  1. I don't travel to that area often, but the closest thing I know to you that is really good and worth the drive (we come from the South Shore) is Theresa's Italian Eatery in Middleton. The veal and eggplant parm combo is delicious with the homemade fusili. Wish I could jump in the car right now just thinking about it.

    1. In Salem, NH Ralphies on rte 28 is very good, La Tratoria on Main St. in Gloucester is also good and they have a coupon in IMO, for the best, try Rino's in.
      E. Boston.

      1. The Antique Table on the Lynn/Swampscott line is a charming little place with good Italian

        1. Bella Verona is Salem is excellent, next to the Hawthorne Hotel. They also have a sister restaurant in Beverly Trattoria Bella Mia. In Gloucester, La Trattoria & Pizzeria on Main Street is also one of our favorites.

            Gallo Nero in Peabody square is very good, doesn't look like much, but the food is great!

          2. Anyone been to Artichokes in Wakefield?
            I'm meeting some people there on Thursday and have note heard much about this place recently.
            Any insight is appreciated.
