Rosa the owner of this Italian Restaurant is quite a character and runs her establishment her way and brooks no interference. She is very friendly but you wait to be seated and if all 40plus seats are taken you stand with the rest of the faithful on the sidewalk outside. The food and atmosphere is so enjoyable that people are... More

Simple Italian dishes. Small place and does not accept reservation. Go early if you don't want to lineup.

I've been to Rosa's before, and the food is really good. HOWEVER the Service is terrible. I was trying to coordinate a small birthday gathering for my boyfriend and what should be a joyful event turned horrible as i was told we wouldn't be seated together, couldn't order at the same time and were told pretty much "Not to come"....

But be prepared to wait, as this Gem does not take reservations. The lineup is worth the wait though. The food is always great. Classic italian fares, great appies and a wine list for all budgets. Big portions too!!! The service is consistently friendly, and pls take the time to chat with the owner, she is hilarious! The reviews I... More

No reservations. But worth the wait. This is the next generation of Nicks (commercial drive). You gotta experience it. It's run by a brother and sister - chat with them and enjoy their stories! Food is great. Nothing over the top fancy...just good old Italian. Be sure to order the cheesecake for dessert! OMG - fabulous! Daily specials are a... More

There was a line for a table but we were seated rather quickly. The restaurant is small, dark and the seating is crowded. There seemed to be a lack of waiters and our waiter was doing everything he could to keep up. We could have easily shared an entree as they were enormous. Surprisingly our dishes were bland and parmesan... More

I honestly don't know why people line up for this place. Maybe they see other people lining up for their dinner and assume it must be worth the wait!! The food is good, but not outstanding. Nothing special about the ambience either. I would only go there if someone else was paying, because the menu items are overpriced for what... More

Been wanting to eat here for a long time, and talked some friends into going today. No lineups, but waited way too long for our food, one of the dishes we ordered took longer, we were told after already waiting 45 min. We should have been informed when we ordered. The dishes we ordered were just ok, but overpriced. Also,... More
