We have been to the Trattoria Rosa Bianca 5 or 6 times in the last 6 months, and the food has always been very good. It's in a lovely old house and also has some tables outside on the wrap-around porch. The service was a bit off this time - it took over10 minutes to get highball glasses (it's a BYOB), even though the waiter brought water and then bread - but not enough to ruin the evening. We were with another couple and had fried artichokes, meatballs, 3 different pasta dishes, and pork tenderloin saltimbocca. We were all pleased. I'm always too full to try dessert here, so I can't comment on that, but I definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.

This restaurant is fast becoming one of my favorates. I have been coming here for over two years and enjoy the variety of the menu and specials. You can tell how hard the owners work at perfecting their craft. I will continue to recommend to my friends and neighbors about this local gem. Warren Uzialko

We visited during Restaurant Week in Yardley. The food was delicious as always but there were very few items to choose from on the special menu. We had a lovely private dining area yet our waiter was not as attentive as usual. Perhaps there were too few servers working that evening. Despite slow service the food was very tasty, as always.

The fig special was delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed the beet pasta and blueberry gnocchi - outstanding! My husband and I love trying new dishes and these to we look forward to having every summer! Hope they make the main menu as they are a staple dish. Loved the option of outdoor dining as well. Byob too!

Arrived at the restaurant on a Saturday night in August with reservations and was seated right away. I ordered the salmon with vegetables in parchment paper. It was absolutely delicious, the fish was moist and the veggies done to perfection. Other people in my party were extremely happy with their choices as well. A family style dinner salad (to share with the table) comes with the entrees. I also like the fact that it's a BYOB. For dessert I chose the warm rice pudding with fruit on top, it was ridiculously good! The best I have ever had!

Went for brunch with 7 people. Everything came out perfect. The crab, spinach, and tomato frittata was one of the best things I've eaten for brunch. And the salmon portion was also very generous and perfectly cooked.

Ever since opening a couple of years ago, the quality has been inconsistent. On the plus side, the pastas are decent. They are not the best ever, but generally better that other local options. The gnocchi with blueberries is quite good and a welcome change from the norm. The breads are very good (always an important sign of things to come in an Italian restaurant), including the mozzarella in carozza appetizer which is excellent. The house salad is well done and nicely understated. It comes with the meal family style. I personally wouldn't have ordered it, but I always end up having some because it is rather good. Other things are very variable. On this particular visit, the chicken scallopine was ok but somewhat dry. The spaghetti and scallops special, was ok except for the fact that the scallops were almost inedible with a weird iodine-like flavor and a rather rubbery consistency. Fortunately the sphagetti and cherry tomato sauce were very good, though not good enough to cover up the scallops (nothing would have been). The ambiance is quaint, the service, ok. For the price, the food needs to be consistently better. There are other local dining options that aren't necessarily better, but are a little less expensive. My take on Rosa Bianca is that it is lost between trying to be fine dining and trying to cater to a broader average palate.

It was a first time try for my wife and me and the building/location/ambiance seemed to be just right for a small town Italian restaurant. The greet staff and waiter were extremely friendly and thoughtful. The food on the other hand left us a bit underwhelmed. The salads were fine and fried calamari were excellent. We ordered multiple appetizers and half servings of pastas in order to sample as many of the dishes as we could. The meatball (Popetti) was very bland in taste and a bit hard, the artichokes were good, the ziti with sausage tasted very good - the sausage was wonderful - but was soaked in too much oil and the pappardelle suffered from a very ordinary tasting ragu. We were told the pastas were homemade and they were very fresh. However, the sauce preparations for those dishes just didn't measure up.

We're likely to go back and try the entrees before making a final evaluation but until we do, we won't be recommending the restaurant to anyone else.

Went on a rainy Monday and had attentive service and a delicious meal. Started with calamari and arancine. The two apps with the salad could have been a meal. The lasagna may have been the best I've ever had and the house made pasta in the trofie was excellent. Looking forward to returning!

