Italian: Step into the chic digs of Via Matta and order up because this long standing Italian eatery has been winning raves for their homemade pasta for years. Made fresh daily in-house -- you'll find everything from the traditional and simple spaghetti aglio e olio con pomodoro (garlic, oil, fresh tomato) to trendy plates of Kale Chitarra with lobster, tomatoes, Thai basil, and chili flake. For those with a sweet tooth, dessert cannot be skipped as Via Matta is famous for their "mascarporeos"; these homemade, make-your-own oreos are seriously addictive and delicious. Skirting the edges of several Boston neighborhoods (Downtown, Back Bay, and the Theater District) you'll find its location in Park Square quite convenient. The menu changes with what's in season and fresh so each visit brings a new experience.
Lunch: This downtown Italian eatery is Boston's new sweetheart and offers Italian eats made from the freshest ingredients available with the menu changing regularly. Homemade goodies include traditional fare like spaghetti and veal, along with more exotic dishes like rabbit and octopus. Well-selected Italian wines satisfy aficionados and novices alike.
