This is a small neighborhood place where we eat once a week. The Italian specialties always arrive at your table steaming, and there is enough to take home for lunch the next day. Pasta bolognese is a favorite. Nightly specials are very good. Service is efficient and friendly.

Don't let the outside appearance of this building put you off, this a good restaurant.
Very good beet and arugula salad with goat cheese and balsamic dressing
Shrimp and calamari risotto...excellent
Penne pasta with meatballs and pomodora sauce....very good
Service a little on the slow side due to a lack of servers for the number of customers.
A glass of Sangiovese I had ordered had turned to vinegar but was replaced with another without question.
Atmosphere, simple but comfortable. Didn't check out the bathroom.

We dined here early on a Sunday evening. We actually started with cappuccino's and espresso's. They were awesome, much better than any of us expected. The bread and oil is good. Two of the diners ordered a combination of the fresh pasta with another dish prepared with Salmon and it looked delicious and they said it was. I ordered the meat lasagna special, it too was delicious. Be prepared to have a leisurely dinner, things are made to order and worth the wait, it's not fast-food. I ordered a classic martini that was supposed to be served with a Blue Cheese stuffed martini, it wasn't and when I asked about it; they stuffed some olives with Blue Cheese for me and brought them right over!

It was a very pleasant experience, the wait staff was accommodating, the kitchen prepared our food with our slight substitutions happily without any issue.

It's an unassuming look from the outside, but very pleasant on the inside with a nice warm vibe that's welcoming and friendly.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in Quincy.

. Food portion was generous and delicious. All food was cooked to order so my wife was able to have less butter with her pumpkin ravioli. The chicken picata was delicious with home made fusili. Tables are a bit close and more comfortable sitting away from the door.
