I have to say I was impressed with Rosa's to say the least. After trying several other that have higher ranks from Trip Advisor I fell back on my GPS for directions to any Italian eatery. The first two I wanted to go to were on 19th ave in the middle of the slums. And slums is putting it nice.... More

Wow! Where do I begin. The hostess who seat us seemed like she had a really bad day. No smile or greeting - she just said table for 2? This is a large restaurant, fairly bright lit and it had vinyl booths and what looks like oilskin tablecloths on the table - slick. The hostess was very pleasant but service... More

Not only is this some of the best Italian food in town but the staff was most accommodating. This was my husbands favorite so we had a celebration of life in the banquet room on Saturday for 33 family & friends. They opened at 2:30 pm for our private party when the regular business hour begins at 4 pm on... More

We very seldom order takeout but highly recommend Rosa's when the occasion presents itself. The food was great and packed in high quality containers that kept it warm and easy to serve. The wait time was reasonable and the staff was very helpful in assisting us select the right variety and portions needed for our party of six adults. We... More

Rosa's is ok but nothing special. It has been around for a long time and I would recommend it. Very good pizza

I was taken here for lunch when on a business visit to Bakersfield. Attentative personal service, and the food was lovely. Natural flavours and seasoning - soft pasta - raviolli that is not over burdened with pasta so you don't taste the meat inside. Equally not over covering the food in sauce, makes for a nice italian taste sensation! Pleasure... More

Terrible service. Loud even when fairly empty. Extremely over priced for the quality of the very bland food (and I don't like a lot of seasoning). It would of been overpriced even if I liked the food. But the absolute worst thing about the place was the tipping policy. I am traditional in that I still base tipping on service,... More
