    The food was yummy, but we waited a long time for it to arrive. We were also surprised the manager never came by to let us know that the kitchen was experiencing a delay or to apologise for the delay. Just felt a little bit underwhelming. Usually very happy with our experiences here. Not tonight.

    My husband and I were celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary. We were greeted at the hostess desk with a smile. I asked if we could sit in the bar area and the hostess sat us at a cozy table by the window that was lovely. Once we were seated the waitress came over and offered us a champagne toast for our anniversary which was such a nice touch! We ordered the crab cake appetizer, and it was delicious! My husband had the veal parmigiana, and I had the cod. Both meals were incredible. We can't wait to go back and enjoy another dinner at La Rosa's!

    The food was delicious, but it is slightly overpriced and the service is inexcusably slow. We waited 15 mins to get drinks, another 30 for apps and then another 45 mins for our dinners. There was no apology for the wait and the restaurant was not overly busy. Then as we were still finishing our dinners, 3 waitstaff came over and started taking dishes off of our table as we were still eating. Would not dine there again.

    This Andover gem delivers every time.. the manager is always hospitable and makes us feel welcome. We love the bar it’s like being out in Boston. For the last 5 years I always order veal Milanese. However tonight I ordered the rib eye with charred broccolini. It was better than Abe & Louie’s. I was texting a pic to all my steak friends! My wife had the cod it was perfect. Server was Great! I’m always amazed how the server assistant team delivers bread service and keeps our water full throughout the meal. You don’t see this enough anymore when dining out. TY LaRosa!

    We had a great time, although it was super loud and hard to hear my friend. Food great, server very nice and attentive, my only complaint is that there were about 4 different staff who rotated coming over to us CONSTANTLY asking if we were still working on our food. It was insane we were asked about 30 times! It got very annoying and intrusive and if we weren't in such a good mood we would've complained. I wish after the first 5 times I had asked for them to please stop asking and we'll let them know when we're done eating! It bordered on rude they need to stop harassing customers who are trying to eat their food.

    LaRosa's in Andover is a keeper. We've been here several times and will keep coming back. Everything we've had has been excellently prepared and presented and super tasty at both lunch and dinner. The pistachio encrusted salmon with couscous is amazing, cooked perfectly. LaRosa's meatball antipasti is delicious and their pasta dishes are really special. If you have room for dessert, the tiramisu if delicious. The service here is also terrific. The waitstaff are friendly, attentive but not intrusive. I highly recommend LaRosa's.

    I love the atmosphere at La Rosa’s but was not a fan of the menu. I am an adventurous eater and love to try new things, but I had to look up most of the things on the menu because I am not an expert in different types of Italian pasta. It made me feel better that the waitress was new and did not know what most of the menu items were either. More standard Italian fare is needed using terminology in the menu that can be understood without speaking Italian or having to look things up online. I wanted a fresh, vegetarian pasta dish (pasta tossed with vegetables, etc.) and it was disappointing that there was nothing like that on the menu.

    My husband's veal was dry and overcooked, no sides just a chop and lettuce/tom. He had already ordered a salad prior. He did not know the salad was included. Should have been told by waitress. My ravioli was actually horrible. Not sure if we will return. Thank you

    Three of us went for my husband’s birthday. The chicken Marsala was great as was the cod. Unfortunately, my husband’s dish was not. He got filet with risotto which was so so salty he couldn’t eat it. We had a good time tho- the service was good and the atmosphere was upbeat.
