Located in a working-class West Side neighbourhood, this family-run spot is owned by fine local drummer Tony Mangiullo and his mother, after whom the place is named. The schedule mixes local musicians (including a weekly jam hosted by Tony) and underground out-of-town acts with growing reputations. A full crowd makes Rosa’s seem cosy rather than congested, a sign of a good venue.
