Greeted at the door by a rude, impolite and obnoxious lady and it only got worst afterwards. After a great meal, we requested espressos and 2 sambucca and we were told that there was no coffee. In an Italian restaurant ? We were finally told by the waiter that the machine was broken, as this restaurant has a sister restaurant... More

My friend and I were in Boston for a Medical Conference and it was recommended by 2 people to go to this restaurant in the North End which is considered the Little Italy area of Boston. There are so many restaurants, bakery's and bistro's in this small area of Hanover Street and small street surrounding that I am grateful for... More

My husband and I have spent a lot of time in Italy and are VERY particular about our Italian food. We looked at their menu and decided to go in because we wanted some good pasta. My husband got the Lobster pasta dish and I got the Arrabbiata and we both loved it! They served it perfectly al dente. We... More

Went early on Sunday nite without reservation. No problem with seating. Service was good. Waiter very helpful. Out of a few things we wanted, but had a good meal. The egg plant app was very good, calamari just ok. The seafood fra diavolo special was excellent, as was the Quattro carni ragu. Gnocchi looked good, but didn't try daughters order.... More

So we did & were not disappointed. The servers were charming & efficient. The decor (we sat in the enclosed patio) delightful. And the food - excellent. Two of us had the Pacheri del Mare (a pasta I'd never heard of) with a lot of clams, octopus, shrimp - in a lovely tomato broth. We also had salads and espresso... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant just after visiting Paul Revere's homestead. Our mom was attracted to the open air seating and beautiful flowers. Once inside we were torn, unsure what to order. I went with my old faithful chicken fettuccine and my sister and mom had chicken francese. We were all VERY pleased with our meal. Would've been nice to have... More

I love the old style kitchen in the restaurant. Small space, tight. I was right up against the cooler and had to move so they could get drinks out! I loved it ha ha. I had the "Mom's Quauttro Carni Ragu. Which was beef brasciola, meatballs, pork short ribs and sausage. It was all so succulent and delicious. With a... More

This adorable little place was recommended to us by a local after we inquired about the best place to get homemade pasta in Boston. He did not steer us wrong! All four of us were extremely happy with our dishes. The Lobster Ravioli was amazing as was the Chicken Parmesan. Pasta was perfect and sauces flavorful. But as wonderful as... More
