Osteria Nino: A Taste of Rome in Burlington, MA

I don't know much about the restaurants in Burlington (although I know you should definitely go to Sichuan Garden / Baldwin Bar in nearby Woburn) but now I can recommend at least one place to eat. Osteria Nino near the Wegman's in Burlington is a solid osteria serving popular items from Rome and beyond.

The breading on the fried calamari is nice and light, they're served with a tangy fra diavolo sauce.
Since it's a Roman osteria, the signature dish is the cacio e pepe - a simple and traditional dish of spaghetti, cracked black pepper, and pecorino romano.

Another chef's signature dish is the frutti di mare. The linguine in fra diavolo sauce is generously topped with clams, mussels, and shrimp. They also offer gluten-free versions of all the pasta dishes.

For dessert, I of course have to order tiramisu, one of my favorite desserts!

While the dishes you'll find here are typical dishes you'll find at many Italian restaurants, they're done well at Osteria Nino, making it a good option if you're looking to eat in the area. It's also one of the few places I've found that serve lambrusco by the glass!
