    My husband has been wanting to try this restaurant out for a while and we finally got the chance to do it. The food was really good from the appetizers to dessert so we will definitely return to try out a few more things that looked delicious.

    My wife and I went to Rosie's for a quiet night out even though Rosie's can be a bit loud, in a good way, everyone enjoying the ambiance. Well we started talking to our neighbors at the next table and found three new friends. That's the way it is there. Every meal is a new memory.

    We arrived at Rosie's expecting a brunch menu and eggs in many styles, but no brunch, bistro only. The food was very good, LOTS of it. Service was amiable, and we were not rushed so we hung out for almost three hours. Bill was moderate and we went away happy.

    My wife and I recently had dinner with another couple on Thursday evening (6:30 reservation). We were seated promptly at a spacious table. We each had an appetizer salad, main course and desert. We all ordered something different and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. We were served promptly but we never felt rushed. We all agreed that Rosie's was a place that we would return to again very soon.

    This small restaurant, directly across from St. Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, has a great menu with very reasonable prices. In addition to traditional Italian favorites (a must for my daugther!) they have some inventive starters and entrees. Defiinitely make a reservation if you are dining after 6:30 - the restaurant was packed on a Tuesday night!

    Rosie's is a restaurant we go to when we want a guaranteed great meal in a lovely atmosphere. I have tried almost everything on the menu and all the dishes are fresh and delicious with sauces a specialty. In addition, every time I think I know what I am going to have before I go, there is some kind of wonderful special that just blows me away. The service is always friendly and attentive but not overwhelming. I suggest you finish your meal with one of their desserts as they are unique and wonderful.

    I go to Rosie's pretty often - more for special occasions but it's great for a regular night out too. The service and food are consistently good. I was there the other night with a group of 6 and we were seated at a nice round table which we so much prefer! I almost dropped the ball on requesting a slice of birthday cake and candle for the birthday girl - I made the request while on a trip to the restroom and the waitress pulled it off seamlessly. She gave me a quick choice of desserts and the lemon cake was superb and was presented in a picture perfect manner! You won't be disappointed with your visit to Rosie's! (I had the chilean sea bass and had the risotto substituted (dairy allergy) with asparagus - still thinking about it!)

    I hosted a birthday dinner for a friend on 5/7. There were 7 people attending. Every one of us had a delicious meal ( the veal martino is my personal favorite!) The service was excellent. We were not rushed so we could enjoy our celebration. I have been to Rosie's many times and it is always a winner. I plan to be back again very soon.

    We drive 20 miles to get to Rosie's, passing many restaurants on the way. We were not disappointed. Each time it gets better. Walking in reminds me of an upscale NYC bar scene w/ well dressed patrons & lively conversation. We were greeted warmly by an adorable hostess, smiling & made acted that she was glad to see us. Our table was in the back room, away from the action. But the room filled up quickly, with well dressed, larger parties. The service was great & the server was alive with personality and a sense of humor. Drinks were generous & the wine list was fairly priced. Then came the meal. YUM ! We agreed, the food was fresh, tasty, & portions were generous. A must visit even for us "Northern Westchester folks.

    I've been meaning to try this Restaraunt for a long time. I went during Restaraunt week and it was great. The Portions were big and the food was delicious. The service was great and I can't wait to go there again. I'm so glad I tried it. I live in the area and I love supporting those near me. I have also owned my own Restaraunt so I know good food and how a Restaraunt should be run. Rosie you got my vote! Keep doing what you are doing. Angela.

    Start of snowstorm didn't deter us to celebrate at this wonderful restaurant. Salmon was cooked perfectly, as was the Chilean Sea Bass. Too much butter in both the spinach and broccoli rabe marred the vegetable sides. The lemon cake was to die for.

    Excellent food in good portions and served hot. Reservations accommodated on time. Good glass of wine for the price. Only down side is that tables are too close together and restaurant is somewhat noisy which negates a romantic dinner. However, if only an excellent meal is desired, this is the place.

    We are regular occasionals at Rosie's, that is, we come two to three times a year when we host out-of-town guests and of all places in Bronxville, this one is the most reliably good one. The wine list is solid and so are the dishes. Don't ask to split your salads as this makes the servings really small (and you want to enjoy your arugula with pear, pecan and goat cheese). Their cantuccini are among the best you will find in metro NY. The best measure of an Italian restaurant, however, is their tomato sauce and their "signature" dish here is plain old spaghetti pomodore. Chances are it beats that of your Italian grandma. Don't get discouraged by the staff at the entrance - once you made it past them, the service is reliably good.

    Small restaurant. I was expecting a bit better place. The location is not in the more transitted part of Bronxville so it was very quiet. It needs some redecorating... the paintings hanging on the walls were weird and had some females showing their breasts, so that I did not like for a dining atmosphere. Cannot complain about the service, they were very attentive. The food was good, but not excellent. My son loved the pizza primavera and my daughter also loved here pasta marinara. I had the sole with rissotto, the sole needed more taste but was cooked well. My husband had the veal parmignana. the cutlets seemed a bit thick, but he did not complain about the taste.

    I went with three friends to Rosie's for lunch during restaurant week. The appetizers and desserts were fabulous. The veal selection that two of us ordered came as chicken and was very dry. It was fried with a salad greens on top and lacked any kind of spice. It was not up to the usual Rosie's offering. The other two friends had the filet of sole which they thought was fabulous.
