    Excellent meal at a small independent restaurant. You can tell the team really cares and puts their best efforts toward service. The lasagna, Cesar salad and minestrone soup were excellent. There were some minor misses with other dishes like the calamari starter and their pesto is creamy but still good. Would return again. Great dessert options also and family friendly.

    Our past experience was so amazing that we made a five hour drive to eat there again, only to find it wasn’t worth it. The dressing on the steak salad was overwhelmingly tart and doesn’t go well, the amount of steak for that price was less than minimal, plus it was cold and undercooked. The pork chop my husband ordered had the flavor of old oil. While the waiter had a great personality, he never came to check on us for us to tell him of our dissatisfaction with our meals, so we paid for food we didn’t like or finish, and gave him a mandated 20% tip for not checking on us. Two thumbs down.

    It’s a nice enough place, and the food was good. However, my husband tried to order a rye as a cocktail. Two servers later and we are told they don’t have rye. He asks for scotch, “Dewars or similar.” They said yes. We were shocked to find the billed us for a $20 high end single malt! A bit of a stretch for a diner-style place. It literally cost more than the steak salad I had. SMH…

    Out-of-town visitors and 1st time at Rosini's - largely based on reviews. Our entrees (Alfredo pasta with chicken & Pesto stuffed Salmon) came with a side salad that we upgraded to Caesar ($2) and Mini-Wedge ($4) - meals and salads - excellent and worth extra $. Ambiance adequate and seemed like a local clientele enjoying their meals. Minor gripes - waiter seemed too rushed: it shouldn't take >5 minutes to get fresh ground pepper on salads; at less than halfway through meal, we weren't ready to be asked for to-go boxes and I resent suggested tip amounts that include the state sales tax in the total.

    Rosine’s is consistently a good place for exceptional food and excellent service. It’s one of those “go to” places, whether for a casual breakfast or lunch, or a dinner night out. You can’t go wrong here. They are well known for their cakes as well.

    I loved the lasagna and beef minestrone ("Triple - D" reviewed) but my wife's pork chop dinner arrived warm-to-cool -- even after they replaced the veggies. Flavor was good, but she likes her food hot! Her side salad was very nice and fresh -- they shred the carrot well enough to "melt" into the other greens. And, of course, the dessert case is a wonder!

    Our server was very helpful and on point. The food, however, was not as high-quality as I expected. The lasagna was cold, and the cheese wasn’t melted. Steak sandwich was OK. The best thing we had was the club sandwich and the drinks. I would try it again, though in the future.
