Good food.

Good food + wine. Bar looked nice. Didn't have time to sit down at the bar. This was recommended by a local and was worth it.

Good food Italiano...but crowded, dark, slow wait staff and limited many. I suppose it's okay if you don't go there too hungry and want to linger....but by then other patrons are staring you down to hurry up and eat. Parking is tough...but I suppose the walk is good for you. Wine is abundant...but you could get drunk just waiting for... More

Small friendly restaurant easily accessed and good parking. Good choice of menu but portions very large. Friendly staff and good value for money.

We ordered different entrees to eat and one appetizer - mussels with tomato sauce. The waiter brought the bread and the mussels. I would be perfectly happy with the sauce from the mussels. I would buy this sauce if they would sell it in a huge jar! Food was good, staff was nice and bathrooms are clean. Nice place to... More

Great pizza and salad. Perfect after a long day at the beach and you just want to stay in. Delivery was perfect, although the delivery person almost forgot to give us our salad and bread. (Be sure to check your order) They offer free bread and butter with the meal, which was a nice surprise.

We were traveling through late at night and stopped in right before closing. The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome even though I'm sure they were ready to go home. I had ravioli which was yummy. Kids pizza was great. The couple nearby kept raving about the Alfredo sauce which made me wish I had ordered it.... More

Rosa's is a nice place right off the semi main drag, although the place is a bit small, which equates to long waits sometimes, and the bar area is externally small for waiting. The food is very good, and the staff was friendly, although sometimes the wait between courses can be a little delayed. Best to get there earlier rather... More

Wow. I'd like to leave it at that, but Trip Advisor I'm sure would want more. Dropped in for dinner Friday night around 6:30. Very busy but there was no wait for two. Great seat by the window. The aroma of home cooking is immediately noticeable. Friendly waitstaff brought out a loaf of hot bread that was delicious with the... More
