  1. Try Lil' Vinnies on Medford Street in Somerville. I have never gotten the Chicken Parm,but a friend of mine swears by it.I got the Veal Marsala,it was very good.

    1. You must be really craving that chick parm bad. This is the third time you've posted about it in 2 days. 'Nuff said!

      1. Never tried chicken parma in Boston (though I lived in the North End for two years). For a great Western suburbs c.p. try "Sweet Basil" in Needham.

        The chef/owner Dave describes his cooking as "eye-talian" (i.e. American-Italian). Very robust flavours and hearty portions.

        Go on an empty stomach - it'd be a shame to be stopped out after the "appetizer".

        n.b. no booze license so bring your own.

        1. Carlo's Cucina on Brighton Ave in Allston. The outside is nothing special, but the food is amazing.
