They have great food. It is one of our regular go to restaurants in Boston’s north end. I have never had a bad meal here. The salad is fresh as is all the food. The price is is great too.

First of all I must say the managers saved our evening with a last minute walk-in with my daughter on crutches due a foot injury. I could not make reservations earlier but owners were very accommodating. Food was delicious! friendly and fine ambient; price follows...More

In town with my brother and sister in law and they specifically asked to eat at this little place based upon their past experience. It was a rainy yucky cold Tuesday evening right between a busy downtown pre-Halloween weekend and actual Halloween. The street was...More

Ho hum service. Felt very much like dumb tourists. Very overrated Italian food. The Italian take out by our home in Toronto makes far better carbonara for half the price. Mussels were good but mussels seems to be good everywhere in Boston. My husband enjoyed...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
