Joe Tecce's Ristorante & Caffe
61 N Washington St, Boston, MA 02114
I happened to be at Joe Tecce's the other night with a few friends and, 'now', my former girlfriend and had a fantastic meal. I had the Chicken Braciolettini which I like with the marinara sauce, unless of course my mother is making it and then I prefer the marsala. My friends had the Veal Rolletini, even though I pleaded with him not to, and Lobster Fra Diavolo. They really enjoy their meals. The bad part about the meal was my former girlfriend kept telling us how this is nothing like Italy, and how the food is nothing like it is in Itally and so on. She really was embarrassing. Even the waitress was rolling her eyes. I forget what she even ate as I really didn't care, but she started complaining as soon as the specials were read to us. And then she said the waitress didn't even tell them to us. What a strega; which ironically enough is another North End restaurant with good food and atmosphere, but I digress. We had the Calamari as an appetizer which is sauteed in a marinade of garlic and oil, vinegar, and spices. We had a few bottles of the Chianti Classico Riserva which we also enjoyed. The waitress was very understanding and instinctively knew we wanted to get out of there due to how my girlfriend was behaving. She purposely egged her on by standing over my shoulder reviewing the check. My friends and I thought that was very funny. Needless to say, my friends and I enjoyed the food, the service and atmosphere and it gave me an opportunity to see another side of my girlfriend who I convinced shortly there after that I was just not good enough for. I love Joe Tecce's!
