Don't be fooled by the industrial/residential location on a side street overlooking the Target warehouse. And the front of the place is nothing to look at ... However, the best veal saltimbocca I ever had!! All home made pasta, breads and your served by the...More

Small, crowded, about 10-12 tables. The appetizer we wanted figs stiffed with blue cheese was gone. We were given small loaf of piping hot bread sitting in olive oil and peppered with garlic slices. It was fantastic. We chose the pear salad. Excellent with the...More

Dined at Grappa a few nights ago and had a very nice experience. Yes it is a small place that is tucked away on a little street behind Target, but it is worth finding! And much easier parking compared to the North End :) Glad...More

Across from Target, beside auto body shops, chipping paint--the exterior might scare you off. But be brave and step inside. You'll feel far from Target and Watertown in general. You will need a reservation--place is packed, even on week nights. Second visit--both times we've had...More

This is my new favorite in Watertown. Ordered fra diavlo and loved it. Good wine, very friendly waitress, nicely decorated room. A gem and a secret in the neighborhood. Competes with Strip T and Porcinis and does well at it.

Located across from the Watertown Mall, down the Street from the Saab Dealership is a 12 to 15 table Italian Restaurant. Nice atmosphere, friendly service. Had the Fettucine Bolgnese last night. Altho I thought the fettucine was really pappardelle, it was very good. A reliable...More
