Great date spot, but don't forget the bar menu!
One of the three best restaurants on Hanover Street!
Most restaurants on Hanover Street either offer you heaping helpings of mediocre red sauce or overpriced and over thought ""modernized"" Italian. Tresca manages to give you a delicious, modern Italian meal that would satisfy the most die-hard of foodies, but would not upset your nonni either.
The pork chop is one of the best items on the menu, hands down. Its size would make it feel at home in any downtown steakhouse and its cooked to perfection and covered in pan sauteed pancetta cubes. And the sweet and sour peppers...minkya!
On the more traditional end, the bolognese knocks it out of the park with its rich and meaty sauce (veal, pork and pancetta). The Veal Osso Bucco is another traditional favorite of mine. Its even better than my moms (she doesnt know how to use a computer, I can say that).
What I found on my most recent trip was the Bar Menu is every bit as good as the dinner menu. Smaller plates lets you try a variety of items. I'd recommend the scallops and the steak, both outrageously good!
If you want to graduate from the chicken parm factories of Hanover Street and try some cuisine that would be served in one of the better restaurants of Italy, then take a chance on Tresca.
