Had a meal on a Saturday evening, restaurant was busy but not packed, two waitresses working who easily coped with all diners. Foot was of a good standard and was hot. Nice atmosphere in the place. Seemed to be used by families, couples and friends

We all had starters and a main (some choosing off the specials menu and others off the main menu) and the... More

Our B & B hosts recommended La Rosetta and made the booking for us which they said would be advisable. Such a welcoming atmosphere, excellent food served quickly by friendly staff.

We have been using La Rosetta for years and have eaten there on many occasions. We have always had excellent meals with good service. The pizza's and penne picante are my favourite meals but my wife enjoys the fish and risotto. it is popular so make sure you book a table!
