“Very over-rated, bad service and over priced food”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

I have been to Rosalie's several times and each visit get progressively worse. The last time we were there we were seated near the kitchen and there were flies buzzing around our table. Service was slow and I felt we w ere ignored. While the desserts (esp banana pudding) are good-- the main dishes lack flavor and seem to rely on butter for taste. When we wrote a letter to the manager (with diplomatic, honest, and we had hopes, helpful feedback) we have not yet, to this day, gotten a response. I would try some of the great restaurants in the Finger Lakes or Elderberry Pond.

“Food good ..... Service needs work.”
Reviewed October 10, 2011

We were 7 diners on a Sun. evening. Regular bartender was not there, and the gentleman who was acted like he was doing us a favor by serving us. Hostess seemed rattled by the busyness and somewhat inefficient. Table servers, Kevin and assistant, were WONDERFUL and obviously there to please. I've been there in the past and still would return. Food is very good.

“Best all around restaurant in area”
Reviewed October 6, 2011

Rosalie s is by far my favorite restaurant. While there are alot of fine upscale restaurants in the fingerlakes area, this is the best. The food, drinks, atmosphere, and service is excellent. Great selection. Just like walking into a Tuscan villa!!! The singing host is a nice touch. Look for Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea's signatures on the wall!!!

“The BEST authentic Italian food”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

Went for 5th wedding anny, sat at bar.. Had shrimp app which was really good. I had the veal piccata which was excellent. Wife had the rigatoni della cucina.. THE BEST EVER!!!! Literally just "like grandma" used to make.. Not the sauce out of a can/jar, but tomatoes, meats, spices that had been cooking all day. Couldn't get enough, had the leftovers for breakfast next day. Well worth it, will definitely go back next time for same thing. Miss it already..

“When will I see you again?”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

Excellent food. Couldn't stop eating although it was much too much. Real Italian food. Service could have been better, more attentive and not mixing up dishes all the time.
