When in Boston one Saturday night we decided on Italian so headed straight for the North End. Walking up Salem Street navigating the crowd's waiting to be seated along the myriad of great restaurants, we decided to take a shot at getting into Rabia's. We lucked out as my sister-in-law frequents the restaurant and got us a four-top in short order. Rabia's is known for their seafood selections although their traditions Italian fare is also outstanding. We started with a generous antipasto plate, a half dozen Wellfleet Oysters and sangria. It only got better from there. From the Bolognese to the pasta with calamari, shrimp, scallops and lobster and the egg fettuccini with veal, mushrooms and just a trace of white truffle, the meal was exceptional. The service is very good and while a little tight like most North End eateries, it was comfortable. A wonderful dinner out on a beautiful evening in Boston.
