Rossi's has been around in Hermanus since the mid 80's and has seen the town grow. It's a great local Italian Resturant, in the centre of town for affordable pizzas and pastas. Vibe a fun and staff are friendly. It's a safe choice for a meal.

Rossi's is one of the oldest Restaurants in Hermanus and has undergone many variations. In my view it is a solid family restaurant with nice decor and a good vibe. The menu is extensive even though it pitches itself as Italian. There is seafood and Steak if you lie and their pizza and ribs are recommended. Menu is reasonably priced.... More

Had a very nice meal at this bustling restaurant. We started with Grilled Calamari which was perfectly cooked, and Chicken Liver with Green Peppers and chili, which had too much green pepper, and not quite enough chili. For mains we had Ossobuco alla Milanese, which was very good, and the best Calzone that I have had for many years. The... More

Rossi 's is a nice Italian restaurant offering some tasty South African pizza variants (never seen avocado on a pizza pursue SA - but that works). The staff was very friendly.

Having bypassed Rossi's many times over the past few years, a group of us decided to visit. I should have gone there a long time ago! It was delightful. Good vibe, excellent food. The ladies loved the fact they were able to choose smaller portions, which they found perfectly adequate. It is an Italian restaurant, so go Italian -- pizza... More
