Great food, great staff. Make reservations, and it is a little pricey,but worth it. The set menu is to die for. Fresh seafood and the best pizza I have had in Germany.

Consistently great food. Whether home made soup with warm bread on a cold day, a hearty beef steak or a fine pasta Rossano's never fails. If you want a quiet dinner reserve times when the restaurant first opens. Delightful atmosphere but it gets crowded and loud. Reservations recommended as this is a popular place.

Their Italian food is pretty good but a little overpriced. It is usually very busy there and reservations are recommended. It's become more of a date place or a place for special occasions, it seems.

We frequently go to this restaurant with large groups of people. Never had a problem with it like you do at so many other places. They have a great variety of food, a great atmosphere and great wine!

This is a long-time favorite of locals. Consistently good food and a little higher class than some places. In the summer, they usually have a tent with outside seating that's more casual. Reservations are recommended if you want to sit inside.

To start off, I know good Italian food as one of Italian heritage and having traveled extensively in Italy. This is by far the best Italian restaurant with regard to authenticity that one could find in the entire Ansbach area for sure. The place is always busy and the service is more upscale than what one may find in this... More

Rossano was a great experience all around. Charming little restaurant with old-time feel and character. High quality salad, great "spargel" (white asparagus) soup followed by the best pizza I've had in Germany. Also, really good wine all at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend - best meal I've had in the Ansbach area.
