    Everything at Rossetti Restaurant was wonderful. If you're in to martinis, I highly recommend the Autumn Elixir...it's like autumn in a glass! The specialty drinks are all very interesting and delicious. Everything from the bread to the appetizer to the entrees to the dessert and coffee was just delicious. We always feel like we receive special treatment when we're there. Laura, our waitress, was very attentive even though she was busy. And Chris, the general manager, stopped by our table to talk beer with hubby. We love it there and hope to be back soon.

  • Top notch addition to the restaurant scene in Lynn
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    This beautiful year old restaurant deserves its popularity--reservations are a must. The transformation of a storefront factory in downtown Lynn is stunning and sophisticated. The large front dining room holds a beautifully appointed, busy bar but bar traffic does not intrude on the dining ambiance. A second smaller room is even quieter, with an appealing gas fireplace. The food is quite good, basic Italian, well prepared, though I sense the chefs have the talent for a more challenging menu. Servers are very attentive and welcoming, and management deserves credit for hiring locally . The wine list is small but good and reasonably priced--as is the menu. I was glad to see 8 or 9 of the less expensive vintages served by the glass, but they would attract more wine drinkers by pricing those a $ or two less and adding more expensive wines available by the glass. I also suggest they use table cloths, at least in the back dining room; the otherwise high quality decor deserves it. There is a growing number of interesting restaurants near Central Square in Lynn--Rosetti is a welcome addition--whose owners would be smart to coordinate promotion and parking.

    My partner and I enjoyed a candle lit dinner in a nice corner table. First off the place is beautiful with nice gray walls and abstract art hanging with a nice bar placed in the middle of the restaurant . Service was great. We ordered the bolognease and chickenparm and a couple glasses of wine both white and red. The food comes out very fast I assume do to the mini army they have you can watch cook through the open kitchen. Can I just say it was all FABOLOUS!! The chef comes out and mingles with the floor. It was overall a great experience, it's the type of place when you leave you are planning your next dinner there.

    The calamari was perfect, I had the best arugula salad I have ever tasted. The Veal “Parmigiana”was amazing, way beyond ordinary and the Chicken “Margarita”was exceptional. The most tender veal and chicken I have ever tasted. Although the bar was extremely loud upon arrival the server saw to it that the noise level became acceptable. Excellent attentive service, will definitely be returning in the very near future.

    We had dinner before going to a show and it was perfect. The restaurant looks great, the service was friendly and professional, and the food was excellent while not expensive. The noise level was a bit high for my taste, but I think it's great that the restaurant is so busy and hopping with activity.

    The minute we entered we felt welcomed and staff were eager to accommodate us. We were seated near the dining room fire place. Our server, Elibel was polite and very attentive. Our meals were prepared elegantly, tasted fantastic and served in a timely manner. We found ample public parking across the street and we were only minutes from the auditorium where we went to for a concert after dinner. I would definitely recommend Rossetti's to friends and family and will return again to enjoy the atmosphere, food and wonderful service.

    If you're looking for amazing food, a great bar with creative drinks and outstanding service than this the place for you!! This restaurant is a gem that offers Downtown quality food and ambiance with reasonable prices. We dine here often and have always had a great experience. The steak mafioso is phenomenal and they always have wonderful specials. And their drink menu is superb! Such creative and delicious drinks! And I cannot say enough about the service! Always professional and knowledgeable. During our most recent visit James assisted us and he is fantastic! And the we even had the pleasure of speaking with the owner! Such a sweet and welcoming man! Made us feel right at home! If you haven't tried Rossetti's in Lynn- you must!!

    Great place to eat with prices though to beat. Kind of makes you forget you're in a beat up part of Lynn as everything inside the place is spotless and top notch. Service was excellent and the food was delicious and came with portions that filled me up to the point where I could barely breathe but that's just cuz it was too good to leave left overs.

    Normally wouldn't drive an hour to Lynn for a restaurant, but we made a reservation here before a concert at the weird venue up the street. We were pleasantly surprised with Rossetti's. The menu had a very good variety...steaks, pastas, flatbreads. We split the Tuna tartare appetizer, which was good, each had a flatbread; 1) squash, and 2) shrimp with arugula. Both very good. Bring your appetite. The portions seem larger than most places. Service was very attentive.

    The interior is beautiful and clean clean clean. The hostess was very welcoming and accommodating. We arrived early and it was no issue to find us a table...even though the restaurant was filling to capacity. Waitress gave us recommendations and told me of a vinegar sauce that was not on the menu for the chicken dish I wanted. the chef made the item though not on the menu...it was awesome. Variety of food great and prices were reasonable. Can spend as little or as much as want but will get a great meal. Going back and could become our go to place.

    I enjoyed our experience at Rossetti's. Service is very good. Bar scene and bartenders and drinks are very good. Excellent ambiance. I felt like I was in the middle of something. Very good crowd. Hostess group was very flexible in working with us for seating. We had no problems with noise. I liked the shrimp scampi a lot. My wife was disappointed with gluten free chicken dish. Finding street parking on a Friday night was not a problem. Adjacent to Lynn Auditorium if you are going to a concert, as we did. I will go again.

    This was my fourth time dining at Rosetti's. It is hidden in a not-pretty part of Lynn, but a TOTAL FIND. From appetizers to dessert, this place hit it out of the park. The owner/chef came over toward the end of our dinner to check in and see how we liked it, and was genuinely interested in our feedback. We loved it and will go back for sure!

    I had been to the Rosetti's in Winthrop a number of times and heard rave reviews about the new location in Lynn. It far surpassed my expectations. The atmosphere is so different than I expected, and I loved the decor and vibe. Our waitress, Kelly, was so attentive and friendly. They custom tailored a specialty cocktail for me which was delicious. The manager, Chris, came over to our table at least twice during the evening, and he was charming and so appreciative of our compliments. I can't wait to come back for the shrimp scampi flatbread and to try other dishes!

    Food is fair. The antipasti was boring, bread was terrible and they served it with cheap olive oil. We mussels which were tiny and some were empty. White bean soup tasted like it was from a can! The food was lacking complexity, bland, and seafood way over cooked. We were disappointed, as this was our anniversary dinner:(. We don't recommend this restaurant. Too bad because we wanted to support a local restaurant in Lynn. If you want mind blowing food, go to 5 corners in Marblehead.

    I have been to the Lynn restaurant a twice and was not disappointed either time. The restaurant is set up nicely for seating and the decor is stylish. The wait staff couldn't have been any nicer and more attentive. We were not rushed at all. The appetizers were terrific and my wife fell in love with the calamari. The pork chop, salmon, haddock and eggplant were all terrific. I don't know if Rossetti's make their own pasta, but, I had linguini with olive oil and garlic and it was out of this world. The Rossetti family takes care of you and they have a little gem on the North Shore and it's worth the trip. Make reservations a week in advance which you can do online.
