Re: “Pulcinella's

Last week we enjoyed a great evening at Pulcinella's. We started with a truly incredible Frito Misto that featured perfectly fried Whole Belly Clams, Shrimp, Scallops, Asparagus, and Zucchini served with both marinara and a garlic aioli. The portion was HUGE and would have made for quite a meal by itself. Undaunted, we selected three pasta entrees, all of which were excellent and more than ample in portion size. Service was friendly, efficient, and professional as always making for a Five Star evening!

Re: “The Belted Cow Bistro

Simply Excellent
In a local dining scene that has often morphed into some nonsensical, self- serving, "we are doing you a favor for serving you", the Belted Cow serves up great food without attitude. No need to rename the menu items after some B Movie character, the focus is on proper execution and plating of delicious foods. Decide for yourself, in my opinion the Belted Cow is The Real Deal!

Re: “Pulcinella's

A perfect place for lunch or dinner
Stopped by and had lunch at Pulcinella's today and I am glad I did! The New England Clam Chowder was as good as any in Boston or elsewhere. Then came three meatball sliders on deliciously moist potato rolls served with a nicely dressed green salad. The service was great and it is obvious by the personal greeting that all guests receive that Pulcinella's thrives on regular repeat guests. One of the few places on this level that is open for lunch and well worth a visit, day or night. Food: 5 Ambiance: 5 Service: 5

Re: “Martone's Market & Café

Perfection on a Roll
Martone's continues to get it right. Their sandwiches are huge but that would not matter if they weren't delicious. Fresh vegetables, quality meats and cheeses, tasty condiments, and super bread and roll options result in the best sandwich around ! Congrats on 20 years of success !! Food: 5 Ambiance: 5 Service: 5

Re: “Oriental Wok

Best Deal Anywhere
The Hot and Sour Soup at Oriental Wok is the perfect balance of spiciness and pungent acidity accented with fresh vegetables, foie gras like tofu, and a silky broth. Topped with the crispy fried wontons, it is perfect. But wait, the price is........$2.25 ! Are you kidding me ? Add a great egg roll (ask for the house made mustard and a squeeze bottle of duck sauce) and your bill will be a 1970ish $4.36 with tax. There simply is not a better deal around!

Re: “The Belted Cow Bistro

Johnny D does BBQ right !
If you have ever heard someone say "you can't get "real BBQ" in Vermont" it was probably uttered from the mouth of someone that has not been to The Belted Cow Bistro on a Tuesday night ! Make it a point to find out for yourself how great BBQ Ribs can be with a trip to The Cow. Be sure to call first as the cue has been known to sell out. Food: 5 Ambiance: 5 Service: 5

Re: “The Belted Cow Bistro

Holy Cow !
My wife and I attended the recent 7 Hills Wine dinner at The Belted Cow and were more than impressed. The food and wine pairings were excellent starting with passed appetizers featuring two specialties (the fig & duck flatbread and the incredible ribs) as well as a delicious spicy rock shrimp all complimented by a 7 Hills Pinot Gris. From there it was food and wine not for the faint of heart !! Black Bass, Veal Meatballs, Duck Breast and Leg, and Rack of Lamb all served with great sides and sauces and fantastic wines. This was nothing short of a feast ! A great night for all in attendance and advanced notice to all to not miss the next one !!! Food: 5 Ambiance: 5 Service: 5
