Loretta's has moved from a small space on State Street (which always felt a bit cramped to me), to a much larger location on Pleasant. The renovation of the space makes for a perfect dining experience. The food is still delicious, the service is great and the prices are reasonable. Great spot for a lunch or dinner with friends.

The menu was rather limited, but everyone liked what they had ordered. Servings were generous and prices were very reasonable.

We just met friends from out of state and decided to meet at Loretta's. Great choice, the menu had a good variety. Everyone loved their meal, one might have not been as hot as expected, but we were a large group. The staff was friendly, service needs a little work. Plates were not cleared, I asked for coffee and the... More

Seemed a bit overrated, based on the Tripadvisor reviews. Went for lunch during off hours and the food took a long time to come out. Three out of the 4 in our party were pleased with the food, so 75% success. Maybe they need a little more time now that they have moved to their new location.

Ted's presence is the heart and soul of Loretta. A hello, how are ya and is your meal up to expectation? Very nice touch and its still part of the charm in Loretta's new location at 17 Pleasant Street in the former Macro Polo retail space. Wednesday night featured two sumptuous seafood entrees - Swordfish and scallops. Loretta's House salad... More

Small menu. Everyone loves to see the owner working. Although Ted is in his sixties I guess "if you like your job you never work a day in your life" Lunch prices very reasonable.

My favorite Newburyport restaurant just got better (and bigger). The new location is something special. Truly a Newburyport gem. The food is always good and the prices incredibly reasonable. Can't say enough about Ted and his staff, can't single anyone out as they are all very personable and want their diners to go away happy. We always do!

This place has a great lunch menu: delicious burgers a d unbelievable fries. We have had dinner there a couple of times and on most occasions the owner likes to come over and chat, especially when one is eating. Not recommended.

Loretta's recently moved from State Street around the corner on Pleasant Street. This gives the restaurant much more room and some needed breathing space. The bar is along the right side and is attractive, inviting and very well stocked. The dining area takes up the left side and is airy, welcoming and comfortable. We made reservations (recommended during the busy... More
