My gnocchi entree was delicious and I know the other five in our lunch party were pleased with their different choices. But the service was adequate, non attentive on water refills and not personable (female server). Also pizza is not available here except for dinner, and we arrived at noon, usually a time you'd figure it would be available. As... More

I had the meatballs with wheat fusilli and my husband had the di mare with linguini. Dry, not much flavor, and the portion to price ratio was really lousy. The only thing that WAS good happened to be the garlic bread. 50 bucks and it was takeout with no beverages. What a disappointment.

We were walking from the Red Line back to our hotel and decided to stop for a late night snack/dinner. We ended up ordering two of the flat bread pizzas because we couldn't decide. Both were very good and the service was excellent. Highly recommend this place!

We stopped here for a bite and had excellent paninis. One had grilled chicken and the other had goat cheese. Both were delicious amd came with a side salad. Also had a nice selection of beers.

Very good Italian food. The Veal Marsala was outstanding. The chicken parm and picata were also very good. Very good service to top it off.

Small place, Food and service are great. I just discovered it, I plan on going back more often once the snow melts some more as there is not enough parking in the lot right now.

My husband has been driving by this restaurant for a week and everyday coming home and remarking on the wonderful garlic aroma wafting in the air. So we went to dinner last weekend and yes, the aroma was wonderful, the food not so much. The place was crowded so we ended up sitting downstairs in the "basement". We felt like... More

Huge salads and large servings. My husband and I shared a salad and "squashed olives " pasta. Very good. Walking distance to hotel.

At first I shied away from this place because of it's prices (not TOO bad) but it was my favorite stop on our Boston visit. Excellent food and good service.
