Incredible service! Giovanni went above and beyond to get us a better table!! The food was incredible! Def going back again and again! The Gorgonzola pear pizza, the calamari and the prosciutto burratta were my faves!
Honestly the best Italian restaurant in all of Toronto!
Very fast service during our visit. Delicious food. Friendly staff
This is the best Italian restaurant in Toronto, I always recommend my to friends and family!
Rosina pasta was delicious. All their pastas and other dishes sound so good. One of the best Italian restaurants. Def coming back!
Quaint Italian restaurant with quality food and drinks. Would highly recommend. The staff are all very friendly and give great recommendations!
We were a party of four celebrating a girl’s night out. The food was incredible, and service was amazing. We sat outside on the patio which was great. We had apps, pasta, and pizza and everything was delicious. Awesome authentic Italian!!
My husband and I have been dining here for years. We absolutely love Ristorante Rosina and everyone we bring there loves it too! The food and service are outstanding. We definitely recommend this gem for your next outing!
It was an amazing experience. We took my aunt for her 60th birthday and she loved ever second. The service was so friendly and diligent. Our orders came out so hot and quick. Everything was amazing. We will be back!!!
Good pasta and quick service. I definitely recommend this restaurant.
the best, always
Just a small since we are in a pandemic, most of the staff barely wore their masks and seemed to have them off while delivering the food to the table and put them back on while they walked away from the table. Kind of defeats the purpose but I would recommend the staff to fully be wearing their masks at all points while guests are in their restaurant or outside on the patio. Pizza was delicious!
Great table right at the window. There were 5 of us. We shared 3 appetizers : calamari/shrimp, bruschetta and olives - and fresh and delicious. Everyone ordered a different dinner and all raved about their dish. Service was attentive and prompt. Lovely staff. We will be going back. Great portions and prices were reasonable
This was a terrible experience. My pasta had an egg shell in it. The arancini was served to us cold, possibly frozen. Pasta was not cooked throughly.
Great service and management! We loved Giovanni, he was personable and attentive! Can’t wait to go again!
The food was authentic Italian, the service was outstanding and the value was unbelievable.
The food was hot off the stove, spiced well and of good quality. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. The food arrived really quickly. Almost too quickly if you are trying to have a relaxing dinner. I would suggest you order your appetizer and main course separately to allow a bit more time to chat and enjoy your wine.
Although it is very hot outside and it may be difficult to manage the temperature, the dining room was too warm to be comfortable. The restaurant is not social distancing inside or outside. There is a long bench that runs along the wall so at least one person at the table will sit on a hard wooden bench.
The other diners were very loud. We spent more time overhearing other conversations, which made it hard to speak to each other. That's not the restaurant's fault.
Overall, I would recommend Ristorante Rosina because the service and the food are really good. I suggest they work on the ambience.
Amazing! Terrific beer on tap we can’t get locally that is from Italia (the amber) and incredible authentic pasta.
The food and service, as always, was fantastic.
Be quite careful. Sadly, the restaurant does not follow Covid protocols. A list
1) No AC. That means there is no real ventilation indoors.
2) No distancing. Not really a probably outdoors, but a big deal indoors. Especially given the poor ventilation.
3) No information taken. Granted, they have my info from Open Table, but there was no attempt to get info for contact tracing.
4) mask wearing - the cooks and the dishwashers did not wear masks. I understand why they didn’t because…no air circulation.
In short, we wore our masks when we weren’t eating, we ate quickly and we left quickly. We just didn’t feel comfortable.
It’s a shame, because it’s such a great restaurant with fantastic food. And we know they’re trying to recuperate from the past 18 months. But protocols are protocols.
Was a last Minute booking and we were so happy with the Great service. Food was authentic Italian, pomodoro sauce was superb as well as the arancini! would definitely return as there was so much on the menu we wanted to try.
Would definitely recommend! One of the best spots on king street for italian food. The staff is amazing and attentive and makes it the best part of the experience - thank you! Will be back
Great food and service! No complaints
Great food and wonderful ambiance!
This is my second time here, once before pandemic and then once recently.. This place does not disappoint. Food and service are impeccable, we will be back again!
Best Italian restaurant in Toronto. Like sitting down in a classic Italian village for some great food.
The food was really good. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals and the appetizers we shared. The ambiance was also great with lots of energy. What keeps this from being a 5 star in my experience is the service. Everyone was friendly, but it felt very rushed as if they were anxious to get us out. I’m sensitive to the need to manage that, but drinks, appetizers and a main were pushed through in 60 minutes. Our mains were ready before we even finished the BV appetizers. Also I included a note in my reservation about it being a special occasion and asked for them them to do something simple with dessert (and indicated I was happy to pay for it), but it went completely unacknowledged.
Again I’ll emphasize that the meal was great and I’m always happy to support local. In this experience a few things missed the mark but this place has great potential.
Always a pleasure dining at Rosina!
Fantastic food at a very affordable price in a cozy spot. Great Italian is hard to come by. Will definitely be back. Certainly a new fave.
Absolutely love this place.
Best server! Amazing food. Also they are super fast!
service was good - food arrived fast - the quality and presentation of the food was something you’d get at a Fast Food restaurant
It was amazing from the service to the food to the atmosphere all around great spot
Fantastic food, super fast!! We had our main dishes within 15 minutes of being seated. I did notice that none of the cooks and a lot of the staff that weren’t directly interacting with customers weren’t wearing masks though, which made me nervous about potential Covid transmission.
delicious food and friendly staff! Would recommend!
Probably one of the most authentic Italian places in Toronto. Low key and small without being pretentious.
Real authentic Italian. Great service and quality food. One of my favourite go to meals. Gnocchi is unreal.
Amazing food and service
Good casual italian food with great service.
