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.
Local Expert Jessica Polizzotti Says:
Italian: "There is a secret chef's table in the kitchen available for private dining events for parties as small as 2 or as big as 10; it's not promoted anywhere but is available upon request. You can get a front row view of the kitchen action, and if you're interested, can even go behind the line with Chef to prepare an authentic Italian dish."
Best for Italian Because: Via Matta is the place for jazzed-up homemade pasta and expertly crafted specialties from Piedmont, Tuscany and Liguria and Emilia Romagna.
