Rosie's Italian has the best
Rosie's Italian has the best Bruschetta in the area. I highly recommend ordering it as an appetizer. The Manicotti is incredible but don't hesitate to try ANYTHING on their menu.

Rosie's is always at the top
Rosie's is always at the top of our list for a night out. The food and service are consistently excellent and the Barone family is committed to keeping them that way. Toledo has many fine restaurants and Rosie's is a leader among them.

Rosie is a great place to for lunch or dinner. The resturant was packed on Wednesday night and very noisy but the food is worth it.

Excellent/ wonderful local restaurant and well managed-however jiust one thing...,when I made the reservation on line, I indicated that this was our wedding anniversary dinner and thought that at least someone would have recognized that fact.

Food Was Great
The food was better than I expected - I expected good food but it was easily the best Chicken Marsala I've ever had. The service was friendly but the arrival of food was very slow.

We enjoyed a romantic dinner with excellent food. Perfect place to celebrate something special!

Great place for special occasion!
Rosie's is a great place for Italian food, wine, and quiet conversation. It is very low key even though we have been there on night's where a band is playing in the bar. The service is good and there are a variety of choices.

Whether you dine on the patio or in a cozy booth, the food is consistently fresh and delicious. And the kitchen is flexible. No iced coffee on the menu? They'll create one for you. Want your sandwich as a panini rather than a wrap? They can do it.

Great Date Night!
Dined here for a much-needed date night and was not disappointed. Online reservations were quick and easy, the meal was delicious (I had grilled chicken stromboli, my boyfriend had the manicotti) and the drinks were reasonably priced. Our waiter was fantastic - friendly, quick with drink refills, and eager to serve in any way he could. Highly recommend!

Great First Visit
Even though it was rainy, a little muggy and the hostess seated us OUTSIDE on the patio, the whole experience was better than expected. I found Rosie's on Urbanspoon as a suggestion, and glad we made the trip.
The atmosphere is cozy and not over-produced in terms of decor and the feel of the joint. Very romantic, very much like you're in your own little place.
The owner was there and wasn't sitting down. He was greeting folks, making sure things were getting done. That's a good sign right there.

Best Italian in the city!
Perfect place for fine dining. Couples, quaint atmosphere. Fresh seafood flown in daily.

Rosie's is a gem.
I have never had a bad experience and when we decide to visit Rosie's for dinner, I think about the food all day! It's great stuff and the wait staff are very friendly. Thanks for a great meal once again!

I took people from out-of-town into this establishment because we usually have a good experience here. Needless to say, they really enjoyed the restaurant to no avail - the food, ambience & service was excellent! They had even compared their experience to other places in the U.S. and rated Rosie's the best!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
One negative was there was a small child with a small group who made a lot of noise during dinner. I don't go to a place this nice to be annoyed by a toddler. Also our server was attentive but she interrupted us a lot and we were there to talk and visit. The food was excellent as usual and we enjoyed the evening

A great place to keep coming back
Really great food choices at reasonable cost. Attention to detail and a true concern, to make sure you are happy with your meal. The owner is on-site and checks to see if everything is going well. The music in the bar is always a bonus. Of course the food is outstanding and I can always count on a great meal. I go to Rosies more than any other restaurant and that is why!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Rosie's is perfection! Every dish is beyond delicious and presented beautifully. Wait staff is flawless. Timing is excellent, knowledgeable, and meets your needs immediately. Hard to think of another dining experience in Toledo that is as consistently enjoyable as Rosie's!
A romantic atmosphere to take a date or celebrate, great for groups and family gatherings too! Menu and wine list are filled with so many choices, there is sure to be something for everyone's liking. Noise level is low enough to have conversations.
We've dined here many times and will definitely return many more.

Entertaining Guests from Aruba
We chose to brings 5 guests visiting us from Aruba because of the great food & great service at Rosie's. Our evening was all we could hope for & we especially like to bring our out of town guests to local eateries. The food was terrific & the sevice excellent. We knew Rosie's was a hit when our friends wished there was a Rosie's at home. Thanks to all!!!

