Good Red Sauce Italian

  • 9

Hi folks,

Looking for a good red sauce italian restaurant that takes reservations. This is for a graduation dinner, so am looking for nice decor too (though it doesn't need to be super fancy). Thanks in advance!

      Anywhere in the greater Boston area would be fine, as we have wheels. Thanks!

    2. Carlo's on Brighton Ave in Allston.

      1. L'Osteria in the North End

        1. Will second Carlo's in Allston. In the North End, would recommend Pagliuca's, Maurizio's, or Saraceno's.

            1. La Groceria in Cambridge or L'Osteria in Boston, or Mother Anna's in Boston.

              1. I also second (or third!) Carlo's in Allston/Brighton. I also heartily recommend Abbondanza in Everett. Among other things, they have terrific tripa alla Romana.

                1. The best place i would recommend is Bocelli's in Medford--this place is definately a red sauce type of restaurant and the food is fantastic and reasonable--always fresh!!

                  This is perfect for a graduation--they also have different private rooms--Check this out!!

                  tell them Frankie Imbergamo sent you!! see nicky the owner!!

                  Enjoy Bocelli's in South Medford on Main st.
