Linguine’s no frills, casual lunch counter service is refreshing for folks who just want to eat and aren’t concerned about atmosphere. The cooks serve up large helpings of fresh, comfort Italian cuisine to patrons eagerly watching them work in the exposed kitchen.
For those doubtful of the cuisine, the multiple autographs hanging on the walls from the stars of the hit TV series The Sopranos reassures that this Italian eatery isn’t messing around. From the popular meatball dishes to homemade ravioli, tortellini and gnocchi, many guests stall at the counter, overwhelmed by the menu.
Salads, pizza, calzones and sandwiches (both hot and cold) provide alternatives to the many pasta dishes. Add a twist to the pasta by ordering one of the seafood dishes, such as the seafood angel hair (clams, mussels and shrimp sautéed in garlic, white wine, virgin olive oil and chopped tomatoes over a bed of linguini).
When taking into account that each dish is large enough to span multiple meals, the menu prices are very reasonable. The eatery’s two rooms provide ample space for crowds and larger groups, and wine and beer are available to compliment the homemade Italian food.
Linguine’s serves both lunch and dinner. Guests who prefer a restaurant-style dining experience should arrive after 4 p.m., which is when wait service becomes available. But whether visiting the eatery for lunch or dinner, arrive with a hearty appetite and room in the fridge for the inevitable doggy bag.
Linguine’s Italian Eatery is located at 350 Boston Post Road West, Marlborough and the phone number is (508) 481-9747 for take out.
