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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
