Northborough - Every town should have a restaurant like A.J. Tomaiolo’s Italian Restaurant. The restaurant, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, is owned and operated by three sisters, a brother and their father. They are dedicated to serving fresh, authentic Italian food to their community. They updated the menu recently to include even more traditional dishes and flavors. My boyfriend and I, each with our own Italian grandmothers’ cooking in our memory, had a lot to choose from. After dipping fresh bread in oil, we started with something we’d never heard of: Italian nachos. They are like an extremely thin crust pizza, topped with a blend of cheeses, pepperoni and salami and served with a generous bowl of dipping sauce ($8). A.J. Tomaiolo’s has spacious seating and a lovely bar area, separated nicely so it won’t disturb diners. The bar has its own menu of small-plate items, and the martini options are popular with patrons. There is a large wine menu with options by the glass and the bottle, and there are more than 15 beers to choose from. The dinner menu has grilled pizzas ($12-$14), fresh sandwiches on Italian bread ($8-$16) and all of the Italian classics like cacciatore, parmigiana and marsala. House specialties
