    This WaS our favorite Italian restaurant that we always brought family and friends to when they visit us in Florida. I found out they changed ownership in June. The food quality was terrible with the new ownership and we will not be back. They changed the recipe for the lobster ravioli, the veal scallopine was not pounded thin, and the spaghetti carbonara had not flavor and very little sauce. The Ceasar salad was something we could get at the grocery store and had had very little dressing on it. Sorry, but you lost our business.

    Extremely disappointed. Very slow service. We had to remind the server about our bottle of wine and then remind her about our salads. The entrees arrived an hour and a half after being seated. The chicken parm was okay but the pork entree was inedible- cold and ver fatty. Usually the owners/managers are very present, but not this night. Really bad which is surprising for this restaurant. Maybe new staff or management?

    Don’t let the exterior fool you. This place is authentic Italian. Great food and flavors, beer and wine only. Service was a bit slow, but it was lots of new staff. Look forward to returning and hoping the service picks up. Staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Will definitely be back.

    The food in this part of Florida is the worst food I’ve had in my whole life and I’ve been to many cities and countries around the world. I can see why this place has high ratings because the people coming here have standards that are very low. We ordered the artichoke spinach dip. It looked like the Tostitos brand with a layer of thick cheese on top that was Hardly melted served with stale bread. We also got a caprese salad which was the best thing we ordered. My mom got the bolognese and I got the salmon. They were both awful. Neither of us finished our plates and practically ran out of the restaurant. My step father got the veal and he said he liked it - but for context he only likes bland food, I did not try it. The bill was $250. If you are from an area of the world where there is actually good food, just save your money and buy quality ingredients and cook at home. If you aren’t the picky type, this may be your place!

    Our first visit to this unassuming restaurant but not our last! Food was surprisingly great. One of our tests of any Italian restaurant is their calamari. This is probably the best we've had in this state! Very tender, crisp and came out hot! Bruschetta was simple with chopped tomato, mozzarella, arugula but quite lovely. My husband had the fish special of black grouper, mashed potatoes and asparagus with a burre blanc...wonderfully cooked and tasted amazing. I had the lobster ravioli which was good. Thought the tiramisu was pricey and just OK. Excellent service!

    We had wine, appetizer( calamari best we have ever had) salads, Veal ( we would have lick plate if we could), dessert ( to die for and cappuccinos. Everything was perfection. Service was awesome and knowledgeable. We are already planning our next visit. My husband and I are both chefs so we are pretty picky, this exceeded all our expectations.

    My wife and I asked a Realtor for restaurant recommendations, while we were down FL house-hunting - without hesitation he said Rossini's. We tried it that night and in the 4 weeks of house hunting we returned once a week. Every dish was excellent, the desserts phenomenal, the wait staff very attentive and FUN!

    It was delicious food! We will be back! Waiter was attentive and friendly. Octopus appetizer was good, but had smoked taste, which is not my preferred taste. Eggplant parm was delicious, Osso busco over risotto was amazing. Side of pasta in meat sauce was tasty too! Tiramisu dessert was perfect, not overly sweet or coffee taste, nice and light. Cappuccino were great, regular coffee was strong, which is rare to find good regular coffee in restaurants in our experience.

    Don’t judge a book by its cover! Located adjacent to pt Charlotte town center, this authentic Italian restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. Plenty of parking some outdoor dining option, large bar, impeccable service, food bellissimo! If you want Italian American you may not be content with the Italian menu but if your looking for authentic look no further!

    Not impressed with the food. Disappointed that the owners changed, missed the presence and ambiance of previous owners. Menu changed wasn’t pleased with the veal dish. Hated the burrata salad with anchovies. Will not be returning to Rossini’s again.
