A trip to Italy

They have many different menu choices and everything we have had is very good. The marinara sauce is wonderful and the pasta choices allow you to... read more

I used to live in Visalia and go to this restaurant fairly often. The same family owns it. I recently visited and took my family. Honestly, it is some of the best Italian food you'll ever eat! Everyone of us commented about the incredible flavor, the staff was very helpful and the decor clean and fresh.

After 10+ years of getting takeout or eating in, the food is still the best around for miles. Great portion size, the sauce has tons of flavor, and very reasonable prices. I'll be back many more times.

We went there last night for a birthday celebration and it was very good. The food and service did not disappoint. We would recommend the Lasagna and Cannelloni along with the Penne Ala Rosa and Cappellini with tomato & basil. You definitely won't leave hungry.

Pretty typical Italian food, nothing to write home about. We stopped by on our drive to Sequoia National Park. Next time we'll try someplace different. Nothing really stood out here as being particular good or bad.

Decent food and big portions! Stopped by with some colleagues during a business trip. The atmosphere is kinda weird, seems like they want to be fancy, but also have a dark bar area... I tried the Italian salad which came with slices of cheese, salami, lettuce, tomatoes... very good and fresh. For entree, i got a baked penne with meat... More

Ordinary pizza but a cute environment. The dessert was ok (limoncello tiramisu). The service was very good... A solid 4 star review - nothing out of this world and certainly not terrible!

I treated my daughter to lunch here and was appalled at the filthiest of this establishment. The walls had drips of sauce and even food particles that may date back to the Nixon era. The food was horrendous...clumpy rose sauce, pasta clearly not homemade and the entire dish microwaved. I should have left when we sat at our dirty booth,... More

Friends recommended Rosa's to us, & after a day spent at Sequoia National Park, we were happy to enjoy a good Italian meal with my parents who are visiting from Ohio. It was delicious. We all enjoyed our food. We got very good service from our waitress. We had no complaints.
