Dining at Rosina’s is like stepping back in time. No flash tablecloths, old fashion service, friendly. The food is great, old fashioned Italian. I would recommend this restaurant if you are looking for great food. Bookings necessary, especially Friday & Saturday nights

This place serves Italian food to fight for! And you may have too if you have not booked a table. The food is delicious. The atmosphere always good with lots of locals and people who drive from out of town to come here.

Lovely service. Great vibe to place but unfortunately the pizza was thick with base with little substance on top. Was hoping for a little more on top

We keep going back to the restaurant but it's often booked out so you need to book early. The limone veal is irresistable. The garlic prawns is good for a starter. The staff are friendly.

Tiny, cheery, fun. Right next door to one of Newcastle's fine dining establishments. Almost poking out a tongue at them! Great Italian basics: veal, chicken, pizza all the classics. Garlic prawns are soooo good. The place is spilling onto the footpath on a not-so-warm Newcastle...More
