Great food! Donna was a great waitress. The food was delicious! I had figs wrapped in prosciutto for an appetizer and it was phenomenal! My husband had the steak and could not believe how great it was. He didn't expect it! Great BYOB!!!!

Unexpectedly great Italian food. The shrimp scampi, veal, and chicken with vinegar peppers were terrific. As others have pointed out, the restaurant is small and the tables tight. However, the food makes up for it. Highly recommend.

I found this restaurant while walking by the beach on the last night of our New England vacation. The food was perfect, service was wonderful, and the atmosphere was gorgeous with the beach in the background! I had mussels with garlic and lemongrass sauce. My husband had a chicken pasta dish. We were both impressed with the layers of flavors... More

We've tried many dishes at Café Rossetti's, and they were all delicious. Even their pizza is outstanding. Their location is the best ... right across the street from the beach. The combination of food, location, and service make it an excellent experience for family, friends, or even business. I enjoy getting take-out, and sitting on the wall and watching the... More

Excellent food, great service. Chicken Margarita is my favorite. nice and crispy on the edges and wonderful lemony sauce. very generous. Pork chops are huge , my husbands favorite.. It is a very small place and we try to go before the crowds start around 6:00 . Family owned and Steve will make any thing you want.

This is a local restaurant for us - we can walk to it! - and it's my go-to place for: lunch with friends; lunch with business associates who don't get to eat by the ocean very often. The warm calamari salad is TO DIE FOR. The Italian sub is TO DIE FOR. My husband swears by the eggplant parm, and... More

This place ROCKS! I've been here 6 or 7 times in the last year and it is oh so good. The pasta is fresh home made and the taste is awesome. Everytime I eat here I truly enjoy the meal. Everything is fresh and made to order. A fine fine family owned resturant, that will never let you down!

The food is good but the restaurant is so small that tables are literally inches away from one another. We even had to lay our winter costs on our laps because there was nowhere to hang them

This is a local no frills good eatery. Noisy, when busy, fun place. Excellent wait staff (Donna D gave great suggestions). Marinated calamari salad and chicken with vinegar peppers and potato were outstanding. Good bread. BYOB, everything that went by looked very good and everyone was happy. Good for the wallet and the stomach.
