We had a reservation for 7:15 and we were not seated until 8PM. They overbooked and our experience with OpenTable reservations is that if they have the time slot open, we hardly ever have to wait. The owner is a musician and plays and sings throughout the evening. He is very nice but very loud for such a small space. The food was authentic Italian, home-made to order and excellent. We don’t mind fine dining prices but feel that our time is valuable and having made the reservation should allow us to be seated within 15 minutes of our reservation, the same amount of time they allow for lateness. The decor and authentic Italian ambiance was enjoyable.

We just moved from CA and missed the great Italian food we were used to. I wanted to surprise my daughter on Valentines Day so I chose to try Rossini Trattoria Gastronomica. I’m sooo happy we did! As soon as we walked in we were greeted by who I think was the owner, she was a beautiful authentic Italian woman. Not sure if it was Her husband that was singing but he was awesome! He ended up being our server and was so nice and professional! Then we got our food and it was SO GOOD! Everything was cooked to perfection and the filet was soo tender and tasty! We will definitely be returning! Ambiance was fun and friendly and we even met a nice couple from RD Island at the next table over. All around had a wonderful time!

A true gem in the middle of Charlotte County. Chef Dario Leo takes pride in the kitchen, and comes up with some inspired creations. We especially like the monthly tasting menus with wine pairings. The dining room is managed by Maurice Lomonaco, an outstanding tenor singer/songwriter who serenades guests during dinner.

The atmosphere was Awesome along with the owners greeting us at the table.
The food is some of the best Italian I have ever had. Outstanding!
But, the singing and and playing table side by the owner was a great treat that was enjoyed by all.
We can’t wait to come back and try another dish. However, there were so many we wanted to try.
I wish they had a location in Cincinnati.
Thanks again for a great evening!

We went to dinner at Rossini Trattoria on recommendation of a friend. The food was excellent. The service impeccable. The price was high. The noise level unbearable. 4 of us at the table had the same complaint about noise. Impossible to have a conversation even when Maurice (whose voice is beautiful) was not singing. He does not need the microphone. The next night at La Rocca Italian the food was comparable to Rossini but at about 1/2 the price.

Birthday dinner with my husband and three friends who had never previously been to Rossini. All loved it - friendly atmosphere, delicious food, great service and special song as requested. It may be small but Rossini never disappoints.

We were delighted to find this warm and inviting Italian restaurant near the movie theater in Port Charlotte. At the top of the list of its attractions are the proprietors, a husband and wife team, who preside over the space, exuding hospitality and joie de vivre, even singing in a beautiful tenor accompanied by guitar. The food is excellent and the ambience lovely. We look forward to returning!

Great Italian food. Nice people. Go and experience it instead of the chains, like OG n such. You pay for quality w/o the heartburn. This is not for the value minded. Thanks Maurice!. Cheers.

This is a well kept secret that needs to get out. Staff are very pleasant and friendly and make you feel very welcome. While the menu is somewhat limited there is something for everyone. The tenor singing occasionally throughout our meal was awesome and very tastefully done. The food was excellent and served hot. Rossini's is Fantastico.

Amazing find on our vacation! This is a small, independently owned restaurant that you must try. No fake American-Italian food here - this is delicious, authentic Italian, freshly made. Mauricio and his team were welcoming, personable, and made us feel right at home. And the food! Outstanding. You can tell they’re passionate about what they serve. We had the eggplant parmigiana and shrimp with eggplant couscous and both were a wonderfully perfect blend of flavors and spices. Excellent wine list to accompany the food, and the tiramisu is not to be missed! The fact that Mauricio then sat down and played guitar and sang several songs to entertain the diners really sealed this as our favorite Florida restaurant. Bravo!
