Fanny and Leo Mencoboni opened a Framingham MA neighborhood grocery store in 1946. Each night, Fanny would prepare dinner for her family in the back room. The fabulous aromas made shoppers ask “what’s for dinner?” and many tried to buy whatever she was cooking. They insisted she sell them her salad dressing and sauce. Within two years the store became an italian restaurant and the rest is history. Make sure to try our delicious Fannys Dressing and Homemade sauce which you can order online from our website. You can come in and join us or call for take out. If you are hosting a function let us cater it for you!

The food was really nasty. I ordered spinach lasagna. It came fast because it's frozen Crap that is nuked. Sausage was nasty. Meatball, salad and iced tea was good. The place is dark. I don't recommend this to no one!!!

The pizza, chicken parm and the onion rings are fantastic. Is it gourmet italian food, no, but for a nice meal out it is okay. I guess you could biotch about the price but anywhere you go these days is expensive.

The Good and the Bad. La Cantina was one of our regular spots many years ago until the restaurant was sold. Well we got curious with all the work being done and the ad for the Thursday Lobster Fest. We loved the nice clean and newly remodeled dining and waiting area. Very impressive wood work. Our waitress was absolutely great. I had the Shore Dinner with the optional salad and my wife had Chicken Marsala. The salads were very nicely prepared and an adequate size for the price. The house dressing was superb. All the food was brought in a timely manner. The Marsala was a good sized portion and tasted good except for a few stringy parts on the chicken. My meal included steamers, lobster, corn on the cob and a baked potato. The steamers were very clean and tasted very good. The corn was over done and could have been fresher, the baked potato was very good. The lobster tail was cut down the middle and 'pre-cracked' which I do not prefer as bits of shell always gets into the meat and the green stuff gets smeared on the tail meat. Some eat the green, I do not. The worst part is the lobster was very overcooked - yuck. Besides the lobster issue it was a good value for the amount of food you get from this meal. We seriously doubt we will try it again.

Just picked up a Veal Parmigiana Dinner Take-Out, that order was placed over the phone around 5:00pm, website and menu states Early Bird Specials between 3:30pm-5:30pm, posted price: $9.99, when proceeding to Take-out door, picked up my VP dinner and was surprised that it was $18 with Tax?????...Very pleasant young lady at check stated early bird specials are not included for take out?...No where on website or menu is that mentioned! Plus the 1 1/2 cup of salad(lettuce) was pretty lame considering the 2 TBS of Fanny's Dressing that they spared, small piece of bread......NO UTENSILS, GRATED CHEESE or NAPKINS. I've frequented this establishment for 30+ years.....I do have to mention the Veal was excellent, I would not complain about price if I was seated in the restaurant and had a salad refill, bread and service! Just find it deceiving not clearing posting $$$$ for Early Bird Specials.....
