Very Good atmosphere and excellent Italian food. We had a large group of 24 ....not an easy task for any restaurant. The staff did an outstanding job waiting on and serving our group. The food is very traditional Italian fare with a choice of proteins from the sea to the farm. Entrees were excellent and all of us were impressed... More

Very good food. I had a seafood pasta dish that was outstanding. The bread that was brought out with the olive oil was great. I was a little surprised that they didn't grate the parmesan at your table. It was brought out in a little bowl. Fresh would have been better. The crème broule for dessert was excellent. Great wait... More

We had excellent food good, good drinks and pretty decent service. But in all honesty the service was better from the busser than anything. That guy was the man. He needs to be a server, he would get things done a lot quicker.

I booked Rosa's for our annual company New Years dinner. All 10 of us were impressed with the cocktails, appetizers, salads, entrees, wine and deserts. Great classic Italian retaurant, good for business meals as well as casual meals if you are looking for something special. Nice soft piano music (live) added to the ambiance.

I eat here one time a year when I'm in SoCal for business. The food is always delicious. I had the chef's snapper, which was wonderful. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was I thought the rice side was a little bland. Service is impeccable and the piano player is warm and inviting without being over the... More

Rosa's has very good reviews, but I found our dinner to be just good... The restaurant is clean and nice. The piano music was relaxing, but the waiters are robotic - same lines to each table, short answers, quick to come and go and long to come back and check on drinks. We had the calamari and it was average.... More

The service was terrible and the food when arrived was cold. Restaurant had two pieces of music going on; one loud and one subdued; enough to drive you nuts.

I have seen this restaurant previously when I travel down to Ontario for business, but it was never open. It may have been that I had arrived to late, even though it was only about 8 p.m. This time it was open so our group decided to give it a try. There was a decent selection on the menu, but... More

I have referred Rosas Italian Resturant to my friends and acquaintances for over 4 years. I live 1 hour from the restaurant but would go for lunch or dinner. It was that good. I took 4 new persons to Rosas in January 2015,and in February25 I took 2 more new clients for dinner. I was embarrassed, as the food was... More
