Bustling, relaxed, nice, Italian restaurant in the North End with tables that are pretty close together, along with a bar area in the back. People seemed happy to be there. We shared a Misto Verde salad that was plenty for two people. And we were both in the mood for comfort food so we went with the classic fettuccine with... More

Good middle of the road italian cuisine. Vegetable soup for starters was a B- it tasted canned. Pizza was good not great for the plain Margarita. Salads not great. No great urgency to rush back to the famous North End filled with italian food for this one.

A noisy, usually crowded Italian restaurant on Salem Street that serves excellent food and has good service. My wife and I come here every time we come to Boston. I love their caprese salad and I usually order the pork shank, but this time tried the linguine with mussels, clams and shrimp. The pasta was fresh and flavorful and the... More

While pursuing through the North End of Boston at lunch time we were looking for Italian food. Walked by several white table cloth places and was instantly enamored with the customers laughter and great smells wafting out through the open windows. My lamb sandwich and husbands pasta was excellent for the price. This is a place I would recommend to... More

Let me preface this with the fact that I have been been going to the North End for years and am not from out of town. I had heard of the restaurant before and finally decided to try it. We had a pizza and a baked pasta dish with sausage and ricotta. Both were good, but did not knock our... More

Delicious and authentic Italian cuisine in Boston's North End. Very noisy and crowded. It took some convincing to get them to honor our reservation. But once we were seated the service and food were top-notch!

Excellent dinner i had here. The place is way more than just a pizzeria. If you want to have a casual dinner, with excellent atmosphere, tasteful decor and good service go here. Not highly priced. Popular place so i HIGHLY recommed a reservation before walking in, since its always busy. Mainly beers and wines is what they have in their... More

We brought friends from out of town to the restaurant to experience Italian food in the North End. Despite making a reservation we waited 45 minutes past our reservation time for a table. As the bar was packed we had to wait outside. Once seated the food came quickly and was excellent. The staff clearly wanted the table for another... More
