UPDATE: This restaurant is now closed.
Roseville Cozinha has been on my to-do list after reading Kirk’s post and seeing photos on my Instagram feed. The new restaurant located in Liberty Station is a fish to fork eatery inspired by the Portuguese and Italian fishing immigrants.
Salt Cod Fritters
arugula & lemon aioli
The fritters were quite tasty. The inside stuffing reminded me of mashed potatoes with bits of cod. They were a tad too salty, but the arugula helped balance out the salt. I also enjoyed the lemon aioli sauce.
fresh mozzarella, tomato, evoo, sweet basil & sea salt
The restaurant has a wood fire oven pizza so we were definitely curious to try the pizzas. The pizza crust needed a little bit longer in the oven in my opinion as it was mostly soft and not yet crunchy. Even the appearance appeared too pale. We enjoyed the tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella, I just wish the dough was a bit crisper.
local fish, shrimp, scallops, mussels & clams
This was quite hearty; perfect for a cold day. The broth has a little bit of a spicy kick and it’s filled with various seafood. The grilled bread tasted great dipped in the broth.
chiles, garlic & red wine vinegar
Sauteed broccolini with bits of hot red pepper. This was simple but tasty.
The servers and owner were quite friendly, some of the nicest we’ve come across in a while. While it wasn’t a spectacular meal, we had a nice time here and want to explore more of the menu. You can find the full menu here. I also took pictures of the happy hour and dessert menu.
