Not quite sure what all the positive hype about this restaurant is.

Ate their last night with hubby. The decor is cute.

The food is very overpriced and nothing special. We had the fried clam appetizer. It was so salty that we could not finish it. I had the crabmeat salad. There was barely any crabmeat. My husband had the Cioppino entree. The portion was smaller than an average appetizer size.

Never again!

Having lived and worked in Boston for many years I am very familar with Boston restaurants. This is definately one of the best. It is in the famous North End so expect a small restaurant. On weekends, like all the good North End restaurants, you can expect a long wait. Go early or for lunch if you don't want to wait. The emphasis here is on seafood and wine and if that is what you are looking for you won't be disappointed. They have a unique take on all their dishes. If you want oysters, choose from the written list on the mirro and watch them shucked for you. Choose the bar for the best seats in the house.

Awesome place in the North End. Not located on the main street, which can get busy. Place is super small, but the set up is really nice, bistro style. Service is pleasant and efficient. Their main thing is seafood. Great variety of oysters ( raw or cooked, ill take 'em), nice lobster roll. My favorite thing here is the cioppino. The broth is something else. a bit pricey, so come for lunch if you can.

Amazing food. The lobster bibb salad was light yet decadent. The monkfish was served Moroccan-style, which was interesting and delish. Loved it!
