Mamma Luisa Cucina & Bar
Francesco Pellino was born in Naples. At 9 he moved to the United States, at 15 he became a dishwasher, and six months after that, he was the assistant to the night chef at the acclaimed Stella's of Boston. He paid for his college education by continuing his work in restaurants, and in 1992 he opened the doors to his very own restaurant Pellino's Ristorante, which has flourished ever since.
20 years later, Francesco was ready for a new challenge, so he opened a sister restaurant called Mamma Luisa Cucina & Bar. Rustically-minded and swathed in cozy shades of red and cream, Mamma Luisa focuses on Northern Italian fare with Provencal influences, and many dishes are inspired by Francesco's yearly trips to Italy. That includes pastas, such as gnocchi amatriciana or penne bolognese, which are made in-house every day, or traditional entrees like veal saltimbocca topped with fresh sage and prosciutto. The dining area can also be reserved for intimate gatherings of up to 50 people or 100, if they all bring their imaginary friends, making it a perfect choice for birthdays, work gatherings, or holiday parties.
