Thought i was going to authentic Mexican place :)...but this place is great. Loved the decor and the vibe. Recommend the Burrata and the Truffle Ravioli in meat sauce. Bravo

'Don't fill up on bread,' I told myself as we were seated at a cozy two top last week at Rosetta. I'd been to the panaderia of the same name the previous morning and knew the danger: there'd be a plate of delicious bread coming, surely, at some point during the meal. Probably toward the beginning. Could I resist horking... More

This a "fine dining" where you don't need a reservation for dinner. In Mexico City, that tells you a lot. Most of the fine dining experience was there (good service, comfortable quiet room, extensive wine list, high prices) except the food. It sounds creative, looks good on the plate but tastes rather banal. Maybe a bad night? Given the reservation... More

Terrible service. Brought wine after we were done eating dinner. Food ok. Asked to please call taxi. Told 5 minute wait. Went outside in rain and were told they could not get a taxi due to the rain. Saw taxis around the corner and with assistance from our hotel promptly hailed a taxi with a pleasant driver.

At night hard to find. Never did see a sign for the restaurant. Very nice attentive staff. Menu hard to read. "Suggestions" before appetizers. Wine list very interesting. Portions were nice. We went their for interesting prepared food. Maybe we ordered wrong but the pasta with Italian sausage was bland and difficult to find the minced sausage. . Never did... More

They have focused on churning out quality dishes using the best available ingredients. Fabulous pastas, delectable breads, and desserts worth all the calories. Rosetta, I adore you!!

Rosetta is a relatively small, cosy restaurant. Its chef, Elena Reygadas, has been named the best female chef in Latin America. The food is absolutely incredible. Starting with the bread, it's amazingly good. We were four at the table and decided to order different things to try each others' plates and it was superb. It's very expensive and worth every...

When it comes to fine dining, there is a line between "too expensive" and "expensive but worth it". Rosetta is a VERY good restaurant, but it falls within the "too expensive" category; I felt cheated. Specially because they are next door of another fine dining restaurant that does fall within the "expensive but worth it" category.

If you are expecting a typical Italian restaurant with different kinds of pasta for antipasto, you will be disappointed. This is a mix of Italian and Mexican cuisine. Go for the fish or meats because their pasta is overcooked and there is not a big selection to choose from. It is an ok place, not outstanding. Their wine selection is... More
