We were actually quite surprised by the high ratings this place has it was ok but not great. It was also overpriced and the waitress got my dessert order wrong and then tried to argue that I didn’t order what I actually did. She needs to learn the menu and listen. We won’t be back!
This was our second time there and they did not disappoint. We started with calamari again and it was as good this time. I had the cannelloni this time and it was wonderful. I had extended family with me so we were a group of 6, everyone had a different entree and all were very good. My niece had gluten free pasta and said it was also very good. She’s been gluten free for years and has a lot of pasta meals to compare it to (anyone who’s eats gluten free knows not all gluten free foods taste good). We’re looking forward to our next visit!
Food = excellent. We started with the fried calamari, tender and delicious. Salads were fresh, crisp, and dressings were flavorful. My husband had the veal osso bucco and said it was tender and tasted great. I had the linguini and clams – the clams were cooked perfectly, as was the pasta. It was delicious. My husband had the gelato, which I of course tasted, and it was rich and decadent as gelato should be. I had the panna cotta with berries sauce – I was in heaven! We can’t wait to go back!
Chef Dario never fails to make every meal delicious! Everything from appetizers to entrees to desserts all great every time! Great wine list too, from all over Italy, totally recommend.
This was our first visit to this restaurant but definitely will not be our last. Exceptional food, service and ambiance.
GREAT experience. Had not been to RTG for some time (thank you COVID), and we both wondered why!!! The food was superb, the service was excellent. This is a neighborhood gem that should not be missed.
Lovely ambiance, excellent service and delicious food. A little bit pricey but nice sized portion.
Our meal and service were great. Had a great wine list, delicious food and desserts.
Good food and service
Not your typical chain "Italian", but rather a home cooked meal for family! Our party of 3 each had different entres and each was outstanding. From the Ravioli all'astice to the Coscia di Maiale Arrosto, to the evening special of shrimp, clams, fish, calamari, octopus in a lightly spicy tomato sauce Dario Leo did a superb job of making each meal a delight for the eyes and taste buds. We won't mention the desserts - I could have made a meal off of those!
6 friends having dinner, catching up. Great service, comfortable seating and ambiance . Everyone enjoyed their meal and wine!
Wonderful. Darius is an outstanding chef. The waitstaff is very knowledgeable. It’s a warm an inviting atmosphere
My wife and I were traveling north from the airport In Fort Myers and we decided to stop for dinner. We discovered Rossini Trattoria Gastronomica and we're glad we did. Upon arriving we were seated immediately and our server was very prompt in arriving at our table. After reviewing the wine list I ordered a bottle of Italian Chardonnay which was very nice. for our entrees my wife ordered a Mushroom Ravioli and I ordered Veal Scaloppini and a Caesar Salad to start. The salad was very fresh and quite tasty. Soon thereafter our entrees were delivered to our table abd we were very happy with out choices. My wife said the Mushroom Ravioli was to die for and my veal was delicious as well. Our server provided great service throughout the meal and we left the restaurant very satisfied. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking good Italian food.
Best authentic Italian food, you feel like family when your there, our waitress was great, anything you try at this place, is always amazing, chef Dario is fantastic, I really recommend this restaurant if you love Italian food!
Definitely our favorite place to go for special occasions! The staff is so accommodating. The food is delicious!
We love the place! Food is awesome
Service is fantastic the chef/owner greet you.
The menu is very limited and the food is fair, at best. It may be a 4 in Englewood but it would rate a 1 or 2 in Sarasota. The waitress hovered over our meal ,interrupted our conversation repeatedly, and dressed horribly--where did Rossini find her?
Excellent Food and Service. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We will be regularly dining at this establishment from now on.
The food is amazing as always. One of the best Italian restaurants in the area.
My husband and I celebrated my birthday last night. I booked this reservation on a whim. Our first time eating here and it was excellent! All around... Seated us early, attentive and charming waiter, chicken parmesan was the best I've had and the burrata salad was a wise choice(by our waiter).
We will be going back!
Great food and very good service.
Staff was very friendly and polite.
This is best authentic Italian restaurant,great food as always, Dario and his wife are so nice, it was our anniversary and they surprised us with complementary glass of champagne, everyone there makes feel
Like family.totally recommend this place.
Food was delicious, service was great and very nice ambiance. Don’t let the outside deter you from this dining experience
I read the reviews on Yelp and this restaurant was as good as everyone said. We had bruschetta, calamari, Caesar salad, lobster ravioli and eggplant. All was excellent! And they take reservations!
Excellent across the board. Location on Murdock Circle is “unique”. Don’t judge a book by its cover. If this restaurant were in downtown Punta Gorda it would be mobbed every night.
This is the best authentic Italian restaurant in all of Florida, I’ve been to many restaurants out here but there all hit and miss, this one you always get a great meal Chef Dario is a magnificent cook, the service is fantastic! The atmosphere fantastic you feel like your back home in Italy. I definitely recommend try this place you will be going back.
Always a great experience at Rossini’s! Mauricio was off for the evening so we missed his guitar playing and singing especially belting out high c’s on operatic arias.
Authentic Italian dining. Great appetizers and main dishes. Very attentive service and everyone was so friendly and solicitous. A little pricey but you won't be disappointed
A very relaxing and memorable get together with elderly friends. Everyone loved their selection of food and the service was outstanding! The best Italian food in Charlotte County!
A small, somewhat sparse restaurant. They have a limited menu. The food was excellent, as was the service.
Lovely evening ~ melt in your mouth food. Love this place!
Slow night, only a few diners. All as expected. Will be back - and often
Chef Dario is an amazing cook! We have never had a bad meal here! The tomatoes sauce on my eggplant Parmesan was so delicious you can tell it’s all homemade, nothing is out the the can, my husband had chicken parmigiana and fettuccine with marinara sauce amazing, Dario and his wife are so nice they come around to make sure everything is just right, and it’s always better than alright!totally recommend this place food is amazing!
The best chef in Florida. Excellent service. Outstanding wine menu. Ambiance, perfect.
Very nice, quaint restaurant with fabulous food and service. The menu may seem a little pricy, but the quality of the food and the excellent, friendly service makes it worth the price. Highly recommended for couples and families. The resturant is small and the parking is somewhat limited, so make a reservation and park across the street at the mall.
First time we’d come again, we like supporting small family owned n operated restaurants
We had an excellent meal. Service was great. Warm, friendly atmosphere. Will definitely return
Loved this place chef Dario is a fantastic chef! Great atmosphere, it didn’t matter that Maurice was not there because without Dario you don’t have the great food he’s the real star of restaurant! Portions were very good size, truly exceptional!
We were there for our anniversary. Very personal service. Good food. We will definitely be back. Maurizio, the owner meets you at the door, seats you , waits tables , and sang “the first time ever I saw your face “ in English and Italian. Great time.
We always enjoy the food here. The owner is very friendly and pleasant.
