Wow! Fresh imported meats and cheeses, excellent wines, small plates to die for. We will be back! Highly recommended by a foodie.

Salumeria Rosi ? June 28, 2010

Sette Fagioli
Some say bean salads are boring. I am sympathetic: I still think vanilla ice cream is boring and will give a look of pity (or contempt) to anyone who orders vanilla ice cream over 20 other interesting flavors in an ice cream shop. But sette fagioli mean ""seven beans"" Please, does it sound boring to you? How about when these seven little and not so little guys (one is just the size and shape of the first joint of my thumb) are perfectly seasoned with onions and herbs? Besides, you need your vegetables, right? Vegetables are not a common commodity at a salumeria, OK? So, eat your beans. See the picture? I ate mine.

Il Parmacotto; Prosciutto San Daniele; Finocchiona

Let me start with finocchiona, this is a seriously good salume (or is it ""salumi"" - do you count by the slice or by the stick?). I tend to avoid salami because I am a snob. Why would anyone choose salami over, let's say, Prosciutto di Parma? Why would you eat a piece of a hard and dry sausage with globs of fats all over it? The answer: Because it is delicious. Fennel (I am sure this word is featured somewhere in ""finocchiona"") mellows out the gaminess of this salame and leaves a nice, subtle aftertaste.
Il parmacotto is cooked ham. A bit too thinly sliced for my taste. I would have liked a thicker slice as this ham was very tender. A quarter-inch slice would allow the taste of the meat to truly come out. Otherwise, we just gobbled it up.
Prosciutto San Daniele is good but not memorable.

Porchetta Caprese

Have you ever had a good Cuban sandwich? Piles of ham, roast pork, pickles, mustard and whatever little twist they add on (no mayo on mine, please) then grilled? Simple but so delicious... Yes, this posting is at the right place under Salumeria Rosi; No, I am not reviewing a Cuban sandwich. This porchetta caprese made me very sad because it made me dream of a good Cuban sandwich, only to wake me up with this Italian impostor in front of me. Shouldn't be too harsh, but can I just have some of the earlier il parmacotta and some sliced asiago and I will make my own grilled sandwich?

Couldn't be more disappointing

We got there thinking that we're going to have a great dinner, when we saw the smallest of the portions (1 beat for 5 $ and 2 paperthin slices of cheese that the chef has to choose for you plus a coffee spoon of blue cheese, minus the espresso, for 15 $) we got up and went starving for dinner somewhere else...
We felt insulted and ripped off.
The only good experience the service being nice in spite of forseeing what probably is usual to them and the fact that even being saturday night we did not have to wait because it was, of course, half empty.
Tell di owner not to be so greedy and show the chef what a real ""assaggino"" looks like in Italy.
Misery brings itself misery.

Good food Bad energy

The food is very good but overpriced considering that they want to move you out like you are in a fast food restaurant. The owner has to respect the customer , he seems to have contempt for his clientele. Also, he thinks that it is enough for a New Yorker to eat a piece of prosciutto ( paying $80) and be satisfied.

A culinary and financial disappointment

Great expectations dashed. Over crowed, noisy, and ridiculously over priced. $9.00 for a tablespoon of calamari is too much. Cooking and flavors were not exactly up to Italy's high standards. The lamb shank was over cooked, the lasagna was dry and pathetic. All in all a great deal of fuss for very little satisfaction. The staff was very attentive but alas the food was not a match.

worst food EVER rip off

Well I am so pleased that I am the first to write a review.

...The animals at the zoo get more ""snacks"" (and that?s being kind) than humans at Salumeria Rosi Parmacotto. I am no stranger to Italian food as I have traveled there many times and all over?so I kinda know what im talking about.

First, The place is extremely small, fits about 20 people...THE INTERIOR is black with a cascade of plaster shells running from the ceiling down to and down onto the glass walls...delightful?Tony soprano and Liberace would fit in very well here, But was still ok and ok with the 30min wait with nowhere to sit the bar that sit 4 was full, so we wait and wait (we also had the pleasure of having an elderly cane carrying couple who did nothing but bark, yelp and b#$@hing till the staff could no longer take it and took care of them even thou we were there first!.... NIGHTMARE! Lucky us we got to sit right next to them it was the beginning of an afternoon not to be forgotten.

The FOOD. So we order lasagna with a bechamel was AWEFUL! For $8 it was a mere 2-inch by 2-inch square of serious disappointment, burnt, dry, and NO bechamel sauce. Ding ding round two was the arrival of the prosciutto San Danielle...a plate of FAT zero meat, but wait it gets better we ordered spare ribs that was nothing short of spare...1 small rib for 4 people, what a joke. The baby squid (table spoon and a half worth) was tasteless like a ceviche prepared in dish water, then a tablespoon of gorgonzola with two candied walnuts WOW lucky us, the lamb shank the best dish and the best ""tapas"" size...We couldn?t get enough bread.... so what was the total cost you ask?????? Well all the dishes I mentioned and 5 beers drum roll...$97 (without tip)!!!!!! I left p@$$ed and hungry!!! I feel better now, thanks for reading, eat here if you want to hear the little voice in your head say...""are you serious! YOU IDIOT!!!!!"" I know that?s what it was saying to me...

A lot of hype only to lead to disappointment

Was expecting so much more but was just below average. After friends have visited Rosi we couldn't wait to try it. After trying to walk in one night (with no tables available) we made reservations for tonight. The meal started great with their assortment of cured meats. We both had the arugula salad which was very simple but also very good. We couldn't wait for the rest. Unfortunately the rest was just not very good. The brisket was cooked to perfection but lacked any type of seasoning (was like baby food), the cipolline was totally overpowering, the rigatoni tasted like a bowl of salt (yes it is made with cured meat but it tasted like the red sauce was sea water), finally the rib (yes the rib...only one tiny rib) was also bland and just disappointing. We left hungry and disappointed. The place is a great idea and has so much potential but was just so under par. Go for the bar, drink some wine, and eat some meat but stay away from the dinner you will wish you spent your money some where else.

RUDE hostesses ruined a potentially great experience

First of all, let me begin by saying that I'm SO glad this place opened up in our neighborhood. The food is truly fantastic and the atmosphere cozy. The food was excellent. However, the RUDE and inexperienced hostesses really ruined the experience for us. We arrived and were told by the (non-italian speaking)hostess, ""we have nothing right now"", Period, end of story. Ummm...ok. So I inquired, can we at least put our name in?? Like any other restaurant in NYC that is busy at 7:45 on a Sat. night we expect to wait. She looks confused....goes away and comes back, puts our name in. 15 minutes later, they tell us they have a table by the front window. Great, we'll take it. We sit down and before we're even done with our first course, they're telling everyone who walks in that it will just be a minute before our table is ready and we're almost done. Huh?? We just sat down! This place is all about small plates that are ordered in several courses. I have a full glass of wine and we plan on having more food plus dessert. Through the rest of our meal, they hover over us constantly, and continue telling people waiting our table will be available in just a minute. Talk about making people feel uncomfortable and unwanted! I have worked in the restaurant biz and this was ridiculous. Tell people when we're finishing our dessert and coffee that our table is ""almost available"", We felt put on the spot and rushed. As a New Yorker, I understand that places are busy, but these hostesses need to be significantly better trained or fired.
