The Rossi Kitchen & Bar
grilled / basil pesto / carrot ginger purée / chive oil
garlic white wine sauce / lemon & thyme / ciabatta
Lamb chop lollipops were cooked perfectly with a beautiful presentation. They melted in your mouth. The service was top notch. We felt accommodated by several of the staff even the COO of the restaurant group!
The Rossi continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in the Short North. A great happy hour, delicious food, and excellent service!
Best muscles, pizza, and customer service in Columbus!
We love Rossi so that is why we chose to go for my birthday. The food was fantastic, but the service was awful. He never came back to check on us. Never offered us dessert which we wanted to order. Initially it took him about 10 minutes to even come over to our table. It was one of the worst service experiences we’ve had as far as service.
Outstanding food, service, and ambiance.
Went for Brunch so not very crowded hence the quiet - can't speak to dinner. Staff was great, very accommodating and help with menu selections. Great Bloody Mary, breakfast Pizza, and breakfast sandwich for my wife and I. We will go back
We were seated in the small side room where it’s all 2 and 4 tops … and then there was a large table of 8. The smaller tables all looked like date nights. And the large party was so loud and obnoxious it was difficult for anyone to hear at any of the other tables. It was not a relaxing evening at all trying to hear over that table.
The food and cocktails were great. Service was meh. Our empty appetizer with our appetizer plates and dirty silverware sat in the middle of the table as we ate our entrees. I finally had to get up and move it to an open table because our server wasn’t around to take it.
There are so many other on point restaurant destinations in the area. Don’t know that I’ll be rushing back.
It was our first time there. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the drinks, and the food. All were top quality. Or server was attentive and accurate.
First time there, sat at a high top in the bar which was great. Food was excellent, the staff was very friendly. We will go back.
The Rossi is so good, they never disappoint. Had the lamb lollipops and they were delicious.
We were a little disappointed that there was no “chef special” that was on the menu but what we ordered was all very good! The value was great even though the service was ok. We will definitely be back because all three of us were very satisfied with our meal and appetizer.
Always great service at the Rossi!
The food and drinks were great, servers were nice just a little slow at times.
Great brunch selections that didn't disappoint.
Service needs much improvement, not friendly at all. Drinks seemed water down. Food was good
Excellent service and creative food! We sat at the bar and really enjoyed ourselves!
We had not been to The Rossi in a while, and we were so pleased with the food and excellent service. The pork tenderloin during Restaurant Week was fabulous. We'll be back soon!
Everything was perfect!
The Rossi is our favorite place for mussels and pizza. Might sound like an odd combination but great food is great food. Their customer service is also the best. They always have our favorite wine ready to go and are very accommodating for special requests. Absolutely one of our favorites in Columbus!
Very friendly staff, service was amazing and food was perfect!
Great happy hour. Food was great!
Great Italian, good portioned food and good cocktails. Would recommend.
Eggs shells in my eggs. Had to ask waitress multiple times for my butter. Could barely hear my friend talking. Vibe is cool but doesn’t seem worth the money in my opinion.
very underrated, food was great and you get a large amount for your money
Food was under seasoned but the cocktails were superb. Bar staff was much more enjoyable than my server.
We came her for our Anniversary, We had a few apps
Pork tenderloin and frites
Zeppoles ( donuts with ricotta) with powdered sugar and the BEST chocolate sauce ever. Fondue was good but not exceptional.
Excellent atmosphere. Awesome happy hour
Excellent Service!!! Excellent value for happy hour. Highly recommend
Love The Rossi! One of my favorite date spots!
Great place to eat. We sat in the bar and had a great meal. Will definitely go back.
Feels like a West Village restaurant. Cozy, friendly. Big serves of wine!!
Great place, great food, super friendly service. Was not as busy as I expected. Had a wonderful time. Will go back for sure....
Great service! Food and drinks were phenomenal. I definitely plan to go again
We started with two appetizers and, though the brussels sprouts were delicious, honey, the meatballs were the best we EVER had! :)
The service was great, and the entrees were all excellent, too. We had a nice table by the window and enjoyed our meal in a safe and pleasant environment.
My boyfriend and I went for a date and had a great time!! The calamari is out of this world. I had the chicken sandwich - and loved it! My boyfriend got the burger and said he couldn’t get recommend it enough.
It’s a great Short North spot for dinner and drinks! We were told the kitchen was short staffed and so we’d have to order everything up front because they were closing early (which we did not mind). They were so gracious about it and comped part of the meal, which I thought was very savvy and not expected. Our meal was so delicious and we practically licked our plates clean. Even popular menu items that we order at pretty much any restaurant we go to (like calamari) had a unique take on it that was really tasty. It felt like a spot that can either be very casual or a bit dressy, depending on your occasion. The vibe is dimly lit and kinda moody and we really enjoyed the 70’s playlist. It’s also quite reasonably priced. If you’re looking for a relaxed spot with a creative take on classic dishes in the Short North, I would recommend considering The Rossi.
I loved my experience at the Rossi. The staff were so polite and made the experience enjoyable. I will be come again!
First, to our satisfaction, they really did COVID social distancing well. The only negative at all was that the music overhead was just a little too loud and I felt that I had to talk louder. Great service, delicious food and of course, great friends for company!
Great food and service
All around great first time experience. We look forward to a return visit.
Server was very clearly busy and short with us.
Also, it’s 2021. Stop placing the bill in front of the man at the table!!
Always friendly service, easy to reserve a table, and great food. I always enjoy the two pizzas on the happy hour menu. This is a great spot to bring out of town guests who want to experience the Short North!
