Wonderful elegant Restaurant. Rossinis is Italian, and with such a wonderful view of the Thames, where you can eat outside or inside, it makes it a very special occasion. Staff are attentive and fun

An idyllic setting, simply nothing compares. Serene, peaceful, private and elegant. The staff are all Italian and could not have tried harder to ensure that our special day went as well as could ever be hoped for. The manager Maurizio is attentive, helpful in the extreme, enthusiastic and very well organised. The chef is simply fantastic and the food is... More

We found Rossini by googling for a suitable restaurant nearby and we were not disappointed. We arrived early for lunch but we were shown to our table immediately. Food and drink-we felt- were reasonably priced for the quality. We had to wait for the main course but we had expected that would be the case in a restaurant that clearly... More

Three of us met for lunch here at 12.30pm. When we sat down the restaurant was empty, but it took three hours for us to be served two courses and coffee. This is not acceptable. Service was grudging, and we were not made to feel welcome. Food was OK and reasonably priced and the location is great, but this did... More

We have been visiting Rossini in Wokingham for nearly 20 years. This new Rossini opened at the old Leatherne Bottel in Goring last summer. This was our first visit for our anniversary and we weren't disappointed. Great setting, great food and wonderful service by all the staff - even taken back to our hotel by Maurizio! Would definitely recommend and... More

Pluses here are the location looking out over the river, and the quality of the food (accept the comp'd appetizer which was too plain and untasty). But it is let down by service. We arrived a few minutes after our booking time and had to wait 15mins for a table. We saw walk-ins get tables faster. Shown to a table... More

Had a table for four people by the window in the conservatory on a beautiful summer evening. All four mains, one starter and two desserts were cooked really well, great flavours with the sauces and lovely tirimisu. Service was very good, a good balance of attentiveness without any sense of being dictated to by schedule. Over all had an excellent... More
