Excited to go there - booked through opentable - got the babysitter in, got a taxi there only to find a note in the window saying the restaurant was closed. Couldnt get in another restaurant locally - went home and ordered pizza. Very disappointing friday date night :(

Second visit and still really like this place. The food is simple and great quality at pretty reasonable prices. Staff are friendly and it is quite an informal little place but they make you feel quite special. Will be back.

This place was a great little find. Local, pretty unassuming from the outside but we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Food was really tasty - decent choices and all good. Will def return.

Very friendly service and my prosecco was beautifully presented with a delicious strawberry on the side.
My son really enjoyed his pizza although my friend was a little disappointed with the quantity of salmon on her plate compared to salad. However, the waitress took it away and the salmon was topped up free of charge.
I will happily go back again but I would suggest that customers would be more content and happy to pay a little more if their food contained more of the main ingredient.

Was delighted to find Café Rosi and expectant when we arrived - a lovely small cosy restaurant with a inviting ambience. Unfortunately the food was disappointing - especially the saute potatoes which were hardly sautéed.. When we asked about it, there was not much of a response from the waitress but later when raising it again with the manager, we were informed that this is due to the older clientele and that if we want them crispy next time, to ask on ordering. My friend said her fish was dry. The desert looked beautiful but was nothing to write home about. So whilst ambience and value and range on menu get big ticks from me, unfortunately the food is disappointing and we probably wont go back. May try it for brunch and see if that is better.

2 people 3 courses plus drinks and coffees £39. It's bargain, the food is basic but of a nice quality . We like it as its not main stream and has a nice feel.

Thought we would try this little local Italian as the reviews were good.
The staff were very nice and welcoming. The place soon filled up with regulars so our hopes were high.
The menu is not as traditional as I thought it would be as it had things like chicken wings in chilli and BBC sauce, is this usual in Italy?
There weren't any specials of the day just the menu.

The antipasti starter was ok, although I thought we could have been given more than 3 small slices of baguette. The ragu filled arancini was luke warm with not much flavour.
Then a few Deliveroo guys arrived waiting to pick up take aways.
We didn't mind the delay as we don't like to rush through the courses.
The pasta dish arrived again luke warm but flavour was ok.
Another delay and then our veal arrived. The sauté potatoes were a mixture of piping hot and half frozen pallid chunks. No crispy bits.
We sent the dish back and got a plate with piping hot pots but the veal was now over cooked.
Such a shame.
The staff said the chef was really busy with all the take away orders so he must have rushed our meal and that's why it was cold.
Not a pleasant experience so sorry Cafe Rosi we will not be back.

Cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Small cafe setting and very cheap prices - between £4-£11 - so we were not too sure how good it would be. But oh my goodness, it felt like I was in Italy. Incredible dishes, completely authentic and such great value for money. I will be taking everyone I know there now! If you are looking for a nice get together dinner in Wimbledon and want to taste incredible Italian food, definitely take the trip to Cafe Rosi.

Came here Christmas Eve with my two teenage daughters. Amazingly, it wasn't busy and service was quick & friendly. Food was good, no frills, standard Italian fare. This is an ideal place for relaxed & cosy, snack or meal.

We recently diacovered this lovely little Italian restaurant in our neighbourhood. Our first experience was a tasty, light lunch of delicious paninis, which we enjoyed while admiring the pleasing decor and marvelling at the unbelievably reasonable prices on the breakfast and dinner menu. We took home a selection of scrumptious biscuits from their impressive patisserie and biscuit counter and vowed to return. We did so, for dinner, only a week or so later. We were not disappointed! Fantastic 3 course meal including delicious monkfish and veal mains, lovely wine by the glass, and decadent desserts, all for £70 with service, which was friendly and efficient. Run by a lovely local italian family. It was quiet on a Saturday night but that suited us - and it's small, so feels cosy anyway. Amazing value and we can't wait to go back.

Good value local cafe with Italian bent. You can sit outside but Leopold Road is busy. Service is friendly.
