TreMonte in Woburn

I was anxious to try a fairly new restaurant in Woburn Center on Main Street that I pass frequently. The restaurant is always busy and I heard good things about it, but it's always best to give it a try yourself. So, my husband and I visited on Saturday evening. The restaurant was once a store front or an office building; it has large windows on either side of the front door with small tables at the windows. There is a small bar available to your left as you enter which seats about 10 patrons. The restaurant was busy and we did call that evening to ask about a reservation. Because there were only two of us, we were told we would be seated at 7:30pm as requested. We were greeted by a very pleasant, accommodating man who was the owner's father; in speaking with him we learned most of the family was employed at the restaurant and he was duly proud of his son, the chef, and the other family members. We shared a stuffed, red roasted pepper as an appetizer. I truly enjoyed it. The stuffing consisted of fresh sauted spinach, cheese and chick peas -- my only comment was that it needed a little more seasoning. The bread was fresh Italian bread served with seasoned olive oil. My main dish was lobster ravioli which was prepared in a light cream sauce with shrimp and diced fresh tomatoes. The pasta was light and nicely prepared. My husband wanted more of a pasta "fix" which he got with the pasta bolognese. The pasta was light, fresh, al dente and topped with a wonderful, flavorful bolognese sauce. We skipped dessert so I can't comment, but I think this restaurant will be successful. The plates are large, the room was pleasant, the staff accommodating and all in all very enjoyable. I heard one couple comment on how they saved themselves a trip to the North End...I still won't pass up my frequent visits to the North End, but I enjoy knowing this neighborhood restaurant is available. I will return for a second try and try to save room for dessert.
