That's the time to go calling at Guiseppe's Fresh Pasta & Fine Food. Said by many to have handmade pastas fit for an Italian grandmother straight from the Old Country, all dishes are as fresh as fresh can be. Favorites include the bread (no Italian joint is worth its salt without to- die-for bread, and they've got that base covered!), chicken pesto sandwich, and chicken parmesan. Specializing in prepared meals for large parties, Guiseppe's finest can be enjoyed right at home. • 257 Low Street, Newburyport, 01950, (978) 465-2225, $$ JOSEPH'S TRATTORIA A cooking and eating bonanza is what Joseph's Trattoria offers. Whether it's an evening of Italian dining or a quick stop at the "groceria," this fine food mecca is a great place to find a cui- sine-themed adventure. The menu promises everything from specialties like Filetto di Sogliola and Pollo Slatato e Aragost, to simple pizzas and calzones. But Joseph's doesn't stop there. Wedding cakes, catering services, even chef-hosted cooking classes are all part of this boutique trattoria's Old World scene. • 145 Oxford Avenue, Haverhill, 01835, (978) 374-8288, $$$ LAROSA'S For delectable lunch and dinner items that include specialty sandwiches, pastries, and fine Italian coffees and teas, visit LaRosa's where customer appreciation stands on par with haute cuisine.

And make sure not to miss their wine and craft beer dinners on the outdoor patio. • 7 Bernard Street, Andover MA, (978) 475-1777, $$ LUCIA RISTORANTE & BAR Lucia Ristorante & Bar showcases cuisine inspired by dishes from more than 20 regions in Italy. Artisan pizzas, modern twists on tradi- tional favorites, a choice wine selection, and a lively atmosphere (made all the more so by Abruzzi-themed décor) earn favor with regulars and newcomers alike.
