Recently opened in 2018, Rosina's is a comfortable restaurant located in the heart of downtown Toronto. We serve authentic, homemade Italian food with recipes that have been handed down through generations. We simply serve old-fashioned homemade dishes in the manner that Rosina has always made our family’s food.

This is hands down my favourite restaurant in Toronto at the moment. The food is top notch, service incredible and the atmosphere is what you would expect from a top class restaurant but with a relaxed Southern Italian spin. A rare find in the King West neighbourhood!

This restaurant is one of my all time favorites. Serve is fantastic and their penne rosina + pizza calabrese are killer. Too good and consistent every time!

Very disappointed in the food quality. It has always been top notch...but this time the veal marsala was cold. Pasta was extremely undercooked. I will say that the manager contacted us and apologized for the experience. We will return again.

We had a reservation on the patio. We didn't stay because the staff were not wearing masks and they come very close as they lean in to talk to you. We did not feel safe.
