Where can I get a great pepperdelle dish in Boston?

  1. Do you mean pappardelle? Mama Maria w/rabbit, Taranta w/porcini, Trattoria Toscana w/wild boar, Trattoria di Monica alla Bolognese...

        +2 on Trattoria Toscana. Also, love the Pappardelle Bolognese at Highland Kitchen in Somerville.

        Toscana sounds great with the wild boar; unfortunately we will be in town on Sunday and Toscana is closed.

          Both Trattoria di Monica and Vinoteca di Monica are open on Sundays. They are both excellent, and both should have some pappardelle (or a similar long flat noodle) dish on the menu. The Vinoteca was serving it with rabbit a couple weeks back.

      3. Pappardelle e Melanzane at La Summa. It's lighter, for a pasta dish, and delicous.

        1. Toscana's version is pretty awesome.

          For a spirituallly similar but non-pappardelle alternative, I'd suggest the Fettuccine di Bruno at Coppa. It's a dish that's typically made with chestnut flour pappardelle, but for some reason at Coppa they are making it with skinnier chestnut-flour fettucini with a wild boar ragu and roasted chestnuts. Very seasonally appropriate, and exactly what you'd get (made with Pappardelle) in Tuscany this time of year.
