5. Luigi's Lasagna & Pizzeria


This is some seriously thick, filling pizza. The cheese, the meat, the crust … it’s a lot to take in at once. Pizza sauce and dough are made in-house at this Commercial St. shop, where people seem to stumble upon it. The service is very friendly and prompt. I wasn’t sure what to expect from Luigi’s but I will say if you enjoy meat lovers’ pizza then Luigi’s is right up your alley.

4. Boon Burger

Burlington & Oakville

The good folks at Boon Burger prove you don't necessarily need meat to create a phenomenally satisfying meal. Their Cowboy burger is the top seller in Burlington and boy, it's massive. Made from scratch, burgers are handmade, grilled, baked, and served on a whole wheat bun. The black bean patty comes with BBQsauce, "bacun," lettuce, tomato, and it's slathered in Bermuda sauce (which really should be called Vegan Big Mac sauce because it tastes gluttonous and McDonald's has officially been replaced for all cheat meals going forward). This Canadian chain, or "world's first vegan burger cafe," has mastered selling plant-based junk food for the masses.

3. 7 Enoteca


This sexy little Neapolitan wood-burning pizzeria boasts some really delicious food. Thin, pita-like dough is topped with sauce, fresh cheese and basil, and spicy salami. My pizza was a tad soggy in the middle and resembled pita bread more than pizza crust. The quality of the ingredients, though, made up for it. Dough is made with the finest “00” wheat flour imported from Naples and fermented naturally with an ancient slow-rising sourdough recipe, then baked for 60 seconds at 900 degrees in a traditional pizza oven built on-site by a third-generation artisan from Naples. Then there’s the atmosphere, which is oh-so-sexy when the lights are dimmed. Keep in mind, the kitchen shuts down one hour before closing. You’ve got to head to 7 and check it out.

2. Sinful Desserts


This little shop on Mainway offers up a variety of high-end European desserts which are simply decadent. From wedding cake to delectable little German treats to Belgian chocolate, items are made from scratch. The shop has been tempting Burlington residents since 1996. There are also pastries (meringue to cranberry concoctions), and biscotti, too. Check it out already but don't blame us for the sugar high.

5. Seasons


It’s been a bank, the Town Clerk’s office, and the police station. But now it’s a fabulous fine dining option where you’ll find excellent food, drink, and service. Seasons has been running for about two decades and it’s no secret that it practically owns Restaurant Row. (Bru and Corks are also run by the same owners). The building dates back to the late 1800s when it housed the Anderson Bank. The food, though, is incredibly 2018. Take the butternut squash soup — it’s vegan and tastes divine. The White Lasagna, however, isn’t dairy-free, and you certainly won’t want to give up such luxuries after devouring this dish featuring turkey ragout, spinach, mozzarella, and fresh ricotta. It’s wonderfully creamy and had me stealing bites from my colleague Chrissy’s plate (which I realize isn’t appropriate at such an establishment but when you write about food there are no rules, OK?!).
