Sunday night dinner with my family was outstanding. Staff treated my 11 and 8 year olds like royalty.
This is a classic with old school decor and terrific food.
Start with the calamari appetizer and order the lasagna. You will be in food heaven!

Food, wine, service!!
Appetizer for the day was an excellent salad w avocado shrimp and scallop. Then, just had to ask for appetizer of ravioli which again was great and thankfully we asked for it as it wasn't on the menu. Bronzino was great. Piano music was a hit. Not too noisy and good enough for conversation!! Nice service team.

Great Business Dinner
Topped off a business meeting with a dinner at Rossini's based off a co-worker's recommendations. Food was fantastic, service was amazing. For a table of 8 - we were able to still have conversations with the whole table, without feeling like we had to whisper or shout. The Piano player brought a nice touch to relax everyone after a very long day. Definitely going back next time in town.

Rossini's had a $29 lunch
Rossini's had a $29 lunch special, with many choices. I ordered the baked clams, and eggplant parm, both of which were delicious. The sauces were clearly homemade and very memorable. Dessert was included, but nothing special. Next time, I'll try them for dinner, which I expect will be as good as their lunch.

Oh, what a find! This neighborhood
Oh, what a find! This neighborhood gem in Murray Hill is a classic Italian experience. Like stepping back into the 60's but updated enough not to feel old, the atmosphere can only be described as charming. Not overly busy, but a reasonable crowd was there, and ranged from out-of-town visitors to people who I'm sure have eaten there many times over the years - regulars who live in the neighborhood. The piano player had a great command of classics to recent hits, and at times you could see patrons singing quietly with their favorite songs.
The food was excellent, prepared and served with care by a wait staff that was attentive but not overbearing. A nice selection of quality wines is available at decent prices. Don't miss the deserts!

I am a repeat customer. I try to get to Rossini's when I visit NYC and plan to return. The food and staff were outstanding once again. My only issue during this vist was the slow speed of the wait staff. Dinner took 3 hours. I know this is not always the situation.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a memorable experience. If it’s not on the menu they will make it for you. Piano every evening. When I want to impress a friend I bring them here.

Authentic New York Restaurant
Service, food, décor - all outstanding. This is not a hipster restaurant yet there is nothing uncool about it. Sophisticated and old world without being the least bit dated. Equally excellent for date night and a large group celebrating a special occasion.

My husband had been here several times with business friends and always came home raving about the food, service etc. We had out of town friends in and I decided to try it. I cannot tell you how impressed our friends were. There was nothing that was not top rate.

Great food, Great Wine, Great Servi
The food was absolutely delicious! Captain and the waiters are poised, well spoken and very attentive. We loved everything about Rossini's

Dinner & a Show
Always like going to Rossini's where the food and service is always good and you get t listen to some very good music. The Saturday night we were there they had two excellent singers with piano accompainment. It was very entertaining.

Nice Restaurant Week Place
We had lovely Restaurant Week dinners. The selection was greater than most, the food delicious and the portions were very generous. I will definitely recommend Rossini's and will go back.

Dinner at Rossini's
This was our first visit to Rossini's. Dinner was delicious and the restaurant charming. We went for restaurant week but ordered from the regular menu. The portions were perfect and very flavorful. The room was warm and welcoming. The piano music was the crowning touch to a lovely evening. I would highly recommend it.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Rossini's never fails to provide first rate service and food. Six of us had a wonderful lunch ordering off of the specials of the day and each one was very good. A staple in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan that is continually outstanding.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Rossini's is a perfect place to sit and enjoy a meal. The menu is well thought out and the staff is very helpful.
8/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very good Italian food served by a charming and attentive staff--the friendliest anywhere. It's a perfect neighborhood place but on weekends it fills up with regulars who come from all over--for the food and the opera singers who perform and take requests. It's been a favorite of mine for years--and it continues to satisfy and surprise.

My Favorite Restaurant in the U.S.
Outstanding food and service. My favorite restaurant in the U.S.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Piano keys softly twinkling in the background are to the ear, what the soft, ambient light, and warm decor are to the eyes. They invite you in and and recall another era where people made the most of dining out. However, the best part of dining at Rossini's was both the attentive and friendly staff--(they smile!) and the wonderful food. I have been here several times before and have always had a great experience.

