Try Al Dente On Salem Street. I've always had a good meal here. For an app get the eggplant rollantini. It's baby eggpalnt rolled and stuffed with fresh ricotta. Baked and topped with mozzarella cheese and a very good marina sauce. They have homemade pastas. Try them with the bolognese sauce. It's a lot more touristy but i like Giacomos on Hanover street. If you like mussels they make a great dish using there giacomos sauce. They have very good pasta dishes. The make a butternut squash ravioli that is wonderful. When rachel ray was here she loved the pumpkin tortellini.
