  • Some of faces you've never seen, but interesting all the same
  • It's very good, but is dusted with cinnamon, so to me it's not a true cannoli , but it is delicious just the same

      When you walk in to First and Last Tavern in Middletown, take your time. The entryway is lined with photos, both old and new. Some of faces you’ve never seen, but interesting all the same.

      Past presidents, actors and even autographs of those famous personalities that have graced the Tavern with their presence. You will be greeted at the end of this walk, by a very nice host or hostess who will

      generally seat you quickly.

      If you are seated at a booth, you will have more black and white photos to look over while you are handed your menu. On a more recent visit, my husband, an avid Red Sox fan, was less than thrilled to see that we were at the “Yankee booth” as photos of the New York Yankees covered every square inch of our space.

      The menu is filled with great Italian food that gives you the impression that there is a little Sicilian woman in the kitchen cooking up a storm. One of my favorites is the Pasta Primavara.

      The vegetables are cooked just right and the flavor is fantastic. The portions are smaller than family style dining, but large enough to have leftovers for the next day (or later that night).

      Another favorite is the shell pasta, with a meatball and ...

      ricotta cheese on the side. As a true Sicilian (well, half at least), I grew up knowing the difference between store bought ricotta and homemade.

      This is homemade. It’s creamy, rich and perfect mixed in with your pasta.

      The only dessert I’ve had here is the cannoli. It’s very good, but is dusted with cinnamon, so to me it’s not a “true cannoli”, but it is delicious just the same.

      Every time we go to the First and Last Tavern in Middletown, we are pleased. This is a great stop on your way to the movie theater at Destinta, right down the road.

      Tell your server that you are seeing a movie and they will rush out your food. So the next time you find yourself in Middletown and craving some good Italian food, stop into First and Last, you leave satisfied and, well, stuffed.
