Two different neighbors recommended this restaurant to me. It's a blend of Italian and American. They serve prime rib on Friday and Saturday night but I got the chicken fettuccini alfredo and my husband got the lasagna (which he said was excellent and even better the next day). This restaurant is great for families. We brought our 6 year old.... More

Best lasagne I have ever had! I would have given this place 5 stars if the salad was better. I ordered blue cheese and it was flat tasting. The service was outstanding.

This was my second trip to Rosina's, both for dessert/coffee with the kids. Desserts are HUGE, which the kids love, and can easily be split between 2 or more people although the quality is no better than boxed cake mixes at home, yet are nonetheless fun due to the ridiculous size (watch the eyes of your kids or those at...

We needed a quick dinner before heading to a movie and a local recommended Rosine's. My husband really liked the miso salmon and I enjoyed a small salad. Price was fair.

Great place, very lovely decor. All dishes we ordered were delicious and good sized. Minestrone soup was awesome. Very accommodating to varying some dishes. Fast, friendly service. Dessert was also great and very big, enough to fully share around the table. Lasagna was so tasty and very cheesy, love this place.

I read mixed reviews about this place but was not disappointed. Its a cross between a diner and a family restaurant. Yes the décor is a bit weird, yes outdated but the food is good and the restaurant has a good feeling to it. I'll take ugly with good food any day. The staff is nice and seem to really... More

Have been coming here for about 25 years ++. Rosines rocks-- great food, fair prices, great location in downtown Monterey. And STILL the very best multi-layer whipped cream frosting cakes for dessert! Had my favorite, the Kit-Kat cake---it is worth a special trip here just for their cakes. However, their food has always been good and continues! Likeable staff, and... More

Our family went here for dinner on a Friday night. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. I had their prime rib entree, which is served on Friday and Saturday evening. It was tasty, and cooked perfectly. Someone else in our family had the risotto, which was over-cheesed and on the salty side. I would recommend the... More

They have large portions, and the food is good. The cost is moderate. This is something you wouldn't expect from a place such as this.
