Good food and nice people. The decor is very dated and small changes will make a big difference

We love the cozy and friendly atmosphere as well as the always freshly prepared food at Trattoria Rosa Bisnca.
We started with the most tender and delicious grilled octopus. The homemade pasta and the traditional Neopolitan style lasagna was absolutely authentic! Family style salad is a perfect intermezzo! The chicken with prosciutto, roasted potatoes and broccoli rabe had to be a take out after a succulent bite!

The setting was somewhat private. One in our party was 1 hour late, however the server was very accomodating and we had several appetizers that were very good including the Antipasta with meat slices, roasted peppers and arugula, for got the name of the other one.

The crab salad was delicious. Serving portions of all entrees were quite generous. Will definitely like to return with my wife.

The website picture of the building looked like a very big Victorian house and it was not. It was very quaint and charming however. The service was slow and the room was a little noisy., were on the second floor. My husband and I are foodies and we both love to cook and know our way around the kitchen so our expectations are a bit high. Our food was ok, I had the roast pork which was a shoulder cut so a little more fatty. It was fork tender but a little too sweet since it was cooked with peaches. I should have gotten the salmon but when I saw the description, steamed in parchment paper I changed my mind, not a big fan of steaming fish! We probably would not return unless we went specifically for a pasta dish.

From the warm greeting at the reception desk by Cecilia to the outstanding table service from Michelle, to the delicious and meticulously prepared food, our dining experience at Trattoria Rosa Bianca was delightful. The fresh focaccia that is brought out with mashed Kalamata olives in delicious olive oil is always a welcomed bite to start off the meal. The focaccia is a great accompaniment to every course that follows including the home style house salad that is part of every main course!
We started off by sharing the grilled octopus served with crispy roasted potatoes and French green beans, perfectly dressed and freshly prepared each time!
My main course was the ‘Salmon al cartoccio’ (salmon cooked in parchment paper with white beans, baby zucchini, cherry tomatoes in white wine) which I asked to be cooked medium rare and it came out perfect. What a delightful dish! My husband ordered the special of the day, a flank steak bracciole served with their signature homemade pasta, and broccoli rabe. It was Delicious!

Food and service were fantastic as usual. Sat outside on the porch which is usually lovely, but the couple next to us was talking so loudly that my husband couldn’t hear a word I said. This really detracted from the experience. But no fault of Rosa’s!

First time at Rosa Bianca. Special birthday dinner. Service was excellent and attentive. Our server Reggie was especially nice. Appetizers were excellent. Everyone enjoyed then. Arancini was very good, but slightly undercooked. Otherwise, no complaints. We all ordered different entrees and everyone enjoyed their choices. Will definitely go back.

Squid ink gnocchi was great! My husband loves the chicken cutlet with arugula.
I am missing their arugula, pistachio, shaved parmesan with lemon vinaigrette salad and hoping it comes back to the menu soon!
buratta app is always delish!

calamari fritti was enormous in portion. did not ike the iced cold chopped tomato with it...needs a warm or hot marinara sauce

Never been to any victorian home style restaurant. It was a nice experience, the atmosphere was very cool. Service was nice too! I had never heard about the Gnocchi with blueberry sauce! It was a very unique dish and I tried it. It was so delicious. Eggplant was awesome too!!!!! The food was really worth the money and Above all, you get a royal and kind of rich experience at this place!

Genuinely disappointed , took friends here for restaurant week and they were not impressed.Although the restaurant is cute and quaint, it was SO INCREDIBLY LOUD we literally could not have a conversation. This was our 4th visit here, it’s very local to us, but our first impression was not great so we didn’t revisit for several years. We had 2 great meals between these visits so decided to go for restaurant week. We did not order from the special menu, as nothing spectacular was offered. Two items on the regular menu were already not available, and the entrees we ended up with were just OK- ravioli, gnocchi, eggplant and pasta with seafood. It all sounded quite exotic on the menu, but was fairly standard. Additionally, it was a fairly pricey meal for a BYOB, and unfortunately later that evening one of us had an upset stomach. Not a good experience, very sad to say.

Waitress Kate was a sweetheart. Where we were located in the alcove with no cloth to take up all the sound in the room that seemed to revibrate and echo. All 4 of us were in the huh, what, pardon me mode. The table for two was so close that the lady that sat down really looked uncomfortable with the proximity and moved. She could have easily joined us it was so close.
Food was good. The cold potato salad was just way too many potatoes and needs something to take the place of 1/2 of the potatoes. The steak which I ordered medium to well was very very medium but the flavor was good. My wifes scallops could have had a couple more scallops and 1/2 of the risotto. She will be eating risotto for 2-3 meals.
I never questioned the other couple but they didnt express any complaints during dinner.
My wife and I were embarrassed about the gift card we were given and in turn turned it in on the meal. But graciously you decided to honor it and it was a wedding anniversary. That in itself will bring us back but we wont bother you again with a gift card. I can see where parking is a problem as we were the last that could fit at 6pm.

This restaurant reminds me of some of the Italian restaurants in the city. It's a house setting so the place was full and it was a bit loud. However, that being said, the food was excellent and service was too -- I will definitely go back again. Another plus BYOB!

I will start by saying this, Marvin, our server was amazing; he was personable and attentive to our every need!
The food was equally amazing, starting with the tender and delicious grilled octopus served with roasted chick peas and arugula that didn’t need to be swimming in oil to have delicious flavor. The meatballs were spectacular as were the homemade cavatelli topped with fresh sea scallops, and the perfectly prepared, to order, steamed salmon in parchment!
