Different from most Italian restaurants, which are decorated with extravagant furniture that fit for kings and queens, Mamma Rosy set itself apart with its homey and relaxing interior. Set inside a huge ex Balinese house, Mamma Rosy is an Italian restaurant that offers not only authentic but also homemade cuisine cooked by non-other than Mamma Rosy herself.
As it is such a rare moment for me to explore Kemang (and after hearing about the restaurant's seductive food), I decided to order loads of food to satisfy my intense craving. Of course, I was happy to be able to share them with my family.
I may have to apologise. As I didn’t try the bread, I cannot explain how they were like. Nevertheless, my mom seemed to be enjoying herself.
Wrong Bruschetta (IDR 79K++)
Fluffy and crispy focaccia. Half of them were flavoured with garlic rucola sauce and some parmesan, while the other halves were topped with tuna sauce and some dried tomatoes. The garlic rucola sauce was delicate but still flavourful, and the parmesan did not steal the spotlight from the sauce. It was an excellent harmony. Wrong Bruschetta? More like a rightful bruschetta!
Burrata (IDR 189K++).
My sister was deeply enthusiastic about this cheese menu. She went as far as ordering the dish a day before, which I’m sure she didn’t regret. It was a pleasant balance of fresh, sweet, sour tomatoes, milky burrata cheese, and a tantalising flavour of pesto. Bursting with freshness and addictingly tasty!
Karnivora Pizza (IDR 129K++)
Thin, smoky, crisp pizza flavoured with a gentle, savoury taste of salt, and awakening tomato fragrance.
Ravioli Con Aioli (IDR 49K++)
Crunchy ravioli stuffed with scrumptious beef. It was a genuine satisfaction.
Spaghetti A.O.P - Aglio, Olio e Peperoncini (IDR 99K++)
Al dente spaghetti paired with some rich olive oil. Just simply good!
Risotti Al Funghi (IDR 109K++)
From the impressive texture to the deep mushroomy flavour, the dish scored an awesome victory.
Tagliatelle Funghi (IDR 99K++)
The pasta was tossed in the similar creamy mushroomy sauce that the Risotti was bathed in. For some reason, the sauce matched less with the tagliatelle, but still palatable.
Fusilli Carbonara (IDR 99K++)
This pasta was too basic. The other wonderful meals outshined it.
Last but not least:
Panna Cotta (IDR 39K++)
Without a shred of doubt in my mind, this was one of the most charming panna cotta that I've ever had in my blogging years. The smooth custard and its modest sweetness delighted my taste bud. There sure are a bunch of cafés and restaurants that serve similar desserts, but this panna cotta by Mamma Rosy was not tiring by any means.
It's true that the menu can be a little too cheesy and heavy for some people, but MammaRosy’s authenticity has helped the restaurant to rise as a favourite among youngsters and even tourists from around the world. Apart from being traditional and reasonably priced, the food is made from a Mother's love. Everybody would love to gorge on mum-made delicious food.
