We decided to go back to Rosettis on Brimbal Ave in Beverly for dinner last week. It had been recommended by our friends Chris and Charleen and we have been once but hadn’t been back in quite a while. There are so many fine restaurants right here in Gloucester, it’s hard to leave town for another but it was a special occasion and we have been wanting to return here for this Italian themed dining experience. We were not disappointed.
We had the half antipasti board as an appetizer and it was plenty for the two of us. I tried a pomegranate martini (very tasty) and Jim had a pinot grigio. There was a surf and turf special which I ordered and Jim got the Chicken Braciolettini with red sauce. My filet was done to perfection and I appreciated that our server Dan explained that the kitchen prefers to prepare the meat medium rare, which is my preference as well. After we enjoyed our entrees, I had an Irish coffee (not bad for an Italian joint) and Jim ordered the sorbet. In the end, the trip “off island” for this meal was well worth it.
It was busy even for a weeknight, so I would recommend reservations. There are a variety of seating options: bar, table booth, round, patio etc. There was plenty of staff which is tricky for establishments these days. The servings were nicely paced; I did not feel rushed at all. Servers were attentive and helpful. I was happy we made the choice to go to Rosettis.
