Il Casale is located in the heart of Belmont at 50 Leonard Street. Acclaimed Chef Dante de Magistris and his brothers Damian and Filippo, the team behind the celebrated Restaurant Dante in Cambridge, have joined forces once again to bring rustic, authentic Italian cuisine to their hometown. The cucina Italiana, which is housed in Belmont’s historic firehouse, offers a beautiful brick patio, white marble bar, and barnwood tables for a unique and enjoyable dining experience. Il Casale is open Monday through Sunday. For reservations and more information please call 617-209-4942 or log on to www.ilcasalebelmont.com.<br /><br />“I loved a lot of restaurants this year, wantonly and casually, and then I moved on. il Casale was one I loved seriously; it’s a keeper. Chef Dante de Magistris and his family hit this one out of the park.” - Devra First, Boston Globe

"We always are in a feel good mood as we leave, and remind ourselves to come back. The food is delicious. There were three of us and we split the salumi plate, burrata appetizer, and green salad to start. I had the special pasta dish of the night and my sister had the Gorgonzola pasta dish. We both felt the half portions were filling and perfect. My husband had the grilled seafood of the night and loved it. The waiter was knowledgeable and efficient. The runners were quick to refill our water glasses and bread without our asking. The atmosphere was lively but not loud."

Island Creek Oyster Bar is named simply after our farmer, built on the ideal of bringing guests closer to the farm. Chef Jeremy Sewall offers a daily changing menu with a raw bar featuring Island Creek Oysters and an updated, seasonal selection of New England seafood.

"Knowledgable staff.
Excellent Oysters. When we told our waiters our favorites from the first round, he made recommendations and we had a second round.
For dinner, we agreed our dishes were some of the best seafood dishes we have had in a long time. Finished up with freshly made and still hot ginger donuts for dessert - with excellent drip coffee. Can't wait to go back and bring our friends.
