I'm very picky when it comes to Italian food and I can honestly say this was some of the best Italian food I ever had! We went on a Friday night and it was very crowded. We had to wait even though we had a reservation. The wait was well worth it. Appetizers we had included Arancini, calamari, & mussels... More

We went for a late dinner here based on a recommendation from one of the workers at the Improv comedy place around the corner. Not sure if they were just having a bad night, or took a dislike to our small party of 3, but we felt kind of... "unwanted"? It was strange. around 8:30 on a Friday night so... More

Lovely location and interior, in Salem Street just off Hanover Street, the main thoroughfare in North End. Prompt service, too. As a celiac, I could have any pasta or pizza on the menu (except lasagne). Affordable prices and hearty portions - you can easily order lunch here and have the rest for dinner! My wife loved her pizza. My gluten-free... More

Our meal was horrible. We won't be going back. The only thing I can say good about this place is that the pizza is tasty.

Excellent home style Italian food. Very busy with a lot of families eating at tables which is always a good sign. Meals are big. I should not have ordered entree, main and dessert right from the beginning. Was full after the huge entree of meatballs. Good value with lots of choice. The Linguine Frutte Di Mari was delicious.

This place has a nice atmosphere. Very popular and gets crowded and noisy. Wine was good. Our server was very nice and spoke to us about her time living in Italy. Salad was ok - I found it a bit bulky. My brick oven Margherita pizza was also good but quite doughy. I love the crust but I ended up... More

My family has eaten here many times over the years and we've never been disappointed. The gnocchi, spaghetti and meatballs, pizza, linguine amd clams, chicken parm..... are all highlights. Fried calamari appetizer my family tells me is delicious (I dont eat it). Reservations are always suggested. Try it out. You won't be disappointed!
