Wow! We were extremely happy with our choice, a new restaurant for us.
I found it on a FB food page and decided to give it a try - reservations made via OpenTable. On street parking. Upon entering we were greeted by 3 smiling young ladies, all sincere and seemingly happy to see us and to be there. We were promptly seated then greeted by a women serving water, then our waiter came over and introduced himself... he was pleasant, asked us if we had ever been before. We told him it was our first time... he explained that they will accommodate allergies but they’ll also make or create anything we want if they have the ingredients and it’s not on the menu. Very nice touch. He took our drink orders, brought us delicious bread with dipping oil.
We split an arugula salad, he offered to have it put on 2 plates for us. Another nice touch. The salad was fresh, simple and delicious with shaved parm and a honey vinaigrette.
For our entrees, I ordered the eggplant parm, my husband veal parm. Served with house made pasta - all exceeded our expectations.
We had time to kill so we lingered, having cappuccino and each ordering a dessert because we couldn’t choose one. Mini canollis (which we took home for later) and a special dessert of chocolate, raspberry and pistachio layered gelato covered in dark chocolate. Wow. He also brought a mug of hot water with a knife to slice through the dessert (the only pic I am missing!). It was beautiful and delicious.
I think you can tell we enjoyed our experience and our dinner.
This is what all restaurants should be. They know it, they do it right. We will be back.
Ps - extremely reasonable prices.
I always give this a 5 star across the board but friday night was off a bit. Seemed to be a newer server. Had to wait for more wine or even to ask to order more wine. I asked the bus boy to find the server. Had the special swordfish chop. I always get it when its on the menu. Friday night the fish was good but the bone and skin were burn't and the burn't flavor from the skin went into the fish it self so it was not enjoyable as I expected from lots of previous nights there. I did not even wait form my favorite creame burlee cause I was not a happy camper . Also my wife asked the server for light sauce on the egg plant well that did not happen either. We will go back but ask for the server gentleman that he is totally awesome.
Excellent and consistent taste. Superb flavor!! One of the few upscale restaurants in Lynn. Cocktails are well made and enjoyable
O U T S T A N D I N G !!
The eggplant parm was very greasy as the eggplant was deep fried first
60th Wedding Anniversary
Great meal.... our third visit to Rosetti’s. We will be back again
Terrific meal! First time I ate here and had a great experience all around. The waitress, Diedre, made some recommendations and they were spot on. Wine list had some nice options with reasonable prices. Food was delicious with ample portions. Appetizers, meatballs and prosciutto wrapped asparagus, were outstanding.The owner came over to chat which was a nice touch. Can’t wait to go back.
Amazing experience every time. The people, the food, the service, all excellent.
Great food and service. Also fulfilled my seating request.
You are good and can do better with the lobster ravioli which had hardly any lobster taste or texture and was slightly undercooked. Calamari...Tides does it right. Olive oil too bitter. You are charging premium and must be held to higher standard. We want you too be great. Still best restaurant in Lynn. I would not criticize like this publicly...this is for your beneft.
Always have been happy with the food and service Parking not an issue
Always a great meal at Rosetti’s. We were going to an event after dinner, so it was a bit rushed towards the end, but our waiter was very attentive.
This was a really nice restaurant. Great place to meet friends before going to the theater. Short walk to Lynne Auditorium.
Food was delicious. Service was great. Atmosphere was fun, cozy.
Great restaurant, great food, drinks and service. There are always interesting specials and the Ownership works to accommodate food allergies.
The lamb was amazing! I am so glad I got the special. My friend had the steak mafioso and he loved it. I had a sample of my friend’s burger, it was wonderful! This dinner was worth the expense!
Great food and service by Matt! We enjoyed the Gnocchi for appetizer, which was light and very flavorful. I'd probably consider getting this as an entree next time it was that good. The lamb chop was cooked perfectly and the vinegar pepper sauce is amazing. The Haddock was fresh and the sauce was delicious. Finished it off with a generous slice of Tiramisu and mini (actually pretty large) cannolis. Food were perfect and look forward to gong back soon! Highly recommend Rossetti.
great food and service ,specials are wonderful, also steaks are top notch
One of our favorites in downtown Lynn. Haddock with crab top spinach risotto. My wife got the stuffed veal chop. Both were outstanding
Over priced, food taste doesn’t meet the pricing. Food took over 40 minutes to come out
This was my 2nd night in a row dining here. Had Rodi as server both nights. She is friendly and knowledgeable. Had bolognese w/ tagliatelle 1st night which was delicious. My friend had sausage cavatelli dish which they swapped out the broc rabe for spinach at her request. We both had wonderful meals. The next night 2 of us had the delicious haddock w/ rissotto. Gnocchi & tagliatelle bolognese was enjoyed by the others in our group. We also had eggplant app and spinach ravioli for starters. Raves all around.
