    The food alone would make this restaurant a winner but the Rossetti family has gone out of their way to make customers feel welcome, with personal greetings upon seating and happy consultations about their bar specialties (my husband favors "Barrell-Aged Project #3") and dinner specials. All the pasta is, of course, hand-made and fresh but the way they prepare fish is too good to pass up - I've had both salmon and haddock that melt in my mouth while spreading the most delicious flavors. The caesar salad balances white anchovies and pecorino romano cheese perfectly. For dessert, their cannoli flight (pure, pistachio and chocolate ship) is light, fresh and crispy - you'll find none better in the North End. A spectacular North Shore newbie!

    Everything was outstanding from the time we walked in to when we left. Food was so delicious and highly reccommend this restaurant to everyone. The only issue is that they do not read the comment section of the Open Table reservation. I came here for my birthday and put a comment in that I was celebrating my birthday and it was not acknowledged. I made a second reservation a week later to celebrate my birthday ( I indicated it was a late birthday celebration) with my in-laws who were visiting from Florida and again no acknowledgement. this is not a complaint but restaurant should pay attention to comments left by guests who are celebrating a special occasion

    Went to dinner before a show at the auditorium. Restaurant was a pleasant surprise, wasn't expecting it to be as nice as it was. The service was impeccable and all wait staff were super attentive. The food was good, it wasn't the best I've had by any means but it was good. My only complaint was the noise level. I had read reviews about how loud it was but chalked that up to differences of opinions but boy....it was loud! There just isn't enough of anything to absorb the noise....and we sat in the back and not even near the bar.

    We went to Rosetti's for the first time and were impressed with both the food and drinks. Ask for a table in the back room if you like a quiet spot. We started with the appetizer gnocchi which a serious test of a restaurant. It was great! It's ricotta gnocchi - not potato - but not heavy or gummy - lives up to it's "pillow" character. Carpacchio was also great. Our entrees were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Oh - and the cocktails are very interesting with fresh herbs and house-made ingredients. We'll definitely be back!

    The decor of this restaurant is quite slick and modern, a little slice of Boston in Lynn. Our servers were very pleasant and attentive. The owner came over to check on us, to welcome us to his place, seemed genuinely interested in our patronage and attendance. It's too bad that the food was just okay, not bad, nothing to complain about, but certainly nothing to rave about.

    The only disappointment was it was my birthday and I put that right in the reservation when I booked it. I did not get offered a dessert nor did they know it was my birthday. I mentioned to waitress but she did not offer anything to me, however, I overheard the manager tell the table next to us that dessert was on him in celebration of the woman's birthday it was. Just a bit disappointed about that but food and service were excellent. This is gem in Lynn!!

    The food was delicious. I ate the steak mafioso and it was one of the most tender sirloins I have ever had, and I'm a steak lover. My wife's bolognese was equally as impressive. Their red sauce is phenomenal. The meals were also quite large, which was nice. The decor inside the restaurant was very clean/modern. Small restaurant, I would definitely suggest making reservations ahead of time. Also, one of the owners was present at all times in the dining room and conversing with his guests. Very nice. I will return to Rosetti's again.

    This was out second time dining at Rossetti's. Fabulous meal again! We started with the Calamari - a barometer my husband likes to use when judging a restaurant - they were excellent and the spicy marinara sauce was so good! Our entrees were "The Burger" that came with Parmesan Truffle Fries and a special of the evening - rack of lamb (a full rack!). My goodness, my mouth is water just thinking about this meal. The burger is unlike anything you've had; a dream with bacon and caramelized onions. The rack of lamb was bone sucking good. Cannot wait to go again!

    The food was excellent, flavorful, cooked marvelously, and generously portioned. But beyond the allure of the actual meal, it was very rewarding to see how caring and concerned the entire service staff was with our being more than content with the experience. The entire entourage of staff people were hospitable and helpful, beginning with the hostess to the table staff, the waitress, mixologist ( preferred title) who wanted to be certain the beverage was to my liking, and, finally, to Mr. Rossetti, who came from behind the kitchen area to the table, introducing himself with gratitude for our patronage and wanting to be certain of our evening's enjoyment.

    Just found this "new" to us restaurant in Lynn, great food, great service, fascinating menu - easy to park with a municipal lot across the street, chef came by the table to greet us as new customers. I had scampi, it was a huge serving and very tasty. Wife had eggplant parm appetizer and flatbread, both which she raved about. Will absolutely be returning!

    Rosetti's has been on our to do list and am I glad we finally made it. We went for our anniversary and for a final date before baby arrives. The food was good we had frutti di mare and sirloin steak entrees. We were so impressed when Bob Rosetti came to visit our table to check on our experience. Great food and environment. We're looking forward to return for a date night post baby.

    We had a great experience at this restaurant. Out table was ready when we got there 5 minutes before our reservations. The service was very good, the completely cleaned our table after apps, gave us clean utensils before our entrees came out. The food was very good, I decided to try "The Burger" and it was unbelievable. The beer was the coldest I've had anywhere. The owner came out and had a conversation with us and talked about how they made our meals and where the get the ingredients from. Definately a hot spot and a place to relax and have a great night out.

    Love the contemporary Italian food here - has become my local go to spot. Great for Lynn to have this restaurant and it seems they are doing very well. Great bar with creative mixed drinks and the food and especially the specials are consistently really good. My teenage daughter, who is quite picky with her food, will ask to go to this restaurant just for their gnocchi which she says are like little pillows in an amazing tomato sauce!

    We were surprised and delighted with this second location in Lynn. Upscale and modern and nothing like the beach location. Food was very good with a nice selection and specials to tempt the taste buds. The attention and service excellent. We arrived for an early supper around six on a Saturday evening and it was starting to get busy, by the time we left at around 7:30 it appeared to be filled to capacity. They do accept reservations so if you like a specific time suggest you book.

    Up front, the food was some of the best Italian cuisine I've ever had. The "mafiosi" steak was amazing, cooked exactly as I ordered. The antipasti was excellent also but there's where my problem started. I'm used to having my antipasti with a lot of bread and a side of salt-cured anchovies. Then I was told that the restaurant had NO salt-cured anchovies, only the vinegar cured white anchovies. When the owner saw I was upset, he actually went out and purchased some regular anchovies and gave them to me. But then despite repeatedly requesting the waitress bring more bread, she said someone else was responsible for that.
