“Health Hazard”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

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, with food crumbs underneath and wow...look up at the AC and register vents to see what must be years of accumulation, falling into the tables onto the guests and their food.

I will never eat here again, and consider it a miracle I lived through it without any illness.

“Just what we wanted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

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.

“Quality family Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I was in town for an overnight stay before going to Sequoia NP and was in the mood for a good Italian meal and Rosa's hit the mark. The service was friendly and the food was delicious. I had the bruschetta to start which was on 4 big pieces of bread and chicken cacciatore. My grandfather ordered the antipasti which overflowed the plate and the eggplant parm. We shared a bottle of wine and had an enjoyable traditional Italian dinner over an hour and a half... And the bread was super soft out of the oven!

“Family friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

A great restaurant for family gatherings! We were in search of a place for about 20 people to meet for dinner on the spur of the moment. We called and they said it would be no problem to take our group on short notice. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and shown to a private area with a large group table. The service was great and the food top quality. There was no problem with a rather loud group even though not everyone arrived at the same time. We all enjoyed our meal and the friendly service. Would definitely go here again.
