"There is absolutely no substitute for the best. Good food cannot be made of inferior ingredients masked with high flavor. It is true thrift to use the best ingredients available and to waste nothing." - James Beard

Our Story

Born into the love of fine wines and delicious food, Rosa's Italian Restaurant has become the premiere location for fine dining in Porterville, CA. It all started in 1983 when John & Marlene Giglio started a business venture. Today their grandkids, Jason & Shannon live out the legacy. 

We are dedicated to offering only the finest and freshest foods. We have taken great care in assembling a team of only the best staff, in experienced kitchen, dining, and garden staff. 


Come and taste the experience for yourself.
