When you walk in the door, you are greeted with the aroma of garlic and wonderful marinara sauce. Although you have to place your order at the counter, they bring it to your table when prepared. The portions are huge and the price is reasonable. I have tried two different salads, the ravioli, and their pizza. Awesome! It is family... More

This is a local place that has very good pizza---not a chain. We use delivery or pick up the pizza and are always satisfied. Also, they have very good side salads. The service is always friendly and good.

We really like their pizza and lasagna. Their lasagna is so light, not heavy and greasy like many other places. Prices are reasonable. I still want to try a meatball sandwich but haven't yet. Wines are limited to one red and one white, neither is great but in a pinch will do. Beer is also available. Very small salad bar.

We love Rose's. We were disappointed when they moved...past experiences have shown me with new locations come new (higher) prices! Not at Rose's. There pizza is quite reasonable...the other food is excellent as well...try the spicy chicken! The service is awesome...the owners are there to see to it. Take out...eat in...either way you will be happy to visited Rose's ....... More

I'm from NY and moved to Murrieta (where my husband is from) when I got married. For years I hated all the pizza around here, then we found Mama Rose's. It was so excellent and immediately became our go to pizza place. We always order the exact same thing and for about a year we always loved it. Over the... More

I reviewed this restaurant several months ago. We have since returned to Mama Rose's and I must write about the absolutely horrible experience we had. When we arrived at the restaurant we noticed there were two men waiting for take out orders. They did not look happy. This should have been a clue to us. We ordered our pizza and... More

Mama Rosas is one of those places that makes an honest pizza that tastes very fresh. The owners are nice people that make you feel at home. The restaurant is clean and conveniently located. My only dislike is the other Italian dishes such as spaghetti and lasagna. Stay away from these and stick to the pizza.

The pepperoni pizza was the best I've ever had. The Happy Hour is between 2pm and 6pm Sunday through Thursday night. Pints are only $2 and you can get Stone, Sam Adams, Coors Light, Newcastle and Blue Moon among others. There are also a couple flat screens to watch sports and a small arcade area for the kids. Location is... More

It's very good, the sauce is tasty, not overpowering. We like the lasagna the best. It is not heavy, but light, even though it is plentiful in layers. Melts in your mouth, yumm! They offer a small salad bar, beer and limited wine.
