We had great food in Mexico except for this time. The food was not very good, has nothing to do with italian food. There are much better restaurants then this where you can find delicious food. The staff was friendly and the wine was very good but thats it.

Rosetta is a most when visiting this city, especially if you are around the Roma area. The restaurant is owned by the well known Mexican chef Elena Reygadas and she proposes a complex offering of international cuisine with local elements. Rosetta is located in an old-style colonial house, which gives this special vibe that characterizes must of the restaurants in... More

We had a very good dinner in the tables that were outside. Very good pasta, freshly made with an excellent ragu. Do recommend you go there

Amazing food, Mexican flavors, perfect combinations, lovely environment. It's not cheap, but it's totally worth it, lots of Mexican and not comercial list of wines.

I've since moved away from Mexico City but Rosetta is still my favorite restaurant and my visit in January did not disappoint! The service was excellent, the wine menu is wonderful, and the food was so, so good. My favorites are the beet salad and the bread (lolz) and the ravioli. The atmosphere is so so beautiful and I will... More

What a surprise this restaurant was. Every dish a subtle combination of flavors. The fennel and Citrix's salad was refreshing; the charred eggplant appetizer was an amazing combination of flavors and textures like nothing I have tasted. The sea bass roasted in salt and herbs was moist and flavorful, and the simple roasted "pollito" (young chicken) was perfect: moist on... More

I love this place, however I did not find the menu so attractive the last two times I went. Not one pasta dish sounded appealing and the fish was ok but not spectacular.

Weird menu, that varies by seasons. This time it included nouveau Mexican, Italian, Sea Food, Jewish and more. Run by a chef distinguished as the best femenine chef of Latinamerica in 2004, really dissapointed me. My beetroot salad, had only a few pieces of beetroot! The (non-meat) minestrone was not tastful, and the pasta with chile de árbol was simply... More

Settled in the fashionable neighbourhood of Roma in Mexico City , this less than authentic Italian restaurant is the perfect setting for a Romantic night out. A beautiful old 3 story house has been converted into a elegant candlelit restaurant with small but cozy dining rooms. The food is not the best Italian I've had but it's ok,the atmosphere is...

I visited last Thursday December 15 with my wife and the staff had me waiting for more than an hour (wait that I respectfully accepted) when we noticed that they started giving tables to people that arrived to the restaurant after us, which was very unjust and disrespectful to us. When we pointed out such fact, the staff in charge... More
