We continue to go back and it continues to be one of our favorite restaurants. The food here is outstanding. We have been there many, many times with friends and by ourselves and no one has ever had a bad meal. You can eat off the menu, but if you have a special request and they have the ingredients in the kitchen, they will make it for you. Just a great dining experience. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and the service is outstanding. Ask for the back room, it is a little quieter but no matter where you sit, the food and service will be great. And there is a parking lot across the street which makes it convenient and safe.

Mediocre food--overly seasoned sauce on the gnocchi, antipasti platter with very marginal charcuterie (tasted like they came from the deli counter of the grocery store) and cheeses and greens drenched in truffle oil so that the flavors were muddied and overdone. The kitchen could benefit from an inspired chef.

My food was delicious but I was disappointed in the serving size of two items. I ordered the eggplant appetizer and got (4) thin slices of approx 2.5 diameter pieces for $10.95. The chocolate torta dessert was at the bottom of a ramekin under two scoops of ice cream and was a shallow serving of cake when I got to it. I left feeling that I hadn't gotten my money's worth. The service from Matt P. was excellent and I told him so.
I brought two friends to the restaurant to introduce them to it and they were pleased with their choices. I will hesitate to bring anyone back again.

Excellent experience. Waiter (Matt) was so friendly and when it got busy, the manager helped out and he was super friendly and welcoming. We ordered an appetizer special - zucchini blooms that were amazing. They had local honey drizzled on them. I asked where the local honey came from and the executive chef Bobby came out with a bottle of the honey to show us exactly where he gets it from in the Diamond District. Told us to tell the seller that he sent us. Just a real welcoming friendly family oriented place with amazing food. Would dine here over and over

Probably my 5th visit to this restaurant and EVERY time the food AND service have been AMAZING. My only complaint is that it occasionally takes too long to get drinks and the space is too loud and therefore disruptive to the conversation I am trying to have at my table whether with business colleagues, friends, family or my lovely wife who deserves my undivided attention.

Excellent, authentic Italian cuisine. Our appetizers were perfectly prepared. The Crispy Fried Calamari was lightly fried and flavorful. The description of the Fried Eggplant appetizer does it no justice - it's a medallion of fried eggplant with ricotta, spinach, basil and marinara - visualize a little pizza. For entrees, the pan roasted Veal Marsala was light and delicious and the Chicken "Margarita" (in a Lemon, Butter, White Wine and Capers sauce). We both opted for the homemade pasta - delicious. Whenever you find yourself in Lynn, you need to stop by!

This is my second time at Rosetti’s. Started our meal with the shrimp scampi appetizer which was delicious! Selected the chicken marguerita for dinner which was wonderful. Finished the meal with selection of cannolis and cappuccino which was the perfect end to a wonderful meal. Enjoyed every morsel.

We (party of four) went to Rosetti for a birthday celebration on a Wednesday evening. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and I would recommend this restaurant to my friends and others who enjoy delicious food with ample plus servings. Our server for the evening was very attentive and pleasant and made sure we were well cared for all evening. She informed us of the daily specials and answered any questions we had regarding various menu offererings from appetizers to dessert. Everyone had a memorable experience including the "Birthday girl." We collectively agreed we will definitely go back again...and again...

Fantastic place. Food was outstanding. Loved it. Such a nice surprise. I thought we were going to an old Italian place with old red leather booths. I was pleasantly surprised when I went in and it was modern, jazz playing, cool inside, cool bar, happening little place. Food was outstanding, we both loved our meals. Service was ok, waitress was a little scattered hard to get her attention, but overall it was fine, since everything else was spot on.

We celebrated our anniversary at the restaurant prior to seeing the show at the Lynn Auditorium. We were warmly greeted and the entire dining experience was excellent. The entree selections that we chose were delicious. I enjoyed the appetizer special which was lobster served with a homemade salsa and aoli in a fried wonton shell, delectable! I had the haddock with lump crab meat topping which was delicious. My husband enjoyed the chicken marguerita. He thoroughly enjoyed his selection. We finished the meal with a delicious tortufo which is spumoni ice cream in a shell of dark chocolate accompanied by cappuccino. Just wonderful! When the owner learned that it was our anniversary, he prepared a special toast in champagne flutes for us to have before we left. It was a perfect celebratory dinner! Looking forward to going back!

Party for four arrived at 6pm- we were promptly seated. We had wonderful service. We wanted a new dinner entree as an appetizer, and it was divided up for the four of us. It was a Veal Ragu, delicious. We had 4 different entrees- each was well prepared and presented beautifully.. Dessert was prepared with brownie, vanilla ice cream, raspberries- it was fantastic!

The staff is the most friendly, starting with being greeted when you enter the reasturant. Waitstaff are attentive and knowledgeable and seem to be around when you need them, but not enough to be annoying. They kitchen staff are very efficient and knowledgeable. The kitchen is easily visible if you care to watch a well oiled operation. There is ample parking, with on street and a municiple lot directly across the street. The meal starts with fresh bread and flavored oil and whatever is ordered is cooked perfectly. Absolutely delicious a fine dining experience.

Rossetti never disappoints! My wife and I dined here prior to attending a show at Arts After Hours at LynnArts ("Edges," which was great -- go see it!) Our appetizer -- tempura-style zucchini blossoms drizzled with local honey -- melted in your mouth. Despite some tempting specials, we opted for menu staples: Chicken "Braciolettini" with a wonderful white wine butter garlic sauce for me, Pan Roasted Atlantic Haddock with Sweet Pea and Shrimp Risotto for my wife. We both qualified for membership in the Clean Plate Club. My cocktail, a mule made with house-infused cranberry vodka, was also delicious. We didn't have time (or room) for dessert, but the cannoli that passed by our table looked amazing. Service was very attentive without being overwhelming. We shall return!

This is my second try here. The drinks and decor are good but the food is really average. I know this is a chef owned place but that could be the problem because the food is the only thing that could be dramatically better. Here are some of my observations: mussels diavolo: sauce not that great mussels were a bit fishy. Should try Turners in Salem for a great version of this dish - awesome sauce and perfect muscles. Charcuterie board could have been great but one of the meats had flavor overtones like it had been cut way in advance of being ordered, for a great charcuterie board I'd say Blue-ox Lynn or Ledger Salem. Had the pork chop on my first go and it was a sliced brick, it had been cooked to a pearly white leather, tasted par-boiled to me. For a great pork chop I'd go to Firenze in Salem. Wine and cocktails were great, selection of wines - whites in particular, could be improved. The old fashioned is great.
