The special crab, asparagus & pasta dish was supposed to have notable pieces of crab in it. At best, the pieces were shreds. The delicate taste of crab was greatly overpowered by a highly seasoned sauce. My husband's eggplant was tasty, but served only a tad warmer than room temperature. The small cannoli's were over-powered by a very thick shell and so much chocolate was ground into the ricotta filling that you couldn't tell what you were tasting--chocolate or vanilla. We have eaten here several times and it is a "hit or miss" evening each time. We'd love more consistency.

Good restaurant, good experience. Appetizers, salads and pastas were excellent, as were vegetables. Short rib dish lacked flavor and was undistinguished, recommend sticking to more traditional Italian dishes. Only so-so part of an otherwise good night.

Tucked away in Yardley, PA, we had passed it many times and decided to give it a whirl. The food was full of flavor, and the service was very nice. The only reservation, about our first-time, was the age and upkeep of the building. Bathrooms were clean and would suspect the same in the kitchen, but clearly the restaurant needs updating with, at a minimum, a fresh coat of paint.

Loved the quaint setting and the food was absolutely delicious. This came recommended to us for both a family meal as well as a wedding rehearsal dinner venue. After eating there we booked the venue for our wedding rehearsal dinner and can't wait for the rest of our group to experience it!

Trattoria Rosa Bianca remains a phenomenal value!

At this visit, I tried two desserts that were new to me -- the Blood Orange Tart and the Red Velvet Pizzelle. Both were excellent. They were sweet but not cloying. The Blood Orange Tart was particularly impressive.

I love how creative the menu is at Rosa Bianca (e.g., Blood Orange Tart, gnocchi with blueberries, etc.).

A fine Italian experience. Atmosphere is perfect for romantic date night. Food taste and prep is excellent. Can't be the value either, very reasonable.

Worth noting that the staff recognizes and takes care of patrons' comfort: it was an especially frigid winter night and they had extra heaters out making the experience cozy warm. So many times I find many places keep the temps uncomfortably low because staff is warm running around (as the staff is often controlling the temperature set-point).

First time dining, went for Valentine’s Day dinner. Experience was very nice, along with very tasty food. Calamari was one of the best we’ve had in a long time. Portions were nice and had a while room to ourselves for our romantic dinner. We will definitely be going back for another meal.

Our server Taylor was knowledgeable professional and greeted us with a smile. We asked for suggestions and she gave us many options. My friends and I ordered Chicken Milanese , king crab pasta in a blush sauce and salmon. All were delicious! We have been here many times and definitely will come back.

Cool old house. That is about it. The food was mediocre at best. Terrible service. Our reservation was at 8:30. At 10:15 we were asked to leave because they were closing the place. The staff seem didn’t care. Terrible experience overall.

We had not been to Rosa Bianca in a few years (when the food and service were inconsistant) and decided to give it a try. We were very pleasantly surprised. The service was friendly and timely. Everyone's meal was excellent. Atmosphere cozy and pleasant. All in all a very nice evening.

Three of the four entrees were very good; one person’s scallops were judged as ‘salty.’ The short rib was a very generous serving; it was very tender and the fried polenta outstanding.

We loved celebrating New Year's Eve at Rosa Bianca with relatives who had never been there before. We were all delighted with our experience. We regularly go to Rosa Bianca to celebrate our special events - anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, etc. This is a great classy but very welcoming restaurant, even BYOB!!
