“Cozy Family Italian Eatery”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We dined here on the night before our cruise. Rosinella is located a block from the busier nightlife scene at Mary Brickell Village. The exterior is unassuming and easily missed, but the interior is cozy and inviting. My lasagna was delicious and my wife loved the lobster and crab ravioli in pink sauce. Portions were generous for the price. The best compliment I could pay is when our boys said they wished we had a Rosinella by our home.

“Cosy, Italian.”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Beside Mary Brickell Village restaurant area. You would almost miss it as the frontage is very small and the peeling paint appearance at first does not appeal but it is maybe intentional. A cosy spot not really for a formal evening out to impress your date but a casual intimate place to relax and enjoy good Italian food. The pizzas looked great although I had the raviolis stuffed with mushroom and goat cheese-very good. Tirimisu was kind of standard and service was friendly and attentive. Prices were good for the location.

“Italian Food”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Rosinella is an Italian restaurant located in South Miami Avenue very close to Brickell Avenue.

The pasta is a, I love the raviolis stuffed with spinach and goat cheese, the pizzas are excellent and prices very well for the food.

They have a very good selection of wines, by the glass or by bottle. I also love the dessert specially the pannacota, it is homemade, not sweet and it melts in your mouth, it is like a soufflé.

In addition to the above they have Free Parking that it is not usual for that area,

Excellent place to go with your family of friends.
Highly recommended.

“My Wife's favorite restaurant of our trip”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Again close to hotel and monorail, this was a great local Italian restaurant in downtown Miami. We had seen this place the day before when we ate lunch next door at El Vato. Everyone outside had great looking food. As for our visit, the restaurant was dated by its modern neighbors and much on the street but it had a very authentic Italian restaurant feel. We met friends and several in our party including my wife had the salmon special on which all raved. I had pasta and salad and they were very good. The wine was good as well as the service. In addition, we saw a few pro tennis players there for the Sony which our friends were attending. That was simply the topping to a great dinner experience. All of us and especially my wife highly recommend.

“A good Italian choice”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Very good Italian Food with fair portions and nice selection of plates to choose from.
Dining room is small so it could be a little noisy at times. But nothing really bad.
In general a very option for a nice luch or dinner
