We have gone to pismo for years but had never tried Rosas, we were missing some great food! I had a pasta dish and he had the lamb, both were wonderful! The only slight ding I would give is that I noticed that our server did not tell us all the specials. I know this because I overheard a different... More

Loved the pesto chicken pizza on gluten-free crust. We ordered it first thing in the morning, though, so it wasn't ready on time as promised--maybe they didn't put it in the oven till we got there. However, the pizza tasted great. It was a little pricey, but we were on vacation and didn't mind since the other pizza place we... More

We enjoyed our meal very much, and it seems to be popular with the locals as well, but Pismo has slim pickings for GOOD food.

Wife and I had dinner here a few days ago. We were on our way to a movie and the wait staff took care to make sure we got our salads and main course quickly enough as not to be rushed for the film. They were very nice and accommodating. Try the clam chowder, it was a hit with us,... More

First I want to compliment Rosa's for their handling of our ever changing reservations. What started out as a few turned into 17 at one point and ended up with 12. Everything was handled with a smile and we could not have been happier. The food is great here and the portions are ample. We ordered a variety of items... More

Some of the dishes are very good though I was not impressed on several occasions (pizza was deplorable for being served in an Italian restaurant) I have eaten here numerous times because my Mom likes it so much so have had both good and bad meals - but mostly good. The food is pretty heavy so be prepared to lay... More

Every time I've been to Rosa's it's been a bit of a wait for a table. Don't let that put you off. It's worth the wait! Great service, excellent food, relaxing atmosphere. Had the pesto pasta and it was excellent! Stop off in the bar before for a quick cocktail. It's worth it!

This is a comfortable, nicely decorated old style Italian restaurant. The menu is traditional and straightfoward with creative dishes that are a joy to eat. They don't take reservations and the place is very popular with tourists and locals so there was a 30 minute wait They serve fresh seafood along with traditional dishes. There were three specials, including an... More
