Service was impeccable. Great story about their appearance on DDD on the Food Network. Would highly recommend this place to anyone interested in a great meal at a... More

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.
