Pizza's the prize - Marlborough eatery scores big with portions

Linguine's Italian Eatery • 350 Boston Post Road West • Marlborough MA • 508-481-9747

Linguine's Italian Eatery on Rte. 20 in Marlborough is a work in progress. Whether it turns out to be a da Vinci or a pencil drawing remains to be seen.

The unassuming eatery, open for about two months, is affordable and the portions are generous. What surprised me most were the pizzas and calzones. They were served extremely quickly and both were among the best I've ever had.

The pizza ($8.50 for a pepperoni) had a thin crust, tasty sauce, bubbling cheese, and a generous sprinkling of pepperoni. The calzone ($4.95 for prosciutto) was equally as delicious and filled with cheese and layers of prosciutto. The calzone came with tomato sauce on the side.

In both, the pizza dough had an almost sweet taste. When the bread is as delicious as the filling, you know the meal is going to be good.
