My wife and I wanted to like this place, we really did. We found ourselves kidless on a Saturday night and went there last minute. We didn't have reservations so they sat us in the middle of the side room in the flow of traffic...More

The food was OK, service was friendly, and the ambiance not much to boast about. I didn't understand how they are getting away with $25 entrees and $15 wine pairings. I ordered a lamb dish that was 'highly recommended' by my waiter, but wasn't overly...More

Without doubt the best Eastern European food I've had in Massachusetts/Boston. It's authentic, tasty and nicely presented. If you're unsure what to order, try the samplers. It's all so good!
