5. Portabellos

Portabellos is a cozy little restaurant located in a small plaza on Derry Rd. They offer a great selection of pasta (by far the most pasta dishes of any of the other places on this list) including classics such as Fettuccini Alfredo, Penne A La Vodka and Spaghetti and Meatballs. Warning: indecisiveness will ensue. Not only is there a lot of options to choose from but everything sounds and looks amazing. If you love seafood pasta, then the Lobster and Crab Linguini is a must-try. Their special on Wednesday is your choice of pasta for $15.99!

4. Locanda

Everything from the decor to the service to the music and the food is on point at Locanda. The intimate setting makes it a great spot for a dinner date. The Fresh Fettuccini Bolognese made with veal was incredibly satisfying and filling (not to mention great value). A drizzle of their homemade chili oil was the cherry on top. If you prefer something a little less meaty, there are a number of vegetarian and vegan menu items to choose from. Room for dessert? Be sure to try their homemade cheesecake with raspberry sauce!

3. West Plains Bistro

Excellent food, great prices. This adorable little Aldershot Village gem fills right up in no time. That oughta tell you something. Offering up French cuisine, the bistro serves market fresh cuisine (and offers a lovely patio come summer). You can go with the chalkboard picks or start with the Fried Cauliflower (lightly breaded and fried, romesco sauce, and garlic aioli) and chicken liver Pate. There’s also Classic Escargot, Pistou Shrimp, and Baked Brie to start, plus mains such as Steak and Frites, Frenched Pork Chops, Lamb Shank, and so much more! But on this day, we were all about the Bistro Burger. it features a ground beef patty with braised beef, garnished with bacon, arugula, roasted garlic aioli, mushrooms, gruyere, and caramelized onions. It arrives on a pretzel bun. One bite in, and that’s a wrap. We’re in straight burger heaven. Finally, dinner isn’t complete without dessert. There’s an array of cheesecake, plus pie and of course, Creme Brulee!

Grill or griddle?: Grill

Price: $19

2. Community Restaurant

Community Restaurant thrives on its hearty menu and positive atmosphere. Owners Alka Dhir and Vanusa Moore opened in early 2019, and they’ve already built a reputation as one of the top-rated overall restaurants in the entire region. 

What makes Community Restaurant so successful is its robust menu that can accommodate anyone’s tastebuds. Even meat-eaters are raving about the crabless crab cakes and tempeh-based dishes. 

Want a burger and fries? Get it with almond parmesan and mushroom gravy. Feel like pasta? Try the beet ravioli or Beyond Meat sausage and peppers fusilli. Weekend brunch? Order a mimosa to go with your cauliflower florets topped with dill and cashew tzatziki.

Community Restaurant also offers a variety of desserts you won’t normally find at a vegan food establishment.
