Where can I get the best pasta Carbonara in Boston or the area? I am tired of eating bad stuff.

    From my carbonara days, I remember that every restaurant had their own interpretation. Two stood out as being interesting. Sorrentos in Fenway and Groceria in Cambridge. I think Sorrentos used prosciutto instead of pancetta and had the noodles swimming in this very flavorful, eggy sauce. Groceria made their own noodles, which was yummy. Their portions was a bit small. I also remember being overwhelmed and surprised by the amount of parsley they had on it.

      The best Carbonara I've had in Boston is at Ristorante Saraceno on Hanover Street in the North end.
