We heard about this place via the Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives website originally and since we were in the area on vacation decided to try it out, not yet really sure what it would offer since the show hadn't yet actually aired on the Food Network.
The owner was very nice and welcoming. The food was great! We had meatballs, the Frutti di Mare, and a large piece of pizza. All of it was delicious. Perfect blend of spices in the sauces. Very generous portions - the Frutti di Mare, for example, could easily serve 2-3 people by itself and was loaded with seafood (no skimping here). The prices were very reasonable as well, especially compared to some of the other places we tried in Boston.
For anyone who likes Italian and is flying into Boston for a visit, this is a must try. The restaurant is pretty close to Logan International Airport making it an easy meal spot before or after flying.
