Federal Hill Dilemma

Kat | Jan 9, 2009 09:05 AM

OK, I posted a couple days ago and received some good responses about pastry shops in the area. Now, we are having some disagreement about mom's birthday lunch. Mom, who is ITAM, just wants to go for old school Italian somewhere on Federal Hill as she has never been there. Someone mentioned Andino's and Cassarino's to me, but the reviews here and elsewhere online seem mixed. Someone else mentioned the Old Canteen as being very old school and better than the other two options. Mom loved Monty's (RIP) and Il Camino in Leominster, a very casual ITAM place with escarole soup, gnocchi and homemade pasta. Can someone recommend anywhere similar? It should be family friendly as we'll have our six year old with us, but still a little special because it is her b'day. Thanks!
