Pastalina's in Medford - review

didgeridoo | Aug 20, 2006 03:49 PM

My fiancée and I went to Pastalina's (spelled Pastalenas in some web sources) on Salem Street in Medford for the first time last night and loved it! Pastalina's is a fantastic Italian restaurant with very affordable dishes (entrees $10-14, higher for the specials) and a very friendly staff.

We started with an antipasto of fresh cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce with prosciutto, mozzarella and olives then tried two of their specials: the lobster ravioli with pink sauce special and the veal cordon bleu in a mushroom white wine sauce (with pasta in red sauce on the side). A fresh cannoli on the house was delivered at the end of our meal. All was delicious and of very high quality.

They don't have a liquor license but you can bring your own wine (and have a liquor store across the street). Also, the dining room is a little run down but has that hidden gem feel at the same time. Highly recommended if you don't get hung up on the frills of more expensive restaurants.
