  • Carlo's Cucina Italiana is a great little Italian restaurant in the heart of Allston that tastes like it should be on Hanover Street in the North End.
  • You don't need to go to the North End for generous portions of well-prepared, gently priced Italian-American classics and originals. One of our critic's 10 under-the-radar gems:
  • While the Fusilli with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe was exquisite, the service is what really makes this place shine. If you get Guy, you're in luck; he's a friendly server who won't steer you wrong.
  • Best Italian in Boston!
  • Chicken Parm!
  • Great simple Italian food. The place is really small so call ahead if you're with a group.
  • Get the Melanzane Ripiene. Best appetizer! Great size portions of everything, so bring your appetite!
  • Amazing italian restaurant in Allston. Definitely the best in boston, no question. Worth going to again and again.
  • Amazing food and even better staff. These people make fantastic Italian grub and genuinely appreciate their customers. Try the gnocchi spezzatino. You won't be disappointed.
  • I come from Italy and I can safely say that this place is the best for Italian food!
  • Fusilli with asparagus
  • Always busy so never expect to get in and out in less than an hour. Be patient and be kind. The lobster ravioli was amazing.
  • If you want to get italian grammas homemade food, I strongly recommend here! Dont miss it!
  • best Italian in Brighton, decently priced with good portions.. the gnocchi is delicious.
  • I love to come here with a big group of friends for a "family dinner". Lobster ravioli was great and tiramisu was also good.
  • North End quality Italian food conveniently located in Allston. The veal parmigiana was exceptional.
  • The caprese salad was amazing plus Prosecco yummy
  • The Pollo Involtini is to die for. Port wine reduction over chicken breasts stuffed with spinach, fontina and prosciutto. The penne & sauce on the side is a bonus. Delicious.
