Great Sunday Dinner

We came here to celebrate my wife's birthday. The staff was not the most professional, but our waitress was very nice and helpful. It was a hot day so we wanted a table by the window. The not so nice hostess told us the table was reserved. Of course the "reserved table" remained empty until we left. That kind of... More

An old friend was visiting from Georgia and asked me to reccommend a good Italian restaurant in the North End. I picked Limoncello.It had been 5 years since my lat visit but still remembered I had a good meal back then. We made reservations for 8PM and were seated right away. Once we were seated the waiter brought over some... More

We had a most wonderful lunch here and could not have been more impressed. The bread and olives they bring to begin the meal was amazing. The bread comes from Iggy's in Cambridge. Honestly, if I'd had the time to go grab a loaf of this ciabatta, I would have! We ordered the antipasto and an appetizer special of bursts... More

Had a later night dinner. Started with a salad of soft greens that could easily be shared. My husband had the lobster ravioli, which could be written lobster with RAVIOLI. I had the seafood plate, which was filled with mussels, a light white fish, squid, and a very tender lobster tail. Wine sold by the bottle only and by the... More

This place was very busy when we arrived. We had a reservation, but I don't think they marked it off but instead were able to just seat us. We started with burrata which was tasty. I got a pasta Bolognese which was a very large portion and tasty. my friend got something with shrimp, and it was clear that the... More

I had the chicken parm and my husband had the Hadock. It was good. Service was ok. We would have had a Limoncello, but couldn't get the waiters attention and ran out of time.

Wonderful Italian restaurant ! The veal marsala was excellent!Everything was delightful. Excellent service and nice quaint place. Close enough to Marriott Long Wharf that we chose to walk.[If you are not a walker, I would suggest a cab.] Definately on my list for my next trip to Boston!

Went for lunch after our Freedom Trail Tour and we left very satisfied. The veal parmesan and chicken parmesan were delicious. The kids loved the spaghetti. There were 3 servers in the place worked as a team and were making sure everyone was taken care of. Then, we concluded our meal with a cannoli. Love it.
