    I met 5 friends for a Friday night dinner. None of us had ever been here before, and we were all blown away by the entire evening. Food was great - some unusual dishes & good standards. Service was excellent and decor is lovely. Will definitely return.

    TRB has the best, freshest food in Lower Bucks. Great menu that changes frequently, awesome specials. The atmosphere can be a little noisy if crowded. The value is the best. Great food for a reasonable price. If you are in Yardley or in the area you must give it a try.

    Our second visit to Rosa Bianca proved to be as nice as the first. The menu is an Italian culinary pleasure. The food is fresh and well prepared and presented. The beat salad is very good. The meatballs are a nice side. Wife liked the salmon and the cheese and meat anti pasta plate is nice with your BYOB. We will return soon nice place close to home.

    Enjoyable find! Knowledgeable staff. Good food. Reasonable price. Loved that its a BYOB, They also featured some outdoor dining, however we chose to eat inside due to the humid night. New Menu, however I think they need to expand it a bit. Overall, a great experience which will bring us back.

    The clean and bright old Victorian home is a great setting with multiple dining "rooms" (literally!). Porch seating is also available. The service was prompt, friendly, and comfortably paced. The fresh salad was lightly coated with a sightly sweet white balsamic vinaigrette. The veal cutlet was perfectly breaded, lightly fried and not at all greasy. The frutti di mare had wonderfully fresh seafood with a spicy sauce that left a slight warmth in your mouth but without burning. Whipped cheesecake (not nearly as heavy as NY style) was a nice finishing note. As we were leaving, a table across the way was just served the meatball appetizer. It looked and smelled wonderful. We plan to return for that! Off-street parking in the rear is a plus.

    My wife and I visited on a Saturday around 6:30. The service was excellent and so was the food. We ordered appetizers, soup, salad and entree. Mussels and clams were great! Tomato basil soup excellent. Salad good too. By entree time, we knew we would not be able to eat everything in one sitting. Entrees were excellent also. Enjoyed our leftovers the next day. BYOB is an added plus here.

    We felt like we were in Italy as soon as we walked in the door. The staff welcomed us like they'd been hoping we'd drop by. The service was fast and friendly. They gave us the time and space we needed to order and dine at our pace. It was tough to decide what to order, everything sounded so good as described by our waiter, Marvin. And he did not exaggerate. Delicious dishes, expertly prepared with fresh ingredients. The place is a gem and the chef is a treasure. If you are looking for a place with the look, the feel and the flavors of Italy, there is no better spot in on either side of the Delaware River. Get to Trattoria Rose Bianca. You won't be sorry you did.

    we arrived with great anticipation. we had already looked at the menu on line and knew what we were going to order in advance. we ordered several appetizers (6) so that we could really check out the cuisine. none of them stood out as memorable. additionally, we ordered some main courses and were eagerly anticipating the veal scallopine. it was over breaded, overcooked and bland. overall it was a very average experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/20/2014
    Tried the trattoria for the first time with colleagues for lunch. The appetizer I ordered was very tasty and an appropriate size for one. My colleague ordered the soup of the day and enjoyed it. I ordered the watercress salad, in which they were out of featured cheese so I was persuaded to substitue mozzarella for it. When it arrived it literally had 8 diced pieces of cheese, half the size of sugar cubes. There was no lettuce just the watercress which in itself has very little substance to. I would like to extend a suggestion...if you are going to stay open in Yardley where you have the Yardley Inn as competition, you may want to step up you game. No one is that refined that they do not enjoy a full portion. Server was almost nonexistant.

    We first dined at Trattoria Rosa Bianca on Valentines Day and had a very nice experience; excellent service and solid menu offerings. Sadly, subsequent visits have revealed an overall degradation in service and food quality. Most recently, by 5:30 PM on Mother's Day all of the specials and a good portion of the regular menu items had been sold out. The capstone of that dining experience was the arrival of two different sized/priced orders a gnocchi dish; the orders were presented in different bowls, but appeared to contain the same quantity of gnocchi. Thinking it was an optical illusion, we emptied the bowls contents onto appetizer plates (left behind by inattentive staff), and found the portion amounts were the same.

