The food was good and the service fine, but it is a very noisy restaurant on a Saturday evening. Most of our table of 7 ordered the specials of the evening. The food was good, but not great. It lacked seasoning. Our birthday girl did receive a beautiful slice of Tiramisu, which was shared by all and that was delicious.

Rosa's is gone. And so is the service and quality of the experience. Waited over an hour for appetizers in the bar. Never approached by staff to explain the wait, or ask if we wanted another drink while waiting. Staff was more interested in chatting with the bartender than bringing us our bill, as well.

I stopped in based on others reviews, but I was disappointed. As a single diner, I chose to sit in the bar for a more casual experience, but it may have negatively impacted my meal as the bartender wasn't very attentive. I ordered the Sicilian pasta which came with tomatoes, eggplant, onion and feta. I had to search for the... More

Our dinners were both excellent. My husband had the carbonara and I had clams in a white wine sauce over spaghetti. We shared a ceaser salad which was ample for both of us. The entire staff was attentive but not over bearing. I ordered a martini which was a bit too icey but the house chianti was excellent. Next time... More

This restaurant is truly exceptional on every level: service, food, ambiance, cleanliness, location, and parking. I believe it should be ranked #1 in Ontario, and certainly well ahead of many other TA reviewed places in the top twenty (Krispy Kream?! Gimme a break). I'm a frequent traveler here and usually stay at the hotel right behind this location, so this... More

I was a bit saddened to learn of the change of hands and skeptical when I also learned it was headed by a new chef, but I was pleasantly surprised and very happy at the same time by the food in all aspects, taste, quality, freshness and presentation. We had the pleasure of being so well treated and served by... More

A very nice place for a work team to celebrate with a nice dinner. FOOD: very nice selection of Italian alternatives. SERVICE: We attended with a small group of six adults. Wait staff worked with us and was very attentive. They knew their menu and alternatives. VALUE: A bit high for a TDY business outing; but, worth the one night... More
