Dining experience - Nebo

Had a fantastic 3-course meal at Nebo Pizzeria, an Italian restaurant in Boston's North End.

And best of all - gluten free!

My hubby and I shared these dishes and our thoughts
sale e pepe • sea salt and white peppercorn marinated chicken wings
a hearty portion of crispy wings with a tangy dipping sauce

caprese • fresh mozzarella, vine ripened tomatoes, evoo, basil
a traditional dish with large slabs of mozzarella mingled between tomatoes and drizzled with olive oil and basil.  nothing dainty about this

carciofi • fresh ricotta, artichoke hearts, caramelized onions, mozzarella
i'm picky about my pizzas, but the crust was buttery with a crispy soft taste.  i wish the toppings had a little more flavor and did miss a tomato pizza sauce on there. 

We were surprised that for a Friday evening, the place was pretty quiet.  And the dessert menu was pretty disappointing - in fact, they didn't even have a gf specific menu.  The waiter was willing to point out what was and wasn't gluten free. 

Our meal plus two bottles of wine cost roughly $70 per couple

All in all, we would go back.
