About Us

Mamma Rosa Ristorante and Pizzeria has operated from its current premises in suburban Kohimarama since 1988, having become an institution and landmark of the area, renowned for its tasty food, cosy atmosphere and homely service. 

Owned and operated by the Vitali family, Mamma Rosa’s is the most recent creation by this family which has to date enjoyed a 40-year history in Auckland’s hospitality industry.   This period has seen them establish cafes and restaurants in Mission Bay and Herne Bay, before creating Mamma Rosa Ristorante and Pizzeria in Kohimarama.  They also founded Vitali’s Gelato in Queen Street, Auckland, which supplied gelato to both the public and Auckland restaurants.

One outstanding feature is that in all the Vitali family’s establishments, their pasta has always been made fresh on their own premises. 

The staff at Mamma Rosa Ristorante and Pizzeria enjoy providing warm, informal and attentive service, in keeping with the finest traditions of Italian hospitality.
