    IMPROVED
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Like all restaurants the first couple of weeks of opening its doors are the most difficult however after being open for awhile my wife and I decided to give the restaurant another chance. The feeling when you enter the restaurant is warm as it gives you a little of the past as well as the present. The food is serviced quickly as the staff is in constant motion to keep all its guest happy as they pay more attention to whom they are with vs. wondering when their food is coming out. Overall, my wife have now found a new little gem in Yardley Boro, great job.

    Our family has been wanting to try Rosa Bianca for some time. Our regret is that we waited so long! Wow what a fine place food was exceptional. The soups were hot and delicious. The bread was fresh and hot. The braciole was made as it should be. The sauces were all delicious as well. The food here is on a par with restaurants in Philly! Very pleased and will be back soon. Desserts did not disappoint either.BYOB so bring a good bottle the food requires it!

    We were a group of eight early on a Sunday afternoon. The food was superb, the menu varied with plenty of interesing dishes, service was very good, the price reasonable. Rosa Bianca is on Main Street in Yarley Borough in an old 19th-century house that still has the rooms and lines and feel of a lovely old home. We will certainly be back.

    We enjoy Rosa Bianca very much: however twice now we have been very cold there despite the restaurant's efforts with space heaters to offset the chill. The food is superb; the service is friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The menu has a great selection of delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts. It's a choice that will not disappoint!

    Very happy this lovely gem opened in Yardley! Wonderful to enjoy dining at a restaurant with the goal to use farm to table & organic as often as available. Trattoria Rosa Blanca is charming & fits in just right to the delightful Yardley atmosphere. We were served piping hot, generous courses reminiscent of tasty home cooking. Hats off to the kitchen for carefully choosing & preparing the vegetables, which colorfully added to the attractive entrees. The result? No room to try any of the desserts so far (hope to next visit!!). Service was attentive, took care of our special requests & kept our table neat (much appreciated!). Here's a fun "footnote" - repeat diners may enjoy a discount early in the week if they read their receipt! "Cent'anni"!

    My party of four went to Trattoria Rosa Bianca on Saturday night for a special occassion and we were seated in the front room. It was freezing in that room! Although there were two space heaters in the room, they were not working(or not turned on) and it was cold enough in the room to wear coats. The food was good and service was good(although we had to ask for a bread refill a few times). The room was somewhat noisy also. The restaurant was expensive and I felt for the cost, it should have made sure its diners were comfortable.

    I've driven past many times. So glad my husband and I finally decided to try it. Such a cozy spot. Our server (Ryan) was friendly and professional. Attentive but not overbearing. I had tilapia which was cooked perfectly! My husband's spaghetti with clam sauce was flavorful and the clams tender. My only negative comment was that our room was noisy....just other folks enjoying the evening too! We'll definitely go again and next time request a quieter spot.

    After visiting Trattoria Rosa Bianca for the second time this weekend, I remembered why I hadn't been back in a while. The service is very slow and it takes a long time for you to be approached by the wait staff when you arrive. We were informed that each entree included a salad, however, no salad was served. The food is just OK. This was my last time at this restaurant.

    This was our 2nd Christmas at Rosa Bianca and it was even better the second year. The service was excellent as was the food. We ordered off the regular menu( there was a special 7 fishes menu also) and we were all happy with our selections. Salad was served family style giving us all the choice of a little or a lot! Stuffed sole, strip steak, seafood combo and scallops with rigatoni were all devoured! Chocolate chip cannolis and flourless chocolate torte were decadent. We will be back next Christmas Eve and thru out the year!

    If you want to have conversations as well as a wonderful dinner ask for one of the charming small converted upstairs bedrooms. This old Victorian style home is a perfect backdrop for fresh, well made Italian dishes. Salad included with all entrees is a refreshing surprise and it's a BYO, an added benefit. The larger rooms can be crowded and noises on busy weekends which can be fun if you enjoy the crowd scene. Recommend any of their pasta offerings and the small dishes are not that small. Enjoy

    No problem parking (lunch time). Only 1 other car in the lot when I arrived. Hostess and waiter were very sweet. Waiter took a very long time to take our drink order and the diet coke was slightly flat. Had to ask (and wait) for straws. I ordered a small order of Spaghetti al'amatriciana for $8...didn't come with soup or salad and bread was brought AFTER the meal was delivered to the table...however, the portion size was so generous that a soup/salad and/or bread before would have be too much food. The dish was ABSOLUTELY delicious and I would definitely get it again, but would only go there if I wasn't starving and had the time (and patience) to wait. The friend I was with ordered a Panini and said that it was just "ok". Will try again.

    Our first time at the restaurant. The ambience and the service are excellent unfortunately, the food is not. Our salads were premade and practically frozen tasteless and dry instead of making them fresh. The muscles just don't go together with ham and seafood. I tried to gnocchi's which sounded great once again I was disappointed as the gnocchi's themselves were very heavy, The sauce had never been cooked down so it was like water and then to top the entire evening off they used heavy cream in the cappuccinos or the milk had sat and had a funny taste to it. At 8 PM on a Friday night the place was less than half full and I now see why. Only really need to do is replace the chef.

    This was our third visit to Rosa Bianco. We usually dine early when it's not too crowded, so I can't speak for the noise level. The food is very good as is the service. Prices are reasonable. Mon. and Tues. evenings they offer a 3 course menu for around 20. It's also a BYOB. On this visit we had the vegetable lasagne and the rigatoni bolognese. Each came with a house salad. We also tried the spinach meatball soup. Everything was delicious. All in all, this is a very nice neighborhood restaurant that we look forward to visiting again.

    The quaint Traottoria Rose Bianca is a local gem that looks small but delivers big in food quality and service. The downtown Yardley, PA location makes the most of a renovated and converted home and each room has ambiance. You feel cozy and special. The waiter took extra time with us; the owner came by to see how the food was. The food was excellent -- as good as any big NYC restaurant. We all agreed that we'd go back again. I registered on line, and confirmed that it was a birthday celebration, then promptly forgot!! The restaurant came to our table with a cake and candle that truly moved our friends.
