Woburn, Massachusetts - places to eat
I will be in Woburn on business for a few days this week.
Could you all recommend some local places to eat, excluding national chains and the like.
I would particularly like recommendations for medium priced Italian food, Brazilian, and a Jewish deli if one exists out there.
We will have an auto so we are not limited to the immediate area of our hotel
Thanks in advance

The part of Woburn (by the way, pronounced Woo-buhn) you are likely to be in is not exactly thick with exciting dining possibilities. Nearby towns have some nice places, like Angelo's in Stoneham, Ristorante Molise in Wakefield, Turner's Seafood in Melrose, etc. More distant climes, like Cambridge and Gloucester, are the local Portuguese population centers, but nothing close to you that I recall off the top of my head. How close Boston is depends entirely on traffic -- anywhere from 20 minutes upwards....inbound traffic in the evening can be as bad as in the morning.
these people don't know what they're talking about. For italian my suggestion is to go to Polcaris on Montvale Ave. It's part of a small chain but very good. Another little restaraunt is 315 Main. Location is also the name of the restaraunt. Very very good and dependable. Also try South End Cafe on Main Street. Also very good for lunch!!!
Try Portobellos in wakefield. Italian with portugese influence. slooow service but great food and cozy atmosphere with booths.especially the saffron cream sauce. Molise has a very good italian lunch buffet midweek. My Brothers Place in Woburn center has a good slice of pizza and across the street, Felicias(in Woburn but from the North End) has the best eggplant parm around and its cheap at lunch. If you want expensive and really crazyfunky atmosphere,and a long wait try cafe fiorentino on main st in Woburn. Its a gamble tho, cuz some of her creations on a many paged menus are the most amazing looking and tasting things you'll ever see , but some arent so hot and the wait staff can be really stuck up For Jewish go to Brookline, for Brazil, Cafe Brazil in brighton, both outside boston Post when you get back and let us know what you liked and didnt like!
