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 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

We were driving to another restaurant when we spotted Rosa's. What a marvelous surprise! Food was excellent and service was unbeatable. We recommend the dessert of ice cream and fresh berries. The cone was made of sliced almonds and crystalized caramel. One was fully enough for two to share. Wonderful dinner!

We had a lovely dinner here. The serving staff was absolutely wonderful and balanced service with privacy. The food was outstanding. We had the spinach salad, lentil soup and rigatoni. We topped that off with creme brûlée and coffee. Everything was done to perfection. We will be back.

A group of us from work came here for dinner. Everyone was genuinely impressed with the food. Some had pasta, others had salads, I had veal. All were beautifully prepared. The desserts were fabulous. I'm on a diet, so I only got to look at the others' desserts, but they sure looked pretty! Service was impeccable. Professional and attentive (but... More
