We had higher expectations for this restaurant, especially given the awards and hype, but we found that it's just an 'okay' neighborhood restaurant. If we lived nearby, we'd visit once in a while for a regular weeknight meal, but not for a special night out - and not as travelers who had a city filled with amazing restaurants. On past... More

My friend and I were staying in Roma Norte, and we loved this restaurant. The vaulted ceilings and the birds painted on the wall are beautiful. The service is lovely. One night we went for desserts and the other night went back for dinner. They didn't mind just serving us desserts at one point. The breadsticks and bread are homemade.... More

Had heard a lot of good things about the restaurant but it could not really fulfill all our expectations. Certain dishes were of excellent quality (e.g. herb salad with Ricotta) but overall I don't get the theme of the restaurant. It had dishes from different style of cuisines (Italian - Mexican ..) but some of it did not work out... More

Overall, Rosetta is a lovely venue for a stylish evening out on the town. My main criticism is that the service should focus more on being friendly and welcoming, and less on trying to attain fine-dining standards. Their intentions were noble, but the service as a whole was needlessly fussy: constantly hovering, nudging our plates towards us, rearranging objects on... More

Rosetta is located in the trendy Colonia Roma. the ceilings and decor of the Restaurant are beautiful. the menu has many creative delicacies like the tuetano with capers and salt. (basically the os moelleux francais), all the breads are to die for. The artichoke sald was great and the pasta with morilles also excellent. For something different their hoja santa... More

...I have to say I prefer the food at their sister restaurant in Condesa. Food was good so I'm not necessarily putting it down but the price did not quite match up. Space is beautiful, service was attentive and, yes, I'm sure you're paying for the location on Colima but I would probably opt elsewhere.

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
