“Delightful, Well Decorated Italian`”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I was taken here for lunch when on a business visit to Bakersfield.

Attentative personal service, and the food was lovely.
Natural flavours and seasoning - soft pasta - raviolli that is not over burdened with pasta so you don't taste the meat inside. Equally not over covering the food in sauce, makes for a nice italian taste sensation!

Pleasure to eat here.

“Sadly I know some people that keep suggesting we go here.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Terrible service. Loud even when fairly empty. Extremely over priced for the quality of the very bland food (and I don't like a lot of seasoning). It would of been overpriced even if I liked the food. But the absolute worst thing about the place was the tipping policy. I am traditional in that I still base tipping on service, and being optional. (Terrible service gets 0% going up to Perfect service gets 20%- up) I do think that the boss should be paying the wait staff a living wage. This place though automaticly added the tip onto the bill. They would not let me remove the tip or subtract from it. Only add to it. To make it worse this was after we had the waitress hassling us at the table wanting tips.

“The best Italian in bakersfield”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

Rosa's food is amazing! My husband loves the lobster raviolli and i can't believe how they can make spagetti and meatballs so great. The salads are nothing special, but they have a focacia with cheese and olive oil with basil and tomatoes that I crave. It is not always on the menu, but if you ask they will make it. Rosas is family owned and when you are there they treat you like family. Check out the specials because they are always amazing. Go early because they get busy.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

The pizza and minestrone soup are good, everything is is pretty average and over priced. If you want Italian food, there are much better ptions in town.
