Via Matta Restaurant Review

: Located across the street from the Boston Park Plaza Hotel at the Heritage on the Garden, Via Matta has quite a following thanks to chef/owner Michael Schlow. The restaurant's interior is simply decorated with hardwood floors, Italian glass and leather to create an authentic Tuscan ambience. The varied menu, however, is smartly restrained and intriguingly elegant. Classic starters like crunchy eggplant with tomatoes in a basil-infused marinade, and veal and pork meatballs spiced in a tomato basil sauce have become favorites. Schlow’s creativity shines in dishes such as the fettuccine with chicken liver ragù; consider as well the veal loin with crispy polenta, and the scallops with cipollini onion. Come summer, the patio makes the short list as a destination for nightcaps and a plate of Nutella tart, Mascaporeos or tiramisu.
