When someone takes over a business, they usually use it as an opportunity to put their own spin on things. When Don Folckemer and Vickie Farley took over Ronaldo's, they didn't even touch the menu. That's because the restaurant's blend of traditional and contemporary Italian recipes has been a hit with locals for more than 20 years, particularly the seafood fettuccine with fresh lobster, large shrimp, and scallops. Other specialties include the "trilogy" of parmigiana––a combo platter with eggplant, chicken, and veal served over penne with meat sauce. Don and Vickie did update the decor, however, giving the chefs an exhibition kitchen in which to show off their skills. Guests more interested in spirits than sustenance can grab a stool at the bar, where mixologists blend several different kinds of martinis as the TVs broadcast Patriots and Sox games, and probably the occasional commercial.
