Tosca is the flagship restaurant of Eat Well Inc. Open for dinner only, Tosca is located on historic Hingham Harbor and offers creative regional Italian cuisine focusing on fresh New England flavors and local, seasonal ingredients. Constructed in the 1910 Granary Marketplace building, the award-winning restaurant boasts a theatrical setting with exposed brick, imported tiles, mahogany woods, and an open kitchen from which executive chef Kevin Long takes center stage.
Just went to Tosca's in Hingham ma for the first time this past week. Simply a great place!!! Ate at the Bar, great service, delicious food with a very upscale but casual atmosphere. The staff was very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this place for a great night out. A little pricy but worth the price. Look forward to going back.

Jake's has been serving award winning fresh seafood for over 50 years! We are a seasonal (open April-November) restaurant located in beautiful Nantasket Beach directly on the water! We feature a full service seafood market for those wanting to take fresh seafood home and prepare for themselves and offer a full liquor service as well as a children's menu.
We visited here on a Sunday evening. We got in before 5, after 5 the line began to form out the door. We ordered the salmon sandwich and it was excellent. The fish was fresh, the roll was bakery fresh and the lettuce and tomato were fresh as well. The salmon was grilled and large in portion. The french fries were fine, but I would have preferred a wider fry than the narrow sliced. Service was excellent, staff was friendly and courteous. Prices were great for a local seafood restaurant by the water. We would return if in the area.

I suddenly remembered my good friend's birthday and dashed into White's Bakery while at the Derby St. shops on another mission.
Staff there was SO helpful! I just wanted a little celebratory sweet to bring along with the gift had just purchased.
After telling my dilemma to the sales staff, she winked -- said wait one minute and came back came back with a very large cupcake (or very small birthday cake) complete with decorations & a candle! Perfect!!! She even offered to add the recipient's name to the cake. $12 later and VERY happy, I highly recommend this bakery for it's accommodation, quality and service!

Great, unique flavors of ice cream here. Had "my favorite cousin" that had chocolate covered pretzels and chocolates covered potato chips mixed in a sweet vanilla cream base. It was yummy. Will go back to try the raspberry Oreo and Hingham sludge! You gotta stop in here if you are on the South Shore!

Once again we went with a local place for breakfast. We were told that sometimes there is a wait but it’s worth it. They were right! Small place but absolutely delicious! Homemade potatoes had a slight spice that some may not care for, but were delicious! Would go here again for sure!

Redeye Roasters offers a relaxing environment with a great view.
This small coffeehouse has a nice variety of baked goods, breakfast sandwiches and coffees.
This easily accessible location off of 3A makes for a convenient stop.
They offer indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor patio allows dogs, which is a very nice feature.
The coffee drinks are carefully prepared, so they take a bit longer than a typical Starbucks run. The 'Redeye' was a delicious caffeine boost for the morning!

Went here after reading reviews. Found the food to be very good with good sizes portions! The chowder was loaded with clams and prepared just right. We tried the prime rib special dip sandwiches which were very good made with fresh prime rib. The fisherman’s platters that others were eating was big enough to share with two people or more. Looked great!

My wife and I ate here during a recent visit to the area and were very impressed with the overall experience.
We made a reservation on OpenTable.com and that was very easy. Upon our arrival the staff had our information handy and were very friendly from the time we walked through the door. We talked with multiple members of the staff and they were all very nice and helpful.
My wife had a lobster pasta dish and loved it. The said the noodles were very, very flavorful and she could eat just them alone and be happy. The serving size was very large and she had a tough time eating it all because it was just so much.
I had the duck breast and it was fantastic. The duck was cooked perfectly with a very flavorful and crispy skin. The duck alone was great but combined with the sauce and it was fantastic. The accompanying succotash was also very good.
We did order desserts too. The blueberry shortbread was good. Sweet, but good. We also got the pecan ice cream. It was very good as well.
There is even parking available behind the restaurant which is nice and uncommon for many places in the Boston area so that's a bonus!
The only downsides to Alma Nove that we found was that there was limited seating in the waiting area which wasn't that big of a deal but if you arrive with a party or after a party there isn't anywhere to sit while you wait. Other than that, the only other thing was lack of a sweet white wine available on the wine list. Most of the white wines were dry and we are a sweet white wine couple. The Riesling wasn't a bad substitute but a sweeter Riesling or Moscato would have been nice.

A neighborhood modern american restaurant. Working with local farms to present a frequently changing farm fresh menu.
Went the with a business partner for dinner and we were in time for some $1 oysters. Great beer selection both on tap and bottles. Exiting menu with many options- loved the wings.

I went there twice during the Christmas holidays,both times this was quite crowded; a Sunday Brunch and an afternoon luncheon two days later. We were disappointed in the Eggs Benedict as its served on a brioche type roll. Much prefer the standard English muffin. Can't recall if the menu was specific, but pretty sure it didn't state that. We went specifically as Eggs B. were on the menu. Not too many restaurants serving brunch in this area, so feel that some additions to the menu would be well received. Lunch two days later was very long, and that time of year when shopping was on the "to do" list and we mentioned we didn't want a leisurely lunch it become disappointing when we were there over 2 hours for salads and sandwiches no dessert. Like the atmosphere.(Bring back the white whiskey sours, they were very good!). Both visits people mentioned that the menu selections seemed tired. Will check out menu online before I return.
