Small Italian restaurant

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

As a local Port Moody resident, I often see line ups outside Rosa's restaurant and falsely assumed this was a great place to eat. I recently went for my father's b'day dinner and was very disappointed in both the food and the service. Our server was polite but the meals took a long time to get to our table. While... More

Way to many positive things to say about this place. We ordered mussels as an appetizer and expected maybe 8-10. We received a giant dish of 20+. Best I've ever had. For dinner I got cannelloni. Beautiful! Restaurant is small, get there early. But so worth the wait. Our waitress was also amazing. A must go.

This is a very popular Italian restaurant that serves good sized portions of authentic Italian food. Get there early in order to get a seat. Otherwise, you may end up waiting outside until a table is available.

Exceptional Italian food. Reserve a spot if you can or stand outside a while till there's a place to sit..It was worth the wait.

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

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
