New Rosso Restaurant: Rosticceria

Friday, February 14th, 2014

rosticceriaA Biteclubber spotted some action at the former Sassafrass on Dutton Road in Santa Rosa, and it turns out the space will be a third Rosso restaurant concept, an Italian-style Rosticceria.
The forthcoming eatery will be open for breakfast, lunch and happy hour, featuring house baked pastries, breads, Roman pizzas, sliced meats, oysters, porchetta, espresso and a variety of sandwiches and appetizers. “It’s slow food fast,” said co-owner Kevin Cronin, who was inspired by the famous Peck in Milan and childhood memories of San Francisco’s Liguria Bakery.
Final details are still in the works, but expect a super casual walk-up bar, a small but well-curated wine and beer list (and lemonade bar) and a lively patio for after-work gatherings. So far, no dinner service is expected, and the space will be shared with Rosso’s expanding catering business. Opening this spring.

  1. how slow food relates to Peck and Liguria bakery is an absolute mystery to me

  2. Did I hear porchetta? So I don’t have to go all the way to SF Farmer’s Market for a good porchetta sandwich at Roli Roti. Also Rosso makes the best piadine!
    The best pizza in town!!!

  3. Cant wait to try.

  4. Loved the wisteria covered patio when it was Sassafras, it was a shame it was torn down. Looking forward to lunchy locale, especially if/when they redo the patio.

  5. This sounds like a wonderful concept. Can’t wait. Keep us posted.

  6. Oh yes please!
