A bit of a time capsule- in a good way. Great ambiance. The staff couldn’t make you feel more welcome or taken care of. Everyone was on point. Food is very good - but not remarkable. I definitely recommend the experience. I will go back for sure.

The welcoming atmosphere is so nice when you arrive until you leave. The staff is very accommodating. Great restaurant for good food and for being able to hear one another. Service is excellent.

I’m from Chicago and found Rossini’s in September. I was back this week and it will be my go-to spot whenever I’m in NYC. The staff is exceptional as is the ambiance.

First time visiting, and I would go back. Good selection of dishes, service was fast, and the environment was very good for conversation. A bit pricey, but it's New York. The staff tended to hover a few feet from our table, which was at times intrusive (they had conversations going about things that did not involve us), but that's not a huge problem.

Went here based on good reviews here and Yelp, and it was open on Sunday night. Overall unremarkable. Food was mediocre - fish overcooked, bolognese flavor-free and dried pork chops. Chicken was decent. Salads were swimming in dressing and clams were overly breaded. Service was nice but harried. Not bad but too many other options to return.

What a joy! Rossini’s is a classic. Old school Italian at it’s best and a level of service that makes you feel like a member of the family as soon as you walk in the door.

This was our first trip to NYC and Rossini’s was a recommendation from a family member. It was a fantastic dining experience from the very beginning. We were seated right away at a small table that was not very comfortable for me- I asked to be moved to a different table and they accommodated my request immediately with no hesitation. Service from all the staff was amazing, dinner was outstanding and the live opera singing was beautiful. We can’t wait to come back to NYC and visit Rossini’s again. Highly recommend!!

Old school doesn’t do them justice, just old. Veal tasted like 8 lemons were squeezed on it. Baked clams had a mysterious seasoning that I haven’t tasted in the 500 other times I’ve ordered baked clams. Menu is dated, poorly prepared and lost and that goes for the decor as well. The servers couldn’t be nicer though.

Ate here twice while we were in NYC. Squash flowers filled with cheese as a special appetizer was excellent. Eggplant appetizer was also great. Had the veal, shrimps and spaghetti carbonara - all were superb. Drinks and wine are pricey at $ 18 each but the food is worth it. The restaurant always seems busy with locals and tourists.

In my opinion this is one of the best and friendly Italian restaurants in New York City, with white tablecloth service and excellent food. I have been visiting this restaurant for 20 years and even coming back this evening after six year hiatus living out of town, it is still fabulous. This is not a red sauce to it, this is a real superb Restaurant with Northern Italian gastronomy.

This was our last dinner in New York and perhaps it was the best. The service was terrific, the food delicious: it felt like we were being treated as a little bit special. We loved it.

Love this restaurant. Food is excellent and service is superb. The only thing was the dessert (apple crumb) cake out cold/frozen. But they fixed it no problem. Definitely for a special night. Expensive but worth it. Piano player is very good as well and adds to the old school romantic vibe

Favoluso!!! From the moment we entered the door to the very end of our meal! The service was friendly and attentive to details. They start everyone off with bruschetta, fresh bread, crackers, butter and pesto olive oil. Then we enjoyed three specials of the evening: one starter salad and two entrees. Full of flavor and cooked to perfection. Would recommend this as a staple dining spot of mid-Manhattan. Salute!

Rossini's is fine dinning the way it used to be; the room is luxurious, the food is excellent and the service is always first class. Check it out on a Saturday night when they have the opera singers singing your favorite requests but make sure to have a reservation especially as we close to the holiday season!
