“Great Food”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Great variety of dishes and great service. Food was excellent. Located at Fisherman's Wharf and an easy walk from any of the area hotels. Went twice during our weeks visit.

“Good food great value!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

We ate an early dinner here today. The Boston clam chowder was excellent as well as the crab cakes with pesto aioli. My husband had a steak which was reasonably priced and quite nice. We ate on the outside patio which was charming and comfortable.

“Italian cuisine with a twist.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Nice family style restaurant located in the Fisherman's Wharf area. Outside sitting available. Food is a little bland for my taste, but a lot of cheese takes care of that. I had spaghetti with salmon ; good but not great. On the other hand, it seemed that the restaurant was full of locals and people that went there frequently during years. Service was good and prices reasonable.

“Quality restaurant”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Really nice relaxing atmosphere. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was quite tasty. We had bruschetta, clam chowder and spaghetti al'antonio (or similar) and they were all awesome.

“Great Restaurant and Food”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

We ate here this past Sunday, arrived around noon.

Hostess: We sat inside to cool off and there was no wait.

Waitress: Kind of blah but I think that was her personality.

Food: We ordered clam chowder-great, very tasty. Also ordered fish & chips, and Chicken Parmigiana. Food was excellent and good portion.
