Ask to sit in their comfortable table/booth in the front window....it has lots of plush & beautiful beaded pillows to lean on....just like Cleopatra ! Also a fun place to people watch the passersby on Main St (while they are watching you back !). Good pasta, but by the time it finally arrived, it had been nearly 50 minutes & it was already coagulating. Granted we were there on a Friday night during the tourist autumn leaf "peeping" weekend, but I suppose they were understaffed that evening. Since the word Mediterranean was in their title, I was hoping for a lot of dishes from there....but no stuffed grape leaves or spinach pie was anywhere on the menu....disappointing. The décor is gorgeous which helped make up for the poor service & food.

This has become our choice for consistently outstanding restaurant experience in Concord. Creative kitchen, always has unique specials. Varied menu, have had excellent veal, special lamb kabob. Sufficient wine list to complement meal. Special desserts and coffee. Outstanding old world service from Jon. Over a year, has been reliable and special every time.

Well done restaurant in downtown concord. Opened in 2010. We enjoyed mussels in a family recipe and cevapi which are the home made sausage, very mild and tasty. Special salad was a perfect addition. Jonathan is very attentive bartender
Do visit

relatively limited and pricey menu....no substitutions (can't eat pasta, want rice? nope)
cheese and olive plate as app. $12.00. adequate cheese, but 8 olives? ...hmmm.
I ordered pasta with mussels, clams, shrimp. came on a big plate, looked like a lot. however the pasta covered a mound of onions (so may that when I left most on my plate the waitress remarked at how much onion was in the dish), and the dish was over salted. 2 of 3 mussels had a very "off" taste (old?), there were 2 tiny clams and 3 shrimp. a $20 dish that could be had elsewhere for much less.
companion had sausages which she said she could have had the same at home. her side was chopped tomatoes, etc.
it took a very long time for the kitchen to produce the food.. and.... there was no one else there!!
both dishes, the app. 2 glasses of wine and tip came to $84, not a terrible amount if the food and service good, but overpriced for quality of food!
want good Italian? go to Angelina's. about the same price, much, much better food. or walk up the street to the barley house.. great burgers, good specials, and a varied menu.

Where do I start? Slow service, no flexiblity with menu substitutions. Soup special $12.00 a bowl. Lamb special $41.00. Bread $3.00 for six slices of baguette, no butter. Boston prices yet restaraunt is a storefront in downtown Concord. Sent letter of complaint to owner/chef with concerns; no response. Too many restaurants offering a better value to give this place another chance.
