Some pasta dishes.
I have to admit that this looks like a devil dog with chocolate syrup.
I'm not sure what the next two deserts are but I'll bet they're good.
I'm not sure if this is a desert or an appetizer.
You could also buy their fresh homemade pasta made from imported flour. What difference that makes is beyond me. On the right you can see the ravioli that I had. There were other displays of imported items.
Ten or fifteen years ago this city had the usual array of fast food places and pizza parlors. There was an Italian restaurant which has been around for at least as long as I have. It's in the south part of the city, not surprisingly, the Italian part of the city. There's nothing wrong with this restaurant but parking is an issue. It's more of a neighborhood place. You can't park on the side streets because you have to have a neighborhood parking sticker. But there are more than enough people in the neighborhood to keep this place going though I would have to say Real Gusto is a step above. Aside from that place if you wanted a really good meal you had to travel a bit. Add a hotel because of our close proximity to Boston and presto a whole bunch of very good restaurants. They probably won't all survive but the economy around here is doing well at the moment and it's good to see the city buzzing with activity even though getting around can be tough. Below
So I have to say Arlene and I may have found a new favorite restaurant. The food and deserts were wonderful. The restaurant was nicely decorated. The staff was friendly with one young lady sporting what we would call a southern accent. It's a bit pricey. The most expensive meal was $26,00. Add in a drink or two, an appetizer and it can add up. Still we will go again just not for a few weeks. Below is a video on the restaurant from YouTube. Below that is a link to a video on the restaurant's web page. The owners tell the story of coming to this country and opening their restaurant. At this point I don't know if it work.
Oh well I guess I'm outta here.
