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

I had Alaskan pesto salmon, my friend had chicken cacciatore, both excellent. Hard to resist eating all bread: so good. 0wner Donna served us, very friendly, caring. I had not eaten here for a while ( too long) but I will return soon.

A great find in Rockport! Cozy, warm, and delicious! We had the veal marsala, and veal parmesan and they were both fabulous. It is a slow-paced restaurant where you can enjoy and savor your meal and your company, so be sure to make reservations early enough if you have someplace else to be. Loved the BYOB, saved some money and... More

My husband and I tried to dine here a year ago, but without reservations, there was no way....I called a month ahead of our trip to Rockport this year and was all set with my reservation, until we arrived and were told there was no reservation in our name....since Lo Grasso's does not book through Open Table, I had no...

A little gem of a restaurant like I would expect in Italy. Husband is the chef, Donna is the main waitress...only one during the week. Excellent service, one of the best meals we have had anywhere, at a very reasonable price. Only drawback is hard to find...small sign, but wow would I go back there again.

We lived on Cape Ann for many years, and became devotees of LoGrasso's after our first visit way back. I had often commented that it was the equal or better of anything Boston's North End offered. We returned to Cape Ann and the Boston area this past fall after a 4-year absence, and visitng LoGrasso's was just like going...well, home.... More

What a great find! The atmosphere was delightful; the service was outstanding, and the meal was delicious. My husband enjoyed chicken cacciatore, and I loved the crab cakes. The chocolate cake dessert could send me to heaven! Donna, the hostess was extremely attentive and made us feel like family. We loved our restaurant experience at LoGrasso's and can't wait to...

LoGrassos is a local gem and the best restaurant in Rockport. Owner chef Sal proudly cooks Italian specialities on his regular menu as well as daily specials often timed with the seasons. Everything is delicious. His sauces are superb. On our last visit I had the lamb special, yummy and perfectly cooked, and my husband had shrimp scampi, a delicious... More

We eat out a lot and this is our favorite restaurant. We've had everything on the menu and all the specials and have NEVER had a bad meal. Compare it to North End of Boston, restaurants in Italy, there isn't a finer place to eat on Cape Ann! Just go. Why would you ever leave the Cape? And you can... More
