I had been more than 15 years since the last time I went to El Rosal. Last night my wife and I crave for a traditional italian pizza, nothing elaborate or commercial, so we decided to give El Rosal a try, and I was nice...to find the place with some modern touches but without straying from tradition. The service was excellent and the pizza was delightful trip in memory lane. I made me remember of years gone past from times when a pizza was simple and delicious. Will return soon for more.More

The food is good. Pasta, pizza. I am not a big fan of Italian food so am hesitant to comment but we've eaten here several times and have found El Rosal to be a quiet oasis in the city with excellent service and a nice...atmosphere. Please note we are usually there for lunch and it might be more crowded in the evening. My husband enjoys the various pasta dishes, I've been told by others that the lasagne is very good and I've enjoyed both the pizza and the ravioli.More

Cozy ambiance, excellent for family. Home made pasta is outstanding but wine list limited. The only problem is not air conditioning in the premises.

I went to this place by a recommendation of a friend, and he was right: the food here is excellent! You can experience all the flavors of the original Italian cuisine.

Had not been here for about 20 years, but I'm really glad they continue serving one of the best pasta in San Salvador. The place is located in a nice zone, and the restaurant is clean, nicely illuminated and ample. No overcrowding which is nice...for me. Also, it is quiet, just some ambient music that allows for conversation. Love that too. The food is traditional italian, with very nice varieties of pasta, freshly baked pizza, salads, breaded meat with parmesan cheese, etcétera. Portions are generous too, will leave you satisfied, but not overwhelmed. Great! Service is nice and fast, very tratidional in the aspect that waitresses are of the silent type, no fuss or awkward questions. Actually I liked that. Prices are in the upper tier for San Salvador, so expect to pay about USD 13.00 per pasta plate, and more for meat. Drinks are expensive. Pizza, however is a great value for the price and size. Paid around 70.00 for a dinner for four. Overall, this is a great place to have comfort food, arrived here confident that this was one of the best pasta places in San Salvador, and was not dissapointed. Recommended even if a bit expensive.More
