Rossetti's is always good.
We came to Lynn for the Doobie Brothers concert at the Lynn Auditorium. Several days prior we made a 7pm reservation through Open Table. We arrived about one hour ahead of time to have drinks at the bar. My wife had the pear martini and I had the Rossetti Old Fashion. Both drinks had a great presentation and tasted really good. The huge crystal clear ice block in the Old Fashion was impressive. We were seated exactly at 7pm. We started with the fried calamari, and shared the meatball app and veal parmigiana entree. Everything was prepared fresh and tasted awesome. The hostesses, the bar staff and waitress were all attentive and friendly. It was an excellent experience!
Second time is the charm. We chose to dine here before the Doobie Brothers concert. Our first time dining also before a concert (Prince 4U - A symphonic celebration) was marred by the service. This time around, The restaurant had a better handle on the pre-concert dinner rush. We were seated promptly and the service was much better. The beef meatball appetizer, the veal parmigiana with Bolognese sauce and the Chicken "Margarita" were awesome, full of flavor and served piping hot. This is among the best Italian restaurants I've dined at in the Greater Boston Area. Its well worth the 90 minute drive.
Our first time there and we loved it! Would definitely return!!
This was the first visit to Rosetti's recommended by several friends. Upon entering on a rainy friday night the ambiance immediately lifted our moods! Very chic and classy. The service from the beginning was impeccable very nice and lovely staff very smooth in the sense of how the just seem to appear. Cocktails were fantastic. I rarely eat pork but decided to order the chop based on online reviews and my husband ordered the steak mifiaoso. Both entrees were not at all what we expected or saw photographed online. Very large chucks of red/green peppers slathered in a red sauce, however my pork was infact delicious but my husband's steak was too busy with the toppings to appreciate the cut of meat. Chef or owner came out to to greet patrons which was much appreciated. We found it ironic that we had to travel 2 zip codes for this kind of service! We will be back but hope that entrees look more like photos online. Also please change plastic serving dishes. Thank you!
Outstanding service from our “rookie “ waiter. Cod and squash with cheese sauce was superb - perfectly cooked. Stuffed chicken was excellent.
The Owner is over the top in tune about his customers experience. We had 8:30 pm reservations and we had to wait 15 mins due to others staying longer than usual. He came to our table and gave us a complimentary appetizer and followed up again at the end of the evening! The food as always was amazing; cocktails were perfect and garnished so pretty. No need to go into the North End.... Rosetti’s is A++
The best food, service, drinks around! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone but make a reservation because they are waiting in line to get in!!
I have never written a review for any restaurant, good or bad, but I have been dreaming about the amazing meal I had here two days ago and figured I should share. I had heard about this restaurant a few times and went in September for my birthday dinner. I almost got steak but the Chicken Margarita someone nearby was eating looked great so I decided to get that instead. It was delicious, as was the wine, bread, zucchini blossom appetizer special, my husband’s chicken parm, and the chocolate torta dessert. Definite birthday-worthy meal. I went back this week and almost got the chicken again but thankfully went with the Sirloin Mafiosa - OMG - amazing! The cut of meat was so tasty and delicious on its own, but the sauce, fresh mozzarella, peppers, onions, capers, etc. on top made it INSANE. It came with a side of fresh linguine topped with the same sauce. My husband also had a sirloin but with delicious mashed potatoes and asparagus, and again we got the scrumptious chocolate torta for dessert. He also said his steak was among the best he’s had, and that’s a lot. I went to a christening the next day and was telling everyone who would listen about my amazing meal. I eat super healthy most days and use a weekend night out as my splurge meal. Everything we’ve tried at Rossetti is worth the calories, price and trip to Lynn. Both times our server was super knowledgeable, friendly and efficient, as were the hostesses and bus boy — and this time the chef even stopped at our table to ask about our food. Can’t wait to go back. Try the steak!
The food was excellent and the service was great. It was quiet enough to that we could talk.
Another great meal . Food was scrumptious and service was tremendous. We will be back again
We have gone to Rosetti’s many times
It’s a little pricey
But consistently good
The food was excellent! Definitely a GEM of Lynn and the greater Northshore ! Our server Raven, was delightful, pleasant, attentive and well versed on the menu . It’s a must go for anyone looking to have a delicious meal ! Two thumbs up!
