Always great food with great service. We had the Octopus special for appetizer and I had the burger, both were amazing.
Excellent food but very slow service. Food: 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. Unfortunately, we did not get to finish our entrees as we had to leave for a concert.
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 guest 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.
It appears that the staff was overwhelmed and unable to handle the concert goer rush. As a result the kitchen was severely backed up. Hopefully the next time we dine there, the staff will be better able to cope with yet another concert 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.
The best Italian restaurant experience you will ever have in your life and here is why:
Family owned business with customer service you never experienced before, the whole team will make you feel at home and they will recognize you when you come back.
Mr.Rossetti is passionate about cooking and is creating unique, creative & authentic Italian dishes with only the best ingredients. You will be able to see Mr.Rossetti and his son cooking in the kitchen and they will always take their time to chat with all guests at the restaurant, which creates a very welcoming and personal atmosphere.
The food is amazingly delicious and the cocktails are outstanding since some of the ingredients are home made.
This restaurant is a must try. It is my favorite Restaurant and I can highly recommend it!!!
Very nice restaurant, it's an oasis in downtown lLynn. The waitstaff was very knowledgeable friendly and attentive. Drinks or good.
The menu hit all of the basics without having too much on it.
We have been here before and have never been disappointed. This night they offered a special dinner of Lamb Ragu - outstanding- pulled Lamb and prepared to perfection. They should add it to their regular menu. Can’t wait for my next visit. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Amazing food! Owner is caring with all his customers. His son also was great with the wine list! I highly recommend it.
Needed a microscope to find the anchovies.
Noise level way to high. I couldn't carry on a conversation with people at my table. Food was good. Service super.
Our first dining experience at Rossetti was great! We sat at the bar - and I have to say it was worth going just for the bread / EVOO + herbs + parm dip. It is addictive for sure, and probably the best I have ever had.
I had salmon which tasted very fresh, was a good portion and was cooked perfectly. The bartender was attentive, professional & suggested a special order vegetarian dish for my husband, which the chef happily accommodated, and was also delicious.
Loved everything. The only thing I would have liked would have been more pasta options...
Excellent meal fantastic food and atmosphere. Highly recommend!
When we first looked at the menu we thought it was a bit pricey. However, once we got our food we changed our minds. Best chicken parm I've ever had, my brother in law couldn't get enough of his pork chop (special of the night) and the cannolis were extremely fresh. Everything was delicious, and the waitress and chef were willing to make adjustments and changes as requested by some picky members of our party. Service was super attentive.
The food was delicious. Definitely will go again.
My dish was so delicious I wanted to lick the dish. lol
No I wouldn't really lick a dish.
Great drinks and accomodating service, would go back again
Fantastic experience as always!
We had a delightful meal. It was not inexpensive, but every bite was delicious and service and ambiance were first rate.
This continues to be one of our favorite restaurants. And every time we bring new friends there they want to go back. The food is outstanding, the service is great and the owners are in the restaurant every night making sure there is no compromise to the quality.
I always get a good meal here.
Tonight, before a local show at the Lynn Auditorium, the bar was energetic and a bit loud, but worked well for us on this particular night as most of the crowd was there for the same show.
Service is usually very good, but tonight was exceptionally great, very professional, attentive and accommodating to our need to get to the show on time.
Bob Rossetti is in the kitchen , on the floor and at your table to make sure your dining experience surpasses your expectation and brings you back ...
Food and service was excellent
Great service , great food
Four of us dined at Rossetti’s in Lynn at the recommendation of a relative with reliable taste. We had some concern about some of the reviews we saw on OpenTable; we were agreeably surprised. We were seated within five minutes of our reservation time, and the front desk honored (to the best of their ability, given the space available) our request for a quiet table. The service was solicitous but not intrusive; as the meal went on and the place began to fill, we did have the sense that the dining room might be a little understaffed; but our orders were delivered without undue delay. We started with a Caesar salad and figs wrapped in prosciutto with goat cheese and blueberries (an off-menu special). We continued with tagliatelle Bolognese, pizza Margherita, veal Marsala, and pan-roasted haddock, accompanied by an Allagash white beer, a pinot grigio, and an Alberino. We finished with tiramisu and crème brûlée. We were all pleased with the preparation and presentation of our food. The price point was a bit higher than is customary in Lynn, but certainly not out of line with the quality of the offerings. We’d be happy to dine here again.
