There are a few things I want to point out. This was our first time there, I made reservations for 8 pm. Our server was very nice however it seemed like she was the only server working the main floor. It was busy, she was also very busy. We had to wait for long periods while she made her rounds. Again, she was very nice and this may have just been 1 of those days that a server may have called out. The food was delicious. They have a different take on original dishes which was nice. They make their own desserts (we had the cheesecake) and it was very good. Their food is priced well. My only REAL gripe was that where we sat, the lighting was VERY dim to none. The candle on the table was not enough. Besides that, our experience there was very good and we will be returning again.

Very good dinner. The antipasta appetizer was one of the best I've tasted. It's nice that a salad is offered with each meal. Ingredients were fresh and had a nice light dressing.

Only recommending to try it because maybe I got an off night. Just went for the second time since we had a fairly good experience the first time we dined a couple months ago. Sorry to say I and my group were a tad disappointed. The food was very good though I noticed a few of the pasta dishes (dinner size) ordered were not that large for the price. I was close to questioning whether they gave me a half portion by mistake. However the big disappointment was the service....our party of 6 sat at 7:10 PM, waters and menus were out promptly minus two waters, told the specials at 7:25, order taken at 7:40, appetizers served 8:00, salads served 8:25, told at 8:35 that entrees will be right out, entrees came out at 8:45, had no desert, and got the check at 9:20. Told everything is cooked to order. Huh? I don't know of any the restaurants I frequent that don't cook your food to order. I usually like not to be rushed for dinner, but this was a tad to long. The restaurant was crowded. I just think the kitchen can't handle a full up restaurant. Also, the room to the left, which is a little tight for two groups of six, a table for four and two couples tables, was extremely loud.

Server was just ok, only downsized of the night. Food is delicious, always fresh and good portions but was disappointed in the service. Server seemed annoyed therefore wasn’t warm and friendly like most servers there but could have been a bad night for her. Would definitely recommend, food is great!

Unfortunately we did not have the greatest experience here after hearing some good things and reading good reviews. Firstly, we were seated next to a very drafty window on a cold night. The dishes were generally very bland with the caprese salad mozzarella being pretty hard for an advertised home made mozzarella. Also, the main dishes we ordered (lasagna and pollo milanese) were average at best.

This was my second time and it was just as good as the first. The calamari, salad, pasta special and dessert were all absolutely perfect. I live in NYC so I tend to be critical but the food was every bit as good as my favorite city restaurants, if not better. I will definitely be back soon. Highly recommend!!

After having gone there a couple of weeks ago and having a nice meal, last night changed my opinion of this restaurant. Overlooking the noise level, they had one waitress handling the main dining level. She did her best with 10 tables. Since when does pork medallions come as chunks of pork, this was a special dish and I had to request a steak knife to cut them. I will never go there again. A disappointment, for sure.

Our party of 4 enjoyed or first experience at Trattoria Rosa Bianca. Our server gave us a nice overview of the menu and let us know that they could accommodate any food allergies or preferences - gluten-free or whole wheat pasta, options for vegetarians and vegans. We shared the mozzarella, provolone and octopus appetizers. All were excellent! Everyone enjoyed their entrees, including the salmon, chicken Milanese, osso bucco and gluten-free pasta bolognese. As if that wasn’t enough, we even had dessert, which was definitely worth it - the flourless chocolate torte and carrot cake were amazing.

The only minor negatives - the room was very full and at certain points loud. And the busboy was too anxious to clear our dishes.

Phenomenal BYOB! We’ll be back soon.

Inventive cuisine based on old standards. Caesar salad w/a touch of ground brussel sprout in the dressing was seriously delicious. Pork tenderloin special with a light sauce that shared the palate with the pork. Dinner during the week provides a pleasant atmosphere where conversation is comfortable. Service was attentive, but not hovering.

The food and service were excellent. Pomodoro sauce was very very good. Autumn Vegetable soup was very good also. However, I ordered the eggplant and it was very good, but I didn't care for the skin on the eggplant. It would have been much better without it.

Everything was delightful. We were greeted immediately and taken to our table. Server came over right away. I ordered my steak rare and it was done perfectly! Only take away, the two couples in the same “room” as we were in, were extraordinarily loud and were arguing for the entire time we were there. Beyond that- it was a 10!!! We will be back!!! Thanks for a superior meal!!
