Really pleased with our experience and would highly recommend! Food was good, service was outstanding, and live piano created a really nice ambiance.
Warm, relaxing, comfortable Italian restaurant with top of the line service and delicious food.
One of the best Italian restaurants in Manhattan. We look forward to eating there regularly. The menu is wonderful and they also take requests.
First time here and it was amazing !
Will return . Food service 2 thumbs way up
Wonderful restaurant with great service and friendly atmosphere.
Excellent food. Next time sit in front section. I wish bar area was open. This is a neighborhood gem. Really!!!
I have been a regular customer here for many years. It is my go to place . The owner and staff make me feel welcome. I am so happy they have survived through the pandemic . Certainly not without hard work and sacrifice.
Exceptional food and extra friendly service.
Always attentive staff, and always solid, tasty, enjoyable food.
Was looking for a classic NYC Italian restaurant for dinner with my two sons who live in NYC. We got it!!! Great NYC service (we had a drink right away) and fantastic, authentic food. Great night!!
Rossini's never disappoints. The wait staff is friendly and courteous. The northern Italian food is delicious and the chef is fabulous! The restaurant area is spacious and very comfortable!
Had a late lunch at about 2:00 pm. The place was empty. Though we expressed to our server that we were on a short schedule to catch a train, he basically disappeared after bringing the menus and again after delivering our food. I had to go find him to take our orders and again after we were done to give us the check.
Thank you again for wonderful evening. It was great my girl and the servers singing HB to me.
The service is always wonderful. My spouse and I enjoy dining there. The food is delicious especially when they have the Branzino.
Great they are open again, Monday through Friday. Service is always standout, the food is always delicious++, and it arrives wonderfully hot every time we dine there! The waiters are dressed to a T, in Tuxedos I do believe.
One of the best Italian food so far
We booked for a 1:30 via OpenTable but the restaurant only opens at 3:00 PM. Yet the staff was very accommodating and let us in at 2:00. Service was great. Environment was very nice.
Had a very nice evening. Service was excellent and the food very good. Sat us in a very nice private booth.
Very good food! My wife and I really enjoyed it they even stayed open past closing to accommodate us. Thanks again
Very pleasant evening
Service was a little slow, but considering first night after they were closed for months and it was hitting capacity, it was understandable. The food was absolutely delicious I have never had a better Branzino oreganata anywhere. I would order it again and again. We have been there several times before and it's always been an excellent meal.
Wonderful birthday dinner. The restaurant knew how much I like Osso Bucco, and had it on the specials menu just for me. Incredibly attentive service, food and ambience. Highly recommend. Thank you, Rossini's, for being a Murray Hill staple for over 40 years!
Always good, fresh food, with interesting specials.
Lunch was wonderful, as always. Just can’t wait for the restaurant to reach the next level of occupancy.
Just can’t beat Rossini’s!
Had always wanted to go to this neighborhood favorite. It was terrific. I emailed them before reserving and asked about their safety precautions for eating indoors. They assured me they were up to date with local requirements for ventilation and spacing.
The food, the service and the ambiance were lovely. Can’t wait to return.
We were surprised to find indoor seating but happily the restaurant had proper social distancing with staff wearing masks throughout. I had a homemade pasta special with shrimp & artichokes. The shrimp could have been larger, but the dish was very tasty. My friend had pasta with clam sauce & was quite content. Everyone was gracious & they sent a complimentary slice of cake to celebrate my friend’s birthday. A nice touch.
It’s wonderful to have this “old world” gem back in the neighborhood. Very tranquil and professional. We missed you.
I was glad to see my favorite lunch spot re-open after 7 months with the same great staff and excellent food. Authentic options, well presented and always friendly and professional staff
Great to be home . An old friend
Rossini's is a very special place. The main dining room is charming, warm and inviting. The service is impeccable (friendly while being totally on top of every detail -- one never had a chance to get thirsty because your water glass is always full). The food is delicious. We were 3 and inclined to share one grilled octopus special appetizer. Our waiter suggested 2 for the 3 of us which was a bit much for us as we tend to be small eaters but it was very yummy and served on a salad with small greens, olives, tomato. Shrimp Oreganata and Veal Francese main courses were excellent as was the eggplant Melanzane antipasta that I chose as my main course. The bread is dangerously good and the bruchetta that was served along with the bread to whet the appetite did just that. A little wine, a good cup of coffee, and one is definitely in a good place.
Great environment and delicious food. Excellent music!
Love this restaurant....classy and great service and food!!
Top notch northern Italian menu, excellent service and wine list. Don't miss this hidden gem on 38th.
Great food. Great service. Relaxing dinner in a quiet setting with a piano player that helps you unwind and relax. Upscale neighborhood dining at it’s finest.
Excellent service and even better food!
Great authentic Italian restaurant. Great service, great meal
My only complaint was that the waiting staff were just functional, no warmth or personality at all. I hope you will give them feedback that the mechanical service detracts from a very nice place with delicious food.
Warm, energetic atmosphere. On the formal rather than the casual side. Food is outstanding! They really know how to do veal!
