LaGroceria is one of the first and many independently owned and authentic
ethnic restaurants that make Central Square a vibrant and unique community
and a destination for diners seeking exceptional food and family

A favorite with Boston diners, LaGroceria was originally a small breakfast
and sandwich shop opened in 1971 by Franco Mastromauro and his two sons,
Frank and Charles. Over the years, LaGroceria has evolved into a fine
dining establishment serving Mediterranean cuisine, fresh seafood and steak
dinners and freshly baked focaccia sandwiches and fresh salads at lunch.
LaGroceria has made its mark, and one worthy of "Best Restaurant" accolades
from Gourmet Magazine, Zagat and Fodors.

Renowned for their excellent and innovative cuisine, LaGroceria offers an
extensive selection of new recipes that are certain to please every palate.
From "Live'N Kickin Lobsters" to "Sogliola Margherita" (pan fried fresh
filet of lemon sole sautéed in lemon caper sauce with artichoke hearts);
"Risotto Con Capesante" (Italian Arborio rice with pan seared fresh
scallops, mussels, shitake mushrooms, vegetables); "Bistecca di Manzo ai
Ferri" (grilled Delmonico rib-eye steak) and such regional fare as Paella
and Bouillabaisse and savory delicate sauces, the Mastromauro family's
passion for excellence is evident in every bite. LaGroceria's contemporary,
elegant atmosphere adds to the fine dining experience.

"We're very proud to have been able to delight our customers for the past 35
years. We have evolved into a Mediterranean restaurant and with our new
menu items, patrons will have an even greater selection of authentic dishes
from other regions," noted Franco Mastromauro. He continued, "Our menu
offers something for everyone and we're always reacting to our customers
requests. Our enthusiasm and delight in preparing the finest meals for our
patrons is constant. In our family, food is love, and our customers know

LaGroceria is "Love on a plate.a very large plate."
