God Eats in Somerville area?

Would like to plan a great lunch with my special sister somewhere in the Somerville area. Can anyone recommend a restaurant they have eaten in within the last month?

    DaFillipo's on the east part of Somerville's Main Street is one of the last of the truly gracious, and wonderful. generation of Italian restaurants. The chef is a Master of classic Italian cooking, great ingredients- the place has great service-- and if you are fortunate the chef will come out to play piano & sing operatic selections or classic Italian songs. Pricing is reasonable, considering the high, high quality of food and service here. Lunch or dinner-- a GREAT place...

      I second Da Fillipo's. The risotto is awesome.

      i second origins- never had a bad meal there. if you like sushi there is always shumi as well.

        I'm guessing God eats wherever He wants to. :)

            If Gordon Ramsey can fix MIke & Nellie's imagine what God can do for Il Pomodoro...
