    This lovely restaurant situated in the center of charming Yardley, PA is a gem. The food is consistently delicious and the prices are reasonable for the generous portions. Service is attentive yet not overbearing. If you tell your server you have to be somewhere at a specific time, he/she goes above and beyond to make sure you are done in a timely fashion.

    Been three times and this was brst visit yet. Food and service has improved each time. I still find the interior a bit spare even with the rstored Victorian wood work, and parking is pretty tight, but the food is great. Had the cod cakes. Was expecting cod flavored potato cakes like my mom made, but this had big suculaent chunks of cod. The beet salad was flavorful and could have used more beets and less arugula (come on they're cheap). The complimentary focaccio woukd have been better warmed. The vegetable timbalo was unique and terrific. Our waitress was terrific. We mentioned that we has accidentally left our wine at home and she set us up with complimentary house red, was extremely attentive the whole night. We will be returning.

    We had a wonderful dinner Friday night at Trattoria Rosa Bianca. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the menu options are always unique and delicious! We started with salmon crudo which was light, fresh, and delicious. We also enjoyed the complimentary house salad and bread with olive oil and tapenade. I had the lasagna for dinner and it was so flavorful. The spare rib meat in the dish was perfection! My husband enjoyed our favorite dish, the frutti di mare, with pasta and it never disappoints. For dessert, we shared the cheesecake and it was absolutely exquisite. It was a whipped treat that was not at all the heavy cheesecake i am use to. Overall, an absolutely delightful dinner.

    This restaurant is wonderful in most regards. It's a small town restaurant with big city style. The menu is nicely varied and there is something for everyone. We were able to eat outside on the "porch" and enjoy the evening fully. There were only two issues we had - the service for our main meal was VERY slow and the dessert menu is extremely limited which is unfortunate for those with a sweet tooth!

    My wife and I dined at TRB on Friday, looking for an opportunity to wind down from a tough week and to enjoy imaginative, nice food. We were not disappointed. From the special appetizer (grilled eggplant parmigiana) and the polpette (super fresh and perfectly fluffy), through the orechietti al forno and lasagna di maiale brasato, as well as the bread and salad, everything was prepared with care and presented with an appealing flair. The service? One word -- Reggie. Reggie has served us before several times, and he never disappoints. The place was hopping, but Reggie didn't miss a beat. We relaxed, we enjoyed, and we went home happy. Don't miss TRB.

    Edited for size: Mixed reviews previously, they “just missed” on some things. Last night three of us visited. Outstanding meal, terrific service. We're not “difficult” but, DEMANDING. We order one course at a time, We do a lot of sharing. We don’t re-use flatware, we like to take our time. Flatrware was mentioned once, and handled from then on. No big deal , unless it matters and sometimes the response is poor. Food: Originally I broke down the meal but, I am space limited here. I think the service issues we have seen in the past are behind them. These are good people who put a lot of love into their restaurant. I want them to succeed for their benefit and for mine. One wish? A bit more creativity with the right side of the menu.

    Had dinner at your restaurant Friday night. This Sunday was sitting at a bar watching pro football. A number of us began to compare notes on local restaurants. We all agreed that portions at Trattoria Rosa Bianca were too small for the prices charged. This was agreed by four men in this conversation and all four said they would not go back for this reason. All four agreed that the quality of the food was excellent but the portions too small and the prices too high. Also it was felt that the entrées took too long to be served - from the time the food is ordered from the waitress to the time it is served at the table.

    This was our second visit & enjoyed our dinner very much. Our best choice also for Yardley's Restaurant Week. The menu that was offered for the week was excellent & gave some very nice choices. The furnishings such as the soft white curtains lend a very airy warm feeling to the ambiance. The staff were very busy, but that did not stop them from being very attentive.

    Just about everything is fresh and locally produced. Menu is imaginative and not unmanageable. Pastas are made in house. Not inexpensive. But, very good value considering the care and quality of preparation. (Especially when you take into account that this is a BYOB!) Service is knowledgeable, helpful and casual. Dine on the wrap-around covered porch in nice weather. (It's even OK in the rain.) Watch the Yardley street scene (such as it is) go by.

    Beautiful Victorian style restaurant split into small dining rooms make for an intimate setting. We started with the caprese salad and both agreed it was excellent. For our entree we both had the vitello alla milanese with arugula, with a side of pasta pomodoro. Another excellent choice, although, at this place I think anything you order would be excellent. The deserts sounded so great we decided we had to try one so we decided on the cheesecake. Absolutely heavenly! It was so light! Our server was very attentive and did a wonderful job! We will definitely be back again.

    The most horrible dining experience I've had in a long time. Marvin, out waiter, was out to lunch himself. Took poor care of us. Didn't clear dishes in between courses. Special salad, $10 extra was thrown together with yellow and brown lettuce. My food was bland. The cappucino tasted like dish water. I will never return. Marvin would literally drop the plates and go. I mean they would go "ker-plunk" when he dropped them. Never came back to see if our meal was ok. Treated us like we were an inconvenience. Still charged me for the salad although I told him to take it away. I had to ask him to remove it from the bill. Never came back for the check so I had to bring it inside. Addios amigos!

    Dinner was good, service very pleasant. The disappointment was dessert, we ordered the peach and blackberry tart with blueberry sauce to go. when we got home and looked at it we were surprised to say the least. It was a very thin pastry crust with a few peach slices about 3 blackberries and a half teaspoon of blue sauce? Not worth $7 at all and not even tasty.

    We had a wonderful experience at Rosa Bianca at a modest cost. Although a Friday night, Open Table got us a reservation just 45 minutes from being on line. Our meal was exceptional. For an appetizer I had the arancine. It was light, fluffy and very tasty. My main course was a Frutti di Mare with a wonderful collection of shrimp, mussels, scallops, calamari cooked to perfection in a light tomato sauce and a side of crunchy green chard. My partner's started with a beautiful salad with thin slice of pancetta followed by a generous half-order of fettucine with crab accompanied by a caponata. Unlike many 'traditional' Italian restaurants, food Rosa Bianca's food was light and refreshing. Meeting the owner was a joy. We'll happily return.

    Have been to Rosa Bianca about 8 times. It keeps getting better each time we go. Menu is seasonal so it varies, with interesting main courses and side courses. I had Fruitta de Mare with papradelle and it was wonderful. The other two in the party had veal and salmon, both very nice. Friendly service, the owner is very personable. A great neighborhood place.

    For appetizer, we ordered calamari - which is okay but the sauce is bland, no taste at all. It is cold and missing something and caponata primavera - salty and cold..seems like these food came from refrigerator. Then for entree: lasagna - very very salty and orecchiette - too much cheese. The also big concern is the bread that brings to you with a dipping oil. First of all, the bread is very very hard and seems like more than 2 day old, on a stale state. Yes, the dipping oil was with garlic, pepper and olive but still no taste at all. I think it will be better if added a Parmesan cheese or some herbs. We did not finish all the food that we ordered. The place is nice and clean and staff are all friendly but service is nothing special.
