Creamy, pillowy pumpkin stuffed tortellini rings don’t get much better than when they are made fresh in the North End. Giacamo’s does this dish the best, tossing their soft handmade pasta with a decadently rich sage mascarpone cream sauce. Don’t be surprised when you finish every last bite.

Who said pumpkin has to be enjoyed only as a dish?  We love ours in a cocktail form and Sumaio Hunan Kitchen has just what we are looking for. Kendall Square’s newly opened haute spot features a  bourbon-based Fall-Filling cocktail (only available through the end of October) complete with pumpkin and apple flavors combined with ginger and a dash of sparkling brut.
