I have never felt so much indesiveness when reasing a menu. I seriously considered ordering two entrees and eating half of each and boxing up the rest. My mom and I had to have one each of their specials, a lemon-pepper lobster papperdalle and blue crab ravioli, but I am dreaming of their butternut... read more

Wow, this was the best lobster pasta I have ever had! Everything else was good as well, and the service and ambience were nice. Highly recommend giving it a try! This place was super popular, so definitely get reservations.

My husband and I along with another couple dined here this past Friday night. The food was great along with the service we received. When the bill came we calculated a 20% tip and split the bill in half. The other couple,while signing for the credit card, mistakenly put down $20 for a tip (14%) rather than the $28 intended....

They were full but fit us in somehow... My husband had the Gnocchi. We had bruschetta as an appetizer which was great. Absolutely delicious!

We were here twice in a few days because the food was so good that as soon as we went back to our rental apt after dinner we made another reservation. We live in CA but were visiting on vacation. The North End has lots of restaurants but this is really a winner. We had the burrata special, which was... More

We received just what we expected. Good food at a good price nothing more, nothing less. Was our dinner spectacular? No, but I was not expecting it to be. We had a decent piece of veal and some pasta and we enjoyed it. This place is more about the experience of going to one of the most popular places in... More

I cannot give these guys more props. My father came to Boston to visit and I made a reservation for a Saturday night and I'm so glad I did because with only a few tables, they were extremely busy with a line out the door. It's small but cozy and certainly not a lot of room for the staff to... More

What a great location. It's in the heart of a neighborhood that's a nice mix of residential and commercial. The specials all looked great, and we each had a salad and split a seafood and pasta dish. We also recommend the white sangria. Great service and the windows were open and it was a beautiful day.

Honestly, I had expected more based on the high ratings this restaurant constantly receives here. But maybe it is mostly visited by people who have never been to Italy... Overall, food was ok but far from special. The bruschetta was particularly disappointing; the lobster ravioli, though tasting good were quite a small serving, and the seafood risotto was uninspired. We... More
