Outdoor seating was comfortable and covered Staff service was excellent. Comprehensive wine list and the menu items are unique. Especially recommend the lasagna! Very nice upscale vibe but not uncomfortably so.

I usually love Fearless restaurants but Rosalie did not show well last night. Service spotty, drinks took forever & not everyone was asked if they wanted one. They were out of Tito’s vodka. Food was inconsistent- some cold, some unavailable even though it was early. I had noted it was a surprise bday celebration & nothing was done to celebrate the guest.

Absolutely loved dining on the porch. Didn't hurt that the weather was perfect. We each got an app and an entree (2 got pasta, one got fish) and we all loved everything (and tasted each others). We also each got a dessert and of course wine too. Delightful dining experience, can't wait to go back!

The only restaurant I’ll take my friends and family to celebrate special occasions. The cuisine and ambiance makes you feel like you are in Italy living your best life. The chef has created an exquisite menu balanced well with non traditional pasta dishes and protein options. The wine list pairs nicely as well!

Beautiful dining ambiance, very comfortable seating. The service was outstanding. Food came out very quickly, if you want to spend time, don’t order appetizers and dinner together. Sauces were very tasty. Not a menu for vegetarians, but everyone was pleased with dinner. Dessert was excellent too. Generous wine/cocktail list. Highly recommend.

Good cuisine but we were evicted from our table after 90 minutes. It should be spelled out on the restaurant’s Opentable profile if this is going to be enforced, so diners know in advance. You should not be approaching a table to evict them without written forewarning. It is embarrassing and it is not the diner’s fault with no policy written. Especially for a special occasion.

Rosalie is on our list always when we come for the weekend to Villanova. The eggs in the whole are the best anywhere. The Branzino was fresh and tasty. The chef can make even the simplest arugula salad memorable and unique!

Not up to its usual. Been here enough times to say it’s inconsistent. We just lucked out in the room before the DR to get poor service and a very noisy table next to us. Shame- really thought first time it was excellent. This was our fourth time. Anxious to eat in DR because tables too close together.

Great ambiance, food showed up cold, we asked to have it one dish reheated, again came out cold. Had to send it back a second time. Managers never offered any reconciliation other than a “I’m sorry”. Bill was $130 for 2 entrees, 2 apps and a desert.

Salad was $11 for literally lettuce and croutons, arancini was flavorless.

This wasn’t a good night for a usually super spot. Probably due to a holiday weekend, so we’ll give them another chance. Yet, the short ribs which were the evening special, were surprisingly tough and dry…

This was my first time dining at Rosalie. My husband and I had an excellent experience. We had the roasted chicken and gnocchi with mushroom as our entrees. For dessert, we had the olive cake and tiramisu. Everthing was delicious. We will definitely be returning for another visit soon.

Had an amazing time back at Rosalie. We were so impressed with brunch, we had to go back for dinner. Every single menu items tasted super fresh, incredibly flavorful; but still overall light. I hate that post pasta feeling of a heavy pasta with equally heavy ingredients and sauce. We tried two completely different pastas and both were great. Also had a refreshing salad and perfectly made pistachio gelato and Budino. Of the two we definitely preferred the budino. Will definitely be going back and taking friends and family along.

Went for lunch. Everything was delicious, the service was perfect and the ambiance was lovely. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. Our table had the beet salad, the mushroom gnocci and spaghetti with crab/shrimp, salad with bronzino and the pizza. All were excellent. Friend raved about the bronzino salad. The pasta dishes are a standout and the portions are just right. This is not a Magiannos with gigantic portions of basic pasta. The pasta dishes here are special, akin to what you would experience in Italy. Lucky to have such a place in the burbs.

We have enjoyed the Wayne Hotel restaurant experience on their porch for many years. This was our first dining with Rosalie. It was a very nice time.
- the wine selection was not familiar but the server recommendations were excellent
- all of the entrees were excellent
- dessert and cappuccino capped off the dinner

Recommend for special occasion , fine dining, or special guests seeking to enjoy one of the best in Wayne

Lovely design, and packed even on a Wednesday. But the menu was fussily written and hard to decipher, and the prices were a bit high. Flavors were good, though. I would save this place for a special occasion instead of a weeknight dinner. Staff was lovely, but the service was a tad slow. I think it was because they were so busy.
