Fat Hen
Hip, intimate Italian & housemade pasta
Italian · $$
Chef Michael Bergin's culinary finesse, cultivated at NYC spots like Del Posto, shines through at this intimate, homey Italian in Somerville, serving elegant but unfussy bowls of housemade pastas and braised meats, plus contemporary yet still-hearty entrees. Thoughtfully curated wines, Italian craft beers and sophisticated cocktails are served in a long, slender space flanked by inviting banquettes.

Uncluttered menu with straightforward, solid food! Delicious! Pasta portions were generous. Entrees were small but well-composed - e.g. a main protein, a sauce, and vegetable garnish. These entrees seem not to be "big plates," where the protein is often accompanied by a side veg and starch. Still everything was delicious. Desserts were unfussy - usually a main component with a complementing garnish, but perhaps could use one more textural element for crunch. Service was fast and friendly and did not decline when the place filled up.

They have a variety of Pasta, Antipasta, and alternative dishes like swordfish or pork shoulder. They have a great spread and an opportunity to get a 4-course meal for $45 for each person at the table. Small, intimate space, perfect for a dinner for two. We went as a group of 6 and had a great time.

Excellent food, perfect for a nice date night. A weekday hits the spot, you're more likely to be able to walk in without a reservation. The appetizers and pasta were perfect. (The main course was weak in comparison, but at this point I had to admit I'd become more than a bit spoiled in my expectations.) Waitstaff was on point -- attentive and knowledgeable without being solicitous and dealt with what could have become a problem anywhere else with complete grace.
