Stopped in for dinner one night and the service was exceptional and the food was good. This place hasn't changed much in over 30 years other than relocations upstairs form their original downstairs location.

Here for lunch. Service was great, ambiance is quite pleasant, about 75% full. Food is old school Italian - comfort food and reasonably priced

I have lived in North York my whole life and passed Rossini's thousands of times. Thought we should try it. Mistake. Food was just OK. Service? Waiter spilled an entire glass of water on one of our companions and threw a few napkins at us....More

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
