Note this was on a Monday night in an empty restaurant sitting at the bar. The food was good, real good, but not spectacular where you can charge $22 for linguini and clam sauce equivilent to any chain restaurant. My server/bartender carried on a conversation with a couple seated at a table the entire evening over directly over my head.... More

Great wine list and starter selection. The rosemary rolls were delicious!! My chicken was very flavorful but a bit dry. The accompanying mashed potatoes were amazing. The atmosphere was nothing special. It was quite loud, so it was hard to have a private conversation. I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic dinner.

My wife and I found this restaurant while we were waiting to pick up some people at the local airport. It was recommended and we assume that it would just be a really decent restaurant. It turned out that it was one of the nicer restaurants we have enjoyed in the near past. The food was outstanding. Would we go... More

Food & ambiance is exceptional. Lots of business folks having dinner. I would be very comfortable eating there alone if on a business trip.

you like Italian, this is a good one. Plates are about $20+ but worth it. Super friendly staff but they know their stuff.

Nice italian dining - medium to high priced. Traveled in a group setting and would only take one credit card. Otherwise, good place to eat.

The manager of the company I was visiting recommended Rosa’s for great Italian food, and he was spot-on. I went on a week night, and was quickly shown to a table. It was apparent that the wait staff was working together like a fine watch. Needs were anticipated and acted on immediately, and the timing of the service was perfectly... More

Eat here once a year when I come to the Quilt Show. The food and services were outstanding as usual. We shared desert. It was ice cream in a nut basket which was a great way to end the meal.

My server was excellent. He was very attentive and friendly. I ordered the Chicken San Marino, which according to the menu and waiter was similar to chicken piccata. Unfortunately, the chicken was grilled and the sauce added after so the chicken had the flavor of a grilled breast, not the flavor of the sauce. It really did not go together.... More
