    This is a very traditional Northern Italian eatery for anyone seeking a fine dining experience. And when I say anyone, I mean anyone over 50. Make that 60. Like us. Or our parents. There is live music on the weekends, and when we went this past Sat night there were a pair of opera singers performing arias and operatic show tunes in the dining room. They were excellent and the crowd loved them, but it also made it hard to hear one another speak across the table. Food was fab, though. Service impeccable. We will be back … maybe on a weeknight.

    We celebrated my 65th birthday dinner. I had a Caesar salad and the seafood pasta. My wife had the Branzino special. We shared Spumoni for dessert paired with cappuccinos. Excellent meal, excellent service and the piano player was great. I highly recommend this establishment!

    We dined at Rossini’s 31 years ago for the first time and were very impressed. We came back again and their food and service has not changed. Rossini’s food is outstanding, the attention their staff gives to each person is top shelf, making it an enjoyable dining experience. Pleasantly surprised on Saturday night, Rossini’s has two opera singers and a piano player perform throughout the evening. They sing beautifully, all different songs. They go to each table and greet everyone like they are family and ask what you would like to hear. We were there for our anniversary. They surprised us, came over to our table and sang Happy Anniversary when the waiters brought our dessert out. PS the Ricotta cheesecake was absolutely delicious! We will definitely be back with our family on a Saturday night.

    We had never been to Rossini's. I had been searching for a nice place to celebrate our daughter's birthday near the Morgan Library when I cam accross Rossini's. I had not read about the SAturday live music, so was surprised, but it was a fabulous evening. The servers were so courteous, the food was delicious.
