Frankly had low expectations when we searched for "best restaurant in Ontario," but this gem of a place truly surprised us. Cocktails were perfectly prepared. Started with the stuffed mushrooms and were immediately impressed with the quality of the ingredients and the delicacy of the cooking. Salads were quite good. I had the lamb shank and my wife had the... More

I was traveling with a group of 3 work colleagues arriving into town for early Monday meetings. We made reservations ahead of time based on a recommendation of a friend at work. We arrived on Sunday evening and they did not seem busy. We were seated promptly and had the entire front section to ourselves. The server was very knowledgeable... More

I had the risotto special with shrimp and it was delicious. The house wine was good and the service excellent. A nice crowd on a Tuesday night. Prices were reasonable although my special was more than I thought it should be.

We travel from San Diego to go this Italian restaurant. The food and service were spectacular. This was our 45th wedding anniversary and the food was great. I had the seafood pasta and my wife had the shrimp scampi with lemon sauce. The calamari was very good and in our top five which is a large complement. The service was... More

We ate well for the price. My colleague and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a nicer place that didn't quite fit our expense account ($30 which will quickly run you through dinner and a couple beers) but we decided to splurge.

Visiting Ontario, I ate here twice: once with students and colleagues on 4/4/16, and tonight alone on 4/8/16. This is a gem that resides in an typical Ontario corner strip mall, much better than the location promises. The uniformed staff and white table cloths fit perfectly with a well-designed layout. But be prepared: the portions are ample and give excellent... More

Checking into the nearby Residence Inn, I asked the woman checking me in for a restaurant recommendation. Without hesitation she asked if I liked Italian and recommended Rossa's. Walking in to lobby, an odd smell put me on guard - did I make a mistake? My companions and I were seated quickly and the odd odor in the lobby dissipated... More

Meeting an old friend for dinner is always fun...but best when you also consider the restaurant an "old friend!" Rossa's sets the bar for fine Italian cuisine in the Inland Empire. Imaginative pasta and finely prepared meals. Rossa's is not a place for giant portions, but the preparation is superb and the variety is terrific. Service is above average and... More

Visiting in Ontario for a sporting event and decided to try this restaurant and it was a good choice. The portions were kind of small but all were excellent and the service was good. Would recommend this restaurant if looking for good Italian dining experience