Rossetti’s was a great find! We were looking for a restaurant walking distance to Lynn Auditorium for dinner before a show. Table was waiting. Service was impeccable!!! Food was equivalent to my mother’s best and she is an Italian cook. Menu had great choices across the board-seafood (soft shell crab special was excellent), steak, veal, chicken (margarita chicken delicate and tasty). Wine choices were not too pricey. Dessert cannoli was served in a perfectly crispy shell and waitress was thoughtful to bring a good knife for cutting and sharing the assorted pastry.
Loved this restaurant! I only wish it were closer.
Service was a little slow as there was a show in auditorium & very busy w/ preshow diners. Food was excellent as usual. Split a Caesar which was more than enough. Both had haddock on shrimp/ pea risotto which was perfectly cooked. Several times we had to flag down our server to order or get the check. She was very nice, very busy.
Second time there first time awesome service food and atmosphere very good this time service slow, food ok for the price very expensive
I eat there with my family about once a month. We have never been disappointed. The staff is welcoming and friendly, the food is superb, fresh with interesting combinations and tastes and the cocktail Formula 44 is to die for.
Had not been there for a year or so after a so so expierience last time.
Food was very good but a little on the pricey side.
29.00 for a cod or haddock dish.
We had an asparagus/procuttio app that was also good.
Noise level moderate and reservation time was honored.
My biggest complaint is a pet peeve of mine.
Waitress gives you the Specials but doesn't give you the prices.
So you either pass on the Specials because you don't want to ask or you get a special and hope it is in line with other things on the menu, which it may or may not be. If you pass on special after asking for price, you look like a cheapskate to others in party.
I can't imagine why an owner would approve of this, if they even know, or is it the waitperson that chooses to do this.
My tip while being adaquate will never be generous after being put through this.
Go to Italian restaurant .... great food, great service, great people
Another great meal at Rossetti’s in Lynn. Friendly, attentive service from the minute you walk in the door and throughout the time you are there. Food is outstanding. Try the “Mafioso” (prosciutto, provolone, mushrooms (if u like) and in marinara. I get it with the pork chop. Steak is also an option. Can’t wait to go back.
My husband and I love Rosetti's and it is our favorite restaurant on the North Shore. The staff and owners are always so friendly. Matt and Rody usually wait on us and are just terrific.
We’ve been there multiple times. The quality of the food and service is always terrific.
I have been there a few times and have liked it. This time I called ahead with a specific request for a table. I was told they had already put me at a different table. I explained that one member of our party suffers from violent migraines and had had a bad experience there in the past due to the noise. I said it as where we were seated. When we arrived they did move us but on the same side of the restaurant that is noisy. Three of us who already liked the restaurant didn't mind until one table arrived who were very noisy. We asked for a number of better seating options that are quieter before we sat and all of them were turned down. Our reservation was for 5:30 so it was not crowded.
First time to Rosettis it was a pretty restaurant with excellent food. Our waiter Matt was outstanding. He had great suggestions and made our evening vey enjoyable. The zucchini flowers and calamari appetizers were delicious. Everyone enjoyed their dinners.
food was excellent, had the poached haddock! a very relaxing evening...can't wait to return....sad that halibut wasn't one of the specials...but the zucchini blossoms were and they were outstanding!!!
Great food, great service & yummy drinks
The calamari was a huge portion and perfect, with two sauces for dipping. Asparagus and prosciutto was also yummy. Mafioso steak and salmon were cooked to perfection. Service was outstanding. Special compliments to the bus girl who was very attentive and provided service that was both excellent and cordial.
We have been to Rosetti’s many times and we have never been disappointed .
ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING OWNER BOBBY AND HIS STAFF PROVIDE A TRULY ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE - SAT AT BAR OUTSTANDING SERVICE BY KAYLIE - WE WILL BE BACK
Food is always excellent!
Probably not fair asking for my opinion. this is one of our favorite places to eat. We have never had a meal here that was not perfect. They work so hard to make the food special and it shows. With either the father or the son in the kitchen (and sometimes both) you just know it is going to be good every time. Don't see something you like? Ask them for something off the menu and if they have the ingredients, they will try to make it happen. They make the best meatballs you will ever have and you can get them as an appetizer. Looking for homemade pasta? They always have at least a couple on the menu. But it's the quality of the food and service that we love there.
