Dark horse Italian bistro
Somerville, MA 02145
NileGuide Expert tip:
Drive or get a cab - Brunello is far from mainstream public transit.
The location is surprising. Set next to a Walgreens on a sprawling stretch of Broadway in Somerville, Brunello Bistro looks deserted. Inside however, is a plethora of home made Italian pastas, a decadent list of wines and cocktails, and impeccable service.
Portions to please even the hungriest of patrons, Brunello Bistro also proves to be a satisfying value, and certainly worthy of leftovers. It received Diner's Choice for OpenTable.com in 2010, and we can see why.
