We have been walking past Rosalina’s for years and finally decided to try it. All I can say is we wish we had started going years ago! The place is fantastic! It’s such a bustling friendly place and the food is great! The tables are close together so be prepared to be chummy with your fellow diners! Just gives you an opportunity to make new friends! It’s our new favorite place to go before shows at PPAC, Trinity or the Dunk or just a night out in Providence

Excellent service, food and atmosphere. Went to Trinity and was able to valet my car and pick it up after the show. Very tight fit in-between tables - close to the next party. Downside to a small restaurant. Overall - excellent and would highly recommend Rosalina!

We went here for a girls dinner for a bachelorette weekend. We LOVED it. Amazing staff! Amazing food! There wasn’t a single thing we ordered we didn’t love!

Great server, a little too al dente on my dish though my husbands pasta was perfect. They cram you in there...6” in between each table is not the optimal. Also, their table bread is a bummer. Nice touch with the fresh ricotta but I’d trade that for a better quality bread.

The food server was very friendly and efficient... maybe too efficient. We wanted to relax a bit between corses and we were zipped out of there in record time.

Wonderful spot for dinner before going to PPAC for a show. The food was delicious and our waiter did a fine job. We very much enjoyed our meals and will go back.

Service was attentive & knowledgable. Realized after another party was seated next to us that she forgot to inform us of the specials though (that night it was chicken & veal parm). Shared the salad with avocado which was SO good and the selection of tomatoes were perfect. I asked if they sold the dressing it was so enjoyable! Had the eggplant appetizer that was more than enough as an entree. Very hot as it's baked in a small cast iron dish. Delicious. Was tasty, but slightly salty for my palate. I don't recall what brand of Pinot Grigio I enjoyed, but it was very good. Was too full for dessert. Appreciated the art on the walls, large B&W images probably circa the 50s, that made me reminiscent of similar experiences & photographs with our family. Not a big place but we were there midweek on a very rainy night so it wasn't busy. Valet parking is convenient. We were going to the Strand to hear a concert after dinner and the Valet accommodated us by parking near a lot not very far from the Strand & giving us our keys & the cars location, so we didn't need to be concerned about finding other parking to go to the Strand :). Would HIGHLY recommend and we'll certainly return!

The only thing we didn't like was that the tables are too close together. We right on top of the people sitting next to us.

Food was delicious, service great, valet parking, but the table wobbled, and it was so loud (other patrons screaming), that I couldn’t have a conversation with my husband.

I have dined at Rosalina before and had a great experience. The food is delicious and the ambiance is intimate and cozy. Because of this I decided to bring my boyfriend here for his birthday. In my reservation I noted that we were dining there for a birthday. I wanted to leave instructions for the dessert I wanted to have brought out after dinner, but there dessert menu is not available online. I called the next day and made arrangements to have tiramisu brought out with a candle. When we arrived that Friday for the reservation, the hostess said she had a table for us but it would be "tight" and wanted to know if we preferred to sit at the bar. Obviously we did not because this was a special occasion, so we chose to sit at a very cramped table where we were basically dining with the two parties next to us. We had to move the table to one side or the other for us to even get in our out of the seats. The diners to our right were awful (not the restaurant's fault) and complained about everything, and we could hear every word because we were practically sharing a table with them. The food was good per usual, and the service was ok, but instead of bringing the dessert I had pre-ordered, the waitress asked if we wanted dessert and listed off the options. My boyfriend declined dessert (as I assumed he would since I was paying) and I had to convince him to share the tiramisu. It was brought out without a candle or any acknowledgement we were celebrating a birthday. Overall Rosalina is a nice little Italian restaurant (if you don't mind sitting really close to your fellow diners), but probably not a great place to celebrate a special occasion.

Food was great, service was very good. Biggest issue was the ventilation. I’m not sure if my eyes were too sensitive, although it’s never happened before, or what, but the smokiness of the resturant was almost unbearable. Ruined what was great food. They have an open kitchen which is usually fine for me, but it seemed like their ventilation was down or something because I couldn’t get away from the smoke. Still great food. Chicken Parm was amazing. The sausage and peppers were delicious. The Gnocchi dish with butter was good, but had a little too much butter. Would try again. Maybe it was just me or just an off night.

Everyone at the restaurant was wonderful. We had requested a quiet corner table when we made the reservation, and they accommodated us. The waiter service was outstanding. The food was excellent. It was an all-around great experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Rosalina’s. There were seven of us in our party but our server was attentive to all informative and extremely efficient.
We had an early reservation because we were attending an early concert in the City. Our server was aware and made sure we were not rushed yet finished in plenty of time to get to our concert.
A wonderful dining experience for sure!

It was a nice place, the atmosphere was nice, a little loud and the lighting to dark, big group was dining when we visited so we felt like may the kitchen was overwhelmed and that the food was rushed when finally servers. The server was great and friendly.
