We had no plan tonight so thought to take a walk in the little Italy as my friend loves Italian food. This place to our surprise serves great 'home' tastes Italian cuisine. We've ordered the spaghetti with lobster (base sauce tomato with the lobster) so it was very tasty. Chunky bites of the lobster and the prawn with spaghetti made... 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 .

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

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 enjoyed our dinner.

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
