Bob's, Lacasia's, Bova, Dino's, Tutto Italiano are all very good, but Monica's Mercato on Salem Street in the north end blows them all away. Head and shoulders better than any Italian I've ever had anywhere. Period.

Used to love the Italiano at DePasquale. There's a great "just like Italy" version at Salumeria Italiano in the NE.
