limoncello in the north end

After a couple of hours at the Ringling Bros. circus with Tony’s niece and nephew, we met up with their parents, Joe and Marina, and walked over to the North End for lunch. Of course, all of the restaurants up and down Hanover Street were packed, so we looked for something on one of the side streets. We came across Limoncello and decided to give it a try.

Tony had the basic Spaghetti al Pomodoro Fresco, and I had the Linguine Alle Vongole (linguine with clams) with a white sauce.

The food was okay overall, nothing great. The pasta was overcooked which kind of sucked, and I thought my dish was a tad salty. At first I thought it was because I probably put too much parmesan cheese on top, but Tony thought his dish was salty too. The great thing was that they were very accomodating to the kids and put together a simple bowl of pasta with butter and cheese for them (totally not on the menu) and brought it out before our dishes so that they could stay occupied. It wasn’t too pricy for the food so it wasn’t a terrible experience, but we probably will opt for a different place in the North End next time.
