Rosalina offers good takes on Italian classics with many good seasonal specials. The service seems very ticket driven, as both times I have dined here the service was subpar compared to other restaurants in the area (including their sister restaurant Kleos).
Awesome as always.
our food came out cool. it was not freshly made. the pasta was firm, and not light and fluffy. they did not make it fresh that night. it was rainy night and they had a lot of cancellations, so they must have cooked it earlier. they took it back and heated it in a micro and added sauce.
the last time we went - we had a terrific meal. but not this visit.
Had dinner before PPAC show, food was great!
Rosalina's was fantastic! I have never been disappointed there, but since I've gone vegan, I was especially happy to find a vegan option on the menu. The Cauliflower Steak was to die for!
The pasta dish we all had was amazing, would definitely return.
From the moment we pulled up to when we returned from our concert, the service we received was excellent and our experience was pleasant. The valet was prompt and he shared that we could leave our car with him for both our meal and our concert, the maitre d' acknowledged our OpenTable reservation and seated us directly, our waitress likewise acknowledged us by name and inquired about the concert, and our dishes were served promptly to accommodate the concert start time.
Rosalina's was a pleasant experience and we'll be back.
Interesting Mediterranean-themed Italian. Fun atmosphere. Would go back
Restaurant was over the top fabulous ... went back on Saturday it was that great!!
Cold calamari salad was amazing !!!
Always top notch. Impeccable service. My favorite restaurant in Providence.
I have never had anything but a positive experience at Rosalina. Our waitress was very good and attentive and the food was delicious. I had reserved a table for 6 and two people backed out while we were sitting so when I told the waitress there was no issue which I appreciated. I highly recommend Rosalina!
Best sauce I ever had! Everything was delicious.
Our party of 5 had another fantastic evening at Rosalina. Every drink and dish was a taste experience, and we remain loyal and devoted fans.
Great food and nice alternative to going to Federal Hill! We had a great "Ladies Day" dinner after my daughters dance performance at Providence College.
Awesome food. Complimentary parking. Squid ink pasta is amazing!
I took my daughter before a PPAC show. We had gone to Kleo's and loved it, so decided to check out their first location. They brought warm bread to the table pretty quickly. I ordered the eggplant appetizer which was served in a cast iron crock. It was small, but plenty. My daughter ordered the gnocci, which i was told was not made on location unlike most of the other pastas. She loved it. We shared two sides - a cheesy cauliflower and two meatballs. The cauliflower was to DIE for. Definitely order it. I would eat it as a meal. The meatballs, though.... they are why I gave the food 4 and not 5 star. I am not sure what spice or herb they included, but I did not enjoy them. You usually measure an Italian restaurant by the meatball!!! But it was the weakest thing we tried. Overall, though, I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I am sure I'll be going back again. BTW, our waiter was great!
Great waiter, fun atmosphere food was excellent, fish plate seemed a little small, lamb was delicious sauce was light and flavorful.
What a great place, a little pricey but well worth it. We were a part of a party of 8 all had different meals and all were outstanding. It’s our go to restaurant
I enjoyed the last two times but this night no so much. They crammed us in so there was no private conversation at all. The bread was boring and tasteless and the olive oil and ricotta was blah. The dinner was average. We wanted to relax and have an after dinner drink or dessert but the seating was way too tight and uncomfortable so we went somewhere else.
The food was terrific.
Our server, young brunette, attitude could be improved. Acted like she was put out and her facial expressions any time you asked her for something was like we were bothering her. I noticed the other 2 servers who seemed much more pleasant in nature. We decided to leave after dinner with no dessert because she made us feel so unwelcomed.
But the ambiance and food was nice.
Great window booth-very attentive service!
Food and service were amazing! Tables are a bit close together. Will definitely be back.
Food, service, valet are all excellent. It’s a little loud, so not for an intimate dinner or even to catch up with friends. It’s hard to hear the person across the table from you. BUT the food is amazing.
Nice atmosphere but somewhat loud.
Server was very friendly and helpful.
Food was good but not the best I’ve had.
As always Rosalina’s went above and beyond food was excellent, and our waiter Will was on point one of the best waiters out there!!!
We came to the Rosalina by a recommendation that it’s an Italian chef restaurant - the food was very greasy and filled with sauces. There was a VERY loud group that the waiters couldn’t get a hold off since they were related to someone from the restaurant.
I’m sorry but it wasn’t a good experience.
Always awesome here. Friendly service and terrific food. Here on a Monday at 5. Quiet then but by 6:30 it's jammed. Make reservations!
They pack you in like sardines - never again. Worst experience.
We had a group of 7. They seated us at a round table which was very nice. Service was good. Food was good, but not outstanding.
I would have ranked it as outstanding but the hostess was unfriendly and unapologetic about seating us in the bar when we had a dinner reservation although I made it very clear I wasn’t happy with the seating. When a table opened up in the dining area, she also made no effort to offer a seating change. All that being said when I was persistent in asking for seating change, the food was excellent as was the service from our waitress.
This was our first time dining here. Great place for dinner. Atmosphere is comfortable. Menu is varied enough to please the masses. Waitstaff was attentive and friendly, but not overbearing. The food was well prepared and fresh. Cappuccino truffle for dessert was delicious - and just enough for us to share and still feel satisfied. Definitely worth a return visit!
Made reservation and was seated immediately. Service was outstanding and the food was very good. Not a large menu, but a good variety. The restaurant is not very big. Has a cozy feeling. Kind of dark though. Hard to read the menu. Needs a bit more lighting in my opinion.
Even though I had a reservation, they said there would be a 30 minute wait. The hostess was extremely rude. Even though we had a good server, the hostess put a damper on the evening. We came for a birthday, and we were seated by the bar/door, so there was a draft the whole night. We had to ask her to comp us something, and she was rude about it. She should’ve offered after the inconvenience - which is what any good hostess would’ve done.
Have been several times and have never been disappointed.
Great food and service. The tables were a bit to close for my comfort.
Everything was perfect! Great menu and so delicious!
Great food, server was great. Would do back again
We went for a birthday before a show at ppac we had a wonderful waiter who didn’t rush us at all and gave great recommendations.
food and service were great. one complaint is that the tables are too close together. We had to actually pull the table out to get around it.
