    Even though I made reservations, a table wasn’t reserved. My husband & I ended up sitting at a bar height table that was directly behind one of the entrance doors outside. There was a couple sitting adjacent to us that were very loud so it liked the ambiance. My husband’s pizza was burnt & too salty. The pasta of my spaghetti bolognese was undercooked & also salty. We are not returning. Really disappointed in our second visit here.

    This is our go to spot for date nights and EXCELLENT Italian homemade food. Well known for their homemade lasagna, they offer other flavorful Italian meals such as their fresh fish, stuffed peppers, roasted eggplant, ravioli, just to name a few. If you haven’t checked out the spot, I highly recommend you do and make a reservation!

    We used to enjoy going here, sadly no more. Perhaps they are another victim of the staffing shortage and the kitchen reflects it. Service was good. Caesar salad is a completely bland disappointment, with the exception of the shaved Parmesan... get a Caesar salad kit at Vons, it has far more flavor! Sausage Lentil soup, oily and mediocre. A can of Progresso has more flavor and depth. Pasta Vongole was a salty disappointment. Nearly inedible. Homemade Gnocchi with Pancetta, wild mushrooms and broccolini. Waaay too much salt and I already like my food too salty. Sadly the dried gnocchi from Trader Joe's has better texture and flavor. The moral is I would rather cook a simple Italian meal at home, and save the $95 on dinner for 2. Just not worth it anymore. I hope this place returns to its former glory, but until then, no thanks.

    I had the stuffed eggplant which was delicious! I shared the pear salad with my husband snd he had spaghetti and meatballs. The servings are always ample . The service was very good. With a 5:30 reservation we are always asked if we want to get our order in early to avoid a longer wait time. I appreciate this as many times we have skipped lunch snd are hungry! Rosina’s is the best Italian restaurant in the Carmel Valley, 4sRanch, Santaluz and RB area. I do wish they’d get seat cushions for outdoor chairs!

    Family operated with son or mother giving you what the specials are they made that day. Excellent Italian food. I love their Warm Spinach Salad w/ Calamari and the Saltimbocca. My wife’s favorite is Lasagna.

    We were greeted immediately and quickly offered a table to our liking. The staff followed-up soon and went over and above to accommodate us. The chef/owner stopped by twice to describe the specials and answer any questions about the menu. The food was excellent as was the service! Nice outdoor and indoor dining spaces.

    We had a bad experience at Rosina’s. The servers would come to our next table and completely ignore us. I requested for a server twice and yet they continued to avoid and ignore us. Don’t know if it was racism or we didn’t look rich enough. Definitely never going back to Rosina’s again. They were definitely not under staffed. All the servers wanted to serve the table next to us. We were finally & reluctantly served after waiting over 30-40 minutes.

    A family owned and operated restaurant located across from a neighborhood park, this hidden gem has many regulars and guests from the surrounding residences. The food is first rate with substantial portions and excellent attentive service. The ambience is friendly and gracious (we always eat outside on the large shaded patio). Good for families and visiting pets, Rossina's has something for everybody.

    We had a wonderful meal at Rosina's. The chef came around and explained his special which we ordered. It was pasta with mushrooms. The dish was excellent. This restaurant is a gem with good food, reasonable prices, and a garden setting.

    Tried this out while friends were visiting and we were all pleasantly surprised. A true gem. We sat out in the patio in the early evening. Waiter was great about moving the umbrella to keep the sun out of our eyes. Only negative as far as ambience was a screaming child t tables over. I just don't understand why people take toddlers to nice restaurants. Food was very good, generous portions. My wife and I split an entree and the portion was plenty for both of us. Caesar salad was nothing unusual. We passed on desert. We were very happy with the experience and will be back!

    The food was ok … we ware waiting for it forever .. waiter kept coming and assuring us is coming soon ( not his fault.. kitchen give out meals).. Finally when it came it was just mine and my husbands dinner and our daughter had to wait another few minutes for hers … It came out pretty much cold .. Same with the dessert … we finally said we’re tired waiting for it and waiter just said ok and brought us check right away without saying sorry or trying recompense… It was Mother’s Day .. and they made it pretty average .. I’ve expected more … not coming back..!!!!

    I was really excited to try this restaurant. I ordered the chicken parmigiana. It was rubbery and overcooked. I was so disappointed! I ate two bites and told the server. All she said was, “I can take it off the bill.” Our reservation was early at 5:30pm. It wasn’t busy and they forgot our Diet Coke and never asked me if I was wanted another glass of wine. Since Covid, service has been subpar.
