    Delicious food and wonderful service -- friendly and helpful. It was perfect for meeting a business colleague and friend. We never felt rushed, and the quiet atmosphere was conducive to having conversation.

    Rossini’s is very old-school and rather elegant. The food was delicious, particularly the pasta with pesto and the Caesar salad, and quite good calamari casserole. Service mostly attentive and polite (they did divide our shared salad, but forgot to divide the pasta, and were slow on drinks). We liked the idea that Rossini’s has live music (piano) on weekends, but forgot that they add opera-type singers on Saturdays. While we love opera and classic standard songs of the type they offered, the two singers were simply too loud. That raised the sounds of conversation and music to a general noise level that was uncomfortably loud for us.

    This was our first time at Rossini's and we're glad we chose it, after investigating about 15 alternatives for a Valentine's Day meal. We walked past a small bar area, which could be any average bar in Manhattan, and were then ushered into an expansive, attractive dining room. We got an early reservation (5:15pm), and Rossini's was practically empty when we walked in, but packed when we left. The food was fresh and well-prepared, service professional and spot-on, the ambiance relaxing. The bread basket has seen better days, but never mind. We would gladly return.

    We’d give a higher rating but the wait staff did not notice we had not gotten our meal (or drink, BTW). Lots of apologies and free desserts. Great food when it came! We would return but hope server attentiveness will improve.

    Had a very enjoyable dinner at Rossini's last night. It was a catch-up dinner with a friend, and we couldn't have picked a better spot. Have usually dined there for lunch and have enjoyed the healthy bustle of the business lunch crowd. But on this Monday night the vibe was quiet and had a neighborhood resident crowd - which was perfect for us. The food and service were outstanding -- as has always been my experience over the years at Rossini's. A long list of specials combined with the wonderful "regular" menu - the tastes of which are anything but regular. They are more like delightful! A big thank you to the high-caliber staff - who are so friendly and attentive. Their warm greetings and service always make us feel like friends returning to their beautiful home. Thanks for another great meal within your special, classic restaurant!

    Rossini's has not skipped a beat in the nearly 50 years of its existence. Gracious and classy owner Pino makes certain everything is in tune with the diner's needs. The ambiance is great, service impeccable, and the food fantastic! You cannot miss at Rossini's as it just chugs along with excellence that has been their calling card for so many years.

    Baked Clams, Cesar Salad, eggplant rolatini , seafood papardele, and pork Cho with Broccoli Rabe all were delicious so no complaints there. A couple of quirky things…very stingy on the pats of butter which were served with a moderate amount bread,flatbread and breadsticks. Also, I ordered a $180 bottle of brunello vintage 2017 and was brought a 2019 with no offer of a price reduction. I pointed out the incorrect date but did not fuss about the price which would have been awkward given the setting. Hoping the wine menu is updated to reflect the actual inventory on hand.
