|The Bolognese at Sweet Basil in Needham|
The service is friendly and professional, and chef-owner, super-nice-guy-and-looker Dave Becker is either in his whites in the kitchen or on the floor greeting and serving. We love that.
But the food. Swoon over the classic Bolognese - a symphony of beef, sausage, mushrooms, celery, onion and sweet carrots - combined in a hearty red sauce finished with a splash of cream. Though it’s on the menu with fusilli at lunch and pappardelle for dinner, there are times the linguine, shown here, is a pinch-hitter. Any iteration you get - it's all good.