Always a treat
exceptional service provided by a great staff, the food (and wine) recommendations are always spot on, for a good old fashioned night out with family and/or friends you can't beat it
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
What you want. Classic NYC!
Too notch food, drinks and service. This, hard to beat restaurant is a classic and one not to miss if you are looking for outstanding italian food. Plus, the service is dead solid perfect.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
For 22 years I have been dining at Rossini's and the only thing that has changed is that I got little bit older.
The food is always prepared to perfection.
It is like Grandma is cooking in there kitchen just for you.

1950's elegant romantic italian
A trip back to where ambiance and service and quality are the main events. There is no hip hip music, no loud noisy boisterous crowds of wannabes. This is old school. A piano player playing Sinatra, Ella, and the great american songbook. Juts for the ambiance and service, I would go back. There is a Captain, waiters, busboys, water boys. But, they respect your privacy and let you linger if you wish. Food was very very good, if not inventive. You want something not on the menu, no problem. Gentelmen mostly in jackets. Ladies dressed appropriately and elegantly. My kind of place.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's a GEM!
Lucky us we moved to the Murray Hill neighborhood and Rossini's is our neighborhood gem. Fabulous Italian food. Worth a visit - or three!

family dinner get together
Food great, piano player nice touch, great service and we all had a nice evening. However this is not a cheap evening.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great, and we were treated like old friends.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
They treat you like they care here. The four of us enjoyed our food (veal and pasta dishes), which was well prepared and nicely presented, except the squid which was rubbery rathe than crispy. The opera singers are a nice touch, although occasionally a little intrusive for conversation.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food but unexperienced servic
Food was very good. But our servant must have been new. We waited more than 30 min to get the menu, and his wine knowledge was not good.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been going for 15 yrs. When ever I'm in New York
This is a must, for one of my Dinners
Never a bad meal, Service is always a pleasure.

Old World Ambiance
Enjoyed the pleasant, old world atmosphere here. Tables nicely spaced apart, two dining levels, as well as a separate bar area at the entrance, attentive service and an added bonus of a piano player during dinner. Nice selections on the menu. I had chicken dish that was very moist, tender and tasty and a delicious white and chocolate mousse cake for dessert. The clientele ranged from couples, seniors and a few groups of 20ish guys and girls. We will return.

Right after marriage, my wife and me had a fantastic night out at Rossini. Superb!

From Hat Check to Dessert
This is what midwesterner thinks of when they hear 'NYC restaurant' Top notch service from the second you walk in the door. Treated like an old friend on my first trip. Dover Sole and Snapper dishes a delight. Don't forget dessert.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dinner for four
Recommended by a NYC friend, and Rossini's did not disappoint. Multi-level medium sized room with a very pleasant decor, live piano playing with suitable dinner music, excellent service and wonderful and delicious food and wine choices. Owner travels the room frequently insuring that Guests are well served and satisfied.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great neighborhood find
This restaurant was a great find in the neighborhood. The $25 lunch was a great value , giving us a great place to have an office celebration with everyone! The service caws impeccable . The food was very good. The atmosphere is a bit outdated for today's modern crowd, but the food and service help you overlook that.

The food was delicious and
The food was delicious and the service was very good. The only complaint is that a small child was screaming as we finished our meal…not enjoyable at all !!!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always this is a great place to sit, relax and enjoy a meal. They do not rush you, pay attention to your special requests and genuinely care about you. The music is always a plus..
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Much Improve !
Our first visit the service was very poor . We were invited back and the service was exceptional with after dinner drinks provided by the owner . The opera performance on Saturday evenings are outstanding .

My family of four was in NYC for Thanksgiving week and wanted to venture away from the traditional turkey dinner on Thanksgiving Day. Rossini's was an excellent choice and had more than enough entre' options for our entire party. The atmosphere was quiet, the service excellent and the food outstanding, outstanding, outstanding!!! The server was informative and we weren't rushed. It was easily walkable from our hotel on 35th street near Macy's. We will come back on our next trip.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
A touch of Italy in Manhattan
We enjoyed the special 5 course Thanksgiving menu with our family. The food was plentiful and delicious and the staff could not have been more gracious or attentive. We received such a warm welcome from the Host who started our evening off in such a pleasant manner. A nice touch was having live piano music during dinner. Very attractive atmosphere. I would recommend Rossini's to either a couple looking for a romantic evening, or a group looking for a special place to have a celebration. In addition to having two separate dining levels, as you enter the restaurant there is a comfortable looking cocktail area where you can enjoy a drink or dinner.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very warm and welcoming. Fabulous Italian food. Excellent wait staff. Live pianist. Fantastic evening.
