Not one Italian person served us, but the service from the young ladies was very good, and the food very tasty. Just didn't have the Italian "Feel" about it.... But I would still recommend it.

The food was really delicious and not like the standard chain menu's that seem to be springing up all over the place. The Service was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming

We've visited Rossinis frequently over the years. It's become a regular evening out when on holiday in Weymouth, which speaks for itself - we are always delighted with our experience there.

The main menu comprises a variety of Mediterranean dishes, with some very tasty pastas in particular. A good range of starters too, and we especially recommend the selection of olives with bread! There's ample provision for vegetarians/pescatarians/coeliacs, with modifications available for many items (gluten free options etc.) The wine list is also worth a look and the house wines are pretty good, complementing the food well.

We've generally found the service to be friendly and welcoming, and spacing between courses is well timed. You won't have to wait too long, but neither do they bring the mains when you're just finishing off the starter. You don't feel rushed, even when there on a busy night, which is to its credit.

The restaurant itself is relatively small and easy to miss at the corner of a little side street, (which also, of course, means that there's no sea view). Inside, however, the atmosphere is truly one of relaxed cosiness. Warm and welcoming, and pretty décor with a considered Mediterranean flavour. It does fill up quickly though, especially on Friday/Saturday nights or during a special offer evening, so we'd always recommend booking in advance.

Querky restaurant with a cosy ambience. The menu was very varied and superb specials of the day options. The food was exceptional and very good value for money.

At some restaurants we always end up ordering the same couple of items from the menu: we like Rossinis because it has a good mix of Mediterranian food, there's always at least three or four items we can choose from, plus daily specials. Cosy atmosphere, Peroni beer on tap, and good range of reasonably priced wines, friendly service (althogh the co-owner could do with an injection of humour at times).
