What a bad experience. We were excited to try seafood on our first night in Rome and stumbled upon this place near our hotel. Our biggest complaint was the poor service. We had long waits for our appetizers, main courses, and the check, despite seeing multiple waiters and even the chef spending a lot of time at other tables, talking with patrons. The food was good, but not amazing, and the awful service did not justify the prices. Stay away. If you want a great taste of Rome, walk towards the Pantheon, head around the corner to the right just before you reach the square and spend your euros at the amazing gelato joint instead. This is how we redeemed our evening.

When our hotel recommended this restaurant, I read the reviews and saw the differing opinions about the cost and the service. I definitely come down on the side of those who think it is overpriced. But, I do not agree with those who think the service is too pushy. To the contrary, we repeatedly had trouble getting the attention of the servers. When we were seated, we waited quite a while even for water. The wait to get wine was much longer. The food was good, but overshadowed by the service issues and definitely not worth the very high price.

La Rosetta is a small restaurant close to the Pantheon. It specialises in serving seafood of the highest order and freshest quality. The chef's focus is on the ingredients, so mostly the dishes are simply cooked and beautifully presented.

The wine list is comprehensive and the sommelier will guide you through.

The room is quietly luxurious and there is also an outdoor dining area on the street.

The owner is gregarious, knowledgeable and helpful in his recommendations. His service staff are expert, efficient and approachable.

In summary, this is fine dining in Rome of a very high standard. You can expect a beautiful night out knowing you're in expert hands.

Went on a Wednesday night and this place was packed! You know that is a good sign and it was mostly locals, only a few foreign foreigners. We started out with a great bottle of Champagne (Krug), as this was a splurge meal. We were seated at a very nice table where we had a view of the entire main room. We started with the seafood platter, it was one of the better ones I have had recently. There was definitely enough food for the two of us, it included, scallops, shrimp, oysters and clams. We then had the fried zucchini blossoms and they were fantastic. Followed by lobster linguini, this dish was very well sized for the price with alot of lobster in it, they certainly didn't skimp on the lobster. This was an amazing dish, both of us were extremely happy and satisfied after this course. Then back out into the lovely Roman night to continue getting to know this fantastic city.

La Rosetta is downright fabulous. The food, the wine and service were all absolutely superb on a quiet Tuesday night in Rome. I do not understand the comments about pricing from some reviewers. Yes we paid E600 for a party of 4 and we all had the huge hot and cold seafood antipasti, then each had an amazing squid, spelt pasta and ricotta pasta dish, then 3 of us shared a whole sea bream in salt crust and the other had steak and then shared 2 dessert plates. And 3 bottles of wine and waters. All in all for anyone who travels internationally that is more than a reasonable price. The seafood was incredibly fresh, modern and tasty. We spend a month in Italy every year and there are not that many better places at half the price as some reviewers claim. I would recommend this restaurant to any discerning diners.
