Fodor's Expert Review Sportello

$$ Downtown Boston Italian Fodor's Choice

One of the city's most widely awarded chefs, Barbara Lynch had the foresight to create a culinary statement in the Seaport, long before it was cool to do so. Her Italian trattoria, Sportello, serves rustic, market-fresh fare in a chic, white, upscale "diner"-like setting, where diners can order à la carte, try a two- or three-course prix-fixe (at lunch), or have the kitchen cook up a three-course family style meal of their choosing for the table. To go along with the food, Sportello offers a tantalizing selection of artisanal wines.
