Great pastas and the service is great. They cook all of the pastas to order, so you know its fresh and you can change what you want in it. Great place and reasonable!

We arrived in Boston during rush hour and were hungry and tired by the time we reached our hotel. We just wanted to eat dinner quickly,and avoid a chain. We found this place, within walking distance of the Courtyard in Brookline and were so happy we did. The food was terrific and we were so happy not to have to... More

I love this little place. They offer delicious food for a reasonable price. Portion sizes are not too big and bot too small. Staff is friendly and food is ready quickly. There is a limited amount of seating inside(communal picnic tables) so it is great for a quick bite or for take out. They also sell a variety of products... More

Although this restaurant probably sells more take-out than dine-in (there's a large picnic table and some wall counter space to dine in and you order and take your food to your seat), I ordered Penne Arrabbiata (spicy tomato sauce with garlic) and a salad that the proprietor gladly added items to (green olives, black olives, mushrooms, artichoke hearts) and touched...

I saw the reviews and was so grateful I found this little neighborhood restaurant! I wish they were in my hometown! Quick service and absolutely delicious. And the price, what a deal! What more can I say! While this isn't a sit down restaurant (you go up and order and then sit at either the window seating or the communal... More

A tiny cafe with a communcal table - it's size might be offputting but don't get fooled into thinking this is just another red-checkered table cloth "Italian american" place. This is the real deal - authentic, super quality plates of pasta. Homemade sauces that are really startlingly good.

I like coming here once in awhile when I want a quick and cheap bite. Bottega has a special where on Wednesdays & Sundays, their pastas are $4.99. Not bad! So because of that, I like to come here only on those days. When you come in, it's a small place that looks more like a takeout type of place,... More

This is an authentic little Italian deli/takeout/restaurant with wonderful food. It was filled w/locals, some of whom did not speak English at all, and ordered in Italian. They have wonderful deli salads and pasta dishes, as well as desserts. Also, specials of the day on pasta, etc. for only $5.00. I had pasta w/chicken and red sauce. The sauce was... More

This little corner Italian restaurant feels more like a take out/ grocery store. The meals are inexpensive and the menu extensive. Non existent service , would probably be better as take out. Food was served barely warm - it was okay but would never go back. Also no restrooms for customers?
