so there is always something to look forward to and be surprised about. Best fried calamari to be found Anywhere. Generous portions...if you come at lunchtime on weekdays, you get the meals at a greatly-reduced "special" price. This is absolutely the place to bring the family for a special dine-out occasion! Order "family-style", and get larger portions suitable for 4-6 people. AND...try the thin, crispy-crust pizza...if you don't quite see your favorite concoction on the menu, they will make AnyThing up for you...ask for a grilled blackened cajun shrimp with vodka sauce pizza...man, you can taste every bit of each ingredient...nothing gets "wiped out" due to too much of anything else, etc. Be sure to go around the "holidays", and get their Baccala...OUTSTANDING!!!Summer time they make a terrific crab sauce to go with the pasta...even the salads are super, and they have some of the best dressings I've ever tasted...particularly the Citrus one that is served on the grilled shrimp w mixed green salad...by the way, the portions are quite substantial...if you aren't very hungry, order a salad w grilled chiken, shrimp, etc., and you will leave the place really fullfilled!! The food takes time to come out of the kitchen..a good sign, if you ask me...everything is prepared fresh...if you go and see the pappardele on the specials menu, GET IT!!! Or, if you're a seafoodie, you Must try the "baked" shrimpcalamari appetizer...OUT OF THIS WORLD!! Desserts are great, also..fresh-filled cannoli, super-delicious bread puddin', etc...and have espresso with those!!! GO THERE!!!!
Only one word to describe the experience,and that word is Outrageous!!! the food was excellent and the staff was attentive and professional. I will definitely put this place on the top of my list of restaurants on Staten Island,
I dined at Bella Mama Rose recently, and I wasn't totally pleased with the experience. I didn't get the "family atmosphere" feeling and I wasn't pleased with payment of the bill afterward. We had a coupon they said didn't apply, when there was plainly another coupon on the same sheet that did apply. It turned me off to this restaurant. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't fantastic either. I won't go back there again.
After patronizing this restaurant for many years and the food having been good, after our experience this evening, we will NEVER dinie here again! The service is HORRIBLE! The Management and the owner have a nasty attitude and do not know how to handle customers! We had a 5pm reservation, which upon our arrival we were told that the reservation was made for 6pm, in addittion, we were not seated until 5:45pm and after the waiter spilling a hot tray of baked clams on my mother and no one apologizing, we were still waiting to be served our entrees at 7:45pm! The owner blamed us for having such a large party and told us pay for our appetizers and he will tell the chef not to cook the entrees! I would summize that business is BOOMING as they let a party of 24 WALK out because the SERVICE IS THE WORST!!! WILL NEVER GO HERE AGAIN!! DO NOT RECOMMEND!!
Yum, yum, yummy the food is INCREDIBLE. I have now eaten there several times. Each time I try a new dish & simply can't figure whcih one I liked the best. Scrumptious!!!! The staff was so courteous & the decor is that of a Manhattan restaurant. I give it a 5 STAR rating!!!!
The staff is very nice and attentive, and the decor is great, but the food is really just OK in my opinion. There are better places in Staten Island for sure.
