This lovely Italian restaurant is just a few steps away from the Swampscott railway station. On a rainy and chilly night, we nestled into the back dining room with its high-backed benches, and savored our food. Appetizers were superb: a mound of perfectly sauteed calamari with a spicy sauce and a bowl brimful of pasta e fagioli soup that was almost a meal in itself. Oddly, it wasn't on the menu--glad I asked if they offered soup! On to the entrees: fusilli with chicken, artichokes, wild mushrooms, spinach and red peppers, plus ravioli with homemade tomato sauce and cheese. We divided a rich home-made chocolate pudding accompanied by ice cream and whipped cream. Only comment on our entrees: they needed a bit more "spicing up." A few drops of pepper sauce did the trick, and our server graciously brought it to us. Will definitely return. The homemade pasta is sensational.