The only thing I missed was that chef/ owners Bob & Chris usually come by the tables but they must have been too busy making all the exceptional food those nights.
Highly recommend Rossetti's!
The food is always fantastic here. Definitely worth the trip. The only complaint I have is the waitress was a bit absent towards the end of the meal. We had a concert next door and we would have liked to have quicker service at the end. She brought us desert menus and had she returned in a timely manner we would have ordered dessert but by the time she returned we needed to get to the theater. Upside is we saved calories.
Service and food and selections were very good. Perhaps some additional menu items would add more value to the restaurant.
We loved this place. Most notably the service was amazing - the two of us ordered some plates to share and Matthew split them for us, which helps a lot with dishes like linguine and salad - and also the prices were great for a home-cooked-feel Italian meal, and the cocktail was so good I would come to this restaurant just for a drink if I lived closer (they take their drinks seriously - my drink came with a hand-carved chunk of ice). The food was very good (eggplant, calamari, arugula salad all 5-star) but I have to mention the veal parmigiana was so oversalted we couldn't finish it. Which is a shame because the veal was very tender and the pasta was fresh and the sauce was perfectly tomato-ey <-- all the toughest parts to make the dish successful! But they laid on the salt. Not enough to knock off a star but keep in mind when you order.
This lively upscale restaurant was a hidden gem in Lynn, MA. Open area with high industrial ceilings and a packed restaurant made for a fun adventure. Both meals were delicious, the wait staff was extremely attentive and I will definitely be back to try more menu items. Close to the Civic Center to precede any shows, but be sure to make a reservation.
The food, service and ambiance were perfect. And, as usual, Bobby was the perfect host.
We had a lovely dinner at Rossetti's before attending a show at the Lynn Auditorium. The service was great and the food was delicious.
Excellent food; excellent service (very kind and professional service personnel). Manager came to ask us how the meal was, and to acknowledge it took a little longer to get the meals out---which was very nice.
Went for dinner with and everything was perfect. Matt, our server was friendly, attentive, made great suggestions and was right there when you needed anything. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was fantastic. Amazing crafted cocktails and wine selection. I highly recommend Rossetti’s!
Birthday celebration with friends. Excellent!!!!
Great service and food. We were seated promptly and staff was helpful and knowledgeable
We went here on a whim tonight after seeing that there was an available reservation. Everything was unbelievable. Our server, Felicia was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was absolutely amazing from presentation to taste. We had the beet salad and calamari to start. The aioli with the calamari was incredible! For dinner we had the chicken cutlet and spinach and chicken with a lemon sauce (similar to a piccata but I forget the name of the dish). For dessert we had the special - trifecta which was a white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate layered mousse and the tiramisu. Both were delicious. We will absolutely be back!
Love Rosetti. Always great food and atmosphere. Never rushed food is always amazing. Always nice to see chef bob rosetti greet his guests
I had the lobster ravioli , it was excellent !!!my husband had haddock , great for weight watchers diet!
My third time at Rossetti's, first 2 experiences were very good all around. This most recent visit everything was good except the portion size and value. We both ordered the evening specials; veal chop and the 6oz filet with sautéed shrimp over linguine. Both meals were cooked fine, but the portion sizes were most certainly on the small side while the cost of each special was $44.00 each which I thought was over the top for Downtown Lynn. I have had veal chop twice this portion size at High end Downtown Boston establishments at around $44. Bottom line I felt the specials portion size for the $44 price was unreasonable.
Catching up with old friends for dinner . The experience was delightful . The hostess sat us promptly and our waitress was excellent. She was very accommodating with our table . The food was well prepared and served in a timely manner . The homemade Italian pasta was delicious and out of this world. Not too big or filling but tasty . We will be back ...sooner then later .
We didn’t have to wait. The back room is great. I like to sit there the best. friendly and knowledgeable staff
Authentic Italian food and great service, highly recommended!
We love this resturant. We went to have dinner and finalize plans for My sons wedding rehersal dinner that will take place there. The food was great as usual. Raven took care of all our questions and more abou rehersal dinner.
