Checking Out This Casual Culinary Gem on Victoria Street

Where: 30 E. Victoria St., 962-5014.

What: A casual trattoria on Victoria Street with a full bar energized by live music.

How Much: Appetizers $9-$16, pasta dishes $9-$19.

The Dish: Just around the corner from the Arlington Theatre lies a fine selection of culinary gems on Victoria Street. Formerly known as Pascual’s Restaurant, the same husband and wife owners remain under the new name. Unassuming, unpretentious, and lively, the casual atmosphere feels homey and warm. Weekend nights can get loud with the crowd, but this type of bustling noise adds to the unmistakable allure of the family-run Italian trattoria. Antipasti and insalatas open the door for both traditional and homemade pasta dishes as well as Mediterranean specialties from the land and sea. A light, richly textured Insalata Riccia is made from frisee lettuce with artichoke hearts and grilled shrimp. Traditional meat lasagna and thin ribbon pasta with mixed wild mushrooms are house favorites, as well as the impressively plated whole grilled Mediterranean sea bass (branzino, $26). Engaging owner Giovanni Comini sits down to the restaurant’s grand piano on most evenings to provide live music for dinner guests.
