Authentic Italian at it's best! From the waiters, the food, the decor..........even the other guests! This place is what you'd expect when you go to an Italian restaurant in NYC

Our first visit and will definitely return.
A little pricey but everything about our experience was top notch.
The food was delicious with 5 stars + for the Melanzane Rippiene!
The Pollo Scarpariello was delightful as was the Veal Francese.
Wine is pricey but we were delighted with our Nebbiola wine.
The cheese cake was perfect .. . absolutely devine. Light, not too sweet, and delicately delicious.
Coffee was perfect.
The wait staff were courteous, professional and made us totally comfortable.
Our corner table was just perfect.
Can't wait to return.

Love Rossini's. The service is fantastic; the food is great and the atmosphere is lovely with piano player most days of the week.
Also love the bar in front room. My dad worked there for many a year when it was the Town House. Bar is set up exactly the same and always brings me memories when I go there.

Rossini's is a wonderful Italian restaurant. There is a formal air to the establishment, in part due to the wait staff in tuxedos, the live pianist in the background and the attention given to their place settings. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly throughout the night!

A good, quiet place to have a business lunch, thought I can't say I would be happy to spend my own money here. While the pasta was good, the Caesar salad was the smallest, tiredest-cheese $14 Caesar salad I've ever been served.

I had a Restaurant Week dinner. The food was very good. Had the salad, which was good and a reasonable size. My entree was the special pasta: veal ragu over fettuccine. Again a reasonable size; I was able to finish both the salad and the entree as well as dessert.

The veal ragu was good but not like any ragu I've had before. Had large pieces of veal and not a thick sauce. Again it was very good, just not what I expected.

I'd recommend Rossini's.

We were in town for just one night and staying at a nearby hotel. Needed a place that was good for kids and grown ups alike. We were not disappointed. Friendly greeting at the door and led to our table right away. Servers were kind and told us they could make anything for the kids. The food was very authentic tasting and the bruschetta an added bonus. Kids loved their spaghetti. Sad they were out of cannoli. Do not hesitate to come here. A bit pricey but hey, it’s NYC.

What did you expect from a family operated restaurant who has provided to the Murray Hill community, both residents and business's nothing but consistent good food.
Greeted always by a family member.
Back in the day it was Pio, now Raymond and Gerry, are carrying on with the family tradition.
Not complicated.
Good Food.
Staff as been there as long as I have been going there [since 1993].

We went to celebrate my mom’s 80th birthday. The service was wonderful, the staff friendly and accommodating. They were very knowledgeable on the food - we had some severe allergy issues. We will definitely go again when in town.

Very nice interior space and lively atmosphere. Food could be better. Prices are a bit high for what you get. A special salad the night we were there was $23. That is crazy. This is one of those places that depend on the expense account crowd during the week. The mixed drinks are not particularly well prepared. The bottom line is that it is OK, but no reason to draw you back for any special reason

We have moved to Florida, but we went for nostalgic reasons since this was one of our favorite local neighborhood gems. The service was terrible. These guys are arrogant and some really think they own the place they’ve been there so long and forgotten who the customer is. Also, maybe it’s like this everywhere in New York but $18 for a drink is outrageous. We were in shock and definitely won’t be back. No value. Not pleasant.

I have been coming here for business lunches for 13 years from 3 different office locations. The food is excellent, the team is great - treating you like family, and the ambiance is that of what you would expect in an old-world Italian restaurant. If I am going for great Italian and want my guests to be treated special, this is the place!
