Nice room, good service, very good food... a well-run restaurant that deserves its success. A bit off the main Boston track but worth the trip.

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening and it was yummy. They have a terrific cocktail menu with inventive drinks. We shared a burrata appetizer that was delicious. My friend had a pizza and I had the tortellini they were both excellent. Overall the service was good but there was a long wait in between our appetizer and entrees.... More

First of all, I'm Italian and I know quite well the topic. I lived in Boston for a while and tried several pizzeria with friends. My rankings ranged from sufficient to good. This was excellent, the best in the area. Totally recommended if you want to try something very close to the traditional pizza. Keep in mind that Italian pizza... More

Omg . Went to a party and they had the pig roast. The pig was so clean. Nicely cooked and stuffed with a very flavorful stuffing. Served with nice veggies and roasted potato. Expensive but if you are thinking of getting a bunch of friends together and having something so different this is it.

We were here at a very busy time, with students returning to Tufts and were delighted with everything. Our reservation was honored, and the staff was very friendly and efficient. We had a variety of appetizers(including a pizza-which was excellent), and fish, chicken and pasta for main courses. The swordfish was superb, and prepared unlike any I have ever had.... More

We went to Posto tonight and I think it was closest to pizza we had in Italy two years ago. It was amazing as were the other appetizers of calamari and a caesar salad. Everything was fresh and tasty. Posto has a fun vibe and is a great place in Davis Square.

We got a table for two at 7 pm without a reservation on Friday night. That's a good start. Salads were a bit pricey. The crust on this pizza is so hot, soft and delicious. One pizza was good for the both of us. The highlight of the meal was the dessert. Three freshly made cannoli for only $4. This... More

This is the real deal. We had a sausage pizza here last night that disappeared down the hatch faster than Hillary's latest lead in the general election. Quite unfortunate, because I could have eaten two easily, and we all know The Donald uses a knife and fork in those tiny hands. I'm sorry, was that my outside voice?
