We recently went to 255 for dinner with friends. We started off by sharing polenta fries and fried calamari. For our mains we had pappardelle al coniglio, branzino & gamberi al diabolo. Everything that we ordered was very tasty. With respect to service, it was...good but our server was a bit surly to start but was a lot better by the end of our meal.More

The food was excellent. I started with a Caesar salad and my husband had the caprese salad (daily special). I had the Sally’s pizza (white sauce, gorgonzola, pears, walnuts and prosciutto - interesting and delicious) and my husband had the diavolo pizza (tomato sauce, salami,...hot sausage, hot peppers, black olives and arugula - not too spicy and also delicious). We could not finish our pizza so we got a to go box. The waiter was friendly but overly busy as he had a hard time checking on us. We would go back if ever in the area.More

Excellent food and service was exceptional. Price was very comparable to other restaurants. Make sure to make a reservation even though they accommodated us last minute.

I truly prefer to make positive posts. But when the owner of a restaurant is this rude, I feel it should be posted. I have been here several times and was mixed about it. But when food is sent back because it’s cold, and the...owner gives you dirty looks and then doesn’t take it off the bill clearly hoping that we wouldn’t notice, well you’d think that would be bad enough. But when someone approaches the owner nicely after the meal to express their disappointment, and she has the nerve to say if you wanted free food you should have just asked, well that’s someone who won’t be in business a year from now. Terribly disappointing, rude and frankly stupid. So long 255 Alta Rosa. RIP.More

Absolutely offended by our server, aswell as the manager. Me and my family love italian! We are asian.. and many comments was made about how they are "shocked we picked here" to eat... Asked my mom to open her eyes... her eyes were opened but...it was a racially motivated comment. Not welcoming and so so rude. They charged us 100$ extra and i had to read the bill to realize and THEN they gave me it back. is this a playground?? or a BUISSNESS?More

Mediocre experience overall. The steak I ordered was bland, full of gristle, practically burnt on the outside and blue rare on the inside. No where near the medium rare I ordered. No one checked on us after receiving our meals for quality or additional drinks....When someone finally came to clear our plates, I got a quiet sorry when I explained why I hadn't eaten most of the over priced steak. It's unfortunate the bolognese my wife ordered was delicious as it's unlikely we will ever go back.More

T E R R I B L E. i have NEVER in my 21 years of being alive experienced this amount of disrespect and disgusting service. I was laughed at, mocked, and kicked out of the resturant after only being there for 1 hour... just...because i was in a wheelchair. I WILL NEVER EVER EVER reccomend this plave to anyone else. they stood at our table and the stupid manager was so rude and told us to leave for no reason, just because after 1 hour of beinh there another table wanted our table. she lied and said it was a suprise party that wanted our table but i waited to see and there was no suprise.. she lied. DISGUSTING.More

I hosted my daughter bridal shower at this restaurant. People are still talking about how fantastic the food service and the owner was. Pat helped us prepare a pre-fixed menu and I could not believe the amount of food and the price she quoted us....She was so accommodating and easy to contact along the way and always got back to me promptly. People who have never been there are telling me been back so many times after this shower they attended the food was amazing the best they ever had. Any events moving forward this is the only restaurant I would book.More

My friend and I had reservations but unfortunately some ppl that had a two hour time limit were not leaving. We waited an hour for our table. Pat and Walter were absolutely horrified that these ppl were not leaving and kept apologizing. We finally got...a table and Pat (the owner) sent over complimentary drinks! We ordered apps (Polenta fries and beef carpaccio) absolutely delicious. Mains were lamb chops and beef tenderloin. Both dishes were not small servings! You get your monies worth! And then we were told our desserts were on the house because we were so understanding! I have heard such good reviews about this place but I think the review shld be outstanding. I can’t wait to take my sister and our friends! Thank you Pat and Walter for such wonderful hospitality! I WILL BE BACK! Oh and Nick our server? Top notch!More

Back for a second time. Travelled 7 hours…made it a point to eat at this restaurant! From the moment we walked in, the hospitality was great! Pat and her staff are top notch. But it’s all about the food, right….and of course they knocked it...out of the park. Their appetizers, their pasta, their veal, their pizza….fantastic!!! You cannot go wrong. Spread the word…255 Alta Rossa is da bomb!More
