A friend recommended this restaurant as his favorite in the North End - and I'm so glad he did. The variety was wonderful, the service was friendly and relaxed, even though it was a busy Saturday night, and the food was excellent. We had the Carpaccio and Salad Limone for appetizers. We enjoyed Lobster Risotto and a pasta bolognese for our entrees. I have visited Italy twice, and as an Italian American have had more than my share of Italian food. While dining here, I felt like I was back in Italy and can't wait to come back.