Dinner with friends. ..
We brought out of town friends to enjoy a lovely meal. The entire experience was very nice. We dined outside, service was very attentive and everyone was pleased. We will definitely return again.

Dinner at Rosie's
My daughters and I had a great experience at Rosie's Sunday night before going to see WIcked. The only thing I would comment on as an opportunity for improvement is that my chicken picatta had a bit too much butter on the plate. Other than that, everything was very good.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We are foodies & go to Rosie's a few times a year. The last 2 times, I ordered the exact same thing. Service was great. The wine my husband wanted was sold out. The Hot Mama Bread - PERFECT! My husband got pasta w/ meatballs & sausage & he absolutely loved it. My portion of chicken parmesan was small - I'm not expecting (& don't want) huge, by any means, but I got 2 pieces that were about 1/2 as thin as a deck of cards and about 2/3 the size of a deck of cards. It was, however, perfectly cooked. The breading was not too heavy and it was crisp and tasty. I also had the mushroom risotto - although tasty, it was WAY over peppered & sticky, as opposed to creamy. The time before, when I had this exact same meal, it was SPOT ON PERFECT!

Out of Towners loved it
We took some long time friends to Rosies and we had a great time. One couple was from Strongsville and the other couple was from Bowling Green. All 4 were quite impressed.

Rosie's is remarkable!!
We love Rosie's Italian Grille!! It is first class!! You cannot find more delicious, fresher food anywhere in Toledo. The menu has a large selection of pasta, meat, chicken and seafood. Seafood is flown in fresh daily from the keys! This restaurant is very vigilant with food allergies which unfortunately is an issue with us. Service is impeccable. It is a special experience to dine at Rosie's!!

Had a great time eating here for the first time. Food was great and eating outside was a definite plus. Their outside dining area is very neat.

I love Rosie's, the service
I love Rosie's, the service is always outstanding, the food excellent and an incredible wine list. We had the balsamic seared scallops (perfectly cooked) and the seafood jambalaya (which was incredible). Julie, our server, kept a good eye on our table without being overbearing. She was knowledgeable about the menu, described the daily specials clearly, and gave suggestions when asked.

Looking forward to going back!
Great night out with friends! The atmosphere was perfect, the food delicious, and the staff very attentive. My favorite food is pizza and their pizza is outstanding, however all the dishes looked amazing and I look forward to another visit and a chance to try the lasagna!

First dining experience at Rosie's
We used the online reservation and waited only about 15 minutes. I ordered the pumpkin fettuccine with amaretto sauce and found it way too sweet. I could only eat about 4 bites so we boxed it. Didn't like the bruschetta and my daughter said it wasn't like it usually was. I did, however, love their calamari, meatballs and chocolate cheesecake! ( all separate dishes of course! )
My daughter asked for no tomatoes in her salad but got them anyway. Our waitress was very attentive, professional yet friendly.
Nice place but
next time I go there will be during the week when it's not so crazy busy!

Dinner at Rosie's
Four of us dined recently at Rosie's. This was not a first-time trip, as we have been there several times before, and will return. It's the food and the place itself that brings us back. Not a quiet place, but what popular restaurant is? The food and service are outstanding, and good service is something I look for in recommending a dining experience, especially in a place that is a bit on the expensive side. And that is not a minus factor in any way. We'll be back!

Best kept secret!
We are in and out of Toledo on a somewhat regular basis and have never heard of this place. We had tickets to the Stranahan & decided to try! It was fantastic from the moment we sat down. We had a seasoned server who was outstanding. She was well versed on food, drink & of course dessert. I had the veal parm & my wife had one of the chef's daily seafood specials. Delish!!!! I highly recommend the pickle martini. It was an unexpected tastey cocktail. We need our meal with carrot cake, that was simply amazing!!! Needless to say we were in a food coma by the time we left.

Friends & Family
I enjoyed the ambience and the artichoke & spinach pizza too.
My friend was less impressed with the lobster bisque...said it
Tasted like tomato. I'm going back.

It is expensive, but for a once in awhile treat this is a great location. The food is terrific!
