His stories of growing up are punctuated with memories of family dinners of chili made by Dad, Mom’s special birthday cake, slices of ice cream, and homemade baked beans. In retrospect, every meal was an expression of love.

Technically speaking, Alma Nove is a restaurant. But why quibble? There are only so many places where you can sit outside next to a giant fire pit, sip a well-crafted cocktail, and look out over the bay—and this Wahlberg-family-owned spot is one of them. If you just can’t miss the Sox game, head inside. The bar is long and armed with two 50-inch TVs.

It took a bit longer for chef Paul Wahlberg to open Alma Nove than expected. But when it finally debuted last summer, the Mediterranean restaurant proved it was worth the wait.

This is warm food but not heavy, the pasta interspersed with tender bites of braised and shredded short rib, sun-dried tomatoes, and meaty little artichokes." — Devra First, Restaurant Critic
The Boston Globe South – Wahlberg’s Alma Nove shines like a star on the Hingham waterfront "We ate late the July evening, on couches outside next to the fire. Something about the place -- the soft cushions, the food, the firelight, the service, made it one of those evenings we might remember forever.” — Joan Wilder, Food Writer
