Always great food. Authentically good Italian food and great service in the cute little town of Somerville. Great outside patio, bring your own bottle makes this a great inexpensive meal. Delicious pasta, chicken, seafood. They always have specials like half price pasta on Monday and Tuesday. Half price chicken on Wednesday. Highly recommended

Went there last night with the family (9 people) and received wonderful service (thank you Amy) and excellent food. I had the Veal DeLuca with pasta and am looking forward to having my leftovers. The prices are reasonable and it's BYOB.

We met some old friends to catch up - they recommended this place. Italian atmosphere, a HUGE menu with some great specials. I had the stuffed Flounder, a special - it was delicious and more than any one person could eat. I took home leftovers and ate it tonight One mistake we made was ordering a appetizer of a salad...

First time at this location. I was there for a adult celebration. Large group of close to 30 people. Staff was super friendly and attentive. They were able to easily meet my requests for a vegetarian meal. Started with Fried Calamari, bread, fresh olive oil and marinara sauce. Moved to a dish of antipasto. Then broccoli rabe and sausage ...... More

We were celebrating my son's high school graduation. Service was excellent, food was outstanding! Portions were plentiful! Everyone enjoyed their meals - salmon, shrimp, pasta with vodka sauce, veal, and chicken. The fried calamari appetizer was perfect! The lemon sorbet was the perfect ending to the meal and the presentation was beautiful! This is an excellent restaurant! This is my... More

Had a party of 18 (and 4 Moms) for Mother's Day and loved it. We were originally scheduled to go to Savor, but when the party expanded to 18 (from the original 16), we were forced to change. In retrospect, we're glad we did. Food: We ordered family style apps (calamari, tomato/mozzarella, mussels). The mussels were a 10 out of... More

I waited to have dinner twice at this restaurant before writing this review. This second visit was the more positive experience: Here the positives: The decor is absolutely enchanting, especially the upholstered dining room area and entrance. The bread was warm, fresh and delicious, just outstanding. The dinner portions are extremely generous, you can easily have a second meal with... More

What a quaint little place on mainstreet. Beautiful interior, friendly staff and simply the best lasagna my wife and I have ever eaten. Period. They've ruined it for other Italian restaurants. And there was more than one person could eat. Plentiful portions. I had the spaghetti with the meat sauce and the wide, long obviously home-made noddles and it was... More

Tried this restaurant a couple of times, it's just ok. Their menu is kind of limited, quality of food is just average. The only upside is it's byob.
