Average Italian Fare

Pizza is so so and the italian food tastes like it comes from a jar. Good strong drinks from the bar however if that's your thing.

I have been going to Bertinis since I was a child. My dad would take me for pizza on Friday nights. Then as an adult I took my child. Best pizza ever. It's different but delicious. Great Italian food. Great fried seafood. Great prices. Bar has keno and friendly people. Love it there.

We thought we were going to get some authentic Italian food.... just plain meat sauce with a tasteless meatball. No flavor what so ever. The lasagna was missing the cheese, best I could tell it was only noodle and sauce. The Salad was great, and the bread was great, but the Italian pasta dishes were awfully disappointing. Our server was... More

I was working on a film in the area and was in walking distance of Bertini's and decided to give it a try. Honestly,...best Burger and Fries I've had at a restaurant in a long time. Fresh, crispy, tasty! I actually didn't realize what some restaurant burgers were missing until I had Bertini's to compare it too. Absolutely delicious! I... More

About a year ago I wrote a review of Bertini's . The restaurant decor has just been updated to a new, brighter, more modern look. That has only enhanced the friendly, homey atmosphere that has made Bertini's a pleasant dining experience for over 50 years.

North shore institution a lot like Monte's in Lynn and Sam & Joes in Danvers. If you grew up on the North Shore it might be good but I grew up in an Italian area and this is not Italian food.

Got MAJOR attitude about splitting checks for our large group. Bar was minimally stocked and had nothing high-end. Seafood was excellent and would have returned for the food if had received better service. Sadly were made to feel like an imposition

the food is wonderful here. the restaurant decor could use a bit of an update but the service is excellent and the specials are plentiful. seafood wonderful. pasta sometimes a little overdone. the steak teriyaki salad is a favorite of mine. the parmesean peppercorn salad dressing is to die for. desserts are wunnnnderful....no calories in these!
