My family and I were looking for a nice place to have dinner and we decided to stop at Rosa's Restaurant. It was one of the worst experiences I ever had in a restaurant. At the door We were met by an old woman who appeared very angry for some reason. She asked us angrily without any greetings "Do you... More

I used to love this restaurant but I have to say that lately the food is hit or miss. Sometimes it's really good and sometimes it's a little below average. You still get a lot of food for your money and usually the staff is attentive. You do need reservations as they are only open a few days a week... More

Rosa's Little Italy is named exactly correctly - it's a slice of Italy in Arizona. I'm 100% Italian and this is the best Italian food found probably anywhere in Arizona, let alone in Southeast Arizona. Oh yes, it does not have lots of fancy lights, the hours are limited, it is not one of a chain of Italian restaurants that... More

Recently we ordered veal piccata and one of the combination plates. Everything from the pea soup, salad, bread and entrée was cooked to perfection. The prices are reasonable, portions are huge, and service was attentive. Bring your own bottle with no corkage fee is a great advantage. The restaurant is cash only, but the prices have increased very little over... More

I usually don't like to review restaurants since taste in food is very personal, and so I usually don't review unless there is something really awful. The trip advisor review for this restaurant are mixed and this would not have been our choice if Cafe Roka had been open. Just a few minutes away from Old Bisbee (in Warren) the... More

What an amazing and romantic place to eat. The food is more than we could ever eat in one sitting. Yay for leftovers. Priced very reasonable and cheaper than the other local Italian places. The taste is authentic and amazing. Bring your own beer or wine. They Serve soda, water, tea, etc.. My absolute favorite place to eat...

What we liked: the ambience, corny but quiet, the service, and the soups--except the split pea was needlessly loaded down with frozen green peas. The portions are monstrous, enough pasta for three meals and a side of pasta with meat sauce. The pasta is commercial; the salad is iceberg lettuce, canned olives, and cardboard tomato; the bread is tasteless white... More

We visited this place because of a referral. When we arrived, we were told it was by reservation only. They did, however, allow us in. It's a very small place, hence the reservations needed? We sat down and our server took our order. The owner, I presume, came to our table and said "were you told that we only take... More

We went to Rosa's a few nights ago with a group of Canadian Snowbirds. One lady called ahead for Lasagna, but there were only two servings left which they saved for two people in our party. Everyone else had the special of off menu. Everyone took half their dinner home as there was far to much to eat in one... More

After frequenting Cafe Roka and other fine eateries in Bisbee, I got into the car to see whether the Italian food at Rosas was what some of the reviews suggested. I got there before six, and after 25 minutes, I was told that they were out of lasagna, several ravioli, and various other Italian staples. There were no specials, so... More
