What's To Love

You will have to take time to enjoy Semolina’s modern vibe, La Cascia’s bread, & Sandwiches at Bob’s Italian Foods.

What's Not To Love

The streets around Tufts University can be busy during the school year...and especially graduation weekend! It’s a little busier of the residential options because of its close proximity to the Mystic Valley Parkway and other main arteries.

Is it for me?
