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 dough wizards at Papa John's hand toss circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.
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.
Spherical paper lamps bathe Ristorante Ravesi's interior in an amber glow, emitting cozy light while suspended from the ceiling. White tablecloths serve as an appropriately formal backdrop for the char-grilled steaks, lobster ravioli, and sautéed veal medallions that dance upon the Italian menu. The restaurant's namesake pizza layers arugula with goat cheese, prosciutto, and balsamic fig glaze, and its housemade gnocchi features Executive Chef Giuseppe Ravesi's vodka sauce.

The slow-roasted, fried, and stewed preparations granted to many of Nazca Cafe's tender meats take on piquancy and freshness via ultra-vivid presentations. Red and green onions, bright orange peppers, and golden plantains enliven heaping platters of pork, beef, and chicken marinated in savory sauces. Seafood dishes take on similarly lavish accoutrements, such as the menu's two cebiche dishes featuring fresh fluke or seabass. Glazed sweet potato and Peruvian corn decorate citrusy cebiche, and other dinners can dip a ladle into the cebiche's marinade and serve it on the side as "leche de tigre," or "tiger's milk," named for the enormous felines who stow away on Peruvian fishing boats.
