Beautiful renovation without losing any of the Rossi's atmosphere! Steaks and Pizza excellent! Super relaxed for a well-priced meal

Food was ok, nothing fancy and nothing authentic Italian - if you are looking for a Italian place to have a simple Italian wood burning pizza - then Rossi is good enough. Our pizza was terribly thin and way too much flour was used as the base was white and powdery. Service was shocking but it eventually did come ( could be because that it was very busy for there lunch hour)

First time visit and what a great little restaurant. In town not on seafront but this recently re-vamped spot is just great. Log fire on those cold nights, very varied menu but the pasta dishes are really great as is the line fish. Booking taken efficiently, waitron great and super evening.

We recently went to Rossis to celebrate a friends birthday. We asked to be seated outside as some of us are smokers but upon arrival we were shocked to see that they had split our table in two. Many of the tables near us were not even used that night so I can't understand why they would try this. We weren't even a large group (12 people). After asking for assistance we eventually managed to squash ourselves into one row - so that we didn't take up too much of their precious space. The food was below average. Two of the pizzas that arrived were semi-raw, and the steaks were chewy and flavorless. One of the other waiters, a rather unkempt man who delivered one of the dishes, was asked for a simple jug of water - but instead of even listening to the request, he brushed us off with a grunt and just said: "Ask your waiter."

To add to this unpleasant experience, they began packing everything up at precisely 11 PM. Dragging tables across the floor and banging chairs. They could NOT have made it more obvious that we were being chased out. I feel that this is completely unacceptable. I almost felt the need to apologize to the wait staff for keeping them up. We will most certainly NOT be bothering the Rossis staff again.

The only thing that kept me from rating this restaurant as 'Terrible' was the fact that our waiter, Dave, was perfect. He was kind and efficient and pretty much the only good thing about our visit.
