Visited here on a Saturday evening with high hopes of a traditional Italian meal in a wonderful setting. Staff were very welcoming - but the room was so cold we actually held on to our coats for the entire evening! The starters were lovely and the service, although a little slow, was very professional. The main courses, however arrived on... More

Returned to Rossini's for my Husband's 60th birthday lunch, with our boys and partners and grandchildren. A lovely warm welcome, fantastic table overlooking the river, brilliant service and wonderful Italian food. The children were made to feel welcome and special, as was the "Birthday Boy", who was treated to free cake and a rendition of "happy birthday". Frito Miso was... More

Went to Goring today to pay respects to George Michael. Found out that this place was one of several local eating places that George frequented, so treated my wife to a meal here before placing flowers at George's house. Lovely setting on the bank of the Thames. Food and service were off the scale. Try the House special Vegetable Lusagne... More

My husband and I thought we'd treat ourselves to lunch here as we are staying in to see the new year in. As ever the food was sublime! We love family run Italian restaurants. If only they had lasagne on their regular menu but the Fritto Misto and the Liver cooked in sage and butter was delicious! Already looking forward... More

Read numerous good reviews, so we went a few months back. Great setting on the Thames granted (building and outside area bit dog-eared round the edges though), but the food was very average and of a heavy disposition - overcooked pasta, uninspired and bland sauces, chalky dry lobster etc. Quality (to be fair) that seems to be the norm in...

Visited in November 2016 - last visit Dec 2015. Food was as good as expected - very good. Service was friendly and welcoming. Mein host is a ball of fun and works very hard to ensure your experience is good. Will definitely be visiting again

This is one of the best Italian restaurants at which I have eaten outside Italy. The portion sizes are very generous as the manager warns you prior to ordering. The Ladies in our party were satisfied with "starter" portions for their main course. I have never managed a desert at Rossini, but they sound and look delicious. The location is... More

Moored our Narrowboat outside restaurant. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and seated with a view of the river. With the chefs compliments we had the most delicious soup prior to our ordered starters and main courses. We were too full to try the desserts. The service was friendly and quietly attentive. We decided it was the best... More

This has to be one of the most beautifully located restaurants in the country. The view ahead to the river from our table was spectacular. The view to the right, less so : a wicker fence against which the chef and other kitchen staff lent for the numerous cigarette breaks, or swan-feeding sessions, they took during our meal. The maître... More

Love the location and of course the Italian cuisine. Food is amazing ..really worth a visit or twenty. Service very attentive. By the river so the area is very tranquil. Just great for a romantic meal.
