You can tell the popularity of a restaurant when you walk in early evening and the place is well over half full, as was the case when we entered this little gem. The food was well presented and tasty, the service prompt and friendly. I want to return and eat here again, very impressed!

This was our first visit to "La Rosetta," and we weren't disappointed despite hearing mixed reviews before going. The restaurant was cosy and welcoming, the food delicious, and the service friendly and prompt. There were 4 of us in our party and we all ate different dishes, which were all well seasoned and extremely tasty. The bill for the evening... More

Food as good as in Italy with authentic soups. Pasts dishes a belly buster. Only one gripe and this would not happen in the summer but as first time customers we were given a table in the direct line of the icy blasts from the door each time it opened. Possibly we should have asked to be moved. Good atmosphere... More

Both our meals were very good , but specifically the steak which was a rump steak in a brandy and mustard sauce.We could glance across and see the food being cooked in the kitchen and also notice how clean everything was throughout the restaurant. It was a busy evening for the chefs and waitresses but we received good service throughout... More

We loved the food and the service was good, but the tables were a joke. A table for two just holds your plate and a drink, but we had to put our side dishes on the next table. Had the restaurant been fully occupied I do not know what we could have done. Somewhat spoiled the evening. Had it not... More

We have visited Sidmouth for many years but this was the first time we had been to this restaurant. I would highly recommend it. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, excellent food and a real good atmosphere. We shall definitely visit again when we are in the area

Having been here 12 years ago and suffered one of the worst meals ever this was a belated second chance! What a great little place it is now. Totally different; the atmosphere was excellent and buzzy, food was all fab except for the over gelatinous panacotta and the staff were friendly and largely on the ball (white wine delivered without...
