For nice Italian and a relaxing atmosphere we found Rossa's to be both. We were looking for a good meal as well as a place where we could hear each other (not the loud, crowded resaurants). The service was great as well as the meal--

This is our first time since the new owner took over I have always enjoy the ambience of this restaurant. Five of us order the linguine and scallops and one order Osa Buco. The meals were great. Service was on point keep up... More

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
