It wouldn’t be surprising to see Joe Pesci and Al Pacino walk into Mario’s, an old-school Italian restaurant in East Boston that’s been open longer than Ray Romano’s been famous. You’ll find all the classics like lobster ravioli and shrimp scampi served here - all of which come with homemade pasta. On weeknights, it’s easy to walk-in and grab a table, but you’ll want to make reservations on the weekends (especially if Scorsese is also in town).
