The food and service keeps regulars coming back and the price fix lunch menue is reasonably priced.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an enjoyable experience.Excellent food, special preparations not a problem. Attentive staff.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOld World Northern ItalianRossinni's in Murray Hill is a quiet, step back in time kind of restaurant, that not only impresses tourists, but NYC locals as well. There is a comfortable bar as you enter into Rossini's, which is a great place to wait for your guests, begin your evening or end the evening with an after dinner cocktail.
The dining room is comfortable, intimate and not overly decorated. All of the dining tables all have nice place settings. The lighting is soft, yet bright enough to read the menu. The live piano player in the background added to the ambiance of the dining experience.
There were a variety of specials as well as a large variety of choices on the main menu. The food all came out at the same time, and was beautifully presented.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. AttentiveExcellent food. Attentive wait staff. Live music appealing to older folks - on Saturday anyway. The singing was OK but a bit loud and distracting.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and food.Excellent service and food. But the music made it even better.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great evening!Outstanding , I took my husband here for his Birthday. We got stuck in horrible traffic and we ended up being an hour late. They saved the table for us. Dinner, service all terrific . They even had arranged for the singers to sing happy birthday to him. They made it a memorable fun evening. I can't thank them enough!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food and interesting staffwe had reservations before the theatre. We arrived early so we wouldn't be rushed or stressed getting to the play on time. No one was there but that was not a big deal. It was unusual that given we were the only ones there, we had to ask for menu's. We did not really know who was our server. The food was very, very good. The service, once it got going, was good as well.
After dinner, we asked if they could get us a taxi, they said they didn't have the number!! Luckily we were able to get one within 10 minutes. Having to do this was OK but to tell us they don't have a number is crazy.
I would go back; it was a throw back of old Italy and years past. The staff was very interesting too.Not sure if authentic or part of the ambian4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBeware the desert menu - yumWe were welcomed and quickly shown to our table, the staff worked as a team and made sure we promptly had something to drink and a menu to read. Our order was taken without making us feel rushed or hanging around. The food service was good - fast enough to satisfy but not so fast that you wondered if the food had been sitting around.
Beware of asking for the desert menu if you are on a diet. When we asked, a plate was set in front of us with each desert laid out there for us to see it. Only one of us was for having a desert but when this platter arrived and sat on the table all four of us had something!
Excellent all round, good choice, good service, good food, good atmosphere. Enjoy!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are never disappointedWe are never disappointed with our visit to Rossini's.
