My husband and I were married here last year. Everything was perfect from the moment we met the wedding coordinator until the moment we left our reception. The food was superb. The attention we recieved surpassed perfection. We loved it so much we returned here to celebrate our first year anniversary. The waitress was very attentive and polite. The service... More

Busy restaurant however efficient service by friendly waiters. Extensive menu to choose from and when the food arrived the portion size and the food quality were good. The deserts were also very nice. The bill for two courses for two people was a little above average compared to other similar establishments but would visit again.

We stopped in here TWICE while visiting Boston recently. TWICE because the food is so DELICIOUS. Service is wonderful. Waiters and waitresses all take their time with you when you are placing your food orders. Once your food arrives, the waiters come back often to make sure you are all set and if you need anything else. The meal portions... More

This restaurant has a 50s décor, friendly, helpful staff and has a buzz about it. As soon as you sit down a waiter provides iced water, which is kept topped up all the time you're there. This is a large restaurant that caters for groups as well as couples. The Italian food is great, well proportioned and described in detail... More

A wonderful Italian restaurant in South Boston to bring you wonderful Italian food. While this is an upscale place, there are also people that come in jeans.... The staff is amazing and ready to help. Very knowledgeable about every dish. Service is fast or slow as you want, drinks are generous, the bread is fantastic. Food came out fast and... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
