We had dinner here on Friday night. The setting is beautiful. My husband and I have been keen to try Rossini's for a while, but it sadly didn't live up to our expectations. We arrived for our booking at 8.30pm and were seated. The staff were very friendly as we arrived. We waited about 20 mins before being offered a... More

We had a wonderful lunch last Saturday at Rossini Restaurant. I personally found the staff very attentive and polite, Maurizio the owner came straight over and introduced himself and offered us some drinks to start. The food was lovely as was the setting overlooking the Thames. We did book our chosen table in advance as we wanted to be sat... More

Rossini is a relatively new Italian restaurant on the site of the old Leatherne Bottel on the banks of the Thames near Goring. The conservatory dining room is pleasingly light and open, with sufficient distance between tables to allow conversation without being overheard, or the need to shout. It must be a brilliant place to eat in the Summer where... More

In spite of booking a table for a specific time, it took them over one hour and a half to bring the first course. The food was rather nice but there were three errors in the bill which meant that they overcharged us. On a sunny day this is a great location but check your bill carefully before you pay.

Went here yesterday in a party of 23 for a birthday celebration and had a great time. The location is to die for. The views over the Thames arts just majestic. The decor and settings are both very nice and the atmosphere is very relaxing. We had a set menu so I can't comment on the normal menu. But the... More

I have vivid memories of visiting this restaurant several years ago and it being an amazing gastronomical experience, This occasion was sadly far from that. The food was okay, the staff were very presentable and the table linen immaculate however the list of negatives far outweighs! Filthy windowsill which would only take a quick wipe (I know I wasn't eating... More

The Good: Lovely location, pleasant and friendly staff and comfortable restaurant. The Less Good: Service rather slow and this on a far from busy Thursday lunchtime. I suspect that the problem was with the kitchen. The quality of the food was pretty mixed - overall I would say it was quite acceptable but could so easily have been much better... More

Service very. Poor. Waited 30 mins for a menu. Eventually drink order taken by a youngster whose understanding of English was questionable. Asked for white wine and got red. Amuse Bouche described in an earlier review was tepid and tasteless. So was veal escalope. All vegetables are extra which makes main course expensive, especially for the poor to moderate quality...
