Giulia. Of course. It’s a small place, on Mass. Ave., just outside of Harvard Square, with an extremely well-defined menu. About a half dozen little plates, like cicchetti, about a half dozen fatto in casa pasta, and about a half dozen main plates.
A little plate of a hamachi collar. Pesto of ramps on a flat bread. Grilled sardines. Bignoli with pancetta. Halibut. And what can you say about a restaurant that offers a $4 dessert of a stack of biscotti?
Littles plates: $5 each. Pastas: Between $17-19. Main plates: Twenties.
The music is all jazz and blues. The wait staff is focused, thoughtful, and pleasant. The room is perfectly lit.
