Rossini's is in a charming location on the Thames. Importantly, the welcome is also charming, with the front of house team both friendly and efficient. If you are looking for something a bit special, with the personal touch and at a fair price Rossini's is definitely worth a visit.

This restaurant is in a great location and offers genuine Italian food, with professional staff and generous portions. We enjoyed seafood starters (squid and octopus salad) which were well presented with fresh ingredients. The Main course steak at £19.50 was great, good quality steak. The portions were large, so we passed on pudding! Coffee was discretely delivered and was fresh.... More

We booked up for an early lunch at this delightful restaurant as we knew that riverside car parking is at a premium. The Italian orientated menu had a good broad selection of choices at reasonable prices. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the wonderfully relaxed ambiance. The staff were smart, very polite and attentive but not obtrusively so. This is... More

Excellent location, good food at good prices but really poor service. As a party of 4 we arrived 5 minutes ahead of our booked time. Waited a bit of time before menus arrived and had to ask for them. Had to ask for a drink before dinner. Waiter seemed surprised! Drinks arrived eventually and then a further 15 minutes before... More

I would like to think my email (that I don't hold out much hope for a reply) explains all......... I am both disappointed and disgusted. "I used your online reservation form yesterday (11/08/15) to book a table for my 10th Wedding anniversary.

We have been visiting both Rossini's for the last three years, our last visit was for my birthday, and we couldn't have picked a better restaurant to celebrate. As usual we received a very warm welcome, Tony and his staff were very attentive, even though they were very busy, with a large party and others like ourselves enjoying a evening... More

As a special teat we visited Rossini at The Leathern Bottel for our wedding anniversary lunch. The welcome was warm and heartfelt and we were looked after very well. We had a lovely table set by the bay window where we could watch the activities on the river. The food was divine. Thankfully, the special deserts were not to my... More

Visited for an anniversary lunch with my wife and daughter. Excellent food and location, attentive staff. Make sure you are hungry when you visit food is not only excellent but also plentiful.
