Hi folks-

I just recently moved to Boston and my sister is flying in tomorrow and I want to take her a nice place that is NOT stuffy or touristy - cheap, as well. Anywhere in the boston area will do - not looking to stay within any specific neighborhood. I know this question is rather broad, however any suggestions will do. PS- Italian fare or a steakhouse would be perfect! Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!!

    Grotto, Monica's, and Trattoria Toscana are all nice (but not stuffy or touristy), Italian, and serve very good food at reasonable prices.

      i had a good meal at panza also.

      if you want REALLY cheap, there is anchovies in the south end.
