“Tuesday night is Chippano night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

Sounds crazy but we try to travel to Pismo especially for Rosa's chippino on Tuesday night. To die for and I have had chippino in many countries and this is among the best I have had in years. Just notice how many "locals" eat at Rosa's...Is your mouth watering yet?

“Food is A+ : Staff is B+”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

In all, this place rates an *Excellent* but the hostess station can be a bit spotty (and unattentive/unfriendly) at times. But the food and waitstaff more than make up for it. The best veal piccata we've ever had, with both capers and caper berries, and an unbelievably rich and satisfying sauce, really wonderful stuff, and at around $17, pretty affordable for good veal served in tender slices. Their whole mini-loaf table bread is dense and crusty and light all at the same time. Don't leave Pismo without trying it. Dinner service during prime time is busy busy busy, so plan accordingly...

“Great Italian Dinner with Wonderful Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

In driving my daughter back to Cal Poly, we stayed once again at Pismo. At the recommendation of the hotel's front desk, they suggested Rosa's. It was wonderful! Food (I had calamari appetizer and salad, my daughter the Fettucini Chicken Alfredo). Their wine was wonderful and the service perfect. Even on New Year's Day, there was a packed house, but we got in within 5 minutes. Atmosphere with white table cloths was lovely. Dinner was $40, so good price too! Will defintely be back to Rosa's.

“Classic Italian..!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

My wife and I recently visted Los Angeles. We are from Australia. We rented a car and drove to Pismo Beach specifically to spend the night in a most beautiful California mid-coast town and to go to Rasa's. The lasagna is spectacular. Always a great night. Rosa's hold very special memories for me. I'll definitely be back.
