Best of Boston
2017 Best Neighborhood Restaurant, Coolidge Corner
This cozy deli’s been slinging authentic Florentine cuisine for more than two decades, long before the fast-casual trend. Made-to-order pastas cooked with fresh ingredients (try the linguine amatriciana) make it the best lunch spot on the C Line.
