My husband and I were in for the saturday before Valentine's Day, in which we had called a reservation ahead of time (good idea since they were packed for our 6:00 reservation). We each have visited RosaLuca's before with our newborn, and its nice to see that the whole place is very family friendly. For dinner we had the Trout... More

We have visited this restaurant a few times over the years with poor experiences but we decided to try again. Unfortunately this last visit was more of the same. I would call the food average. He liked his veal Milanese but my paste with broccoli rabe and sausage was not as good as our local Italian place. It was bland... More

My husband and I went to Rosaluca's for dinner and used a Groupon, which we were delighted we had. I had a stuffed artichoke and eggplant rollatini appetizers. My husband had shrimp risotto, All dishes were wonderful. They also give you homemade bread to dip in Rosemary olive oil and you can even take homemade sauce home. They are definitely... More

This is the best Italian restaurant in Hunterdon County. I eat here about once a month. I try to get something different every time and I've never had a bad meal. The food is always fresh and delicious. Very nice ambience. Some if my favorite things to get here are the oyster appetizers, pizzette appetizer, and linguini & clams in... More

We have passed this place many times usually early in the day but not around dinner time. I saw a Groupon and thought that it would be incentive to make plans to finally eat there. I had made a reservation in advance which was good since the restaurant in not that large. They sell jarred homemade sauce which you will... More

Everything was perfect from searing to dessert. Let's me start backward with a banana sorbet and a pote de chocolate. Shared among four of us as it was so good. The entrees are all Italian and are cooked to perfection. I had the salmon and was seated and seasoned perfectly. Wife had the eggplant and kids had the gnocchi. Each... More

We decided to try this place after living in the area for 17 years. We were enticed by a great deal that we found on groupon along with the reviews posted on trip advisor. To say the least, we were VERY disappointed with our dining experience. Our first impressions: 1. average aesthetics and ambiance (outdated but clean). 2. greeted by... More

Real Italian food. Delicious. Plentiful. Family atmosphere with what appears to be family photos on the walls. Try the fresh figs with Gorgonzola And prosciutto. I could have stopped my meal there and been in heaven. I decided for linguini and little neck clams. Beautifully played with what had to be a dozen clams around the outside of the plate... More

I went to Rosa Lucas on Saturday for dinner and it was GREAT. I love farm to table and organic local produce etc . Especially that they have their own garden 12 miles down the road. Fresh local trout was cooked perfectly. The side tomato salad tasted like it was picked that day! Everything was amazing and fresh. One of... More
