Eat out and feel at home! Chef Tony Maws - winner of the James Beard Award for Best Chef, Northeast - combines French-inspired “nose -to-tail refined rusticity” with ”no exceptions” local, seasonal, & organic or natural ingredients. Enjoy the bar (Food & Wine’s ”Top 100 in US”), ”Our Sunday Best Brunch”, and Tasting Menus …Thanks to GQ for naming us #2 (!) in 10 Best New US Restaurants, Food Network for “Best Breakfast in MA”, Boston Magazine for 2010 “Best Bigtime Chef” and Boston Globe for one of ”The 10 Most Influential Restaurants” of the decade. We are the third most popular restaurant in Boston, says Zagat and one of the Top 100 Wine Restaurants in the US, says Wine Enthusiast!

"The service was phenomenal. The donut didn't disappoint; it was probably the best thing we had. Very nice cappuccino and lovely glasses of sparkling red. The wine was actually reasonably priced. My husband got *the burger* and he said it was good but not memorable or one of the best he's ever had. I know it is a meaty place and I get that and appreciate that they accommodate my silly vegetarian ways, but I essentially paid $21 for an okay grilled cheese. In our opinion, it is overpriced to begin with and even moreso when you are paying the same price for a paired down non-meat meal. This was our experience when we went for dinner as well. The food was good, but there are several places we'd rather go for better food and value."

Bricco’s star has been rising steadily since restaurateur Frank DePasquale revamped the menu to feature modern interpretations of regional Italian dishes. <br><br> Bricco has garnished superlative reviews from food writers in Boston and around the country – Best Guaranteed Meal in the North End and Best Pasta in Boston just two of the most recent accolades. <br><br> The talented kitchen team creates “boutique” Italian food, so-called because it is unique, personal and created for a select and sophisticated diner. The food is complemented by an enoteca (wine bar) with an exceptional selection of all-Italian wines. <br><br> Bricco also offers a sophisticated late night scene. The chic and energetic bar serves up great one of a kind cocktails as well as brick oven pizza with gourmet toppings such as prosciutto and fresh mozzarella from Italy in addition with a full dinner menu. <br>Open 7 days a week 11:oopm – 2:00 a.m.

"So happy with all aspects of the meal including food, drinks, service and setting. The homemade pastas are delicious. Not a thing to complain about! I loved the ricotta pillows."

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. “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
