Rossini Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
This was our first time at this restaurant.
Our party of 4 was greeted well. Most of our party enjoyed the food however the meal was affected by very weak service especially as it was not very busy.
Water was not offered except when we asked and at least one person at the table had an empty glass, milk was not offered with tea and on one occasion we had to actually get up and find someone to get service after waiting for some time for someone to come by. It does not appear that this is usual based on other reviews however based on our experience we will not go back.
Took mom and my brother there for mom's birthday. I understand that this place is a place with a table cloth and I can't expect massive portions but a bit more food for the dollar would be great. Not super expensive but I just expect more food when I pay that kind of cash for a meal for 3 people.
Ive been to rossinis three times. And all visits with great service.On this occassion and the last, the food wasnt up to par with the price. My wife and i both had the chicken parmesian($25). Both were over cooked and dried out! Not worth the price and will not be returning!
We had the restaurant to ourselves. Server was courteous and pleasant. Food was great. I would certainly recommend this place again. We had the mussels and grill squid for apps. And also had the fish/seafood soup and spaghetti and veal meat balls for our entrées. All 4 dishes were delicious.
Excellent service , good ambiance (mid-summer quiet season). My husband ordered the polenta and the Aso Buko - both of which were fantastic. I had a Capresi salad that was mediocre and grilled shrimps with hand rolled pasta. At first our waiter told me there were 5-6 shrimps in the entree. He later came back and apologized and corrected himself - there were 2 shrimps cut into small pieces. Overall, the dish was tasty but the value wasn't there.
We haven't been to Rossini for quite some time but used to be regular customers from the time my husband and I met in 1975. We celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary on this visit and were pleased to be complemented with glasses of Asti Spumante and a nice little dessert.
We would be happy to come again.
Nothing special, nothing terrible. Just...meh. For the price it was underwhelming. Used to go to Rossini back in the late 1980's and this was a return visit for nostalgia's sake. Wouldn't return again. Escargot was a let down. Carpaccio covered in sauce (if it's good carpaccio you let it shine, you don't bury it). Caprese was so-so. Bruschetta was solid. Veal Ravioli was decent, Salmon was not.
This restaurant is a throwback to the past, rarely seen nowadays. White tablecloths, quiet atmosphere, northern Italian menu, without the frills. Everyone enjoyed their pasta, veal dishes. No surprises. Standard Italian fare done well. Nice service. For those who want a tried and true Italian meal.
I would recommend the antipasto and starters dishes such as bruschettas and grilled and fried calamari.
The pizzas are overall good, in particular the simple ones such as Margherita.
In terms of other main dishes, I would recommend the 'ossobuco with polenta', a great northern Italy specialty which is little known in Canada, but is delicious.
It was a relaxing Father's Day dinner until a big, loud family was seated next to us. We heard every word that was spoken (yelled) at that table. Despite that, the food was good and we had a quick dinner making it home in time for the round of 16 at the FIFA women's World Cup with Canada playing.
Rossinis is our go to restaurant for everything from special occasions to last minute weekday dinners. It is consistently good as far as old school Italian comfort food is concerned. The service is spectacular. There is always a return visit in store for our family.
We recently moved to the restaurant's neighbourhood and were looking for a place to dine regularly. We discovered Rossini last weekend and found what we were looking for. Excellent food, great ambience and best of all, the service. Alberto is a professional waiter that knows how to make make his guests feel special. Can't wait to go back!
Four of us went for dinner on a Saturday. The restaurant was relatively busy, but we were shown quickly to our reserved table. From thereon the service was quite brusque. Fortunately the quality of our pastas was more than adequate compensation for the inattentive wait staff. It would have been nice to have someone from the restaurant actually say goodbye and encourage us to return when we were leaving.
The food was very good and the portions were most adequate. The service was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back again....loved the fact that they have their own parking lot so trying to find a spot for the car is, hopefully, not going to be an issue.
Rossini's has been around for years but the food is still really good. Lovely appetizers and delious mains. If you like seafood, their fettuccine with seafood is full of mussels, clams, squid, shrimps and is done in a light tomatoe sauce, it's so good I finish it all. Chicken Parm, delious and a great portion size. Have been there 3 times in the last few months and have enjoyed every time .
We had a great dinner at Rossini's. Hadn't been there for a couple of years. The food was still as good as it was years ago. We sat in a quiet corner and there was a thumping noise all the time. We asked what it was and our waiter said it was the dishwasher. Not such a quiet corner. Overall our experience was good!
