a good local place

great place for drinks and apps. Dinner food can be anywhere from average to great depending on what you order. they have several areas i which you can dine depending on what you are looking for, bar area, lounge area, and two dining rooms, one with a fireplace.

This restaurant has the best Tagliatelle Bolognese. Everything about this dish shouts Tuscany. Also had their appetizer of clams in a light red sauce, which was a small portion, but delightful. The bar area is very attractive with the white brick walls. The service was very pleasant. A good choice when in the No Andover area.

Our go-to Italian restaurant, much better than your usual run of the mill Italian food. Lots of variety and excellent bar as well!

Been here twice and haven't been particularly impressed. Have decided to give it one more shot and then if still underwhelmed, then it will go on the "we won't be back" list. Just average at best, small portions for the price which is not inexpensive, service fine, bar is fine, but restaurant and food just meh...........

I have a simple rating for restaurants. Would I go there again? The answer here is no. Salad was over dressed. Special seafood entree at $27 was anything but special and the pasta was over cooked. Service was good and the overall decor and ambiance pleasant but I went for the food hence my poor rating. There are better options... More

Neighborhood place with okay food. Probably still too expensive. Strange layout. We share the chicken dish, which then makes it a good deal

Terrible acoustics, difficult to have a conversation. Sound of conversations from far side of dining room can be heard. Food sounds exquisite with fancy menu descriptions, yet nothing special when eating it. Service was very slow, even though this was an unrushed meal. I ate at this place when it had a different name a few years ago, and it... More

The food is delicious here. Great Martinis and creative cocktails, too. But - the one negative if you are looking for a quick meal and not necessarily a place to spend the better half of an evening out - the service is slooooow. I don't mean the wait staff - they are great - it's the pace of the meal.... More

Went for a birthday to have some drinks. We had dinner at the bar and the pasta dishes were very good. Drinks were good as well. Nice place to go to.
