Best of Natick

Lola's Italian Groceria

If you told me 20 years ago that there would be 3 italian joints in downtown Natick within 600 feet of each other, I would never have believed you. And that's just what we have with Lola's, Agostino's, and Comella's. Wedged between Heads Up Hair Salon and the old site of Jones Drug, is Lola's Italian Groceria.

It's a great location, because nothing says I'm done with my Orange Theory class like a veal parm dinner with ziti and some garlic bread.

About Lola's Italian Groceria

Lola's serves up more than just sandwiches, you can get frozen dinners, family-size portions, and 25-person Antipasto platters for $70 bucks. How savory!

You can get sauce by the pint (alfredo, bolognese, marinara, and meat sauce), and, they also sell Gluten Free Cannoli Shells, which is kind of cool. And let's not forget a full sheet of sicilian pizza for $30.

Parking is a bit tight downtown, so good luck with that. If you want the Lola's experience without the hustle and bustle of downtown, try Little Lola's in South Natick. The ambiance is first rate.

What to order: Spinach Arancini

"Risotto stuffed with spinach and mozzarella cheese, breaded and fried" - what's not to like?

Final thoughts on Lola's Italian Groceria

I remember Lola's being pretty good, so I should really make it there more often.

Agostino's Italian Restaurant

A great place to get served some toasted ravioli and a plate of parmagiana. Agostino's has a good separation of church and state, with a formal dining room below, and a cozy bar above.
