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

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

    1. 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.
