When I visit friends in Mass. this is the restaurant I request.The place is usually crowded and we must wait to be seated. The menu changes so they don't always have what you want. I had a wonderful prime rib but the next time they did not have it on the menu. I had stuffed shrimp which was great. They start you off with large popovers and a wide selection of appetizers. The price is reasoneable.
Make sure you have an appetite b/c if you just go in for appetizers and don't meet the minimum food total, you will be charged. I think they think they are in Italy and you get charged for simply sitting down. Someone should alert them to the fact that they are in the United States. I would NEVER go back and was completely offended and disenchanted. With that practice I don't know that they will stay in business for another 53 years. Too many other restaurants out there that don't use that practice.
I held my wedding rehearsal dinner at the Continental Restaurant and had a wonderful time. The staff was very accommodating and extremely friendly, especially to my wife and I and the children who attended. I would reccommend the Continental to anyone for any event...or just dinner The food is great and the atmosphere is outstanding I give it a 10
Great Steak and desert. The Sirloin was cooked to perfection and the service was excellant, don't forget the cheesecake.
