Food and service were fantastic as usual. Sat outside on the porch which is usually lovely, but the couple next to us was talking so loudly that my husband couldn’t hear a word I said. This really detracted from the experience. But no fault of Rosa’s!

First time at Rosa Bianca. Special birthday dinner. Service was excellent and attentive. Our server Reggie was especially nice. Appetizers were excellent. Everyone enjoyed then. Arancini was very good, but slightly undercooked. Otherwise, no complaints. We all ordered different entrees and everyone enjoyed their choices. Will definitely go back.

Squid ink gnocchi was great! My husband loves the chicken cutlet with arugula.
I am missing their arugula, pistachio, shaved parmesan with lemon vinaigrette salad and hoping it comes back to the menu soon!
buratta app is always delish!

calamari fritti was enormous in portion. did not ike the iced cold chopped tomato with it...needs a warm or hot marinara sauce

Never been to any victorian home style restaurant. It was a nice experience, the atmosphere was very cool. Service was nice too! I had never heard about the Gnocchi with blueberry sauce! It was a very unique dish and I tried it. It was so delicious. Eggplant was awesome too!!!!! The food was really worth the money and Above all, you get a royal and kind of rich experience at this place!

Genuinely disappointed , took friends here for restaurant week and they were not impressed.Although the restaurant is cute and quaint, it was SO INCREDIBLY LOUD we literally could not have a conversation. This was our 4th visit here, it’s very local to us, but our first impression was not great so we didn’t revisit for several years. We had 2 great meals between these visits so decided to go for restaurant week. We did not order from the special menu, as nothing spectacular was offered. Two items on the regular menu were already not available, and the entrees we ended up with were just OK- ravioli, gnocchi, eggplant and pasta with seafood. It all sounded quite exotic on the menu, but was fairly standard. Additionally, it was a fairly pricey meal for a BYOB, and unfortunately later that evening one of us had an upset stomach. Not a good experience, very sad to say.

Waitress Kate was a sweetheart. Where we were located in the alcove with no cloth to take up all the sound in the room that seemed to revibrate and echo. All 4 of us were in the huh, what, pardon me mode. The table for two was so close that the lady that sat down really looked uncomfortable with the proximity and moved. She could have easily joined us it was so close.
Food was good. The cold potato salad was just way too many potatoes and needs something to take the place of 1/2 of the potatoes. The steak which I ordered medium to well was very very medium but the flavor was good. My wifes scallops could have had a couple more scallops and 1/2 of the risotto. She will be eating risotto for 2-3 meals.
I never questioned the other couple but they didnt express any complaints during dinner.
My wife and I were embarrassed about the gift card we were given and in turn turned it in on the meal. But graciously you decided to honor it and it was a wedding anniversary. That in itself will bring us back but we wont bother you again with a gift card. I can see where parking is a problem as we were the last that could fit at 6pm.

This restaurant reminds me of some of the Italian restaurants in the city. It's a house setting so the place was full and it was a bit loud. However, that being said, the food was excellent and service was too -- I will definitely go back again. Another plus BYOB!

I will start by saying this, Marvin, our server was amazing; he was personable and attentive to our every need!
The food was equally amazing, starting with the tender and delicious grilled octopus served with roasted chick peas and arugula that didn’t need to be swimming in oil to have delicious flavor. The meatballs were spectacular as were the homemade cavatelli topped with fresh sea scallops, and the perfectly prepared, to order, steamed salmon in parchment!

We’ve been to Rosa Bianca many times and consider it to be one of our favorite spots. The service this time was mediocre at best and the food was less than it has been. This will not prevent us from going again, however, we were disappointed this time around.

Really busy night, hot in the front room. It took 1:45 minutes for our meal for 2 people. Waiter apologized for the long wait. They made a mistake and gave me the smaller portion of spaghetti and I asked for dinner portion, but it was so long of a wait I just went with it.

They are using a curtain to try and keep it cool in the front room but its actually keeping the hot air in that area. As soon as I opened the curtain the colder air came into the room and helped to circulate the air. They did not realize that the other rooms are colder and they are a higher elevation, about 4 steps up to them so the cold air in those rooms actually floats down to the lowest part ( physics) the front room.

Another great meal with my wife. This was about our 8th dinner in the past two months. Every meal has been excellent. Appetizers, pastas, entrees, desserts: the lot. Consistent quality has made Rosa Bianca our go-to dinner destination. It doesn’t hurt that it’s 5 minutes away in a cozy renovated Victorian in Yardley.
