Oh Rosetta Deli & Bistro you have my heart

For Italian Manuel Tersigni, being a chef is in his blood – he grew up surrounded by food with his grandmother, a retired chef and restaurateur, cooking for him and teaching him how to make classic Italian dishes 👩‍🍳🍝

Manuel spent more than a decade honing his skills in high-end restaurants across Europe, including Rome’s ‘Per Me’ the 1 Michelin Star restaurant he opened in 2016 🧑‍🍳🌟

Luckily for us Manuel decided to open Rosetta in Mullumbimby to cook the food that is nostalgic to him: classic Italian dishes cooked as simply as possible to highlight high quality, seasonal ingredients. But to call his food simple doesn’t do it justice – Manuel elevates dishes and ingredients with expert execution and an excellent palate, and every dish on the Rosetta menu is exceptional 🙌♥️

Beef tartare served with polenta chips is tender and perfectly seasoned 🔥🔥 House made linguine served with sweet juicy prawns, lemon, chili & garlic is exceptional 🍝🦐 Fresh fish cooked Sicilian style with lemon & olive oil and served with crushed potatoes & cannellini is exquisite 🍋🐟 Chargrilled octopus is tender and super tasty served with the most perfect creamy mashed potato & kale 🐙🥔 Chocolate & almond caprese cake for dessert is an excellent way to finish your meal, especially paired with the delicious spiced pear sour cocktail 🍰🍸

Rosetta’s drinks menu is excellent with a solid wine list that changes regularly and incredible classic Italian cocktails including the barrel aged Negroni which is a must-try 🥃🍊

Rosetta is a family affair with members of Manuel’s extended Australian family working at the restaurant, and the warm service provided by the whole team makes Rosetta a joy to visit – cosy, welcoming and perfect for every occasion ♥️♥️