Four of us ate there and we all thought the food was excellent, as well as the service. I had as an appetizer, arancine (which is a rice ball stuffed with meat, absolutely delicious). For entrées, I had steamed salmon in parchment, wonderful. The others had a dish we had never heard of it. It was called trofie. a type of pasta. They all loved this dish. I tried it, and it was also great. The desserts are homemade and they are all very, very good. Large vases of fresh tulips are throughout the restaurant. So pleasing to the eye. This restaurant has a lot of ambiance, and we will definitely return.

We recently moved into the neighborhood and thought we'd give this restaurant a try.
First let me say the wait staff was very good and very nice.
My husband started with caprese salad. This dish wasn't bad but the mozzarella was very hard. Not soft and silky like good mozzarella should be.
We both ordered crab with squid ink pasta. The dish was actually tasty but full of crab shells and the pasta was overcooked.
I can't past crab shells in my crab meat. They should raise the price of the dish and use good jumbo lump crab meat instead.
All in all not a good experience.

The Arancini was to die for, innovative and delicious, Chef Anthony continues to raise the bar for me. Service as always was flawless and impeccable

My client and dining companion insisted I take him back when he returns to Philadelphia,

Thank you again for an amazing dining experience.

Rosa's is in an old victorian home on main street in yardley, pa. Recommend reservation on weekends and parking on weekends might take you a couple blocks from restaurant. It's a BYOB. The food is delicious and what I really like is you aren't hurried. Great place to go with friends you haven't seen in a while to carch up.

 (Orlando)·Dined on March 14, 2015

Four adults and one teen in our party, and we loved having a small private room to ourselves. Starters were best: those who had the calamari said it was excellent, the arancini were delicious. I did not understand my fried artichoke, because it was mostly dried, husky parts that were inedible (which I only discovered after nearly choking on the first bite). Very little to eat on that plate. One had the pork special and enjoyed it, the squid ink pasta was highly rated, the gnocchi was delicious and light. The two who ordered the lamb shank said it was tasteless, and my chicken scallopini was nothing special (the asparagus and roasted potatoes were very good). We shared a very good salted caramel cheesecake for dessert. We will return because we have enjoyed better entrees previously, and we like the service.

I was surprised when my sister's favorite Italian dish, spaghetti and meatballs was missing from the tiny dinner menu, but delighted with the specials of the day. One price included salad, entree, and dessert so for 4 people we walked away spending an even $100. Thankfully its a BYOB

Note: Based on one visit only.

Ordered Caponata and Olives on a busy Valentine's night. Large portion of each came with appetizers, not with good focaccia. Olive oil was far from first press and bland. Arancini was a tasteless rice ball in a good tomato sauce. Pasta Bolognese also had a nice red sauce but "where's the beef". Tasted more like a light tomato sauce than a ragu. Beef short rib was more like boiled beef. No sauce to speak of.

In its favor, service was accommodating to changes. Food was clearly fresh and not overcooked. Prices were reasonable. BYOB is always a nice feature. Choosing the right dishes and managing the wait person might result in a different experience.

The other patrons were all spread out so the noise was not a problem. Food was delicious, it was my first time there but others in the party had been here. Personally I loved it and would come back for sure. It's a great neighborhood place for special occasions, romantic dinners and just because lunch's. Very very nice.

We have dined fairly often at Rosa Bianca and always have a very good meal at a reasonable price. Reggie is often our waiter and he is the best. This time we were there on Christmas Eve, a time when service and food might not be up to par, but not so at Rosa Bianca. They had a full house, but no one missed a beat. Our meal was wonderful, and service (from Reggie) was superb.

Our server, Jose, was very friendly and extremly helpful and courteous and made us feel very welcome. I ordered a side dish of risotto as my entree and it was no oiutstanding, basically just rice, I had this here before and it was delicious. My husband the pork chop special which he said was good. Tea and coffee was served hot, which was great since it was a bit chilly by the window. Appetizers of olives and an order of aricine (rice balls) were delicious.

Typically the quality of the current menu items and specials is consistently very good. On this particular visit, everything (including the bread service) seemed a bit overcooked with a somewhat slower than normal service. Nothing was bad, but mostly just not up to usual standards. The salad course was quite good as usual.
