Rosso Trattoria Italia Ratings and Reviews
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!!
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.
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!
Service tonight was slow. It took well over an hour after we ordered to get our meals. Drink refills were very slow as well. Given the time it took to get our food we probably would have ordered one more round of drinks before it got there. Food was good. We heard a server tell another nearby table they had more take-out orders than usual so the kitchen was backed up. While I’m known to order take out, I believe an advanced scheduled reservation should probably take precedence.
My wife’s food was superb. I am not an Italian food lover so I had a steak. Very expensive and very very mediocre. We will try again as she really liked what the chef put together for her. My idea of great Italian rolls on 4 rubber tires, rolls super fast and costs a bunch. Italian food lovers will love this place.
We were delighted! It was so quiet we could actually talk to each other (what a concept!). Our wait person, Kyle, was efficient, knowledgeable, personable, and a delight. Loved the red walls. A little on the expensive side, but fine for a special occasion. We will definitely be back.
This is one of my favorite restaurants, we have been here for birthdays in the past, but this time, it was for Christmas Eve dinner. It was an incredible menu, and we had great service. The wine and cocktails are out of this world. The cocktail, Santa's helper made of Kahlua was sweet and delicious. Definitely recommended and a great place for dinner.
The problem started when we arrived and were seated. The person that sat us told me although we had a 6:15 reservation that they had someone coming in at 8 or maybe 8:30 for that table. Never in my life have I had that happen.
The food is always good but this time my son had the Flant steak and it was close to cold are barely warm. My potato’s under the New York strip were also cold. The food was good outside that. The flavors were good and my steak was cooked just right. The wife and my sons girl friends food was good.
I've been to Rosso quite a few times and thoroughly enjoyed it; however, this last visit was a big disappointment. The service was extremely poor. Two people in our party did not get their food until the other six people were almost finished with their meals. The wait staff and manager did not care and did not offer any explanation. The foood was good once we finally got it. Several people in our group had dishes containing shrimp, but there weren't many shrimp in them. We'll give Rosso another chance one day to redeem themselves.
Kyle was our server and he was so very attentive. The food was absolutely delicious as always. My husband was continuing to talk about his delicious lampchops last night over our dinner at home. Thank you for maintaining such high quality dining at Rosso!!! It is always fabulous.
