New Rosso Restaurant: Rosticceria

A third restaurant for the Rosso Pizzeria crew

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. 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!!!

  2. 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.
