they seem to know repeat visitors and friendly to seasonal traffic, too. Excellent food, knowledgeable staff, busy but prompt service. I would love to go here again.

Arriving in Pismo Beach in the early afternoon, it was less than a half hour before lunch closing when we entered. Having eaten not only at this Rosa’s but also at the flagship location in Visalia, CA., we have come to expect nothing less than the best in both quality of service and food. We weren’t disappointed this time, either,... More

So nice, very varied menu, huge portions well prepared. Quite traditional 'ranch style' interior. Waitress was very good and so pleasant. Would visit again.

On a day trip to Pismo Beach we were lucky to pick Rasa's for lunch. We ordered a Veal dish and Canneloni dish. The flavor and preparation of both were spot on. Atmosphere was typical Italian and the outdoor dinning area where we were seated was very pleasant. The prices and portions were reasonable for the quaity of food and... More

Spaghetti boulanese is a favorite of mine. I have eaten all over Europe and find Rosa's beat only once in Brugge, Belgium. Try it in Pismo Beach. Great dining experience.

We went here based on a friend's recommendation... The decor is very nice & more upscale than the neighboring restaurants. I am not a fan of restaurants that don't include a salad, soup or even some vegetables with a full priced, not inexpensive, meal/entree. To add a side salad to any meal/entree was 6 or 7 dollars... My husband had... More

The restaurant has a rich history & has been in business a long time. The service & the food are superb. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food, and the servers are... More

The "house salad" is both large, with lots of little pieces after the "normal green stuff" (tomatoes, olives, pepper, and salami), I love the eggplant parmagioni - along with bread and big glasses of water. wine and beer are available (for a price), and finally desert If you haven't already satisfied your appetite (which I do). My multiple visits continue... More
