This is a nice italian restaurant in the “italian district” of Boston, where it’s hard to distinguish one restaurant from another, with nice ambience and really great food. Julian ordered wild mushroom ravioli and I ordered filet Mignon. Though the service was a little slow, the ambience is very romantic and the food is absolutely wonderful–some of the best I’ve ever had. We were so pleased with this restaurant! Both of our dishes were to die for.

We found this great little place that many student go to because it’s cheap. It is simple, but brilliant, selling only pasta and salad of high quality. A great find!

Julian and I went to Gigi’s yesterday and ordered the parmesan fries and cheese plate as appetizers and the BARBINA salad (Organic Baby Greens, Roasted Beets, Butternut Squash, Mushrooms, Coach Farm Goat Cheese, Toasted Walnuts and Gigi Sherry-Shallot Vinaigrette) and ANGOLOTTI (Butternut Squash and Mascarpone Filled Ravioli, Parmesan, and Crumbled Amaretti). The fries were warm and crunchy, but with less parmesan than they usually come with and the cheese plate came on a wooden cutting board with grapes, apple butter, and almonds. Though it would have been nice if each cheese came with a label. The butternut squash ravioli was heavenly and the salad was nicely prepared with an added touch of walnuts that was diced into small pieces. I don’t much care for beets, but they were easy to avoid. The dressing was also quite light and delicious. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Note: the BIANCA skizza (Coach Farm Goat Cheese, Mozzarella, Gigi Fig Jam preserve, Pear, Arugula and White Truffle Oil) is also a unique pizza that is a must try!

My boyfriendand I went to Pizza and Pasta and I ordered the butternut squash lasagna ($16) and he ordered a pizza ($18). The pizza came out with one piece of basil and cheese very carelessly placed. Though it was good, it was not worth $18. My lasagna was completely cold. Also, the service was the absolute worst I’ve had. Clearly the management of this restaurant is very poor. I do not recommend it here, nor would I go again. There are far better places in New York.
But, Eataly is a pretty cool place to visit. It is like a fancy version of Fairways or Zabars. I had a sampling of the ricotta and spinach ravioli and it was delicious. They make their bread, pasta, and mozzarella on the premises (to be seen).

On Sunday, we went to Cafe Cibon, a restaurant in our favorite part of Rochester. We ordered the “Parmesan Cream Pasta” (Parmesan, garlic, olive oil and white wine with fresh peas and parsley) and a pizza which I unfortunately don’t remember the name of, but it had bleu cheese, tomato and a type of lettuce on it. Neither of us where terribly thrilled with our meals, and though not to expensive, I’m not sure I would become a regular of the restaurant. However, the “Cheese Plate” Appetizer is delicious and the atmosphere is cosy, so it’s definitely worth trying once.
[The menu isn't quite up to date, as I noticed while trying to remember the name of the pizza we ordered.]
