best of 3 italian restaurants

Please help. I've narrowed my choices to Giacomo's, La Summa and Loconte's. We will be dining Thursday night, June 7 (my birthday).

When is the best time to go without having to wait in long lines or is that unpredictable for a Thursday night? Do you wait hours?

Which ones take cash only?

Which ones take reservations?

Which one would you suggest?

Dessert at Mike's or Paradiso?

Thank you.

maurizios on hanover street is cute too.


cannolis...modern pastry by a country mile. staff are fast and friendly also. not bad to sit down for coffee

paradiso...good coffee. more of a coffee bar than pastry shop. lovely vibe there. very chlled out.

can also pick up some nice pastries at monica's on salem street and not deal with the lines.

mikes pasty is okay. a bit mad there though.
