Very nice dinner near Convention Center

Rosa's serves delicious Italian food and the atmosphere is relaxing, yet very nice. My husband ordered the cioppino and they served so much we had leftovers in our motel room for 2 days! Our waiter was very attentive and the hostess managed to find us a comfortable table despite the fact that it... read more

The service was okay. The food is over priced. There menu is incomplete. You have to ask for other dinner items. There is other places that provide a better menu choices.

I think the management has changes here. The quality of the food is not like I remember. The prices have increased, while the food quality has not.

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
