For years I've driven by this restaurant and thought- hey, someday I'll have to try it. The someday was a week ago. What a gem. Had the most incredible gnocchi ever! Outdoes anything in Italy. And leave room for the chocolate desert.

There is plenty of parking and has a great location if people are coming from different areas. We went to celebrate an 80th birthday. Our large party of 14 had a great time and the service was exceptional. Thank you, Dave for making this birthday so special. I shared a beef dish which was cooked to perfection. The wine list...

I prefer not to complain but to compliment a job well done. So I haven't written a restaurant review in a while. I have been disappointed more than impressed. There was a time when a fine restaurant offered perfect execution of classic meals - presented graciously, in an intimately comfortable and peaceful ambiance. That was a standard. Anyone else remember... More

Myself and other family members opted to book a reservation to celebrate my sons's second anniversary. We opted out of going into Boston and dealing with the parking etc. we have been here before and love the experience of fine dining close to home. The wait staff are wonderful and know the menu as well as the fine wines that... More

Not sure whether people who rave about this place either never had good Italian food or good food in general, but except for setting (looks like Tuscany trattoria) - food quality (not even getting into quantity area - ONE scallop in $30 risotto???) is average at best and when served to the table, may be to having only one cook...

Poor food prepped ruined our New Year. Ordered a salad type appetizer and the second forkful contained an olive pit. I broke my tooth in half on the olive pit and had to have the tooth pulled on new year's eve. Now have to pay for a tooth replacement. Not to mention that it ruined a family night out with... More

Another great option for Italian in Waltham. A great menu, nice and comfortable dining room, and terrific food made for a wonderful dinner experience. Really, the only thing keeping me from ranking 5 stars is that the service is just slightly not quite at the level one would expect. First the food. Everything ordered and presented was hot, delicious and... More

Beautiful decor (Italian countryside), very good at times excellent food, but the service detracted from the experience. Two of three entrees at our table arrived barely above room temperature - obviously they had been sitting around for a while before being brought to the table. Unfortunately, the waiter did not return to the table after serving the food, so there... More
