The old grey mare ain't what she used to be. Portions smaller, silverware and dishes not always clean. You have to ask for soda refills, lemon in my water slick. Garlic toast stale, served with a table spoon of bar cheese. I could go on. We won't be back.

Waitress was unhappy about working double shift. Got the wrong order to start. Never came back after correction to ask how we were doing or if she could get us anything else. Did not offer dessert or second glass of wine.

the pizza and bread sticks are great! the décor is dated and the seats are horrible, but if you sit in the bar area it is more comfortable. The food is terrific if you can put the other aside!

This is a long standing restaurant in the community. It's well known for it's unique pizza and ample Italian dishes. The décor is a little much in need of renovation. The redecorated bar area is nice but not often open; however, only beer and wine is available.

This family owned buisness has been here since the 60s when I was a kid. Back then the lasagna became my favorite item. To this day I still order it. Same recipe and flavor. Love the ravioli too Pizza is unbelievably good. Chicken Parmesan is my wife's favorite. Cozy atmosphere and the service is like having family waiting on you.... More

We invited another couple to this old family restaurant. This place has been open all our lives, but there must be a different owner now. The food was of such a low quality as to provide a horrifying is-this-real quality of entertainment. The only thing worse was the service and the place was not clean, either. We were embarrassed beyond... More

If you are looking for cliche Italian cuisine and ambiance-Rosie's Little Italy is it. Our chicken cacciatore tasted like it was from a package and the service was bland. I really wanted to love this place but for the one and only time ever in my life eating here-it was like an Italian truck stop. They need better quality standards... More

We went to Rosie's for our 38th anniversary dinner tonight. We used to eat at Mike's Little Italy in Wabash when we were dating but it closed long ago. I had just heard that Rosie's has the same veal Parmesan and cheese spread we used to enjoy at Mike's, so we tried it again. The entrance and overall decor were... More

Rosie's Little Italy has been a staple In Marion for nearly 50 years. It has recently been redecorated and the new atmosphere is a welcome change. The food is yummy! Delicious tomato sauce on the spaghetti and the lasagna. Crunchy garlic toast squares with delicious cheese spread. The pizza also has an outstanding sauce combined with a thin crust. My... More