    Came here for Mother's Day. We had an early dinner, it wasn't crowded, which was nice, but you would have never known it from the service. It took 5-10 minutes for someone to even open our wine & the waitress didn't come over for another 10 minutes after that. By the time she finally took our order over 40 minutes had passed. The food was delicious. All of our entrees were superb. For dessert, they gave us some options & we chose the lemon pie with blueberry topping.... We thought it would be like a lemon meringue without the meringue...it was pound cake. It was ok, nothing special & we were disappointed that it wasn't a pie like the waitress had said. Overall, it was ok. Unfortunately the service put a damper on the experience.

    I requested that we go to my favorite restaurant for dinner on Mother's Day - Trattoria Rosa Bianca. Once again we had a delicious meal and perfect service. I could quietly enjoy being with my wonderful family and no one had to do anything except enjoy. This restaurant is my choice for a celebration or simply an enjoyable night out.

    . First they totally forgot our salads, we sat for 25 minutes with no one checking on us and then our main dish came out and we were like ok what happened to our salads? we got our soup but no salad. The waitress offered for us to take our salads home... no if I wanted salad at home I would have stayed home and had a salad. . We then gave our gift certs we had and she mis-applied one of them . . They offered us just my desert a piece of cake for free because it was our anniversary! What they should have done was taken the soups off the bill for forgetting our salads and then gave us desert for BOTH of us complimentary. I wont go out of my way to go there but is the occasion arises I will eat there again.

    I had read some uneven reviews (diff site) but the last 6 months worth seemed positive; decided to go. The service was friendly and quick - it was a Wednesday. There was probably a bit too much time in between the recitation of specials and returning to take our order, but we are a chatty bunch; I can let that go. Appetizers were uniformly tasty: mozz en carozza could have been grilled a bit more. The vinaigrette on the caponata was delicious. The bf got the risotto special: shrimp, spinach, tomato cream. It was slightly too goopy. The rest of us got pasta in some form (pappardelle, fettucini) and it was over-cooked across the board. Not cool. If you are going to make your own pasta you have to cook it al dente. Flavors were good.

    The food at Rosa Bianca just gets better and better. The service is attentive and interactive. Reggie is plus. The menu for lunch and dinner is essentially the same, which is a good thing with so many choices. Tables are nicely spaced, so business or personal conversation is easy. RB is a BYOB, with a Pennsylvania State Liquor Store within walking distance should you forget the wine. Rosa Bianca is a welcome addition to the Yardley / Bucks dining scene.

    I was very disappointed. To start we waited a good 5 minutes for our waiter to come over, he was wiping down other tables. I ordered the salsiccia e fagiole soup, which was good, in fact the best part of our meal. The bread was dry. My wife ordered the risotto di asparagus, which was very simple, not anything special. I ordered the vitello alla milanese, which was nothing more than two average slices of veal cutlet; deep fried and had very little taste, and was accompanied by arugula(with nothing on it) no sides at all, meaning not even a vegetable or starch. For $27.00 something should have showed up!!!!

    Food slightly misses the mark. Service and ambience were fine. Nice salad accompanying the enter was good, and portions were large, so an appetizer is not necessary. BYOB makes the place a bargain. On a whole, this place is fine, but not great. Yardley Inn is a much better choice in the same neighborhood.

    We have eaten at Rosa Bianca six times and have never been dissapointed. The place is a wonderful recreation of a Cape May type Victorian house. The food is excellent, the sauces are great, the servers are always polite, helpful and friendly. The value for the price is terrific, and being a BYOB is the icing on the cake. We love it there and recommend it to everyone who is looking for a new place to dine.

    Bread was flavorless and stale. We got a pasta dish and 2 meals. The pasta had this overwhelming lemon taste for some reason. All of the dishes were EXTREMELY salty. It was hard to eat them without drinking a gallon of water. Everything would have been good with less salt and less lemon on the pasta.
