I went here on the recommendation of a friend. First time with my husband, dinner in the dining room. Very warm welcome and excellent food. Next time I was in the area, I called and ordered their lasagna for take out. It was GREAT. I get hungry just thinking about it. Not fancy, not pricey. Home cooked italian deliciousness.

After a long day of shopping, we were starving and wanted a place nearby. A close friend had recommended this restaurant so we decided to give it a try. First of all, the place is quite small with no real place to wait, so when there is a wait to sit, you are literally in the way regardless if you... More

We went here for lunch and was surprised by how friendly the staff was the second we walked in. Sat down in less than 10min and had an awesome bowl of pasta. The bread was fresh and the sauce was GREAT! That's all a man can ask for.

Went there when it was downtown Rochester 20 years ago and it was the best homemade traditional Italian food. Went there tonight and found it to be even better. If you haven't been GO!

On the recommendation of some local friends, we went to Rosie's for dinner on a Saturday and although we we're told they don't take reservations, we asked and they took ours for 6pm. The wait staff were excellent and checked on us frequently. We ordered mozzarella sticks as an appetizer and they were good, very well cooked. They were a... More

The side salads are very Large as well as the entre's, we all had leftovers. And like the title says they are very service friendly. We stayed for desert and... More

Dined here last night with my wife. Nothing fancy in terms of decor - bare bones neighborhood Italian restaurant. Great food, friendly service, varied menu, and probably lowest entree prices in town. We've had several meals there - most everything very good. My only complaint is that I love pasta with vodka sauce - ordered it last night and once... More

My wife and I are addicted to the lasagna. The sauce is ALMOST as good as my late Mama's was. All who work their make you feel like you are at home, and very comfortable. Be sure to stop by on chicken pastina soup night!

Earlier this week we went with a group of fourteen - a challenge for a relatively small restaurant. We were immediately seated and were were attentively served. The kitchen was responsive and prepared tasty dishes. The only corrective comment I heard was that the chicken French sauce was a bit thin. We will be back.

This was a very small place when it first opened with just a few tables. The food was good and the place was always full. More recently the have expanded into adjoining space and have about 3 times as much room as before. I have only been there 3 times and can only say I was not disappointed in food... More
