Rosa's is a bit of a crapshoot in terms of service. Food is always consistently good. BBQ ribs & pasta is a good combo. Can't help but think the BBQ ribs are Costco "Roadhouse Ribs" (which are very tasty - but far from an in-house BBQ restaurant standard). Caprese salad is good. You will almost always wait for a table... More

Yes we had to wait about 20 minutes to get in but let me tell you it was worth the wait! We first started off with the special which was mussels. The sauce that the mussels were bathed in, was absolutely amazing!! We dipped our bread and cleaned the whole plate. I had the linguine and clam sauce (heaven) with... More

I know many people raive about this place. We went for a family dinner as my brother loves Rosa's. I have to be honest I don't see what the fuss is all about. They don't take reservations so if there are more than 4 of you then you have to go really early. The food wasn't that good and some... More

This was my first of I hope many to this "hole-in-the-wall". We tried to get in before but they seem to be on a first come first serve / no reservations policy. Get there early. OK now.... it is crowded. It could be noisy. It is NOT cheap. The food is NOT fast so this is why you need someone... More

This is a great restaurant that is owned and operated by the family. They are lovely people and very friendly. The service was great and it appears that everyone loves them. The food is good as was the wine. It is a very small restaurant so I would suggest reservations.

We got there early to avoid line-ups outside, even though it's well worth the wait. Often places where people line up outside raise questions, such as is the reputation deserved or people just line up. If people line up for Rosa's it totally understandable, because the food, the ambiance and the service are great! The food is piping hot and... More

Rosa's is a small place, with a big atmosphere. It has lots of pictures of celebrities on the wall who have eaten there, and they are fun to read. The food is typical Italian fare, and prepared very well. The portions are big, and most patrons leave with a doggy bag. The only potential downside is that they don't take... More

We went and waited outside for 45 minutes and in that time you imagine this hidden gem in the suburbs. Disappointingly, it was average Italian food in the suburbs. Not bad by any means just not great and I very much enjoy good Italian food so I am not being unfair.

My family and I like to to Rosa's for their mussels and lasagna at least twice per year, is disappointing when they offered BB ribs (not italian at all). Portions are plenty and good flavour, some times really good while some times just good. Service is super slow, sometimes nice and polite and others really rude and bad. Make this... More

This is by far the best Italian food I've ever tasted. Yes you may have to wait outside awhile, but is so worth the food and experience. The staff is always pleasant. On many occasions Rosa serves us herself. She is funny and very personable. Hope to get back soon.

Thank KSDean
