We have lived in the Boston area for many years and Mistral is among our favorite restaurants. We have consistently had outstanding meals here, generally for special occasions. There is a wide selection of delicious appetizer, entrée, and dessert items. The service is excellent and friendly. For our anniversary dinner last evening, I had the grilled portobello mushroom carpaccio, the tuna tartare, and the white asparagus salad -- all of which were perfectly prepared and delicious. My husband enjoyed the lobster gnocchi appetizer and the grilled king salmon. And we both enjoyed the "dolce vita" dark chocolate thin-crust pizza with ricotta and mascarpone.
