Italian

It’s not every day that you come across a Peruvian-Italian joint, and Taranta does the fusion cuisine right by featuring individual dishes from each cuisine. Try the Paiche Amazone, an Amazonian fish prepared differently each day. They’re on the steeper side, but the guava and ricotta mini cannoli -- each coated with a generous helping of pistachio brittle -- are well-worth the Alexander Hamilton. Nowhere else in the North End will you find such an unexpected (and delicious) take on the classic Italian pastry.
