Julie, try open at 10:45 and close by 1:30 most days!
Open until 3:00 is a slow day by their standards!
This food is great. The menu has only about a half dozen items, but even the recent price increases only put the food on par with mid-1990's prices. It's one of the only places in the city to get real pizza, nevermind three slices for $5!
Oh, and wine in Dixie cups? Classy. This place is legit. Mind the long line though!
Tons of parking, and right off both 93 and 95. This place is great. The Polcari family brought us Pizzeria Regina, which is probably one of the quintessential Boston pies. The pizza is always fresh at Polcari's, but so is the traditional Italian fare. The Italian wedding soup is particularly good. Also, the oil served with bread is quite spicy, but packs a great flavor.
First off, it's pricey. But totally worth the money. You do get what you pay for.
This place has an amazing ambiance. I have yet to find a place (excluding mainland Japan) that compares in terms of such a broad menu and hospitable atmosphere.
In full disclosure, I have not yet been to O Ya, which is rumored to top even this spot.
The servers are very knowledgeable and the cooks are fantastic and precise artists.
Go for Otoro (the highest grade fatty tuna) and Kobe beef sashimi. Delicious. Hamachi (yellowtail) is also very good.
The one quasi-negative experience was that I saw my food go to an adjacent table once, and it was promptly taken back and then served to me. I'm quite sure it was the same plate but am not sure. And to be truthful, I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt, especially with such vulnerable food items. For this reason I knocked the five stars to four.
But I will return, and repeatedly.
P.S. Best Kobe beef I've had in all of North America...
Great little place. Clean restaurant, moderate menu options but great quality food. Family-owned and courteous staff.
Place gets busy for weekend brunches, and fills up quickly because it's a small dining room.
We try and visit monthly. As mentioned by the others, the salsa is good. Slightly spicy but not too herby.
The drinks are great. The food is very good, including the more traditional dinner plates. The fajitas are fantastic, that's a safe bet anytime.
One significant note is that La Paloma strives to be a little more traditional Mexican fare. They don't veer too much into Tex-Mex, fusion, Mexican gourmet, or Spanish cuisine... they strictly shoot for high quality traditional Mexican meals at reasonable prices.
It's worth a short drive. Always good for a nice and fun night out.
Their shop across the street sells great Italian goods...
...so why is the food here always terrible?
It's not even worth taking a chance on. I promise. It's one of a small handful of restaurants I won't go back to.
Been three times... never good.
Nice little breakfast joint!
This place is pretty tiny inside. It's got a few tables and a bar. The low prices and old-school feel mean either it's a hidden gem or a dive, and alas, it's a gem.
The food is among the best breakfast food I've had in Quincy and the surrounding areas.
Highly recommend the breakfast sandwiches. Omelettes are also delicious.
Plus you can order everything you're interested in and still not spend more than ten bucks. Can't beat that! Just realize that the place gets busy and there's limited seating...
This place is great. It's not my favorite Italian food at all, but it's very good and there is a wide selection of desserts as well.
What is most significant about Gennaro's is the portion size. It's quite large for the money. True value!
Great pizza, great pasta, good sauce, and veggies were well-cooked.
Worth a go if you're in the Quincy area, but you can do better closer to the city or in select suburban eateries.
I have never been to other locations except for Everett, MA.
However I think the quality of the food is much higher than you'd expect at a chain restaurant.
Ordering steaks that aren't on the menu is also a step up from the normal chain steakhouse experience. I once got a 14oz. filet mignon there. It was luxurious.
Mmm. Try the fried onion, the house salad with no egg, chicken strips, filet medallions, loaded sweet potato, and french fries with their house barbeque sauce!
Oh, but the mac n' cheese is just Kraft. I like it but most people are disappointed.
As a non-New Yorker that visits frequently, I wanted to try this place. And I did it the way real pizza eaters do. I tried the traditional cheese, and then one with a topping.
I like garlic knots and some fancy pies, but that really can't be how you judge a pizza place. You wouldn't judge a florist by the vase selection or one parade float...
Anyway, this is one of the older pizza joins in Manhattan, in the last bastion of what was a bustling Little Italy.
The pie is great. It's not the best pizza I've ever had, but it is precisely what you expect when you look for New York pizza, right down to the small dining area, colorful commentary by staff, and crumb-covered tables and seats.
The pizza was bomb though. Really, really good. I don't necessarily recommend running across the city for it, but it's worth a dip over if you're local. We walked over from Mercer Street.
