Very enjoyable dinner. Good food and service, but, skip dessert. It cost almost as much as an entree.

This is a place to go if you crave a traditional dining experience that exudes unpretentious yet sophisticated charm. Food is generous and authentic. It was a Saturday evening, and Rossini’s was buzzing with life and joy. Piano and traditional vocals by extraordinarily talented performers. A supremely enjoyable evening.

It is dated but the food is always good...service is always good...noise level generally low.

Better for lunch than dinner...if image is not important go there now

A really wonderful place. Food was amazing, great ambience, but they frown on bringing your coat into the dining room. Not everyone wants to check a his/her coat. Otherwise the place is great. Amazing food.

Sixth visit in 4 years - food always superb, service attentive, timing spot on. A must visit every trip to NYC - an MLB favorite for visiting teams! Staff pleasant - always nice to see same personnel year after year. Strongly recommend the Carbonara and the Fettuccini - their pastas are all above average. Looking forward to next visit!

We love this old-style Northern Italian place in the Murray Hill neighborhood. Convenient to hotels. Service is warm and caring, food always delicious. I always feel as though I’ve just stepped out of Moonstruck when I’m at Rossini’s.

The service was unbelievable, so attentive from the moment we walked in to the time we collected our coats to leave. The only thing I would say was the noise level was rather high and I think this was probably due to the low ceilings, it was packed the evening we where there and everyone was talking at their tables.

We started by having a drink at the bar. Maryann, after serving our drinks, made sure we got a nice table and were seated promptly when we were ready.


The restaurant was crowded for a Wednesday (restaurant week) but that made no difference in the quality of our food and the hands on service we received.


We'll be back.
