The food was delicious
The food is absolutely amazing and the staff so friendly and courteous. We always ask for Will as he remembers what I drink and what I like to eat so he can recommend different dishes. If you like eggplant, it is mouth-watering and the veal and peas is the absolute best!!
Wonderful as usual
We love Rosalina's meatballs - the best! Everything has always been good, but once I discovered the meatballs, I find it hard to eat anything else.
We had dinner at Rosalina’s before going to PPAC. The antipasto was plenty for two people and was excellent. I had the roasted Brussels sprouts appetizer as my main course and it was fabulous and so large a portion that I couldn’t finish it! My wife had the swordfish and loved it. The wine choices were great...we had the Nebbiolo. Staff were friendly and helpful.
I liked my experience at Rosalina - a bit more cheerful than some of the restaurants in the neighborhood. It was also buzzier than New Rivers, but not too noisy.
Waitress though a temp, was more responsive and genuinely helpful and the food was good. Also it was a bit casual - not a top notch place: there was a tv over the bar…
Great food and service. Love the fact that the waiters are very aware that we need to finish eating in time for a PPAC show.
We always love going to Rosalina when we visit our daughter in Providence. Outstanding service and very consistent food!
Always great. We are regular customers.
It gets cold when the door is opened
While we have walked by this restaurant many times on our way to PPAC and Trinity Rep, we finally decided to make a reservation. We enjoy "Mom & Pop" establishments and this little gem in the middle of Providence did not disappoint. The menu and drink selections offer an array of both traditional and unique pairings that we cannot wait to go back and sample. A highly recommended destination for all who visit or live in RI!!
Had an early pre-show dinner here. Other diners' comments about the way the tables are packed in are quite accurate. However since the regular tables were already filled up, we were seated at one of the semi-circular tables near the door, which worked out fine.
Started with the eggplant parm appetizer. Wow. Best I have ever had. We split it between the two of us but could have had one each and been done for the meal. Our server said this dish is what they are noted for in local food events. I can see why this is.
For entrees we had the salmon piccata special and the gamberetti pasta (can't recall the name of the latter). Salmon was very enjoyable, served with gnocchi and cherry tomatoes, though there was a LOT of gnocchi and it was a bit heavy. The pasta dish was excellent, with a nice spicy kick and shrimp perfectly cooked.
We were stuffed after having had the appetizer and entrees, so we took a tiramisu away to eat later. It was excellent also.
Prices were very reasonable and service was outstanding.
We chose Rosalie's upon the recommendation of a friend. We were very happy with everything. The food was great. The service was friendly and efficient. The location was absolutely perfect as we were going to an event at the Dunk.
Tables Are to close to each other, food was ok ! Staff is very over worked but are waiter did try his best !
I would not recommend this place for any kind of special occasion more of after work or dinner before you go out to the bars or club place...
Every city should have a Rosalina - great menu - delicious food, interesting wine selections, homey yet festive atmosphere - service was warm but professional, knowledgeable - no rushing - excellent in every way
We had a wonderful birthday dinner celebration and will sure to be back! Loved the Broccoli Rabi Ceasar!!!
Excellent food, service was very good. Will be back again.
This was my second time eating here, the food was delicious! We were upset that the tables were way too close together, definitely took away from our night with couples very close on both sides of us.
So I will start off by saying the food here was amazing, but we had a large party and specifically made a reservation a head of time to make sure we had a table. The whole party got there on time but there was no table ready for us. We had to wait almost 35min for our table to be ready. We had kids in the party and it was horrible having to wait. When we were finally seated the service was slow and they didn’t even try to makeup for the long wait. When the food finally arrived it was delicious. Great portion size and very fresh.
Overpriced for what you get. Food was bland. Service was great. Not my favorite since moving here.
We had a wonderful meal prior to catching a play at Trinity. Very convenient and we were expeditiously served with our time constraints, which we had earlier informed our server. The food was delicious - I had the grilled swordfish. He had a pasta and sausage combo which was great. He would have ordered the sea bass but it required a bit more time than what we had available. Highly recommend and will definitely return.
Very good food and service...love the convenience to PPAC.
If you like the neighboring tables inches from yours, this your place! Will Not go back.
Great restaurant before PPAC theatre.
Went 6:30 on a Saturday night that had a PPAC event at 8. I was not going to the event but was looking for a nice night out with my wife. As I have since read in other reviews they jam the guests in like sardines when they are busy. My table was in that tight spot with 6" on either side of me. This is so close that the woman sitting next to me continually would be hitting my elbow as she ate and drank. If I had moved to avoid her elbow I would be elbowing the woman to my right as I was eating and drinking. I literally had 2 women sitting closer to me than my own wife. Conversation was extremely difficult as you would imagine especially since woman on my left talked non stop at a decent volume. I would have had a more comfortable date at McDonald's. The food and service was excellent but that does not compensate for the uncomfortable atmosphere. Note To Owner: Is the extra profit worth angry customers who will never return?
I did not like getting a greek salad with no lettuce. Tables are a bit too tight. They need to give up one table or find a way to put more space between patrons. A little too cozy with strangers. Other than that great location, good food and great valet!
Amazing food, great cocktails and the best waitress! Kiley was extremely nice and knew the menu incredibly well. Love dining at Rosalina. We Will definitely be back!
It was ok. We had dined when it first opened and it was outstanding. Came back again and it was ok. Seemed like they mailed it in.
Tables so close together people could not get in and out without physically moving the table. Too loud and difficult to focus on my own conversation when people sitting and talking so close on either side. Please consider removing one two top to allow for better atmosphere
We were absolutely astounded by the service we received from our waiter, Fabiolo. Could not have asked for a better dining experience. Loved talking to Fabi and learning about his family and his deep knowledge of Italian cuisine. Swordfish steak was super solid, squid ink pasta was tasty but could have packed some more flavor in. Fabiolo still was the best waiter we have ever had in any dining experience!!! Give that man a raise!!
Excellent value durn restaurant week! Fresh food with generous portions. Great place for before a game or show.
Fantastic dinner and service.The swordfish was cooked perfectly. Refreshing chilled calamari appetizer was outstanding. Great wine list !!
Great food, great atmosphere! One of our favorites
Amazing food and service! We go back again and again. Our new favorite spot!
Dinner was outstanding service was equally outstanding a little drafty though at this time of year sitting near the door other than that we can't wait to go back for the eggplant appetizer. I would give them five stars and recommend Rosalina's to everybody!
Food was excellent! Large portions for restaurant week menu were impressive. Even with reservation there was a little bit of a wait but the food was worth it.
Wonderful food and the staff was very accommodating knowing we had a 9:00 game ! While noise level is very high, it is a positive buzz!
