    1. There is Tuscan Kitchen. I've only been to their market which has a nice selection of cheese, pasta, meat, baked goods, etc.

      I've heard good things about Kashmir Indian Restaurant.

      1. I second Tuscan Kitchen. The restaurant is very good. I grew up in Salem NH and I don't think there are any other restaurants worth visiting. Friends and I try to meet for lunch (went to the Tuscan Kitchen last spring) but have ended up meeting in a different town.

        1. If you go to Tuscan Kitchen, try what they do best, anything with their fresh made daily pastas.

          1. I livef in Salem and totally would not reccemend eating at Tuscan Kitchen.
            We found after many times, that the foods is so underwelming for the [price. So many issues that it is not worth it for the price that you pay.

            I would however say shop at the Market and make something special at home.

            Jocelyn's Mediterranean in Salem is good.
            We also like Lucciano's Cafe in Londonderry

            Kashmir is an absolute MUST!!

            Trattoria Amalfi is also quite good.

            ALso for Breakfast Try Maddie's,

              I agree on the Tuscan Kitchen. I was not too impressed with the market, and the cafe food we had there was not very good. If you've been to an Italian market in Boston, it just doesn't compare. I like the idea of going to Lawrence for ethnic offerings, and they have a little Italian place that just makes stuffed fried dough balls, can't remember the name, I just know its at the end of the Main Street in the city center, across from Tripoli Bakery.
