by Kika G Concheso

Rosa's: 425 N. Vineyard Ave., Ontario, CA (909) 937-1220. Which is really good. Opened in 1988, Rosa's has earned the reputation for the finest Italian cuisine served in elegant, intimate surroundings. Live piano music, authentic Italian entrees, excellent wine list, full bar. GAMBERETTI CON CARCIOFI & FUNGHI, FETTUCCINE GAMBERETTI CON TARTUFO, LINGUINE VONGOLE, CIOPPINO, AGNELLO CALABRESE, OSSO BUCO, LINGUINE DEL EMILIA ROMAGNA, POLLO CACCIATORE, PETTO DI POLLO FIORENTINO, FILET MIGNON AL BRANDY... Reservation are a MUST. I'm eating there on Thursday and Saturday. On Friday we have the "Runway Madness III"; Sunday is the "Indy Lights Award Banquet" and on Monday is the "CART Award Banquet". Diet? After the season is over. See you there! ;-) - Kika
