“If you feel like taking a drive, go over to Humarock to this scenic spot on the river. The restaurant is run by the Polcari family of Boston's North End fame and the food is top notch. They have pizza, seafood, Italian specialties and good old American beef and chicken. They even have gluten-free items.”

“Location is spectacular - right on harbor - personally, I think best for just drinks and bar food or Sunday Brunch. Also, little outdoor cafe - Salt House - attached to Atlantica is fun especially around sunset.”
