We were in the North End the other day and tried Pagliuco's. Not bad, but seemed overpriced and not entirely consistent. I chose it because we forgot to look up any recs online and there were a lot of elderly Italian-Americans eating there. Granted Pagliuco's leans pretty Italian-American, and I can appreciate that too. But which is your favorite Southern-style Italian restaurant in Boston? I am most interested in dishes along the likes of rigatoni with eggplant and ricotta salata, and definitely will not be ordering chicken "parmigiano" or whatever. Sicilian or Barese influence would be asking too much I think, but anywhere "Southern" would be great, thanks!
