Just came from dinner at TT. (Gawd, I could make an entire meal out of the pappa al pomodoro.) The good news for us addicts is they are not going to shut down for vacation this summer. They may take some time around Christmas instead - but that's not for sure.

  1. That is good news. TT is one our favorite destinations even with the hassle of parking and scheduling around Sox games. Zamir and his wife exceed expectations a vast majority of the time.

    1. Thanks for the nudge! I just put up a TT this weekend note on the bathroom mirror! We walk in by way of Park Drive and avoid the baseball stuff. And, you can park elsewhere in the city and take the Queensbury bus to the corner of Jersey if you don't want to walk.

      1. Their answering machine is not on and I'm trying to make plans for tonight. What time do they open? 5 pm or 5:30?

        1. Managed to squeeze in a quick dinner before the game the other night. Excellent as usual. Tried a new dish (to me), the spaghetti al merluzzo (or words to that effect), pasta in a tomato sauce topped with sauteed cod, lovely. Wine list has been revamped a bit, a number of interesting new choices. Still one of my favorite places.

            I also like this dish. TT is one of this city's jewels.

          2. non-game weeknights before 7pm.. haven't had a problem yet :)

            1. A friend spent he afternoon at the Art Nouveau Jewery Exhibit at the MFA (wonderful- I will go again before it leaves) and walked across the Fenway to Toscana for a perfect supper.

              We had the chicken liver and the sausage and spinach crostini, I had the cod ragu and she had a spicy penne. Chef also sent us a taste of the tomato stew- loved it!

              Service was wonderful and the room was mostly filled by the time we left. This is a gem as so many of you have said. We walked in and out via Park Drive and didn't have much contact with the baseball crowd so even on gamey nights (as we call them around here) it is easy to enjoy TT.

              1. Trattoria Toscana won Best of Boston "Affordable Italian" from Boston Magazine again this year. The issue is out and should be on newstands by now.
