The Oregon Club

Reviewed By Coco T - Boston, Massachusetts

Cute patio and very nice surrounding. I've been there before and wanted to take my husband. The menu is great and can satisfy many tastes. Nice wine list. We have problem with couple of bottles (which waiter confirmed that they are corked) which they gladly changed it. Staff is just fantastic and helpful. Enjoyed very much our night out. But I think the chef is a bit heavy handed on salt. Everything was salty for average person. I like salty food but everything we ordered was border line salty. The quality and variety is great just a bit on salty side.

Tomasso Trattoria

Reviewed By WINEandTRAVEL - Boston, Massachusetts

Come here regularly... because it's so good, consistent. Menu accommodates whatever you are in the mood for... apps, salads, pizzas, pastas, entrees. Like the half orders of pasta so I can have another dish and not get completely stuffed. Meatballs and a pizza was perfect tonight. Red wine by glass, nice.

We offer four different styles of ribs and mop sauces from around the South including North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. In addition to bar-b-cue, you'll find many other Southern specialties on our menu including Cracklin' Bread, Fried Chicken, Red Beans 'n Rice, Sweet Potato Pecan Puddin' and more! We're also New England's largest BBQ Caterer catering parties for 20 to 20,000! Be sure to check out our Catering Menu if you're even thinkin' about having a party. Kick back, relax, and enjoy Firefly's award-winning bar-b-que and Southern fare at our restaurant, take a feast home, or let us cater your next big party or get together.

Fun place to go for great BBQ, friendly service, and even entertainment! Great selection of meats and sauces and sides; they serve everything from salads to pizza and everything in between! Southern offerings include po boys and fried pickles. Try one of the combo platters for a good sampling. Service is friendly and very good; server recommendations are always great.

Arturo's Ristorante

Specializing in Classic Italian with a modern influence, creative daily Chef specials, from pizzas to fresh pastas, Arturo's has something for everyone. From celebrations to business meetings, to corporate and private catering, we are your go to local dining destination. Private dining available.

Reviewed By Olaf W - Westborough, Massachusetts

We have been to Arturo's a few times over the last year and went back last week for a quick bite coming away with the same impression: solid traditional italian food in a pleasant environment. We shared a Caesar salad and a spicy sausage and peppers pizza with italian beer and red wine, and all were good. I have had better pizza doe with more flavor in the crust, but the toppings were tasty. The atmosphere in the large restaurant is pleasant, but with the tall ceilings and the bright ceiling lights it not a cozy atmosphere. Service was good, and the restaurant seems well managed. Easy parking. Altogether a very good value at less than $50 for our whole midweek dinner, considering how many restaurants out there think they can justify $30 main course prices. We did not try the pasta dishes, but will do so another time.

We love it here. We're regular visitors but seem to get the same thing every time... not very original. I don't like every flavor... not a fan of the skinny vanilla, but that's normally what my wife gets... go figure? Anyway, my recent vanilla with fresh strawberries was great. Instead of mashing in, just had them on top on this visit. Think I'll keep doing this as it doesn't soften/melt the ice cream. Delish!

Mauro's

Reviewed By Hick_from_CT - Haddam, Connecticut

We are visiting in a new-to-us town. Yesterday we drove up and down Rt 9 looking for a decent breakfast place - finally gave up and just got some oatmeal at McDonald's. Today we consulted Trip Advisor - should have thought of that yesterday! - and saw the recommendations for Mauro's. Two thumbs up! It has about 15 tables (as well as a counter with stools) in a room comfortably paneled with knotty pine. The food was tasty, and the portions were huge - we brought half of it away with us. The waitress was friendly and thorough. One of the cooks saw my husband's Red Sox cap and, during a lull, came over to talk baseball. We enjoyed our meal and would definitely come here again if we're in the area again.
