I've lived in lake placid the past year and Jay the past three months and I've never seen this place open. It's a shame to. It's such a nice looking place in a convenient location.

Food was good . Only issue I had was the owner had her dog in the kitchen while she was preparing food even though it was in a corner very unsanitary in my book.

My husband and I had a pre-wedding "welcome" dinner for approx. 40 people at Rosalia's in September 2015. Rosalia and her staff were phenomenal. Rosalie really went the extra mile for us -- she even drove to Vermont to get us Heady Topper beer:) Our guests loved the food, from the well-selected apps to the desserts. We have eaten there...

Do not write bad reviews as I do not want to hurt family owned businesses, however I am doing so for the first time. Booked for 2nd time a rehearsal wedding party(approx. 45 people) here. Had made plans with owner months in advance and once there almost everything went downhill. Pre-planned dinner choices picked with counts given and did not... More

Very nice restaurant with truly excellent food. Super fresh chicken cutlet, cooked perfectly. Great roasted peppers. Food prices very reasonable, portions huge. Wine by the glass slightly overpriced. Service is very slow so beware. We had plenty of time and so didn't care, but be aware of that. Overall dining time was 2 hours. But the owner and cook came... More

Rosalia's is definitely a unique experience. I've never been to a restaurant where there is no menu and the owner just asks 'what are you in the mood for, if I have it in the kitchen I will make it!' What a great experience we had and the food was amazing!!! We will definitely be back!!

While some people may be put off by no menu, it makes for a wonderful experience in the end. They verbally give the selections available for the evening. The prices are reasonable, the service is great and while there may be a bit of a wait for some, it is well worth the wait as this is the best italian... More

This is a very unique place. It is more like your grandmother's kitchen than a restaurant. The food is made special to your order. There are no menus. The meals change daily. Rosalia comes out to your table herself to tell you what she is cooking for the day. And the meals are EXCELLENT!!! Very authentic Italian food.

Thank Janet M
