The main drag in Tempe is filled with bars and fast food places. We should have gone to Boa both of our nights. We did go on a Sunday night. The restaurant was nearly empty, giving us a very nice, quiet and romantic experience with our table lite only by candles. We both had pasta dishes and truly appreciated getting freshly made pasta rather than the usual, dried and boxed stuff. The price seemed reasonable for the quality of food - and much better than the restaurant on the strip we had eaten at the night before for about the same amount. The service was excellent. This is definitely a classier place than the majority on Mill Rd. in Tempe.
