Price: Lunch: $ Dinner: $$$
Someone suggested Rabia's to me on my latest round of "I've got someone coming into town. Is there a North End place you'd strongly recommend?" so that's what my mother got. Lunch pastas are $11 instead of the $18 dinner price, so lunch it was.
|Fresh Pesto Gnocchi in a cream pesto sauce - $11|
I had heard I had to get the pesto gnocchi. I have no idea why I had to. It was tasty but nothing to have children about.
|Red Apple Ravioli with figs in a light gorgonzola sage cream sauce - $11|
I really enjoyed this one with its combination of sweet fruits and sweet pungent cheesey sauce. I also thought it was interesting to have apples so chopped or pureed or whatever it was they did to 'em that they could be a ravioli filling. My mother found it too sweet, but she's one of those people who's not into sweet. If you are or are with one of those people, be warned.
