I am sorry to say this, but the food was not very good. The presentation of the food was poor, all of the dishes tasted quite mediocre. We eat out a lot and this is definitely not worth the money. Could have cooked better food at home.

Restaurant was nearly empty which should've been a clue to stay away. Service was excellent but the food was sub par. The veal was fine but the chicken dish was terrible. Would not go back.

The Caesar salad was laughable. The minestrone soup was just good. The veal Rossini was very tasty. Desert was also good.
We had the tiramisu and the Caramell cake.

The service was amazing as always with our waiter Roy. The salmon was a bit harder than usual. The seafood pasta was great!

All of the food was excellent. One of the few times that none of us had anything left to wrap at the end of the meal.

Was there on a groupon voucher.

We were 4 people on a Saturday evening. The place was nearly empty. Waiters were very attentive and friendly.

We had the bruschetta and Caesar sale for apps. Bruschetta was quite good as was the Caesar.

For mains we had the veal pacata, the manicotti, veal tenderloin and the Salmon.

Veal pacata was actually quite nice. It was tender with decent gravy with prosciutto on top. Manicotti wasn’t that great. Tasted like it was thawed out from frozen.

The veal tenderloin was quite nice, also very tender but a bit devoid of flavor. The Salmon dish was decent enough with a good helping of veggies.

We also all had a glass of house red wine that was very decent.

Overall I would rate Rossini a 3 star. There are a few Italian restaurants nearby that are better. Namely Gamberoni.

For a Groupon deal it wasn’t too bad.

I love this restaurant. People don’t know just how unique it is to have a restaurant like this still in existence.

I would recommend all the live long day.

First time at this restaurant with friends. Had the lobster gnocci, lamb, veal tenderloin, and some appetizers, along with a couple of bottles of wine. Food and wine was very tasty. Roy's service was attentive.

this restaurant is well beyond it's prime. i used to eat there years ago. it has moved upstairs and the food is very poor in quality , the portion size is small and the pricing is equal to above great downtown restaurants.

the staff is inexperienced. dont waste your time or money. it is not a good place to dine

I have Caesar salad its good, veal scallopini was so so, the sauce also so so I had better ones. My friends have veal tenderloin it looks good very tender. The coffee is good and so is the red wine. Service is very good but again only a few tables there. Environment is very nice and quiet. The dessert my friends have looks good too.

I confess we were a little disappointed this time - we have been going to Rossini's for many many years. We have always enjoyed wonderful service but this time was different. Our regular waiters were not there - one has left and is working somewhere else - but the waiters who were there were very "green" - they need training.

This was our second time using a Groupon coupon, and clearly, Rossini's has cut back on portions and quality of food to offer this "deal meal ".
Would not return using a Groupon coupon.

We went for dinner here this week for Valentine's day. One of the worst experiences ever. We sat for 20mins before our server acknowledged us. 30mins before there was a glass of wine and coffee on the table. Not sure why they were so under staffed on a busy night. Food was only so so. Will not go back.

Always excellent home cooked Italian food. Delicious olive crusted branzino. Remember to light the candles on the tables for evening atmosphere.

The waiter waiter appeared to be inconvenienced when we asked him for side plates so we could eat our bread and knives so we could eat our meals.

We shared most of our food - traditional Italian meals, but when the dishes were brought he just “dumped” them in front of one of us and said “you can figure it out”. The table was small and so we were juggling between ourselves to sort out our meals.

This is experience stands out in my mind as of the the most outstandingly bad experience at a restaurant.

The food was very tasty. We also noticed another waiter (non Caucasian) in the dinning room who seemed very attentive and very cordial with his customers. I do not know the name of our waiter but he would be the caucasian waiter on staff on Saturday.

Very disappointing experience. We used a Buytopia coupon, which had typos on the menu and one appetizer option was not served as offered (according to the server, it was a mistake on the menu). Inflated value of the voucher as the meal was not worth the price they indicated.

Food would have been preferred if it not frozen. One dish out of four was frozen. All three desserts frozen. Nothing homemade.

Everything Rossini's fed me for dessert I feed my children so going out for dinner didn't seem like a treat at all.

If Rossini's can not stop feeding patrons frozen meals then its time to close shop.

It pretty daring to charge me top dollar for substandard food.
