Great place for lunch

Was warm and inviting on a cold winter's a day- a nice escape. Butternut ravioli was divine!! Amazing bar.

This was our fourth time eating in the North End this trip and this was my favorite! Delicious bread and dipping oil. We loved the Penne ala Vodka and the pizzas. We will definitely be back. Also, very friendly service. The other restaurants had rather unfriendly and hurried staff.

Great staff (ask for Jackie if on a weekend - she was amazing). The food was wonderful. The atmosphere was exciting and lots of people and noise but we could hear each other and loved loved the food! Give it a try for sure!

there were so many choices but the large windown and inviting storefront brought us inside. and we are so glad we walked in. the chianti was the best, the pasta, meatballs, tortellini soup all made for a delicious meal and a great day in the north end. and on top of that it was the first nice spring day. staff...

We stopped by for a late lunch. I had Gnocchi al Pomodoro and my companion had the Zuppa (soup with large piece of chicken and vegetables) and the Pollo Fradiavolo. All delicious! Service was ok, cafe was small but nice. As a bonus, Mike's Pastry is just on the adjacent corner. Head over there for dessert!

Before the blizzard hit, we decided to stop by Florentine Cafe as our "last meal". ;) No particular reason, it was just near our apartment. Our waiter didn't seem very knowledgeable but he was nice. The food took a very long time to arrive even though there was only one other person in the restaurant. It paid off when I... More

We went here for lunch with our son and daughter in law and sat at the bar. Our bartender was attentive and gave great service. Two of us got the lobster ravioli and we both loved it. My husband had a sandwich which came with a salad and he gave it to me. It was excellent and had a homemade... More

Great Italian restaurant in the center of little Italy. Good value, quantity, tastes, and service. I would recommend this cafe to anyone.
