I think you are talking about Villa Rosa....I like it there but not all do.

Hancock's has an all you eat prime rib every Friday and Saturday.

Hancock Street itself has a few decent places.....Alba's is one....

Marina Bay is part of Quincy with a view of Boston.

Siro's is Italian and very good.

Captain Fisbones..seafood...not great but ok

Skline is not bad with a decent brunch.

The Venetzia is in the port section of Dot and close enough to Quincy with a nice view of Boston and on the water.

Eileen's right on with her recommendations. I even tried them, they're really good. My favorite place she mentioned is the Venezia in Dorchester. It's close to Quincy off the south east expressway. In fact, it's tricky to get to. Here's their site, GO here if you get the chance, it's extremely good and the views from here during the day for lunch are beautiful, it's a hidden gem actually:

I know you said you'd travel as far as Norwell, this one I'm going to recommend is in Abington, next to Weymouth and it's another hidden gem in my book! It's called Vin & Eddie's located at 1400 Bedford Street on Rte 18 in Abington:

I loved Christo's at one time located at 782 Crescent Street in Brockton along Rte 27, for their salads and pizza and from what I'm reading and hearing about it these days, they're still good for those two items.

Marina Bay has Siro's as was mentioned. GO there, it's really pretty good you can walk it off along the boardwalk afterwards. Read about it here and check out their menu to see what you're going to get!

Good luck! You know I didn't see one place in Quincy Square or thru the other parts of Quincy that jumped out at me. I'm sure you'll get various suggestions though, so just keep checking back here for them to see if there's any other good spots to go!

Enjoy your time visiting here!

Hi,

Just saw your post, I hope you are still following it.

There's loads of good food in Quincy, certainly better than Villa Rosa for sure.

The Fat Cat in Quincy Center is excellent. Good upscale pub food and delicious concoctions like lobster mac and cheese, and an awesome house-made (not frozen patty) hamburger.

For a more neighborhood pub, unpretentious but with very tasty food, the Fowler House Pub on Hancock St. is quite nice. It's typical American fare, but the quality and portions are excellent. It's at 1049 Hancock St. in Quincy Center.

Are they big meat eaters? There's an excellent little Brazilian Churrascaria in Quincy Center called Terra Brasilis. You get the wonderful marinated and spit-roasted meat, all you can eat, brought to your table and sliced off the spit. They also have live band which is fun. They are at 1506 Hancock St.

If you want good Italian, with a wide range of dishes, not just the red sauce, Gennaros in Quincy is excellent. It's a tiny place, and the owner does most of the cooking. He knows his way around a piece of garlic, for sure. It's delicious and the portions are enormous. His pizzas and calzones are also outstanding.

Another very good Italian place is the Venetian in Weymouth. While the other dishes look good when they go by, I've never been able to order anything other than the pork chops with vinegar peppers, which is SO good.

Of course, if you like Chinese food, Quincy has a huge Chinese population and loads of excellent restaurants. My favorites are Hong Kong Eatery on Hancock St., China Pearl, on Quincy Ave. in the Kam Man marketplace mall, Grand Chinatown and Quincy Dynasty, both on Billings Rd. in North Quincy.

There are plenty of good places to eat, so don't worry.

Hi,

My favorite breakfast places in Quincy are (in no particular order):

The Wheelhouse Diner

McKay's Cafe

The Early American Cafe

The Egg and I (although someone told me recently that they thought it has closed. I haven't been there in a while, myself.)

Of course, you might not consider this to be breakfast, but I also love the Dim Sum at China Pearl. They serve it on weekends, beginning at 10am, I think.
