Puerto La Boca Restaurant Review

: The authentic Argentinean cooking at this Little Italy eatery focuses on grilled meats. Start with the empanadas, morcilla (black sausage), black mussels and calamari with shrimp and garlic, or the Buenos Aires salad with watercress, bacon and beets. Pasta fans will enjoy the canelones --- cannelloni filled with spinach, mozzarella and ricotta in a béchamel cream sauce, topped with tomato sauce. Entrées include a 12-ounce filet mignon in a Malbec reduction, asado de tira (Argentinean short rib) and sea bass with mango sauce. Note: The dinner menu only is offered all day starting at 1 p.m. on Sundays.
