I loved The Old Spaghetti Factory. I know it's a chain, but they had great pasta and shredded Mizithra cheese on their spaghetti.
I also miss both Aku Aku's.

I second Uncle Pete's in Revere - fantastic BBQ and the best Asian Slaw. So sad to see them go.
Also, Hungry Herb's in Medford was a great place. It was a small sub shop, but the menu went on for days and they were very generous with their portions. The quality of food and service took a nosedive during their last year of business, but I was still very sad to see them close up shop.
