A great restaurant for family gatherings! We were in search of a place for about 20 people to meet for dinner on the spur of the moment. We called and they said it would be no problem to take our group on short notice. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and shown to a private area with a large... More

Really nice meal - delicious good sized portions, good friendly service and a restaurant full of local people (always a good sign). As tourists just passing through we found it on Trip Advisor and it was so pleasant and relaxing and excellent value.

Our family goes to Rosas all the time. My husband and I order the lasagna every time. It's fantastic! The staff is always attentive and the owner is friendly and always makes us feel welcome.

I do understand why some people would not like it here, they are use to the fake Italian foods around here, people complaining about the sauce, etc. I have been here and the one that used to be in Tulare and both always make great food, from the pasta to their desserts. If you are in town and looking for... More

We went there for lunch I had the Italiano Ensalada And my husband had the pesto with fettuccine. We both enjoyed our lunch immensely. The service was wonderful. The atmosphere was very authentic although a little dark for lunch. High-quality food at a bargain

I can honestly say there are only two great Italian restaurants in Visalia and this is one of them. The other is Little Italy. I love the Chicken Marsala here and the pizza. I'd really like to see them update the place though. Get rid of the tv up front, looks unprofessional to see employees watching the tube when you... More

Having eaten in a number of restaurants for dinner in Visalia, I think that I can safely say that Rosa's has been the best Italian-style restaurant in the area. The food is Southern Italian, with all the traditional dishes served, and the sauces are also Southern Italian in style. Unlike a previous review, i did not find the sauces I... More

Red sauce is fresh out of a can, thick and acidy if there is such a word. Food does not have the Italian flare or flavor of any good Italian food I have had elsewhere. I have tried different dishes , only to experience more of the same,even when I asked for Rose sauce, it was still too thick ,... More

We took our son and our granddaughter here for dinner. Our server was a little slow at the beginning of our meal but made up for it throughout the evening. I liked my tortellini and asked for a side of meatballs and found them to be just average and didn't finish them. The side of sausage that my husband ordered... More

This is a delightful, relaxing, delicious way to spend time in Visalia, California! Walk into Rosa's and you are part of their extended family. The service is friendly, you are never rushed from the table, and satisfied guests surround you. Food here is consistently delicious - prepared with fresh ingredients, using recipes passed down through generations of their Italian family.... More
