About the restaurant
Everyone is family at our flagship Toscana location. Our philosophy is to never cut corners and always do things the old school Italian way. All sauces, dressings, ravioli and desserts are made from scratch, daily. You can be sure that anything you eat today, was prepared today. We'll match it with a fantastic wine & cocktail list and friendly, neighborhood service!

Great experience overall. I had the Frutti di Mare, delicious and plentiful serving, ate lots there and lots for leftovers. Ditto for my wife’s pasta with chicken and broccoli. Both A++.

Loved it! This was our second visit to Rossetti's and it was way better than the first over a year ago. We made reservations to eat before the show at North Shore Music Theater. When we went before, doing the same thing, service took forever, and we were there way too long. This time, they were so efficient. The waitress even asked if we were going to the show to be sure that we ordered our meals and it was delivered in a timely manner. We did not feel rushed and were able to enjoy the entire meal, including an app, while making it to the show in plenty of time. They served us fresh bread with oil for dipping, which was a yummy start to our night. We ordered the mussels as an appetizer. These were delicious (although there were a couple of sandy ones) and the white wine, garlic, and lemongrass was so flavorable. We love that it came with the bread for dunking and enjoying. The bread had a burnt taste to eat because it was grilled-some people like it that way but I didn't. Since it was so hot out and we were going to the show, we decided to split a dish instead of ending up with leftovers that we couldn't take. The waitress was very accommodating and brought our meal out on two plates!! That was awesome:) We assumed they would have brought it on one with an empty plate. We ordered the Parmigiana, with gnocchi and eggplant...Delicious!!! It was so flavorful and just the right amount of food to not feel too stuffed. The service throughout our night was impeccable. The table was cleared often, including the silverware begin changed in between our appetizer and meal. The atmosphere was very pleasant and relaxing. The food and service were fantastic. We knew we expected to pay a little bit with our meal, but it was worth it as we had enjoyed ourselves so much. Most of the cost in our meal was due to us having wine with our meal. We will definitely be back to enjoy another night at Rossetti's and look forward to trying something else on their menu!

Our book met here last night and stayed a leisurely amount of time. Our server could not been more helpful, pleasant, and informative. We couldn’t believe how many items were Hause made, including all of the pasta, mozzarella, sangria, and more. We all loved our meals and will definitely come again. We have tried the other one in Peabody and love it as well.

I have nothing but noce things to say about the place. the good was great. the room and the energy is really smooth and relaxing. the price was a little on the high end but i know how that goes, if it’s good it going to have a slightly high price tag. but all in all it was well worth it.
