We were in Rockport for 3 nights/4 days. Lo Grasso's was the best restaurant by far: great food, friendly service, mostly locals who knew each other and b.y.o.b. Well worth the short walk from Bearskin Neck. Get your water views there, and decilicious food here!

Found this on the road out of Rockport by the Railway Station. Food was good, plenty of it and very welcoming owners. Make sure you take your own liquor as not licensed

As a formerly dry town, Rockport has few restaurants you can go to all year, because it is hard to survive without serving alcohol. Lo Grasso's has not only survived but thrived, just by serving excellent Italian food. And you can bring your own wine!...More

We enjoyed our meal at LoGrasso's and would gladly return. I had the roast duck, which was tender and crispy with a delicious sweet glaze - just enough - and my husband enjoyed the pork chops. We liked the portion size - not preciously small...More

Rockport is still dry or semi-dry. Lo Grasso does not charge a corkage fee; so save a bundle and bring your own favorite. Outside, this place is nothing. There is decent parking, but it is nowhere near the quaint center of town. But, oh, I...More

We enjoyed our dinner here. The restaurant is charming, small, with nice ambience. The food was good. It is a BYOB which is really nice, too.

Was delighted with warm, tasteful atmosphere. Was very impressed with menu creativity. I had side linguini with garlic crumbs. (Garlic what?). Had never heard of that. Mmmmmm! Also had wilted mesclun greens salad with portobello, red pepper, goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. Oh, my. What...More

Visiting Rockport August 2015 and read the reviews, ready for something other than the fish which we dearly love. Be forewarned that it is a small strip mall and you'll think you're in the wrong place. I believe the husband is the chef and wife...More

There aren't a lot of dinner choices weeknights in fall in Rockport so we were pleased to find an Italian restaurant open. The menu choices were relatively standard and uninspired. I've eaten enough calamari to know that it shouldn't have the texture of rubber hose...More
