Rossini Italian Bistro Restaurant Review

: The husband and wife team that runs Rossini has operated in three locations in town. This outpost, with a more frequently changing menu, proves that the third time’s the charm. Featuring a glassed-in open kitchen, Rossini is smaller and much more handsome than any of the previous incarnations. Appetizers include a baked torta di granchio (crab) and an encore-worthy carpaccio Cipriani. A lunch serving of rigatoni rosati in a creamy tomato sauce with cubes of chicken breast had the ratio right one day --- but the dish lacked seasoning. Previous mains have included beautifully rendered amberjack and a farfalle di giorno (hope for pancetta, oyster mushrooms, and a cream sauce). Other offerings include a filetto ai noci with walnuts and Gorgonzola, a ravioli both stuffed and sauced with lobster, and dentice (snapper) in a vodka curry sauce. The Italian wine list provides a decent selection of bottles, but it’s seriously deficient in wines by the glass. At curtain call time, we applaud the mascarpone with fruit.
