Love Italian food? This is the place for you. You can’t go to Boston and not eat here. Mezzi Rigatoni, Clam Risotto, Risotto alla Pitocca, this menu is unbelievable. It’s definitely on the pricier side but beyond worth it. Head over to 569 Columbus Ave to see everything SRV has to offer your tastebuds.
Seafood is a personal favorite of mine. If you’ve never been to Row 34, what are you waiting for? Let me name a few of my favorites, and sorry if the list gets long. Spicy Lobster Tacos, Sweet Corn Soup, Seared Tuna Salad, Warm Buttered Lobster Roll, and Griddled Crab Cake. Need I say more?
Like the website says, “The North End is Filled With Italian Restaurants, but This One is Different From The Rest.” Once home to Paul Revere, Mamma Maria sits on a hilltop overlooking the streets of Boston. With a daily changing dinner menu, there’s always something new to try here. I highly recommend the swordfish or tuna tartare, but like I said, seafood is a personal favorite of mine.
