So what’s not to like!
We were there to celebrate my niece’s birthday and were a group of 8, 3 of which were the grandparents who are in their 70s. One of the presents niece got was a box of Cadbury’s that nanna gave her. We all ordered starters and mains.. then some of us started munching on the chocolate. All was fine and the 2 waiters that served us were nice and friendly and made no comment about the chocolate. Then right after we have ordered our desserts, the female owner barged in and told my niece off for eating the chocolate. It would have been fine if she’d asked nicely instead of ‘excuse me no outside food allowed here’! It wasn’t like we bought cooked food from other restaurant or something. Ironic how they allow people to bring a cake if it’s a birthday, which of course mean they then won’t be spending any money on desserts. We have ordered desserts for god’s sake! So what’ if my niece wants to munch on her birthday chocolate? Needless to say it ruined the evening for us. Seriously not impressed.
The first time I went with my mother who is vegetarian, there wasn’t much to choose from and the wait staff and chef went out of their way to make her something delicious, they are very accommodating with any dietary requirement.
In fact the next time we dined in, the wait staff remembered us and made a point of telling us they had adjusted their menu and added more vegetarian options, we were blown away.
Will definitely be back, is great to finally have somewhere in west Auckland that is value for money.
Well done Tammy and Marcio you have nailed this one spot on!
Even though it was an extremely busy Saturday night the staff kept smiles on their faces and made sure that we had everything we required. Thanks to all for a wonderful evening, to celebrate an anniversary.It was cold and rainy outside but inside was warm and and cheerful.
The food was enjoyable and really, we got what we paid for. Nice to experience something like this in Glen Eden. Good food & service is hard to find.
We returned and had an even better experience than the excellent one previously. Our booking was for 6:30 and we didn’t leave till 8:45
The attention to detail like food presentation is superb. Large white plates and bowls are decorated with luscious Italian food.
Someone had a birthday and the whole restaurant erupted into Happy Birthday for them. The atmosphere here is terrific.
Four adults had a good wide selection of courses and our bill came to around $190.
La Rosa has become Glen Eden, no West Auckland’s jewel in the crown. People know it too. A couple had to be turned away because they didn’t have a booking…
Food Presentation: 12/10
Value for $$ 10/10
We are very fussy regarding where we eat and I must say it is awesome to finally have a nice place to eat out west.
Service was great (top service from our waiter, although a little hard to understand, she was very friendly and not over the top). Food was excellent . I think this is the kind of place you have to go to yourself and find out about….. We will be back without a doubt.
We have dined here twice and had numerous takeaways. My partner and I both love this place. The food is fresh, delicious and authentic, we wouldn’t go anywhere else for Italian now! I am gluten free and they were able to cater for me perfectly! I think they are starting to know us now! The staff are very friendly and helpful It does get very busy as it’s only small, so it pays to book! Really well priced also. Love this place, can’t wait to go back again!
The staff were nice and we were advised of the wait.
I would go back again, however if it was a special occasion with lots of people make sure too book early as this was too late.
The food was excellent ~ the service was brilliant and the ambiance ~ very Italiano.
Great to have such a good restaurant in Glen Eden.
First time visitors ~ we are booked in tonight – Yay!
First time visitors and will definitely go again
