Our hotel recommended & booked the Rossini for us.

We were really pleased with it when we first arrived. It is attractive.

Unfortunately it was a very warm evening & the Rossini is not air conditioned & so the first problem was that most people did not want to sit inside.

We along with 2 other couples (both German I think) hovered by the front door of the restaurant as they tried to work out where they could find 3 outside tables.

A harassed woman staff member was doing her best to seat people but something clearly went wrong & she & an older male waiter had a very heated dispute that continued for sometime. it was not the best way to start the meal.

We were seated outside. A young male waiter was charming - the older guy grudging at best.

The outside seats were v comfortable the food was good. The wine by the glass excellent. The coffee was not what we'd ordered but ok. It wasn't worth arguing.

When the bill arrived we at least got a laugh - the older male waiter who had spoke zero english with us all evening & been less than helpful said very clearly leave a tip here.

... then I would write about the "Rossini" ... first I would like to write, the food was really good ... otherwise there would be a more worser rating ... the mixed appetizer plate was very good ... delicious squid salad, vitello tonnato , Etc ... main dishes were also good ... tuna steak ... we wanted to sit outside ... and although, we were the first guests .. they tried to maneuver us into it ... apparently no desire to go a longer way. ... and so it went on ... had me at the vertan and although the bottle was not yet opened, one was annoyed, which one had to leave again ... the waiters are in themselves rhetoric in nothing after .. are hectic ... and although only a few tables were occupied ... they seemed unfriendly and unconcentrated ... the bill fell like in a gourmet restaurant ... what the Rossini unfortunately is not ... a pity for the aftertaste ... Maybe in the future they will turn this off .. thank you

We had dinner at Rossini on the Mother's Day and our overall experience were very positive. The food, service and the wine list were all very good. We liked the comfort of the inner space, as well.

A wonderful surprise, a great delight, a true culinary oasis in Heidelberg, a student cheap-eats nightmare.
Scenic atmosphere, true italian style from decoration to waiters' outfits, decent Italian food, this place saved my life
