We were 20 people joining together the Rossini's restaurant after a long trip in Jerusalem city. Very easy to find near the Jaffa gate, excellent welcome, quiet and soothing, succulent meet and relaxing atmosphere.

Some of the photos shown here on TA for Rossini's made me want to try this restaurant. When we arrived what we saw was a restaurant packed with tour groups all eating the same average things, none of which looked very appetizing. We tried the mezzo platter and it was simply average. We also ordered the Musakhan which is Palestinian... More

I asked around and was supposed to go to nearby Nafoura Resto but was closed so ended nearby at Rossini which turned out to be a pleasant, friendly and very delicious restaurant. The chef greets the customers and recommends certain dishes. Top dish is the Arabic salad and shrimp falafel w tahini sauce. Don't miss out on the beef stroganoff... More

I had lunch in Rossini's after a morning full of meetings. We ordered the mixed appetizer dish to start with. It was very small, and one of the items on the dish was frozen! The comparison with a neighboring restaurant's mixed appetizer dish is inevitable! For main my companion had a salad and I had the salmon and cream cheese... More

We made a booking and when we arrived the starter was already served. Took a while til the dinner was served after we had finished our meal but it was affordable and speaking for the cost. Deserves a visit.

Our tour guide knew we would enjoy a change of pace so he took us to Rossini's in the Old City. It was lovely! Excellent Israeli wines, chicken, lamb, etc. Great service. A very pretty place!

I had the chance to have dinner there twice this time--both times good food. It was also a pleasant place to eat with a friend over there.

We were thrilled to find Rosini's after a week of terrible hotel meals that came with our package. The chef at Eucalyptus (another fine restaurant near the Jaffa Gate) recommended we try it and we're so glad we did. Super service and innovative food was a welcome change from the buffet at Hotel Gloria. The owner was exceptionally attentive. He... More

We ate here in March 2016. It was late and we were looking for a restaurant close to our hotel (Lutheran Guest House - see review) that was still open. Rossini's fit the bill. The food & service were good - nothing exceptional, just a decent, relatively inexpensive restaurant meal.

Wonderful food with interesting local takes on Italian food. The filet mignon was superb, along with the regional wines. The lasagna was also excellent.
