Spiga Charms; Teranga Terrific

• Despite some misses, Devra First is thoroughly charmed by Needham’s Spiga and gives it two stars: “When I first moved to Boston, an impoverished youth, my mother came to visit and took me to Iocco’s Galleria Italiana as a treat; it was one of the earliest wonderful meals the city offered me. I want Spiga to be just as good.” [Globe]

• Mat Schaffer gives South End Sengalese spot Teranga a B, promising readers “You will love [it].” [Herald]

• Robert Nadeau thinks Stork Club is “generally fine” and gives it two stars. [Phoenix]

• Cheap Eats just doesn’t love New China Pearl as much as they wanted to. [Globe]

• MC Slim JB rather likes the giant portions of traditional Italian fare at Rino’s. [Phoenix]
