Join the Family: Spotlight on Rosmarino

When people come and visit the restaurant, we want them to feel like they’re being welcomed into our family home. And, of course, when you have guests visit, you want them to be looked after and properly fed and watered

Ideally located on Abbeydale Road, the heart of Sheffield’s independent food scene, family-run restaurant Rosmarino has been treating customers to authentic Italian dishes and warm hospitality since opening its doors earlier this year.

Step inside and you’ll be welcomed into “the home” of husband-and-wife team Lidia and Abdellatif, two passionate individuals who combine brilliantly as a team instilled with a deep passion for hospitality and cooking. 

Lidia, who looks after front of house, was immersed into restaurant hospitality from an early age. Her Italian family ran the popular Sharrow Vale restaurant La Terazza for over twenty years, providing decades of hospitality experience and invaluable knowledge of how to create a friendly, inviting atmosphere for customers.

Abdel was born and raised in Casablanca, the culinary heart of Morocco. Surrounded by a family of cooks, he initially worked as a pastry chef and trained in classical French cuisine, but later found a deep love for Italian cooking. He came to Sheffield 15 years ago to partner with his brother, who’d built up a vast array of experience working in restaurants at high-end Italian hotels, and together they successfully ran kitchens in Sheffield before opening Olive, a highly-rated Mediterranean restaurant on Ecclesall Road.

After getting married last year, the duo eventually decided on getting somewhere to call their own, a restaurant where they could combine their mutual affection for hearty Italian dishes in a relaxed setting. Since they secured premises at 312 Abbeydale Road, Lidia tells us that it’s been the “apple of their eye.”

When asked to sum up the restaurant’s ethos, she explained: “It’s in a great location surrounded by independent businesses. We aim to keep it as family-orientated as we can, so when people come and visit the restaurant, we want them to feel like they’re being welcomed into our family home. And, of course, when you have guests visit, you want them to be looked after and properly fed and watered!

“Everything we make is inspired by authentic Italian cuisine – with a few unique twists. There are plenty of fresh, hearty pasta dishes alongside traditional meat and seafood dishes. We care deeply about what we do; if you don’t care, it’s not worth it. We’re always looking forward to welcoming new guests and making sure they feel looked after.”
