Il Casale takes the prize

9 Jul

Many congrats to Dante de Magistris for Il Casale’s well-deserved 3 1/2-star review in the Globe today! Restaurant critic Devra First writes:

“Il Casale’s food is wonderful, but the appeal goes deeper than that. With its menu of passed-down recipes, its crowds of locals, and its group tasting menus, the restaurant emphasizes family and community.”

I agree. Dante and his family worked on this restaurant for years, taking over the old firehouse in their hometown. It was a labor of love, and that spirit animates the kitchen and the dining room. Plus, they have the best meatballs in the city, okay, metro area.