Service was perfect.. asked for scallops that were not in the menu but they had in house. They accommodated and was delicious
Son and wife visiting and Rossetti’s was perfect as usual. Bobby Rossetti’s passion for creating fantastic Italian dishes, whether traditional or haute cuisine, is very good every time. Best handcrafted cocktails in every sense of the word. Not just a title, but real. Can’t miss at Rossetti’s Restaurant in Lynn...CANNOT MISS!!!
Great find. Atmosphere was pleasant and warm. Service was engaging and staff very knowledgeable about the ingredients in their recipes and pairings of wines. Price was right on point. A great place to go for a cozy meal or group engagement.
Got seated on time. Wait staff was very personable and attentive. All 4 of us liked our entries. Great wine list. Nice evening. Great ambience.
Excellent as usual. Rossettis continues to be our favorite restaurant on the North Shore. Great food, service and atmosphere. If you have not venturedone out to this awesome Lynn establishment you are missing out!
I'd like to see the menu expanded as well as with a few more lower-cost items. The specials of the day are very tempting, but not the price. It would be nice if one of the nightly specials was priced closer to their pasta price range. The Bolognese sauce is outstanding! The limoncello cake for dessert is decadent but light, a little tart, not overly sweet, perfect!
This place is 99 percent perfect on average
Come many times.
service little slow refilling cocktail glasses. Overall very good.
I made a reservation for 6:30 but had to wait. Maybe they over booked. Food was really good and had a lovely presentation. Staff were excellent and helpful. My 3rd time in there. Will definitely be back again!
Or service was excellent, waitress was very friendly. The chef came out asking how the meal was, since I had the night special, lamb ragu. It was excellent. My wife had the veal parm, which was melt in your mouth. We will be back.
The food and service was great! We will definitely go back!
the food was bland. no other word to discribe. i tried the dish of my dining companion, bland. so dissapointed.
Excellent as always. My favorite restaurant.
Always outstanding and we’re frequent visitors. Highly recommended!
We started with bread and olive oil that was plentiful and delicious. Our meals were also delicious with great flavors and large portions. Everything was cooked well. The wait staff was attentive and very nice. The only difficult part is the noise level. It got very noisy at different points with a crowded restaurant but overall it was very good and we would go again.
Absolutely love it here it's about a half an hour drive for me but it is absolutely worth it every single time, there creative handcrafted cocktails are to-die-for and their food is fabulous especially their homemade yaquis
Outstanding food, service, cocktails and ambience. Rosetti is always amazing. My favorite restaurant on the North Shore.
As usual it was awesome! A few of us had the haddock/lobster & spinach risotto special and it was delicious. One of my favorite meals ever!
This was my first time to this restaurant, everything from cocktails to food was amazing, I will definitely go back!
A Boston experience on the North Shore!
We have been here many times and it always exceeds expectation from start to finish! The food is fresh, service is fantastic and the bar is amazing!
The food is always excellent as is the staff. Matt and Rody always wait on us and they are both so delightful.
Rosetti's is our favorite restaurant.
The food was wonderful! The service made you feel special. It was very relaxing, and not uppity.
Always great food with great service. We had the Octopus special for appetizer and I had the burger, both were amazing.
Excellent food but a disappointing experience. The calamari appetizer with marinara sauce was outstanding - light crispy batter and a savory sauce with a little kick. The bread with garlic infused olive oil with herbs and Parmesan was delightful. The entrees (spaghetti with beef meatballs and veal parmigiana) get two enthusiastic thumbs up. Both were served piping hot. This would be a 5 star review but for the service. We arrived a few minutes past our reserved time of 6:15 pm. We were not seated until 6:35 pm. To compensate for our wait, we were served a complimentary appetizer as were other guests who were seated after us. Although we ordered our entrees within 5 minutes of being seated, our entrees did not arrive at our table until 7:25 pm which gave us very little time to finish our meals. Staff appeared overwhelmed by the pre-concert dinner rush.
After about a dozen visits here, the food and cocktails are consistently great and the service keeps getting better.
In my experience, service is the first thing to decline, but the friendly, engaging and knowledgeable staff keep getting better here.
