Chef Michael Schlow has been known to restaurant hop. That’s how it works in the biz. You gotta climb the ladder. Thankfully, for the last few years, he’s been at the helm of one of Boston’s most authentic Tuscan establishments, and it continues to amaze us all.
Specializing in Northern Italian cuisine, Via Matta responds to finicky foodies before they walk in the door. An exciting wine menu will please any aficionado, and while the mixed drinks are solid, we stick with wine, following a list unparalleled in this town. Pastas are fresh daily, some of the vegan variety to accommodate everyone. The staff keep the yummy bread baskets full and answer any question you might have without a fuss.
Go before the seasonal outdoor seating shuts down.
