Great little shop for company-worthy take-out and Italian staples. Their bread is amazing and makes a fantastic panini.

I stopped here for a quick dinner with my teenage son, who'd just spent some time in Rome. We loved the straightforward kitchen staff, the simple but authentic and delicious food, and the barstools in the window from which we could watch Brookline sidewalk life. My vegetable lasagna was "clean," pasta with carrots, tomatoes, broccoli--you could see and taste the vegetables, which weren't smothered in cheese, and the pasta was delicate and perfectly cooked. My son's chicken spiedini and rice were delicious, and the food reminded him of what he'd enjoyed in Italy. Excellent value and great experience!

Space enough for small kids to run around; picnic tables in the center. Kid-free couples will probably prefer the barstools at the window. The bread was fresh but otherwise boring. Enjoyed the spinach gnocchi in cream sauce. A disappointing mozzarela & tomato sandwich--no oil, no pesto or basil.

The decor is simple, evoking Italian eateries. Glad to see a variety of Italian drinks--Limonata, Orangina, Pellegrino water, etc. Great for a quick bite, not for a big date.

Definitely try the pizza here. The cheese and dough are so light that you wont feel heavy after eating ine. It takes a little bit for them to prepare, but they def make it with love. For salad lovers, you can customize your own and it tastes great and their chicken isnt dry! Definitely come back here again...

We come here every week for great food, value and service. $5 pasta on Wed & Fri - must try their Fedora sauce in penne- a staple in our family!
They make great sandwiches plus the cappuccino's wonderful!
Don't go here asking for spaghetti with meatballs- they don't have it because you can't get that anywhere in Italy. I have never had a bad meal here.
