Had dinner with friends on Sunday night during the Halloween week in Salem. Found street parking nearby-always a bonus! Our waitress Kaitlyn was excellent. Helpful, present and not intrusive. Our older kids shared a pasta dish and really liked it! Our grilled calamari were just right and the duck was super! Medium rare, no sweet sauces-finger licking good. Topped with... More

Well prepared seasonal ingredients, diverse menu, probably everyone in your group will find something to please their palate.Their wine list is pretty good, the cocktails interesting, but the hard liquor and beer assortment is somewhat lacking, for my taste and my companions.

It was excellent food and service. We were seated before our reservation. They were friendly and the food was filling and delicious, especially the handmade pasta.

Had dinner with friends. Everyone loved everything they got. Duck was fantastic, pork bellies great, numerous pasta dishes loved by whole table. Even the salads were terrific. Wine selection was good something for everyone. Beer selection was ok but you're not here for that

This is our "go-to" restaurant for birthdays and anniversaries. Everything is fresh and homemade, and cooked perfectly. The service is also terrific. It rivals any similar restaurant in Boston and is without a doubt one of the best restaurants on the North Shore. I recommend the homemade pasta and the cocktails- yum!

I can't think of one negative thing to say about this restaurant - food, service and ambiance were all amazing. Server perfectly timed our food and was present when we needed her, but left us time to chat and enjoy our meals. I will definitely be back, and soon!

I should start by saying that we actually loved this restaurant for quite awhile, so much so that I had my 50th birthday celebration here and invited 14 people to dine with me!!! Since that celebration, 2 years ago, I have returned twice and have had bad experiences both times. I will say that each time it was due to... More

We had a great meal at 62 last night. We had a very helpful server, Sarah, that coached us through the menu and made thoughtful recommendations so we decided to approach the meal tapas style to try as much as possible. The restaurant has a great vibe. Muted lighting, warm wall colors, comfortable seating, and great music. It's located on... More

Unique and delicious food helps to celebrate a special occasion or as a nice complement to a gathering of friends. Nice ambiance, quiet and attentive service. We enjoyed a selection of various small plates including zucchini blossoms, rice, pasta, pizza...all creative and tasty. Desserts are amazing too. While not inexpensive, the meal was a good value. Will definitely visit again.

Start to finish, or anniversary dinner was exceptional. Since we were donning for a special occasion, we requested a nice table layover, and we're not disappointed. The restaurant sits in a retail area, so there are no real views, but the dining room is nicely appointed, and we we govern a window table, so it was very nice. All of... More
