Excellent service and delicious food

We had a four course prix fixe meal on a quiet Saturday night in late August. The service was attentive but not at all obtrusive. Filet mignon was superb and I highly recommend the chicken ravioli appetizer if available.

Restaurant week last week and we had a Groupon special. The Groupon menu was slightly different than the regular restaurant week and was an excellent choice. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked, ravioli was flavorful and the whole meal around the table was to everyone's expectations. The service was fantastic. She was very attentive to our table and the support... More

i tried umbria for the first time during restaurant week last week. i ordered the mussels despite the fact that i was told in advance by the server that they were pre-cooked, because i can never turn down mussels. but, it was a mistake, as they were utterly overcooked. however, the filet mignon was done to perfection and more than...

Great pasta but the service could have been warmer. We expected something special since it was my friends birthday.

This is a big place and was pretty empty when we had a business function. We were on a small room on the 3rd floor. It was extremely hot which made the room seem small and closed in. I did not stay long as a result... not sure I would hurry back, but it may not be fair to judge... More

I love the location, the gnocchi and the atmosphere, great restaurant! Though I ALWAYS get the same thing, they have great specials and my husband has never eaten the same thing twice!

We had stayed in the Hilton Downtown Boston and we're recommended by staff for a great steak. This restaurant is right around the corner and let me say it's very good. I ordered a steak and my wife had the chicken ravioli. Its pricy but it's worth it if you want to treat yourself to an excellent meal. Our server... More

The prices are high but the food is worth it. There is nothing by way of variety but what ever you get, you'll love we did.
