“Find This Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

I'm an Italian-American from New York (originally) and have macaroni and Chicken Parmagiana every Sunday at my mother's so when I say the food here is very good you can believe me. Find it and you'll love it.

This place is a bit hard to find -- it's behind Cheri's Café and way down the end (past Le Moulin Fou).

“Romantic dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Italian food. Fresh and delicious. Family owned and in bussiness for years. I frequent it every year when I go the the island. You must make reservations. Located in Maho. You can walk there from the hotels.

“My new favorite Italian on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

La Rosa is a little hard to find in Maho. Up the hill behind the shops and casino there's a row of restaurants including Moulin Fou at one end and La Rosa at the other end.
I'm told this wonderful restaurant has been there for many years but unless someone lets you in on the secret, it's elusive as you can't see it from the main street.
Once inside you're treated to a very charming enclosed garden restaurant. Very attentive and capable staff and fantastic Italian food are the highlights. The osso bucu was the best I've ever had and that includes New York City and Brooklyn, fork tender and in a very tasty sauce.
Be sure to ask for the home made Italian sausage appetizer - it's not on the menu.

Once again, visited this restaurant as we always do on our vacation to SXM. Great food, great service, and a very nice atmosphere.
