We came to get good Italian food - which we did - but the strongest takeaway was that this was exactly like a NYC restaurant in the movies. Warm and nice atmosphere with good service. Food slightly high in price wrt value for money. Definitely worth a visit.

Red Rose is a neighborhood restaurant that has been there for many years. The cuisine is Southern Italian, heavy on red sauce. Daily specials and a large varied menu. Seafood dishes are terrific as are the different pasta sauces. They feature a very reasonably priced house wine. Desserts are excellent as well. Service is friendly and attentive. Parking is on...

This a neighborhood place that people keep coming back to whether they still live in the neighborhood or not. Pasta, seafood, meat or chicken are all served to perfection and Tony's rice balls are the best. The service is very good and there is a "family like" atmosphere which is something that is not easily accomplished.

Authentic, home-style Italian cooking. My wife and I took a chance on this small, neighborhood restaurant because she wanted an Italian dinner. The owner welcomed us like old friends. Other diners seemed like they were indeed regulars to the establishment. We were encouraged to order a house specialty, rice balls, which I had never heard of in an Italian restaurant.... More

Everything about Red Rose is amazing. A true neighborhood gem. The food is like mom would make and the waiters are incredible. I wish I could eat here every week.

Stop into the Red Rose after a movie. It was around 6 so not busy yet. Atmosphere very friendly and after a while filled up with regulars. Had the smoked clams, large but chewy and stuffed pork chop, gigantic but too large to finish and a bit tough. The special drink was good. Must say my companions loved the food... More

The Red Rose of Carroll Gardens is and always will be the best for authentic Italian fare. I moved out of NYC last year and believe me, the Red Rose is dearly missed. Amazing food ( rice balls, eggplant and seafood pasta from heaven) and the friendly family atmosphere puts this little gem over the top.
