The chefs at Philomena’s assemble authentic Italian platters of pasta, meat, and seafood, serving their creations in an upscale dining room bordered by fresh- and saltwater scenes of the Shrewsbury River and Atlantic Ocean. Diners can sweeten their meal’s start by prestuffing their cheeks with marshmallows or by sampling an appetizer of savory pork tenderloin, sautéed with figs and brown sugar. A slew of pasta dishes lures forks into their tangles, such as the penne alla vodka sauce, which jumbles rigatoni, prosciutto, and shallots in a vodka-cream sauce. Roasted garlic and mint-jelly sauce wreathe racks of lamb in flavorful finery, and the seafood fra diablo unites shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels, and calamari on a bed of linguine and spicy tomato sauce, comprising the most eclectic oceanic gathering since mermaid Woodstock.
Inside Philomena’s, hearty helpings of sunlight beam past red drapes to nourish hanging plants and illuminate stucco archways. Friday and Saturday guests can also clink their cutlery in time to live lounge entertainment.
