This restaurant is right next to the Hawthorne Hotel, but, we didn't even realize it was there for the first few years we went there! Since discovering it though we haven't been to Salem without going in at least once (frequently twice)! Fantastic food and great service! Very reasonable prices too!

We're in Salem on a really rainy, windy night and just ran across the street from the Hawthorne Hotel because the restaurant was close. What a pleasant experience! From our welcome at the door to the service of our waiter, we were well looked after. I had the spaghetti and my husband had the pork tenderloin with peppercorn sauce -... More

We are from the South Shore and were pleasantly surprised at just how perfect this small Italian bistro is. The food was as good or better than any Italian food we have had in the North End. The service was excellent and prices were very fair. The restaurant was small but ver comfortable. Please try the Veal Bolonagse as it... More

I needed to change our reservation for an earlier time. Since it was across the street from our hotel, I walked over instead of calling. What a surprise as soon as I opened the door. The aroma was outrageous. Tomatoes, garlic and basil were already in the air. But, it was the size and decor that surprised me. So intimate... More

Very conveniently located, very very small dining area. Make reservations! Spaghetti was ok but they give you a huge portion so plan to share.

We were told about this place from the staff at the house of the 7 gables. Was definitely not a disappointment! Food was fresh and the service was great. Kendra had spaghetti and I had veal with mushrooms, both delicious.

They were extraordinarily busy when we arrived and perhaps that had a little something to docwith our experience. Upon our arrival they asked if we had a reservation; we did not, but they gave us a seat anyway. The place is tiny inside and with no air conditioner and a ceiling fan running on low it was very hot and... More
