“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

We went here since it was in walking distance of our airport hotel. It is in a non descript building in an old neighborhood. The restaurant is small, about 8 tables. The food and service were excellent. They have fresh seafood served Italian style. Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food.

“What a great dinner at a good price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Wow had some outstanding Swordfish, grilled and perfectly cooked, 16oz of heaven, juicy, smoked grilled flavor for a mere $23.95. Unbelievable! Also had seafood marInara over pasta was good. We had an app. of clams that were fresh and tender. If your lucky and have room for dessert try the Lemoncello Marscapone Torte, light creamy lemon and refreshing after a heavy meal. This is a casual restaurant with very little ambience but makes up for it with well prepared food at very reasonable prices in a city with pricey restaurants.
If you are ever in North Boston check this place out because I will be back!

“a hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

the Embassy Suites at Logan Boston recommended this restaurant. We walked the short distance. It was well worth the walk. It is a small place that is so full of culture. The food is so good. Freshly made everyday. The Italian food especially the eggplant parmesan was great. We ordered several appetizers and that way we got to enjoy several things. Dessert was yummy too. The wait staff was so friendly and glad to see us come back that week. A real treasure.

“Yummm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

I took my son to lunch to celebrate his last day of camp concert, and we couldn't get a table at our first choice. I turned to Trip Advisor for help as I'm not that familiar with East Boston, and found this place. It was 3:00pm so not very busy and we were seated right away. Our waitress was new and a little nervous but so helpful and sweet! She overheard my 11yr old talking about what he wanted that wasnt on the menu and without our even having to ask assured him the chef would make it no problem, and make it he (she?) did! The food was quick to arrive, piping hot, so delicious and fresh. It absolutely earned a thumbs up and eye roll from my son who is a food snob of epic proportions, and I couldn't say enough about it too. We will definitely be back, and soon!

This seafood is fresh...the batter is perfect, not greasy but crisp and perfectly balanced so as not to overwhelm the fish. Absolutely must go...!! It is worth it...!!
