Food was impeccable. Worth the cost. Wait staff are authentic Italian. Many celebrities have frequented the restaurant. Would definitely go back.

My husband and I hesitated to eat here, because this restaurant does not have a lunch menu. We were looking for sandwiches or pizza, but it was a beautiful day, and after finding a very long line at Pizza Regina, we decided to enjoy a leisurely lunch in the covered outdoor dining area. The food and wine were delicious and the service was friendly. My husband enjoyed the pasta fagioli with short ribs and I ate almost every bite of the risotto of the day with salmon, arugula, and cherry tomatoes. Yes, it was a bit pricey for lunch, but we made up for it by having sandwiches for dinner!

Combo seafood pasta dish (shrimp, calamari, mussel) was bland and had no flavor. Mussels were gritty with sand. The clams in the dish were good but nothing else. Service was good. Overall very disappointed.

What a shame. The food here is actually really good, reasonably price, and the portions are a good size. It was our server and table location that brings the whole experience down. She was too direct and to the point. There was no warmth or pleasantness to her and when asked about certain dishes, she said it was great...she said this on everything but no explanation as to why. She also sped us through our ordering and we barely got everything out before she walked away.

We were also sat in the back area where there was a plastic tarp covering the area from the cold air. We didn't mind this but they didn't have the heat on! We mentioned this and although our server turned it on, another came in turned it back off. Other guests were cold too; people were dining in their jackets and one table even left.

We didn't have to wait long for the food and as stated before, it was really good. But based on everything else, I wouldn't spend the money again. It's not worth it for poor service and having to dine with jackets on.

This is a good place not to go to. Bad food, bad service, overpriced. The worst of the worst among tourist trap Italian cuisine in the North End.
