Boston's North End Italian Food
In the North End, we went to an Italian restaurant called La Famiglia Giorgio. As we perused the menu, we saw that the dishes were coming out with huge portions and were really excited. I regrettably did not take a picture of the menu that we ordered from because it was from a "specials menu", so I cannot give an exact description.
I remember my dish being a unique type of ground meat. Maybe it was pork? Or veal? I really can't remember. My pasta was a whole wheat fusilli, all mixed together in a tomato sauce. The dish was too salty, but despite it being enormous, I managed to finish it all. (I tried a bit and thought it was quite good. It was definitely unique)
Mike decided to try new things and had a grilled tilapia served with fresh vegetables. The fish was a little dry and overcooked.
Nelson had the porterhouse, a 20 ounce steak with upgraded pasta. The steak was a large portion, but not well marbled and tasted similar to what I can make at home, but I still enjoyed it. Even though it cost more, I decided to get the special pasta because it was fresh homemade pasta. I got the cheese ravioli, and it wasn't mind blowing, so I probably should have stuck with the fries. I was a little disappointed that there was no vegetables whatsoever.
Kitty had the stuffed eggplant dinner stuffed with mozzarella, ricotta and roman cheese, topped with marinara sauce. The eggplant was so thin I couldn't even tell it was there. There was a lot of cheese though, so that was good, but we were both disapointed that there was so little eggplant. This portion was huge!
Overall, it was a nice home style Italian restaurant with gigantic portions. We had a nice breakfast of pasta the next morning.
