Foursquare Tips

  • It isnt for everyone. You sit next to strangers, it's bright and noisy, but those are the reasons we luuuuurrve Sportello. Its quirky.
  • order a pasta dish.
  • At chef Barbara Lynch's casual counter spot in the Fort Point neighborhood, the strozzapreti with braised rabbit, picholine olives, and rosemary is transcendent.
  • As you would expect in a Lynch restaurant, pastas are expertly prepared. Wheaty, briny, slightly pungent, and rich, the bigoli with clams, sea urchin, and bottarga is the most complex of the bunch.
  • It's not publicized on the menu, but you can request a half-portion of any pasta entree for half the price. A life-saving, life-changing revelation.
  • Just figured out that Sportello has coffee/espresso/baked goods too. Good coffee. New stop for my am cup of Joe.
  • If they have the corn soup... Get it.
  • The goat cheese and tomato sandwich is a must. Their lunchbox includes a sandwich, drink, homemade chips, and a yummy cookie - $10.60, not bad!
  • Sportello is always on my list of places to go in the city. The staff are amazing, the chefs talented and the setting relaxed. The food never dissapoints.
  • Best pasta in boston agnolotti with lobster and polenta with lamb Ragu are good choices- polenta was so creamy it tasted like creamed corn
  • Small but cozy restaurant with a tasteful selections of rare beers. The burrata is a good starter for the mushroom gnocchis
  • Ordering experience for "box" lunch was awesome and efficient. Great chicken salad (with Greek yogurt instead of mayo).
  • You are somebody if you score a corner!
  • Kubrick-inspired interior. Amazing Italian - Gnocci rules. Go to Drink after.
  • Amazing spicy tomato soup
  • Try the Strozzapreti With Braised Rabbit And Picholine Olives - Strozzapreti is perfectly chewy ...yummm
  • The rabbit is so good that the waiter offered to buy it back if I don't like it. That's an endorsement!
  • Can't go wrong with a pasta dish.
  • BEST lunchbox special! LOVE it.
  • Heirloom Tomato and Watermelon Salad a MUST TRY!
