One year ago we had dinner here with friends from overseas. They enjoyed it so much they specifically requested we return to Rosetti's for a celebratory dinner with some additional family members. We had an 8:00 reservation and their flight was on time, but they...were delayed by navigating through the airport and car rental service. Rosetti's could not have been nicer about about accommodating us and the servers even stayed late to ensure we were able to enjoy our meal in a relaxed fashion. As always, the food was delicious. Can't say enough nice things about this place!More

This was our first time dining at Rosetti's. We were looking for a place in proximity to a place that we needed to be after dinner, and selected Rosetti's based on many favorable reviews. We made a reservation for 5:30, and only could get "bar"...seating. But as luck had it, the chef's table was open. This table is literally overlooking the kitchen area. We were greeted warmly by the staff in the kitchen. You can see everyone working hard. Chef Rossetti is right there giving direction and guidance to make sure the food went out looking its best. When you are seated, you get fresh bread and flavored dipping oil. We started with the Rhode Island Calamari with Balsamic vinegar. Delicious and crispy. I was at first concerned because it came out so fast, but it didn't disappoint! I also had an Upper East Side cocktail, which was a tasty gin craft cocktail. For dinner I had the Shrimp Scampi entree. It was served with 5 jumbo shrimp and broccoli rabe, the largest shrimp I had ever seen (4 to 5 inches each), very fresh. The accompanying pasta was garlicky and very buttery. The broccoli rabe was more of a garnish then a side. The pasta was too rich, and I couldn't finish it (made a good leftover the next day). We also had the pan roasted salmon which was perfectly prepared, still moist with a crisp finish. Delicious and fresh. We rounded out the the meal with 3 mini cannolis, espresso and cappuccino. Mr. Rossetti, the chef and owner greeted us, and came by a couple of times to make sure everything was good. The service was attentive. Overall a great experience, and nice ambiance. I would recommend Rosetti's. Make a reservation in advance if you want a table. There is convenient parking in the municipal lot next to the restaurant.More

We loved the food and ambience as some great friends of ours met at Rosetti's in Lynn. Especially wanted to thank Deirdre L. for her excellent care of us as our food server.

My nephew took us to Lynne MA, which has faced struggles to shake an image as a marginal community and seems to be rebranding itself with an aggressive redevelopment program. Had dinner at Rossetti Restaurant, an Italian eatery, with Al Fresco Dining made comfortable with...heaters. My wife had a beautifully prepared Halibut with creamy Risotto, my nephew a delicious Haddock, and I tried the Chicken Parm which comes with freshly made Cavatelli. My disf was as I like and was better than the last 2 restaurants, which were essentially, fried chicken smothered with pasta sauce and melted cheese. Espresso drinks with the Chocolate Torta and Assorted Canolis nicely finished our meal. It was a bit pricey for Italian Cuisine but understandable for a Lynne restaurant closed 3 months for Covid. We'll definitely consider revisiting on our next trip.More

On a recent visit to see our son's apartment, he suggested dinner at Rossetti's which is a convenient walk within downtown Lynn. Being very COVID aware, we asked for sidewalk seating on a pleasant Saturday evening. The staff was very friendly and attentive, despite having...to come outside to deliver drinks/food or check on us. I had swordfish "chops" which I'd not heard of before, a delicious dish with great sides. The others also enjoyed their meals, and wine was reasonable by the bottle. Our waitress Nicole was outstanding, the support crew great, and owner Robert Rossetti spent some quality time chatting with us about food, greater Boston, and life. Cheers!More

My wife and I started the new year with an astounding meal while enjoying this restaurant’s atmosphere that is both warm and inviting. The restaurant staff is friendly and impeccably trained. We started our meal with their evening special gnocchi appetizer – it was light...and flavorful. We followed that by splitting their Caesar Salad – it, too, was wonderful. My wife ordered the swordfish that was featured on their evening specials. It was a beautiful dish with a perfect preparation of the swordfish. I took the manager’s recommendation having the short rib ragu - it was all that he said it would be - outstanding. We finished off our meal with dessert. My wife had the terrific limoncello cake and I had the classic Vanilla Crème Brule accompanied coffee. Our server, Roty, was super in waiting on us and paced our meal perfectly. Overall, their staff is terrific from the front of the house to the table service. I can see why this is such a popular restaurant in Lynn where their local customers are so proud and freely extol the virtues of this great restaurant. Definitely, we will be back.More

We were going to a concert down the street from the restaurant so we saw the sign and wandered in. Unfortunately we were unaware of the popularity of this Italian gem and were told they didn't have a reservation for hours. However the wonderful woman...at the door offered us seats at the bar and told us we could also eat there; we jumped at the chance. OMG we were so pleased we did, the food was unbelievably good and the service amazing. The bartenders and the wait staff treated us like we were regulars and made our experience incredible. The icing was when the head chef came by, asked how we liked the food and if he could make our experience better. Class act all the way around!More

Happily, we had reservations for six and were seated immediately at 5:30 PM on a Saturday night. A round table is always best for a larger group and we were seated at the only one. The decor is lovely, very uncluttered and modern. Service was...prompt and the food and drinks arrived very quickly. A veal chop was one of the specials and it looked like what Fred Flintstone ate in the opening of the show! Chicken and bolognese dishes were very tasty. Mini cannolis, nothing special. A very, very pleasant evening, perfect for a special occasion.More

We have dined here many times and the food is always good. The waitstaff are friendly and there's parking right across the street. If I have one issue, and it's been this way forever, it is that if your dinner comes with pasta and you...don't want the carbs (because you already had 1...2 or more pieces of bread with olive oil, when you ask for a veggie side they always say sure but there is an up charge. Seriously? Rossetti is good, but not inexpensive. A veal chop can be almost if not $40.00. Lose the up charge and I'd give it 5 stars. C'mon owners; show the love that you get from your patrons.More

I am stunned at what we just found. I have not been to dinner in downtown Lynn in over thirty years. Never knew this place existed, but found it on Open Table, great reviews, and tried it. OMG, run, do not walk to this place....It is fantastic in every way. Easy to park, great food, decent wine list that is fairly priced with lots of mid range selections and some high end ones for those needing those options. Matt our server was perfect. Great suggestions and right on the ball. His suggestions for the zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta and pecorino was fabulous. We tried the typical eggplant and veal part and veal Marsala, and my favorite was a baked haddock on asparagus risotto that was amazing. Also, the soft shell crab appetizer was perfect. We will make this a must on all future trips back to the area.More

We have not been to Rossetti’s in awhile. This restaurant will never disappoint . Their food is always delicious. They have a great menu and always have fabulous specials to choose from. One of my favorites is the Chicken cutlet with spinach and cream sauce...and my husband loves their Veal parmigiana. We also had the shrimp scampi flatbread appetizer. Everything is so delicious. In the past I have had their Salmon, eggplant appetizer, calamari appetizer. It does not matter what you order you will never be disappointed.More

We had heard wonderful things about this restaurant but unfortunately, the noise level is so loud you can't have a proper conversation with even the person beside you. I thoroughly enjoyed the pasta and eggplant parmigiana.
