We visited Rossini restaurant on 14th June 2022. We were in total 4 persons, all speaking english, despite living in Riga. Our waiter (as per the receipt was Martins P) The food was OK (pizzas are so-so). Then came the bill, fully written in Latvian...language. Upon going home, i translated one line which looked suspicious : "Apkalposana 9% as it didnt match any item we ordered. I discovered that they charged us a service fee of 9% whereas as per the menu, this is applicable only starting from 6 people. We later called the restaurant to complain : - they were NOT polite on the phone - they didnt aplogize - their excuse is that "the button is very close to another item on the screen" I went back to the restaurant and the manager was absent. I asked another waiter to show me how their system works : they use Airkeep_r : the button to add the tax is totally separated from the "food menu", meaning you need to consciously go there and add it to the bill. Not only did they cheat, the manager lied to us to cover the fraudulent act of the employee ! overall, very bad experience, be careful and check your receipt carefully !More

I ordered a carbonara and it was a kid’s portion. The restaurant was supposed to be open till 23h. We ordered espresso at 22h15 and they told us that the machine was cleaned now.. There were 3 tables who were not finished with the meal…

The restaurant was supposed to be open till 11 pm and we arrived at 9 pm. The waiter looked annoyed at his watch as soon as we entered but he gave us a table anyway. The food was ok (nothing exceptional) but the best part...was when we asked for 2 espressos at 22:15 pm and the waiter said that it was not possible as they were already cleaning the espresso machine.More

Nice looking restaurant and seemed to be busy. There were 3 issues I faced: 1. The main course of spaghetti and chicken - the portion was a joke - very small and I'm really sorry to say there was absolutely no seasoning added as the...food was completely bland and tasteless 2. They only had one beer on tap and no beers in bottles - come on! I won't name the brand but it was poor and too many places have contracts with this mainstream, poor tasting beer company. Get some better beers and look after your customers! 3. The bread and the bread sticks we had for starters were also sadly tasteless. The bread sticks were too soft and doughy. The only plus's were the waiter seemed smiley and friendly and the Tiramisu was good and had lots of fresh cream inside. I will not be going back here sadly.More

The place looks good, my client who had invited me said it's Riga's best place, and he was once thinking of a career as a chef; Well-dressed, very accommodating waiter made the first impression, he could answer specific questions, knew the food and could suggest...and showed flexibility. The food came, looked excellent and met with GREAT Tastiness! We also sat outside..and got our business done and my hunger..left..More

We visited this restaurant on December 30th. Everything was great, but some points to mention: The bread offered was necessary, we did not even finish it although it was expensive. The food was great and service nice and polite. The chocolate foundant was amazing, definitely...recommend. However, it was quite expensive, but we will come back.More

Cosy atmosphere and interior. We were 4 persons and all dishes were very good, service was simple and polite. All of us were quite satisfied. Chocolate fondant was amazing. Overall very good, but some sparkle was missing for 5 points. Will come again.

We was visitig this place by recomendations by our friends, but i think our friends were more lucky than we. In short - Risotto was disgusting, without taste and consistency. Risotto must be creamy and tasty not watery and flat. Chocolate fondant was moist, but...cold inside. I think restaurant has lost its former glow...More

I have visited this place a lot of times, but yesterday was the last one. Frozen pizza from shop is a better choice. They brought us 2 pizzas which were cold, after we asked ,they took the pizza to warm up, but it didn’t help...to improve the taste. This restaurant used to have good pizza, but now it was disappointment! I told to the waiter what I think about this kind of pizza, but there were no reaction.More

Went to this restaurant after seeing it on “Tripadvisor” and I don’t regret! Good and attentive service as mentioned in previous reviews. I’ve also been offered some aperitifs at start. The food was tasty, although not what I imagined pizza would look like. It is...not the cheapest restaurant, but the portions are quite large. The restaurant has an amazing atmosphere, very cozy and relaxed,beautifully decorated! And well, I’ve got some Limoncello liqueur in the end, such a nice complimentary gesture!! 😊😉More
