Nice ambiance but very noisy, no sound deadening at all. Hard to have a conversation. Bread good but no butter. Oil and pepper on table. Not very good execution for a "fine dining" restaurant. Food good but not amazing. Server not very attentive but pleasant. Never did get my drink refilled.

We were seated promptly for dinner. The first clean table we were going to sit down to had crumbs on it, same with the one we ended up at. Disappointing. I had to ask twice for a water refill and my boyfriend also ran out of water. Food came out fast, crab cakes were good. Bread was good, but no... More

Parking is adequate, lighting outside satisfactory. Upon arriving greeted professionally with friendly smile. The property is clean. The menu is varied. The food is well prepared, strong presentation. Very fresh and well seasoned. Service to par. A bit pricey but is worth it. Will return again.

No complaints about the food, service or ambiance but even with all that, I just didn't feel the value was there. This was a business meal so cost really wasn't a concern, but I did think $50 a head with a glass of wine was a bit steep.

The food was excellent. It was a quiet restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The restaurant was slow when we got there and there were two tables behind us that were dirty when we sat down and remained dirty until we left which we thought was a bit strange. There was staff everywhere that looked like they could have cleaned them... More

I met a business colleague at Rossa's which had been recommended by our hotel. We were more than pleasantly surprised. We had cocktails and dinner in the bar area (had to watch basketball!). The ambience was just right for our needs. It was an easy place to chat and talk a little business. The cocktail pour was healthy. I always... More

Before flying to Europe we visited this great eatery with friends who drove us to the ONT Airport. A bit on the pricy side - but - well worth it!

The atmosphere and ambiance was fabulous, our server was very knowledgeable of the wines and jumped into the specialty dishes of the day. Food presentation was beautiful as well as dessert. Crime Brul'e was good just a bit burnt and not enough glass effect but good.

Since the change in ownership, I have eaten at Rossa's a few times with mixed results. At one time, they were trying different breads - hit and miss. Pasta was always cooked al dente with my favorite being the one with a porcini mushroom sauce, which unfortunately is no longer listed on the menu. Their pasta with grilled chicken is... More
