If you love Italian Food, then this little hole in the wall is a great place for you. It's a hidden gem, by the purest meaning of the word. The small unassuming place, located in a little plaza, with other little places, stuck in the corner. You would never notice it if you drove by it. It's the type of place you would see on a Anthony Bourdain "No reservations" show. The walls inside, well, they need paint, heck, the whole place needs a makeover inside. From the walls, to the tables, chairs, ceiling. It doesn't hold more then maybe 7 or 8 tables inside, with a large menu on the wall, like a take out joint, which you can do if you please.
But there in lies it's charms, these guys just make damn good food. The same guys in the back cook all the time, a couple old Italian guys, always slaving away making amazing piping hot dinners, no warmer's here, no microwaves, just a small kitchen, with cooks who know how to make amazing Italian food. You got Tony Bennet, Frank Sinatra, playing over the aged sound system. But like a fine aged cheese, this place will just satisfy you. In fact, even if I lived in Boston, I would GO HERE, instead of the North End sometimes, cause it is just that good.
If you are looking for a large fine wine list, or a upscale looking place, I suggest elseware. You don't come here for any of that. You just sit back on that 15 year old looking chair, and enjoy the food, cause that's what it's all about.
I have been here proabably, 15 times. I hope the word never gets out that this place is really that good. I hope it stays the way it is, unassuming, small, and that this review gets some people interested. Dare I say it's some of the best Italian food in New England. If you read my review of "Gas Light" in Portsmouth, I said they had the best pizza in New England. And a year and a half or so later, they were voted best pizza in New England. So if you are in the Merrimack Valley area, GPS it, get here, do what you gotta do. You won't regret it.
