Perfect Location for Newbury St. Shoppers

We had lunch in this restaurant on our recent trip to Boston. It is located on Newbury Street, a beautiful street in the heart of the city. It is a big place, and during our stay there were only few customers, which is something I don't really enjoy, but we read good reviews about the food and... read more

We were a group of 10. We came in because we saw what people were eating and it looked great. They were busy but still able to accommodate our group in no time. Our waitress was great and the food was as we hope it would be!

Nice spot for Italian with great pizza. Our service started out pleasant and then we barely saw our server again until our check was brought. The Manager even came to get our check. Never got the ice tea ordered because he never came back to check on us. Tried the mushroom/chicken risotto which was tasty but huge serving for 1.... More

Great location and menu. If you want something that is not on the menu they will make it for you. Great service and food. No wait. Sat outside on Newbury street.

I ate here with my son and husband. The concierge at the hotel recommended it to us. Service was good. I had the gnocchi and my husband had a pizza. We both enjoyed our dinners and wine. The atmosphere was modern and lively. We were happy to be seated right away on a busy Friday night. We will come back!
