Pasta, pizza, fish and meat dishes are all satisfactory, but nothing special. It was bustling and noisy with young children even late at night.

We enjoyed our meal here tremendously. The staff were very attentive and efficient. I had Osso Bucco which was done in a tomato sauce. I have never had anything so tasty and tender. There was lots to choose from as the menu was quite varied.

Order take away pizza just to arrive there 40 minutes later to be informed that our pizza was never ordered. They didn't even apologize and wanted us to wait another 30 minutes for our pizza. This is my first feedback ever on trip advisor so you can imagine how upset I am.

We grabbed a bite here early in January and were surprised by the lack of patrons. It was ok but definitely better places to visit in this town.

We were promptly seated by a very charming hostess, and although Rossi's was full, the service was prompt and friendly. There was a good buzz going in the restaurant and we ordered pizzas, which were very delicious. Thin crisp bases done in a wood-fired oven made these pizzas very memorable. I recommend that all pizza lovers go and eat at... More

We have been regular visitors to Hermanus for the past 14 years. For many of them Rossis was one of our favourites restaurants. A simple Italian eatery that had mastered a great thin base for its pizzas. A couple of years ago it was gentrified and prices shot up while the service plummeted. Still it remained a regular on our... More

A first visit and we all enjoyed our meals. An easy walk from the main square - and clearly a favorite day and night.
