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

Good food, Donna and Sal are super and love the menu and Donna's desserts are sinful. Pleasant , not large and I love the quirkiness.

Visited Rockports Xmas Pageant in mid Dec. to find most restaurants closed for season. Shopkeeper recommended LoGrassos, where the locals dine. Close to the train station, easy to pass by, but wonderful & warm inside. Great Italian and seafood meals. Had the raviolis in a white cream sauce w/sausage & mushroom. Lots of excellent choices. A bit upscale than most... More

Because of trouble with a local innkeeper we had to cancel our dinner reservation at the last minute. I would like to say that the lady I spoke with on the phone was very friendly and courteous both when I made the reservation and when I cancelled. If we ever do go back to Rockport, Lo Grasso's will be first... More

Nice atmosphere. Don't let the strip mall setting put you off. Lovely once you are inside. It is BYOB. No liquor is served. A $2 per person corkage charge. The food, however, is very average. However, given that there are few restaurants in Rockport for a romantic meal in the winter, this is an acceptable choice. Just keep your expectations... More
