Just got back from spending some time in Boston and don't understand why a couple of the restaurants we ate at get no love on the chowhound boards or actually even any mention. Giaccomo's and Anchovie's next door to each other are great, cheap and fun places to eat. Giacomo's could charge twice as much and probably stay as busy. Coming from the other bay area, San Francisco I found it a great unbelievably priced restaurant. Wondered on others' thoughts
Went to Toro's also and of course it was fantastic, but everyone writes about it. Wish i could get the eggplant, fried cod in black ink and braised beef on a weekly basis. It was great eating and we had no wait on a Monday night.
Interested to hear what locals think about the first two places and why there is no back bay love for these two.
