Still the best Italian restaurant outside of Exeter, and the food & customer service is excellent. Better value if use your Taste Card on a Tues/Wed/Thurs, which is valid for all courses except of their board. The fish cakes with chutney & rocket is an excellent starter.

This restaurant is a little gem, the food was amazing and the staff really helpful. We would certainly eat there again and try other things on the menu. We don't eat meat and there was loads on the menu we could eat. Thank you very much for a fab time.

Four of us went to La Rosetta, without a booking, on a rainy Friday evening. We soon forgot the rain when we received a very warm welcome and offered a choice of 2 or 3 tables. We shared a couple of flatbreads with garlic and mozzarella, and I followed this with an excellent Spaghetti Carbonara - very creamy with plenty... More

Right on the main through road,La Rosetta is a surprisingly good neighborhood Italian find. We went on a Friday night, which we were told was atypically quiet, so the atmosphere was far from bustling. We opted for a glass of house wine, (driving) and shared a flatbread which was crisp and tasty. Mains were delicious, especially my mother's shrimp and... More

Had a meal on a Saturday evening, restaurant was busy but not packed, two waitresses working who easily coped with all diners. Foot was of a good standard and was hot. Nice atmosphere in the place. Seemed to be used by families, couples and friends

Menu authentic Italian with wide choice. My mozerella salad starter was fine but could perhaps have been more imaginatively laid out. My companions' crabcakes looked and apparently were delicious but accompanied by chutney which didn't seem a very good fit. My spaghetti carbonara was creamy but with rather too much cheese in the sauce making it very rich. My companions'... More

It has taken us many years to visit La Rosetta. the seating was a bit cramped, we all ordered off the specials menu which turned out to be great choices. House white to go with it, again good tasting. Tried to order sweet but gave up after several requests.
