What to Order at La Summa?

We are heading to La Summa in the North End this weekend, and I was just wondering what some of their best dishes are. I've never been to La Summa, so I'm pretty excited about heading there. I've read a lot of good things about the place!

  1. Almost any of the "basics" are pretty good there. Last time I went, the arancini were quite good, as was the gnocci. I have friends who rave about the marsala dishes.

    1. The Arancini are excellent and the gnocci as well.

      My favorite dish there is the pappardelle con melanzane. The homemade pasta is very good, and not overcooked.

        Thanks, everybody. I ordered the arancin and the pappardelle con melanzane, both of which were tremendous. Their homemade pasta is pretty close to perfect.
