Well it was inevitable that two people who care passionately about their restaurant and food would eventually disagree on what they would describe for us as their “favorite.”  One said it was their “Frutti di Mare,” and the other said it was their “Lobster Chowder.”

So, we decided to showcase them both.






Shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels and calamari served in a spicy lobster based tomato sauce and tossed with linguine


The LOBTER CHOWDER …. well it has all the ingredients one believes should be in a lobster chowder, and spiced “just so.”

Linda and Maurizio invite you to try both of their favorites on your next trip to the North End.  And as Linda has been heard to say, “Grazie di tutto e buon appetito!”
