An edible emporium of eatability, Nonni's Pizza serves a tongue-tantalizing menu of piping-hot pies smothered in vine-ripened tomato sauce and fresh Italian cheeses. Chomp into the BBQ bacon cheeseburger pie ($13.99/large), crowned with barbeque-sauce-marinated meatballs and crispy strips of bacon, or ward off clingy vampires with Nonni's Favorite ($13.99/large), which comes smothered in white sauce, breaded chicken, broccoli, garlic, and olive oil. End any eating expedition with the sweet delight of cinnamaple sticks ($3.99), breadsticks doused in cinnamon, sugar, and maple syrup. The technologically advanced pizzeria features online ordering courtesy of a pedal-operated computer powered by horses.
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.”
The up-close sounds of waves crashing onto Revere Beach permeate the soundscape at Antonia's at the Beach Restaurant, an eatery that embraces the dual cultures of Italy and the New England coast. The menu reflects this duality by placing Old World dishes, such as homemade ricotta gnocchi and veal parmigiana alongside maritime-influenced staples, including fried haddock and cedar-plank-smoked Atlantic salmon.
The decidedly rustic decor draws much more inspiration from the area's coastal influences, with nautical lanterns hanging from the exposed rafter beams and wooden ship's wheels fastened to the bar area's walls. Small aesthetic touches adorn the space and help capture the historically inspired ambience, including an antique sewing machine, a rotary telephone, and a dial-up modem.
“The Lamplighter has sampled lobster bisque and chowders from Rhode Island to Maine,” the Haverhill Gazette column The Lamp Post commented in 2012, “but has tasted none better than those at…the Pine River fish market.” Family owned and operated for more than 20 years, Pine River Fish Market earns such accolades by reliably supplying customers with fresh fish and shellfish, groceries, bisques and chowders, and live lobsters and crabs. In the store, maritime dwellers such as haddock, swordfish, conch, shrimp, steamers, and cherrystones—all of which are delivered daily—sit on ice, awaiting the day they’re thawed and can experience a strange new future world. The helpful staffers can also special order any in-season fish and have it ready for pickup the next day.
When lifelong Revere resident Josephine finally realized her dream of opening a restaurant in 2005, she named her Italian-American eatery after her grandson, Sebastian. Josephine honors her community by stuffing as many local ingredients as possible into her upscale menu of classic pastas, parmagianas, steaks, and of course seafood. Cabaret crooners fill the space with song every Thursday night as diners tuck into stuffed quahogs, crabs cakes, and lobster ravioli. In addition to a wine list that complements the menu’s many offerings, bartenders pour creative martinis, old-school cocktails, and kiddie cocktails that are shaken—not stirred—to the latest Wiggles hits.
