Excellent quality for the price you pay

Friendly staff and competent pasta. Not the best in Boston but amazing quality for what you pay. Choose the Fedora fetucine, and try the tiramisu or a canole and you will not regret it.

We wanted lunch before swim meet finals at Boston University, and as we were walking to a different restaurant, we looked through the window and decided we would stop and try this little gem. It's not fancy at all... but the food was fantastic! I felt like I had stepped into a village in Italy. The pasta was fresh and... More

If you happen to find yourself in the suburb of Brookline, I highly recommend dining at Bottega Fiorentina. This place has been in business for over 20 years, which should demonstrate its consistency and quality. On Wednesdays, the pasta is just $5, and there are no surprises in terms of receiving bad quality. The food is always tasty. The employees... More

We're regular customers for many reasons: lovely cured meats, cheeses, and olives; friendly, heartfelt service; convenient location.

Despite high hopes for this gourmet fast food joint, everything I tried here tasted like freezer burn. I don't think the oil used was fresh, either. Try to find a place where the food is cooked to order.

I went here with a large group. Total of 8.... Including 2 kids. My kids downed that food faster than ice cream! Everything was wonderful. The gnocchi is the best I have ever tasted. You can't go wrong here. Large picnic table is definitely family style though.

This place deserves its good reviews. The food is good and relatively inexpensive. There are only a few benches for seating, so you can eat in, but it's also good for getting some quick lasagne or a panini to go.

What a great find! The food Is authentically Italian. We went on Sunday not knowing there is Sun and Wed special. The selections on the menu are few but we all had something different and nobody was disappointed. If you're looking for fancy tables, a decor of some sort or a server to come to you, it won't happen here... More

Great pastas and the service is great. They cook all of the pastas to order, so you know its fresh and you can change what you want in it. Great place and reasonable!

We arrived in Boston during rush hour and were hungry and tired by the time we reached our hotel. We just wanted to eat dinner quickly,and avoid a chain. We found this place, within walking distance of the Courtyard in Brookline and were so happy we did. The food was terrific and we were so happy not to have to... More
