They were so accommodating for my daughters birthday.. they gave us her favorite table in bar window. Server was great and manager stopped by to say happy birthday and ask how dinner was. Candle came out in her dessert. Such a great place. We always enjoy it!

Food was fantastic!!! Service was great as well. Only complaint was being seated in the cafe part by the door on a chilly winter night. But overall, without a doubt will be returning!

Food was outstanding but the high tables are very small and not really a lot of room to even have bread with dinner. Not everything fit on our table. The sever was very good.

We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation. In future visits I will specify the Café rather than the bar. The bar was noisy and featured high top tables with backless stools. We prefer a regular table and chair. The service, however, was excellent. The wait staff couldn't have been more attentive. The food was very well prepared and very tasty. The prices were a bit high but when one sees an appetizer such as Tuna Pokey or crab cakes being offered you realize that only the best quality ingredients are being used. We will return.

While LaRosa's deserves high marks for its cozy atmosphere and the high quality of food served, may I just remark that $31.00 for veal parm (without even a vegetable on the plate, nor even a side of pasta) is absolutely ridiculous? Enough said. Won't be going back.

Everything was great except that we told our waitress we had to be somewhere in an hour, and the entrees didn't get delivered until minutes before we had to leave, so we had to eat in a rush. That was too bad because the food was excellent

We had a 6:15 PM reservation but were not seated till 6:45. There was no place to wait. So we stood awkwardly dodging wait staff. When we sat down they were out of half of the appetizers. Main dishes were good but the overall experience was disappointing given the price.

Great food and service. It’s a small restaurant with only a few tables and high top tables but great atmosphere. We had a high top for four so it was a little tight but that did not take away from the experience.

service was fantastic. Nice decor. We specified a regular table in our reservation but were shown to a high top, but given the option of regular table if we wanted. The bar are is very nice, but when patrons use that door its a blast of cold air for half of the room. Drinks were done well. crab cake app was great. Pappardelle Gamberetto was very tasty, but the pesto seemed to be something other than basil. The calamari buccatini (special) was tasty, but the calamari had a weird texture.

We have eaten at LaRosa's before, and the food has always been memorable. This is a cut above most Italian restaurants. The only negative on this occasion was the noise. We ate in the bar area, and it was just deafening. I have to acknowledge that it was so loud because it was jam-packed and everyone was having fun. But if you are sensitive to noise, consider asking to be seated outside of the bar area when you make your reservation.

I'm from out of town visiting on business and LaRosa's was recommended by my customer. I was very pleased with the quality, services and ambiance. Definitely will return next time I'm in town. Our waitress, Rene, was exceptionally warming and made our visit comfortable and enjoyable.

The fish special was outstanding, the chicken pizza was disappointing. The chicken pizza was overcooked which made it dry with a pasty sauce. The portions were large - a single salad was more than enough for 2 people and we were not able to finish our dinners. The service was friendly and efficient. We would definitely go back but order something other than the chicken pizza.
