Stopped in to this place after shopping for a few hours on Newbury. Had found it online and was excited when I learned that they had gluten free pizza so I made sure that my friend and I stopped in during our 3 day trip to Boston. After walking by many places on Newbury street that were packed, we found... More

Went there on a nice chilly spring afternoon and sat on one of the outside tables. Had good wines by the glass and a great burrata. Unfortunatelly I could not stay to dinner.

This little "Italian" restaurant on Newbury Street (not very far from the public library) is well worth trying out. It is a charming setting, with an interesting interior and an even more interesting brick patio out front (which is lower than the sidewalk level). I had the Tortelloni All'Arragosta (lobster-stuffed pasta) and my wife had the goat cheese-stuffed halibut. They... More

We were strolling down Newbury Street mid afternoon Saturday and decided we liked the look and menu of this place. The outside seating is limited and looked a bit cramped. We opted to eat inside. The atmosphere was relaxing and a bit upscale. We had a second floor table with a view of the lower bar. Our waiter was personable... More

My wife and I shared Gnocchi and pizza and both were perfect. They reminded us of the same items we had in a restaurant in Florence a few years ago. Believe me, that's quite exceptional. Based on this simple lunch I'd like to go back for dinner. The restaurant is nice enough for a more formal dinner.

We saw this on trip advisor and was able to reserve on opentable within an hour. Seated on time and our server was very pleasant and knowledgable. Great wine choices and the specials were pretty great. Hawaiian snapper and lobster basil risotto. Husband had the chicken parm. The tomato sauce was fresh and full if flavour. Will come back.

A real treat! Just realized I was a guest here so didn't pay myself, but I would have gladly done so. Really excellent food, a really good wait staff, and very reasonable prices, especially for Boston. My only complaint was that it is a loud restaurant.

We made reservations via OpenTable.com during the Boston Marathon, a very very busy weekend. We arrived and were seated in minutes. The staff was extremely friendly. I had the mushroom risotto and my wife had chicken with asparagus risotto. Both came out promptly and hot. Nice wine selection. We recommended this restaurant to others in our running group and they... More

Food was excellent and the atmosphere was cool as well. Only thing that kept me from grading it as excellent was an incident at our table between the two waiters over who would actually wait on us, it was extremely unprofessional. Almost ruined our entire experience but I'd like to think this was a very freak incident. Hopefully!
