    Midweek lunch. Very good food across the board - pastas, meats, seafood all delish. Excellent service, friendly and efficient. The main room was full, so was a bit noisy at times.

    I love this place one of the best northern Italian restaurants in NYC. Service and food is outstanding. I have been a repeat customer for the last 15 years. The food is consistence and the staff excellent. The owner is always there to greet you a lost art in the restaurant business! Rossini's a top restaurant year after year.

    I’ve had the pleasure of going to Rossinis for over 20 years. The food is still fantastic and the service even better. We moved to Florida six years ago and now go infrequently but they still know us when we come in. And treat us like royalty. A very special place!

    Four of us and we all had different entrees. Tasted them all. All very good. I always order sea bass because I should eat fish but I don’t generally care for fish. They know how to make it so even I like it. My fav dessert there is tiramisu.

    Had an early dinner on Easter Sunday. Service was attentive by professional tuxedoed waiters, most of whom seemed to be from Italy. All of the dishes tried were excellent including baked clams, beet salad, veal francese, branzino, and tiramisu. All of the cocktails were $18 - a fair price and well-made; and all of the wines by the glass were also $18 - which is high for the fairly ordinary wines offered. Stick with the few Italian wine choices. Noise level was moderately high despite the two tier dining room. Nice feature was a talented live pianist playing variations on old standards. For a semi-formal, high end restaurant, the paintings in the dining room should be better. Would definitely suggest trying this place for the food and Murray Hill location.

    In these days of high inflation and post-Covid dining and entertainment choices, it's so refreshing to visit an old favorite like Rossini's. The food is delicious - the way you remembered it pre-Covid. Italian restaurants are the favorite of New York City, but it's obvious that many have cut corners - not Rossini's. This was one meal that was outstanding from start to finish and we can't wait to visit again.

    Very enjoyable evening. Nice music from a pianist and 2 opera singers. Party of 4. Nice cocktails. We shared 1 dozen fresh oysters and an order of spaghetti carbonara for our appetizers. Entrees were 2 orders of chicken Rossini, shrimp in champagne sauce & shrimp Fra diavlo. Shared cheesecake & tartufo. Everything was fresh & tasty. Old school done right. Will definitely go back again.

    Our first visit to this neighborhood restaurant and it was spectacular. The food was delicious (striped bass in champagne sauce and gnocchi bolognese). The wines by the glass satisfied sophisticated palettes, and the desserts were delicious. The opera singers were a delight and really enhanced our enjoyment of the dining experience. Waiter was attentive and we never felt rushed.
