My reservation was at 11am. They did not seat us until 11:30. After they finally sat us they informed us that it was not a brunch, when the restaurant called to confirm the day before I said yes 11 o’clock Mother’s Day brunch we will be there. You would think the girl would have said no it’s not a brunch, we are only serving dinner. Who even takes reservations at 11am for dinner? It ruined my family’s Mother’s Day. I will never go back here again. Beyond horrible customer service.

The food was outstanding. We had veal and chicken piccata. Both were better than in the past. Definitely going back soon to try some other entrees. New cook does a great job and salads and vegetables are now included. GREAT JOB.

Everything was great except the people at the bar were very loud. They left before our meal was served so it was fine after that. The place is lovely and the waitress and bartender were extremely nice. It was a good night for us.

My Bolognese was delicious, among the best I've ever tasted, however, I did have to deal with some acid reflux later that night. The others also loved their meals. I would gladly suffer the a.r. again for the Bolognese.

Dined there for the first time and have mixed reviews. Some of the dishes were very good (crabcake appetizer) while some of the other dishes were good. Service is very, very, very slow.
One big plus is their wine prices. They have many excellent wines at very reasonable prices.
Worth another visit.

I've been to Rosaria many times and have found the food and service has gotten much better. They recently changed their menu and have more choices and very reasonable prices. Highly recommend Rosaria as the restaurant itself is one of the prettier restaurants North of Boston.

I hadn't been there in a number of years. At that time the food was good but pricey. BUT a friend of mine went there recently for the first time with her husband, who is particular, and they both loved it. She has been there a couple of times now. So she discovered it and she & I went. The food was soooooo delicious and plentiful. We both had Salmon she had the special Picata and I had the Salmon on the menu. A good size salad comes with each entree and the meal it self was a good size portion. They have a new chef and have lowered their prices to be more reasonable. We live up the street and it's pretty close for us. I'm so excited to have tried Rosaria's again. I plan to tell all my friends and pass the word around. It is a true find!!!!!

We went for early seating for New Years Eve. Limited menu but the food was great and the staff was very nice. We go usually on Valentines Day and special occasions and it is worth it for a local place rather than dealing with Boston crowds

So thrilled to have found Mike, your head chef, at Rosaria’s.

We will be “regulars” at least for our special celebrations, if not more regular regulars! The trip from Ipswich was pretty quick & easy!

Looking forward to your wine dinner later this month!

Great night out - but a little too noisy, noisier than past visits - required raising voices to talk across a table for 4

Has to be the WORST restaurant we ever ate at!!!!! Went on Thanksgiving with out mum! I was incredibly embarrassed!!!! Service was absolutely HORRIBLE! So slow we had to go to the bar ourselves not once, but twice and pay for drinks that took an hour to get to us! (after the fact) ... I will NEVER suggest this horror show to anyone! Never mind the drink fiasco, but the dinner came out freezing cold. Who wants cold turkey on an already freezing day on Thanksgiving? Never mind the $300 bill attached for 3 people!

I love Rosaria's new menu. There are so many choices now and all reasonably priced. Our waitress, Jessica P. is the BEST. I didn't want pasta with my dish so they gladly gave me vegetables. The food (chicken Marsala) was delicious. We will be back over and over again. Thank you to Jessica and Angela for making my "cancer" anniversary so special.

My Hubby and I haven't been to Rosario in a while and we were very surprised by the menu choices and good value. Salads accompanied the entree and were a good size. Both my Hubby and I were overall very happy with our meal, service and ambiance.

A few misses - cleaning the table between course, bringing a stand for the ice bucket - not leaving the bucket on our table.

Though it was a busy Saturday night, the staff was delightful, calm, and efficient and set the tone for a leisurely meal. Two of our party of four ordered one of the several specials offered that night: pan-seared shrimp and scallops with risotto and grilled vegetables which was delicious and the presentation very appealing. Two others ordered from the large menu and their meals were also perfect....baked haddock for one and chicken piccata for the other. From salad to dessert, everything surpassed our expectations. We will definitely return!

Food was excellent and portion were great. When the salad came, I only ate the cherry tomatoes & cucumbers plus one baby spinach. Maybe offer just baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers with salad dressing. The grilled chicken was very tasted & sweet potatoes were awesome. The four of us took home the rest of our dinners home. Thank-you so much & we will be back again.
