It's my boyfriend's bday this Saturday, and he wants to have Italian for dinner... My first choice was Prezza, but sadly, their earliest available time is 9:30, which is a bit too late for us. So I made reservations at Trattoria a Scalinatella and Via Matta, but I've read some mixed reviews on both places. Can any hounds give me other suggestions for a great Italian place? It doesn't need to be in the N. End, though we'd prefer it to be in Boston or Cambridge, since we don't have a car.
Thanks in advance for all your help!
