Ribeye requested rare came out medium well. The most expensive thing on the menu should be prepared with the most care and precision.

Casual dinner - warm enough to eat outside which was a nice change. We ordered entree salads with salmon which were very good - salmon was done perfectly. Steak frites order by other in the party was also very good.

I've been there many times with Family and Colleagues. Great menu (margherita pizza is unique!), and well balanced menu (different choices). Wines are good, with reasonable prices. Service is excellent.

We had an outstanding dinner in a great atmosphere. Food, presentation, and service were excellent. We went out for our Valentine's dinner on a weekend night. It was a great choice.

Service could have been better. Food was good. I never expect great service on Valentine's Day since it is always so busy.

Second time here. This place is fantastic. The food is the best that we have had, and we have been to some really good places, from hole-in -the-wall to 5 star. The wait staff is knowleable and efficient and the drinks were interesting. We will return!

My wife and had a great meal at Rosso this past Saturday. We have been there often and it is one of our all-time favorite spots. The restaurant itself is comfortable and has agreat layout and décor. Our food was excellent. My wife had the shrimp scampi and I had the pasta di Bolognese. Both dishes were excellent and the servings were plentiful. We enjoyed a couple of glasses of the house Chianti. The wine list provides a very good variety, as well. The service was very good even though the restaurant was full, A very nice evening!!

One of the best dining experiences in Columbia. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. The veal saltimbocca was very good as was the scallop risotto. Dessert was a mascarpone cheesecake which was light and tasty.

Great dinner as usual. Love the homemade ravioli. Unusual combination of ingredients but they worked together.

Appetizers and salads were excellent. The wine was also excellent. My wife states her entre' was delicious. My entre' was disappointing. The pork chop was "gristly" so much so that it was difficult to cut. The service was excellent: attentive but not intrusive. Even though the restaurant was busy we did not feel rushed. On the whole it was a very enjoyable dining experience.

2nd time in a row service has been bad. The waiter was not attentive. There weren’t that many people in the restaurant so it’s really inexcusable. Not sure I’ll go back.

Waiter needs more training. Kitchen, per waiter, lost our order. Not up to par with Rosso standards. Food ok.

On a cold Tuesday night, arriving early, we felt like VIP guests. Beautifully lit, quiet space with the full attention of our two servers . We enjoyed a tender, tasty plate of fried calamari to share. The salmon entree and the steak frites were delicious. The tiramisu was superb!
