Rosalina’s Kitchen on Hamilton Street in Worcester has an atmosphere and menu that brings together authentic meals with a neighborhood energy.
When my dish arrived, two large, lightly breaded chicken breasts topped with mozzarella cheese sat atop a generous portion of al dente pasta. The breading was flavorful with a hint of fresh basil and the chicken was cooked to perfection, crispy on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. The homemade sauce had the heat I had asked for but also was rich in traditional flavor.
Funny how you see things all the time and never really see them. This was the case for Rosalina’s Kitchen. My wife and I have lived in the Hamilton Hill area for many years now and had driven by Rosalina’s Kitchen almost daily. Never did we think to stop and try it. And if it wasn’t…
The chicken was moist and perfectly fried without feeling heavy while the eggplant was tender and flavorful. The sauce was a simple marinara with a bright tomato flavor. It was well balanced without being overly sweet or acidic.
After that first bite and realization that this may be the best ravioli I’ve ever had, I knew I had to take a second bite and be sure my first reaction was not just about the delight of finding something different.
