Meet the team

Our talents and experience are diverse, but at Rosa, we’re united by one thing: an overarching passion for Italian food, wine, and hospitality.

We believe that no dish can be better than its ingredients and that the best ingredients are usually local.

It is the best of coincidences that good food choices – those that are good for our land and people, for the environment, for the body and mind – are also delicious and enjoyable.
