Food was amazing, reasonably priced. Waiter took 15 mins to arrive first time and never checked back except to deliver our meal. We ordered dessert via the busser.
wonderful food. dining area small with basic interior. the food made up for this hands down!
Pros - Food
Cons - Service was slow, inattentive, and disorganized. The sad thing is I don’t think it was our servers fault, he was nice and friendly but the restaurant was clearly understaffed. We had a 7:30 reservation and showed up exactly at 7:30 however we stood at the door for almost TEN minutes before we finally had to flag someone down to be seated. After being seated it took another 10 minutes to even get someone to take our drink order. We ordered our food at the same time to avoid an additional wait as did the table next to us who had walked in when we did, however despite this they received their entrees before we even received our simple appetizers!!
Overall the service will most likely keep us from coming back unless we hear from management which is sad because the food was good.
The food was absolutely delicious, and you are given very large portions for the price. It's also very nice inside and has a homey feel. The only negative is that the service was extremely slow. It seemed there was only one waiter for the whole room.
My team was in town and they wanted to try a local restaurant. I’m new in town and. Wanted to try a local place too. Rosemarino did not disappoint! Absolutely delicious, great service, fresh pasta, we can’t say enough good things about it and i can walk here!
Good value as well You don’t have to spend a lot to get excellent, homemade Italian food
Food is great and is a good value. The portion sizes were large so we took the leftovers home and had them the next day.
Staff is really friendly too and really care about their customers.
My only objection was the noise level because there were several customers there with KIDS and they were a little rowdy.
We love the place and will return soon
Very good Italian food, priced fairly, generous portions. I recommend a reservation because this is a small place.
This was our first, but definitely not last, visit to Rosemarino's. We dined with two other couples and were wowed by the wine selections; the bread, served with delicately tasting olive oil; the homemade pastas; the veal dishes and the incredibly sized shrimp that were perfectly cooked. Rosemarino's is a gem in Del Ray, as we discovered and many already knew, judging by the packed house. The noise level is very high, so don't go expecting to have deep conversation, but do go for some memorable Italian dishes. Oh, and I recommend you consider taking Uber or Lift because parking is VERY hard to find.
The group we were next to was extremely loud and understand that nothing could’ve been done but it was quite annoying. We had to flag the server down quite a few times but they were very helpful and nice when needed. Food was amazing. Will for sure return again.
Enjoyed the food which was authentic and well prepared. Very noisy party and guests being allowed to walk around the restaurant and talk between table. Probably would benefit from some improved decor/modernizing.
This place is amazing and we will be back.
Attentive staff with great sense of humor appropriately done.
Wine selection was good and enjoyed the dessert. Had roomy seating and comfortable ambience.
We sat out side, the flies were swarming due to the dumpsters in back.
Our food was cold when served.
Very disappointing evening.
Delicious as usual! Fantastic Italian cuisine every time, service beyond compare.
A hole in the wall, unassuming, hearty Italian restaurant. The best one at the price and will definitely return again!
We love this place! Truly the best Italian food in the area. Service is friendly and efficient. They have one of the largest patios in the area. Decent wine list! highly recommend!
Rosemarino always a restaurant to go to for good food.
We have been customers since they opened and the service and quality have gotten worse.
On a Fathers Day Sunday evening the were understaffed with only one server and a busboy who did his best to help out. Our table was located directly next to an Uber Eats / Door Dash pickup station and we had to endure a steady stream of driver coming and going. Having their pickup station in the main dining room is not a good idea.
After the initial glass of wine we ordered was served, no one stopped by to ask if we would like another. I don’t blame the waitress who did her best in a situation where management should have had more help on duty.
Always delicious. Great price for a bottle of wine.
Amazing food. We ate outside on a perfect evening. Great service and friendly wait staff.
Wonderful dining experience, food and value. The service was outstanding from start to finish. I highly recommend the mixed seafood with spaghetti in white wine and garlic sauce.
Great food and service and accommodation!
Favorite neighborhood gem. Authentic and international mate. Food is great, atmosphere is wonderful, serve is superb! Especially loved the tiramisu treat for my daughter’s birthday.
Very tasty food with a very Italian authenticity. Best Italian in Alexandria!
A nice cozy place. The food is very tasty, and the staff is great. They took care of everything you could possibly want. Very attentive! Highly recommend you try this place!
The food was better than we expected. The quality and taste of it seemed more fitting for a more expensive, fancier Italian joint. The service was excellent too. This was our first time at Rosemarino d’Italia and we will be back for sure!
Always a plea Soto eat at Rosemarino.
Good food at a reasonable price. The service was very good.
Bruschetta was disgusting...not fresh tomatoes. It as like squeezed dried tomatoes on lousy bread..no flavor. The cannolis were tasteless and just ricotta cheese. The place was empty on a Saturday night. Chardonnay by the glass was disappointing..sweet..not oaky. Would not return!
Rosemarino d'Italia is a small, cozy and casual restaurant. We really enjoyed our food. The menu is extensive so we plan to go back again to try some of the other dishes.
Love this place. Amazing food and great service.
It was a great experience and the second time there this week. Delicious! Good service and very friendly, polite staff! Highly recommended and as an Italian the authenticity of the food and homemade pasta is comparable.
We love this restaurant. The service is excellent and the food is always delicious. However, this time there was a party of 14, who spoke so loud, we had to shout to be heard in our party of four. Not the restaurant’s fault, but not an especially fun time. We will go back, but will ask to be seated in a less crowded part of the dining room.
This is our favorite local Italian spot. All the dishes are delicious, service is great and it reminds us of Italian restaurants in New York where we grew up.
An outstanding neighborhood hole-in-the-wall Italian place where everything is a delight. She had the spaghetti and meatballs, I had linguine with sausage and peppers. We were treated like regulars though it was our first meal there. It won't be our last!
When i booked the reservation, i asked for a nice table since it was for our anniversary celebration. They paid attention! After our meal, they surprised us with a lovely dessert with the script "Happy Anniversary!" Very nice, personal touch. Great service.
This restaurant needs a redo of their decor. It would also be nice if they had a liquor license to serve hard liquor.
But the food is yummy old school Italian and worth every penny.
Small place, but great food! Will visit again next time we are here.
Great little restaurant - inside an house with a homey feel. Food is pretty good and a good value. Service could be a bit better, though.
A Christmas Eve visit to our neighborhood favorite-- delivering as always, good Italian American food. Extra busy on this night, and the service was attentive as usual, plus the prix fixe four course special was lovely!
