From the moment you cross the threshold, you feel like you are part of the family. I felt like I had known the staff all my life from the way they treated me and my family. It was true Italian dining! I had a fantastic meal, and wonderful experience. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to all of my friends... More

Very underrated place in Boston. The food is terrific, the owner is very friendly and willing to answer any questions. I tried the Haddock Margarita because I saw it in a segment on Guy Fieri's show on the Food Network and I was not disappointed. The desserts are outstanding to say the least. Reasonably priced as well.

Don't be thrown off by the "Express" in the name. This is a nice place to sit down, relax, and enjoy good food in a clean and friendly atmosphere. The owner was very friendly and answered my son's food allergy-related questions in a genuinely caring manner. Very generous portions at a good price-- we fed our family of 4 for... More

We stayed in Boston for 7 days and ate here 4 times! Jim and Jonathon do a wonderful job. Fish, meatballs, pizza, it's all great! Very hospitable. And the red velvet cake and canoli-yum!! We will be back.

When I was led to this restaurant by my boyfriend the other night, frankly I didn't expect to much from this restaurant. But as soon as I sat down and had a very friendly conversation with the owner - I immediately felt right at home. The cocktails were perfect, the food was out of this world and we ended up... More

Everything in this restaurant is made from scratch and the most authentic Italian food. I haven't had anything I don't like, but I have to tell you the pizza is the best I have ever had anywhere, and we are Italian.

We flew in from Dallas and arrived here just after dark. Very hard to park in this neighborhood. It's tight, and the restaurant doesn't have any parking of its own. Beware. This place is tiny. Probably seating for 25 max. But it's worth the hassle. The pizza really was great, and everyone serving was friendly. The only reason I didn't... More

On vacation here. Stopped in for first time. Everything was great! Eggplant Menino was wonderful. Our son loved the spaghetti and meat balls. Good bread as well. You won't leave hungry. The plates are huge. Great Italian
