"Bites Nearby" is a new weekly feature. Every Thursday, we'll showcase a great restaurant in Westford or a surrounding community.
Long story short? Filho's Cucina in nearby Groton is worth the 20-minute drive.
Using ridiculously fresh ingredients, Filho's serves up mouth-watering Italian cuisine.
For lunch? Try the buffala, tomato, and pesto panini for $8.95.
Dinner? The linguine alla nonna -- artichoke hearts sauteéd in garlic butter with capers, mushrooms, grape tomatoes and fresh basil, finished in a white wine and lemon sauce served on a bed of linguine -- for $9.95.
Other options include insalata di capra -- a salad with lemon vinagrette for $8.95 -- and gemeli salsiccia -- sausage and mushrooms on pasta for $11.95.
