    The manager, Donna, and the bartender, J.P. aka Jenni, made the evening great. They both went above and beyond to make my date night with my wife memorable. I will definitely go to this restaurant again based on Donna and J.P.'s service. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart.

    Food was great, as was the service. Unfortunately, the music was so loud we had to ask our server twice to lower it, which they did. And the table behind us was very loud and got louder the more they drank. We had to take matters into our own hands as the manager was waiting for the situation to get out of hand (his words) before he would do anything.

    My girlfriend and I ate at Rosso for Valentine’s Day. The atmosphere and service was great, but the food was lacking. Every dish we had was on the colder/lukewarm side. Worst of all, my girlfriend’s dish which was chicken, was undercooked/raw and bleeding when she cut into it. They made it right by getting her a new plate and taking it off the bill but overall i can’t recommend Rosso.

    Sub-par food, for the price. Pasta did not present as handmade. Beet salad was mostly field greens; really had to dig for small pieces of beets. Service was good, but did have to wait awhile for someone to acknowledge us.

Short rib tagliatelle and gnocchi were brought excellent, fresh and hot! The ambiance was perfect, and it is a great location for dinner downtown before an event. We will definitely be back!

    This was so disappointing…ridiculous that at a 5 pm reservation, they’d be out of a signature dish. Small pasta servings. Serving Parmesan in a little jar? Even an Olive Garden can do better than that.

    We ordered caprese appetizer and found the cheese to be quite firm. The pesto was delicious on the caprese, but the focaccia was over salted and bit over toasted. Pasta entrees were delicious- perfectly Al dente. Pasta with mushrooms & sausage just superb and short rib fettuccine delicious. Panna cotta was too thick. We would return and try more pastas and pizzas.

    I really loved the menu, it offers a good selection of starters and salads beyond the usual Italian classics. The pizza was good as expected, the Tagliata steak as simple as good as it is served in Italy. The service is definitely the weakest part of the restaurant. The two boys were going back and forth around our table without greeting us or neither asking for the drinks for at least 15 min, till I decided to personally call one of them. Despite he was trying to do a good job, he evidently had no idea what means working as server in US. I tried to give him an extra chance trying to have a conversation: he was absolutely inappropriate. It was my birthday… servers had no idea about it! There is a large selection of restaurants out there, and people are no longer looking for just good food when they decide to dine in. People want the experience and want be served by people who care about their job, otherwise they hardly come back!

    I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday. It did not disappoint! I had a pasta dish that was very good and she got salmon.

    As a huge foodie, one of my goals when trying out new restaurants in AZ is to hopefully find the best of... I was born and raised in NYC and as many know, some of the best foods from all culinary landscapes are found there. When choosing to try Rosso, I read all the reviews here, on Google and Tripadvisor. Decided not to dress up too much based on them and some images I saw. Upon entering, the staff greeted us with smiles and warmth. We passed the bar and then into the main dining space which is not huge but a good size. We had the most adorable server whose English was not the best but was excellent in all other ways and even helped me brush up on my Italian which was great. Super nice kid. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious and I am the biggest Italian food snob. We had the ‘Nduja Mussels as an appetizer and ordered grilled focaccia while devouring the mussels because they were so good, we could not waste that sauce! Our entrees were the Pork Chop Milanese which was perfectly pounded, seasoned, breaded, cooked and super tender. I had the Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe because I wanted to have something simple and very Italian. It was perfectly executed. The wine list was great too. I plan to return and try other dishes soon. The only thing I would suggest is that they open a fine dining location for Rosso because the food is way better than average. We should dress up for food like this! So go and thank me later!

    We were hoping for a quiet dinner in a nice restaurant and it felt more like a diner experience. After standing at the host stand for about 3-5 minutes where no one even acknowledged us the host came and mumbled something to us then took us to our table. No real welcome we are glad you’re here. We had never been here before. So at this pi t we are already not impressed. We were seated and our server came fairly promptly. She was sweet but it’s evident fairly quickly that the staff is t trained for customer service. The food was very good. Served hot. But the overall feel of the place is very average. Decorations are ok. We won’t go back. There is very good Italian food in this city where you feel welcomed and appreciated for dining at the restaurant.

    The appetizers, entrees, cocktails, and Rosso house beer were very good. The cannoli was very stale and bland. Our waitress hardley checked on us and never came back to fill our water once.

    Heard good things about this place, but it didn’t live up to the hype in my opinion. Food was just okay, pacing poor with entrees coming out before we finished our salads. For the price and atmosphere, prefer Forno 301 as a fair comparison and with much better food.

    The drinks were amazing, the service was mediocre and the beet salad had more citrus than beets, I was hoping for better.

    Great little Italian restaurant. Close to airport, the eggplant appetizer was delicious ! Pasta dishes were good. Didn’t try the desserts, ate all my pasta.

Next time, maybe save a little room for dessert — we think you'll love them just as much. Looking forward to your next visit! The Rosso Italian Team
