“Quality family Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

I was in town for an overnight stay before going to Sequoia NP and was in the mood for a good Italian meal and Rosa's hit the mark. The service was friendly and the food was delicious. I had the bruschetta to start which was on 4 big pieces of bread and chicken cacciatore. My grandfather ordered the antipasti which overflowed the plate and the eggplant parm. We shared a bottle of wine and had an enjoyable traditional Italian dinner over an hour and a half... And the bread was super soft out of the oven!

“Family friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

A great restaurant for family gatherings! We were in search of a place for about 20 people to meet for dinner on the spur of the moment. We called and they said it would be no problem to take our group on short notice. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and shown to a private area with a large group table. The service was great and the food top quality. There was no problem with a rather loud group even though not everyone arrived at the same time. We all enjoyed our meal and the friendly service. Would definitely go here again.

“A really good meal and a marvellous family atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Really nice meal - delicious good sized portions, good friendly service and a restaurant full of local people (always a good sign). As tourists just passing through we found it on Trip Advisor and it was so pleasant and relaxing and excellent value.

“Great Lasagna”

Our family goes to Rosas all the time. My husband and I order the lasagna every time. It's fantastic! The staff is always attentive and the owner is friendly and always makes us feel welcome.

“Closest to the real deal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

I do understand why some people would not like it here, they are use to the fake Italian foods around here, people complaining about the sauce, etc. I have been here and the one that used to be in Tulare and both always make great food, from the pasta to their desserts. If you are in town and looking for Italian, well, the closest that you can get will be here, if you are looking for American / Italian then go to the typical Olive grass! I only review food and service, and on both I was very happy! Great food!
