“As comfortable as home but with really, really, REALLY good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

Rosalies' is an amazing place. Rosalie was the sister of restauranteur Phil Romano who helped her design the restaurant. It is Italian food perfected-the way it should be done familiar but different enough to not be boring. If you have been to the Macaroni Grill, there are things on this menu that will strike you as familiar (Romano family recipes). But then there is so much more. The seafood is unbeatable, especially the scallops.
The surroundings immediately put you at ease. The dinning room has one of the largest fireplaces you'll see taking up most of one wall of the room. The wait staff works in pairs and no need is over looked.
Also, the chef's are up to any challenge you can throw at them. Remember an italian dish but can't think of the name? Tell 'em what's in it and they'll make you something delicious. Or, do what my 8 year old did; Order scallops and pizza. No problem.
Whatever you do, though, order the chocolate cake! (they call it a torte) Very good. Reservations taken for 6 or more

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2011

I went to Rosalie's for the first time on Saturday night, it was my husbands birthday, the food was excellent and the service the same. They brought my husband a large piece of cake, and an Italian singer sang to the table. The atmosphere was great, it is on the expensive side, but the portions were large, and it was very worth it. I would recommend anybody go there. It will not be my last time

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2011

We visited Rosalie's on a recommendation from a relative whose Christmas party is held here annually. We were happy we listened and were not disappointed in our meal. The manicotti are incredible and my dish of thick pasta with a variety of seafood did not disappoint. The loaf of bread the waiters brought was incredible also! You can't go wrong here!!

“Don't do it!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2011

Overpriced food and horrible service. Almost forgot about the male hostess that thought he was somebody. Terrible experience in a town full of great food and even better people. Get over yourselves!

“Good choice for quality food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2010

I am new to the area but have been trying all of the restaurants-so far this is the family favorite. Rosalies has been packed for two weekends in a row-not a bad feat considering it is November. Service has been outstanding. Food has been excellent. I can't stand going to restaurant and waiting for someone to come to our table to offer drinks-on both occasions we were asked within 2 minutes.
