Six of us will be returning to LoGrasso's tomorrow night!! We have eaten there multiple times and have always enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. I for one am glad they ASK if you want bread since many people are now low carb or gluten free....restaurants lose a lot of money when bread is wasted.....and the paper on the tables... More

Stopped on a Friday evening w/o a reservation, hostess (owner?) let us have a table that was reserved for an hour or so later. She asked if that was enough time, I said that is up to the kitchen staff not me. Food, ambiance, server and overall feel for this place was wonderful. Not often do I look for Italian... More

Lo Grasso’s features an old-fashioned Southern Italian style of cuisine that can be tasty, explaining the many rave reviews here. It may not not be gourmet, but some items, like the scampi appetizer, can be addictive. Like most Italian family style restaurants, they load some dishes with pasta and a heavy, oil-drenched tomato sauce. You won’t leave hungry, as the... More

Given the other choices in Rockport, this is probably the best place to have dinner. It's cute, has good atmosphere, and the food is fine, in the sense of okay. Nothing spectacular, but better than other choices there. I would recommend it and would go back.

My favorite place to go for Italian food. The fried calamari pepperchini is great. I always order the Scallops Puttanesca, although the chicken or veal marsala is also a favorite of mine. I have been to other italian eateries and the Marsala dish from LoGrasso's is the best! I enjoy the BYOB because I am able to bring my own... More

While in Rockport on a pleasure trip, someone recommended this restaurant. When I walked in I was asked if we had reservations which I did not. Although indicating they were full, they found a table for my wife and I. In looking over the menu, it seemed a bit pricey. I was also surprised to see that they did not... More

We were attending a concert at Shalin Liu last evening, and hoped for a nice dinner beforehand. Gloucester has a number of good restaurants, but because the theatre is in Rockport, we thought something close by would assure getting there on time. We couldn't be happier with our choice. Lo Grasso's Café Bistro is small and quaint. There were so... More

When people ask me "Where should I eat in Rockport" this is where I send them- Good, straightforward, Italian comfort food- seafood casseroles, North End pork chops, calamari- all great. Plentiful portions and warm, friendly service- You feel like you're in Sal's home- I love this place- Prices are reasonable and they are still BYOB with a very nominal corkage... More
