Good Italian food with old world feeling

Old world Italian feeling. Great service and good food. The dinner was very good. They were also very accommodating with our daughter who is a little selective with her food choices. They were very pleasant in offering her any pasta with any sauce on the menu. She was very happy with her meal.

What a find! I came here for a solo lunch while on business in Boston. The Tripadvisor reviews were spot on. Great food, great service, lovely people! This really feels like home - with better food. Very fresh olive oil and crusty fresh bread, excellent insalata mista, and a killer chicken parm beautifully made. Just the right amount of sauce,... More

This is a definite must go. The prices are reasonable and it is right at the North End area near the landmark Paul Revere's house. Also, I am 100% Italian and I grew up on Italian food my whole life and this restaurant has expertly captured the essence of delicious homemade Italian food. I learned from another patron that the...

I had wonderful dinner time with my boyfriend and his parents. They invited me to this amazing restaurant. Usually almost tiny female traveler from Far East cannot eat many big Italian dishes, even if they are "delizioso". But I could enjoyed the time with much hospitality. Sure all dishes were awesome. How many times have I thought wishing having BIGGER... More

I picked this restaurant from some of the reviews on Yelp ( sorry, Trip Advisor:-) ). My family arrived ahead of me and I told them to order appetizers while they were waiting for me to arrive. I arrived 20 minutes after they were seated and no one had stopped by to take their order. Once I arrived, our waitress... More

How anyone can say this place is average is beyond me. A very typical family run restaurant where quality and attention to detail is amazing. The staff were so lovely and quite honestly the food was out of this world. This was our second visit here and would definitely return. Top marks

My family had a wonderful dinner at Limoncello complete with a very fun waiter. The restaurant was very busy and crowded with lots of good energy. Our food was outstanding.

The restaurant is in Little Italy. The food tasted like Italy. We started out with the meat balls as an appetizer. They were up with the best I have had anywhere. I had their Zuppa Di Crostacei E Pesce Fresco, 1/2 Lobster, Mussels, Clams, Shrimp, Fresh Catch Of The Day. Spicy but just right. My wife had the Branzino and... More
