Cast in dim, incandescent light creeping out of the dining room’s decorative lanterns, Kasbah Restaurant's cushy seats surround tables filled with slow-simmered tagines, fluffy couscous, and tapas plates selected from a menu of Moroccan fare. The chicken tangiers’ apricot-kissed sherry sauce helps it maintain its status as the restaurant’s best seller, but the house specialty is the fried calamari, which arrives dotted with cherry peppers and doused in a secret sauce whose recipe is only known by the kitchen’s chef and the mayor of Casablanca. An expansive drink list showcases the eatery's carefully crafted martinis and homemade sangria, and weekly events invite belly dancers to shimmy to the sounds of a live Middle Eastern band.
Salvatore Gaglio—Salvo to his friends and family—grew up working in his uncle’s restaurant in Sicily, but he never imagined that he would make a career out of it. In fact, he wanted to pursue a very different calling: music.
As a young adult, Salvo enrolled and gradated from a music conservatory in Palermo, where he studied classical trumpet performance. He then spent the next several years performing with operas and symphonies around Italy. But eventually, Salvo realized that he had enough creativity to pour into another passion, and he returned once more to the kitchen. Today, the executive chef at Volare Revere channels this creativity into his rustic Sicilian and Mediterranean dishes crafted from farm-fresh meats and vegetables.
He adorns pizzas with figs and pancetta and makes his pastas in house before coating them in plum tomato sauces and topping them with creamy Vermont cheddar and lobster. He’s also been known to venture out into the dining room with his trumpet after dinner to play classical songs and “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.”

Ecco Restaurant and Martini Bar's staff matches wines and specialty martinis with culinary counterparts drawn from a menu of Italian-inspired steak, seafood, and pasta. Suggested wine pairings help servers increase flavor synergy, enhancing the lobster mac 'n' cheese’s fontina cheese and buttery crumbs with a sauvignon blanc hailing from New Zealand. They also embellish meals or stories about their last fishing expedition with the wildflower martini, a blend of Absolut wild tea vodka, St. Germain, ginger, and lemon juice.
Situated less than a five-minute drive from Logan Airport, Ecco Restaurant and Martini Bar houses a geometrically diverse dining room crowded with rectangular and circular leather booths. A signature wall scribbled with autographs reveals the John Hancocks of the restaurant’s myriad guests, and artistic clusters of light bulbs spread warmth across orange couches and exposed brick. The seasonal outdoor patio provides a nice spot to enjoy a leisurely weekend brunch or a romantic dinner under the stars.

Cole further helps resuscitate ear drums traumatized by the outside world's blaring car horns and shrill howler monkeys.
