    Rocco and the Team @ Bar Rosella never fail to disappoint. Beautiful food, seasonal fresh produce and superb wines. It doesn't get better than that.

    Cosy Italian restaurant with small but interesting menu; enjoyed the house made baccalà which one doesn't often see on menus. Excellent grilled fish. Look forward to returning. RB

    The wonderful thing about this restaurant is that indefinable balance they have between familiarity and service of the highest quality supported by amazing food and a wine selection of the finest quality. Incredible quality and value for money.

    What a really lovely atmosphere! A perfect location for a romantic dinner for two. In a quiet street but also really close to all the action in Collingwood. Highly recommended.

    The menu largely featured pasta dishes so I imagine it’s their hero dish and prices reflect that view. However the portion sizes were tiny and without much else to order, it’s very disappointing, I would understand if the idea was pasta as an entree but it’s not. It took over an hour to get our meals so we were even more disappointed. Then when the Bill cane it was on an iPad with the staff member holding it and really not conducive to checking a bill so I didn’t properly. They offered to email it and there was a mistake but too late to do anything about really, we are saddened to say we won’t go back despite Rocco and food being lovely; too expensive, really nowhere enough and slow service which ok a week night might be justifiable but ends up meeting we all went home tired and hungry.

    Nice quiet Italian restaurant located in Collingwood on the quieter side. Had the beef ragu pasta, requested no cheese as I don't eat dairy but could taste cheese that may be pre mixed in the sauce. Anchovies with bread wasn't bad but got too salty once bread ran out, did receive a top up of bread. Dessert panacotta was probably the highlight.

    It was a just average experience and doesn't meet my expectation unfortunately. All the meal we ordered small considering the price and not that great quality. Not much variety in the menu either. Wouldn't come back to pay the full price.

    Best pasta we have had in a long time. Fresh thoughtful ingredients were perfectly presented. Space is minimalist in an old industrial building

    Exceptional service which went above and beyond what we could have expected. The food was authentic and simple but made from high quality ingredients. The owner made us feel welcome at once and on finding out we were celebrating a birthday was kind enough to bring us out an excellent tiramisu to share. Would highly recommend Rosella and will definitely be coming back, thanks for a wonderful night!

    Flavour of food was nice. Serving size of mains were quite small, you really need to order entree to be full. The pasta didn't seem to be handmade.

    Really lovely place, amazing food, great service, would come again. The pasta dishes were very tasty and the drinks were good too, we sat outside which was so nice in the sun, and it was quiet at lunch

    Overall nice atmosphere and great fresh produce for authentic food. Service was a little slow for an early dinner slot but the food was amazing. Accommodating of dietary requests were appreciated. Could increase options for wines by the glass and offer a better price range.

    Great food. Been here twice and the first night was a quiet evening at the start of restaurants opening. Second time (tonight), a Monday night and really busy. Food was fantastic both nights. Service was great too. Well done! Thought the meal wouldn’t be as great given how busy it was. Will be returning. Thank you for a great meal!

    It was our first time we went to Rosella. The food and the service was amazing. No wonder it is so popular! I would like to recommend it to my friends.
