Great atmosphere, very good food, BYOB

We were looking for something different after eating much seafood in the area. We found this restaurant very cozy, quaint and very well liked by the number of reservations that had been made prior to our arrival. My wife had the Veal Scallopini and I had the Bourbon Jambalaya - medium spicy. We... read more

Food was creative and excellent. I would have enjoyed the ambience and my meal more if their A/C hadn't succumb to the 90 degree temperature

This is a cozy, intimate restaurant that resembles an eclectically decorated living room. The food is better than momma used to make and service exceptional. You are going to love it!

We were downtown Rockport chatting it up a local women and we seemed to gravitate towards the central question in situation like this - "where is a go place to eat?" or "what would you recommend?" The folks in this area were you friendly and pleasant. She mentioned this bistro and so we gave it a shot. Let me tell... More

We always have a great experience at Lo Grasso's. You come into a very cozy environment, and are greeted by their wonderful staff. BYOB, so it help's on the bill. I've never had something I did not enjoy, but the Scallop's Puttanesca is my favorite. Nice salads to start, and to finish, they make their own desserts, which are worth... More

When you enter and you smell garlic, you know the food is probably good. Unfortunately, LoGrasso's did not smell like garlic. The lasagna was ok but a little gluey cheese-wise. The salad was pitiful- a few bits of lettuce with the dressing soaking it. It's BYOB so bring any alcohol. The ambiance is pretty nice.

It's always a Bella Notte when we eat at Lo Grasso's! We have been dining there for many years, way back to when it was a deli by day, restaurant by night! Don't be fooled by the location in a strip mall, this is a must stop for some of the best food in Rockport! Small and charming, a great... More
