Neapolitan trattoria on Beacon Hill delivers quality and care at bargain prices..
Every neighborhood should have a cozy red-sauce Italian restaurant where the wine list is sensibly priced and you don't need a culinary degree to read the menu. Il Bocconcino is Beacon Hill's. Folks come from North Slope and affluent neighborhoods beyond to banter with the waiters before capellini and chianti. Proximity to Mass General also attracts patients and their families craving a tasty respite from hospital food.
The menu is standard southern Italian, but the execution is several cuts above conventional. Ask for olive oil instead of butter pats with the excellent rustic bread. Crispy, greaseless calamari makes a perfect starter. Rack of baby lamb, a frequent special, is succulent and enlivened by a balsamic demi-glace. Lively fresh red sauce brightens pasta dishes. Conclude with the fluffy sponge cake and luscious custard of the homemade tiramisu.
