Good food and quaint spot

Food was fantastic from the fish to the pasta to the steak. Staff was very accommodating and worked with my celiac food issues. They offer homemade gluten free pasta. Place is small which was perfect for an intimate conversation and celebration. I would head back here when in town. We had fun and... read more

It is located in the heart of the north end , boston historic neighborhood I've been visiting this restaurant for the past 20 years. Never disappointed .

We went here at the start of our vacation and it was so good we returned two weeks later for our final vacation meal on July 4th. Everything about this restaurant was excellent. Nice north End location. We had not booked but luckily got the final table right in the window of the restaurant . The welcome and service throughout... More

I've been going here for over 20 years and I've never had a bad meal. Everything is always fresh, always good. NIce wine selection and great service. Trifecta of restaurants. Small but that's what I like about it.

Ravioli stuffed with fig, walnut, and marscapone served with two veal medallions in a sage cream sauce. A little ground black pepper on top. Yup... It was really good. This was an off menu special. The menu items looked VERY enticing, too. Short by-the-glass wine list was adequate. The range of full bottles was ok, too. Methinks the food is... More

Six of us walked into the Italian area and just started to read the menus posted outside restaurants. We like the look of it, asked how long before a table, 20 minutes, so we waited and thank goodness we did. We started with fried artichokes, really good.The mussels dish was excellent. I had pork Osso Buco over polenta, to die... More

I travel to Italy three to four times a year and understand very good food. This restaurant is as authentic as any Italian restaurant I have ever eaten in. The flavors are rich and the textures are perfect together. We started with the Mista salad which was a great choice as it was light yet flavorful. I had the spaghetti... More

Visited Terramia this past New Year's Eve for dinner for 6. Although we had to wait past our reservation time, it was clear why the wait; dining is never rushed, and most patrons love to linger because they just feel that comfortable! The food is the most delicious! My husband ordered a seafood dinner that was not on the menu,... More
