My first visit here ,but a lot of people had recommended so thought we would give it a try. Food isn't bad but it is only average. The place is cramped and noisy and service was slow. Half way through eating our main course the lights went off where we were sat. Guess the staff didn't even notice as it... More

We have now visited this restaurant 3 times on visits to family in the area and have never been disappointed. The staff, food and atmosphere are always great and it certainly beats other "family friendly" eateries in the area. can't wait for our next trip to Boston.

I really don't understand why people rave about this place. I've been a couple of times recently, once with my boyfriend and once with a large group of friends and both times the service was poor and slow and the food was below average. The restaurant is cramped and uncomfortable. Birth times it took ages for anyone to come and... More

Can't fault the food here, lots of choices and it's all good quality. Had 13 in our party having different choices and all left empty plates which is a good sign all the various dishes were of equal good quality. The steak was a good size and cooked perfectly although some of the steaks are quite pricey compared to other... More

I have to say that the restaurant is a lovely place. Little bit noisey for my liking but then I was expecting it be, as it was a Saturday night. Food is pleasant but not amazing. Service was great and would consider coming again

We come here very often as a couple set in our ways, anniversaries and many other occasions have been spent here, my partner particularly enjoys the steak as I do the chicken dishes with one of the best lasagne in Boston, would highly recommend. Me and my partner will continue to visit.

We booked the Italian Connection for my Nephew's birthday, although I had been here several times before it was a long time since I had eaten here. We booked a table for the lunch time as my nephew wanted to go out in the afternoon. it was almost empty, unsurprisingly, most busy in the evenings, it was nice to be... More

Had a nice night here with friends - surroundings and staff were very good and it was nice and busy on a Saturday night Food was fine but nothing special - reasonably priced i guess Wouldn't rush back for the food and probably wouldn't go just as a couple but for a group it was fine

Go in there all the time for special occasions, and I have never had a bad meal. This time, had 3 courses for once. Starter was fantastic (garlic bread and anti pasta), I had steak for main, brilliant and cooked exactly the way I asked. Then, I had pudding, first time in there, and the chocolate junkyard was great. Staff... More
