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

We have gone to Rosa's for three years. We make our reservations three months in advance because it is so popular. This year there were 5 of us and we asked for separate checks and were told it couldn't be done. We had been at 4 other restaurants in the area and none of them had a problem with this... More

The service is solid. The food fresh and very well prepared. Went for lunch with business associates, from the pasta to the fish it was very well prepared. Price s high but worth the experience. If there is a negative it is that it is noisy and a bit tight.

We had a large business group here for dinner (about 18 people), with a pre-set menu, so I didn't see the entire menu and can't speak to their offerings. Wine was also pre-ordered, but based on what we had, the wine list can't be bad (Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio and La Crema Pinot Noir). The house salad was tasty, with... More
