Reviewed August 15, 2011

(Casa Rosa - now La Rossa) Fantastic, quality food at very reasonable prices! With friendly, professional, attentive staff across the board (including the chef's). As well as this, the building iteslf is one of the most beautiful restaurants i have encountered, with high, ornate ceilings and South Shields inspired artwork - very pretty. (Great to see Essey back where he belongs, thank you for restoring high standards!)

“ESSY IS BACK!!!”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

There are many restaurants to choose from in South Shields, however if you are after excellent food and superb service in beautiful surroundings then you can't get better than La Rosa. The manager Essy really knows how to make you feel special, and the chef Yorn turns out some of the best food I have tasted, the sous chef Ozzy makes a lovely red oinion marmalade. Prices are great too - Happy Hour 2 courses for £4.95, and the rest of the menu is very reasonably priced. They also do Sunday Lunch and are open 12-9pm on Sunday serving the full menu. My husband and I have been big fans of Essy for a few years now and it is great to see him back in South Shields.
Last night's meal was excellent - Fresh sun dried tomato bread whilst we looked at the menu, creamy garlic mushrooms & salmon fishcake to start and we both had Salmon Pasta as a main, delicious...........!!!!!!!

“Birthday treat”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

I booked Casa Rosa South Shields to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday.
It had just re-opened after re-furbishment and changed its name to La Rosa. The food was excellent and very well priced - £4.95 for any pasta or piza. The service was excellent although there was only two other tables taken. For 10 of us it cost £198 for food and drink. - That included three bottles of wine as well as many pints for the men in the party. I had called earlier in the day and Essie had decoratedthe table, then brought out the cake just at the appropriate time.
Well done Essie. Superb meal and superb service.
Only downside was that it lacked atmosphere as there was hardly anyone in the resteraunt. Hopefully this will improve once word gets out about the exceptional value for money and excellent food.
