Review of

Review of is the website for an upscale Mediterranean restaurant called “Vlora Boston” that is situated in Boston’s Back Bay Restaurant district. They offer upscale cuisine for foods coming from the Northern Mediterranean region such as Italy, Greece and of course Albania. The restaurant takes many borrowings from Albania and offers a unique dining experience for those in the Boston area. Not only that, they also use high quality ingredients from the region and offers a great selection of vegetarian and vegan choices. They bring international cuisine to you without forcing you to actually travel the world.

Many “Mediterranean” restaurants claim to offer true Mediterranean cuisine, however often times it either focuses on one region or offers choices that not everyone will enjoy. The mix of Italian, Greek and Albanian is a refreshing choice to have at a restaurant and it would be interesting if more restaurants could follow this style. The owner of Vlora is from Albania and brings this influence to the culinary table.

The food is cooked with the up most care and quality using herbs I’ve never heard of, but glad they used them! They offer a variety of dishes such as stuffed meatballs to something more exotic like octopus. It is truly a unique dining experience. The deserts they have are they best around and they offer such treats like tiramisu and baklava.

The upscale environment is perfect to host your own upscale event. From a wedding dinner to a business meeting the restaurant looks great and provides great environment for your guest. The healthy and various choices the restaurant has will ensure that there is something for even the pickiest of your guests. A private room setting is available for bigger and more formal parties. They are also able to accommodate smaller “cocktail” functions that are intended to be more casual. There seems to be a 50′s feel to the restaurant which works in its favor. The end result is a very classy and upscale looking restaurant to eat with friends or clients you are trying to impress.

The service here is first class and the employees here will make you and your guests feel welcomed. It can be busy some nights, especially on the weekends so it is important to get a reservation if you plan to go out then. Otherwise, the restaurant offers specials at different times of the day so it is neat to come back and see what different specials they are offering.
