“Made Our Trip Memorable”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We loved discovering this small gem. My husband and I dined at the bar and Chuck the bartender / server was amazing. Gnocchi excellent. Veal Marsala very tender. Shared a bottle of Nero D Avola very nice and ended with limoncello. Reasonable and friendly service can't beat that. I wish we had this in our neighborhood back home!

“Bartender Dee Dee rocks~!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We were only in town for one night, wanted Italian and wanted to stay close to our hotel. Thanks to TA, we found this delight of a restaurant! Bartender Dee Dee was awesome! She was friendly, outgoing, efficient and gave us helpful tips for ordering our dinner. The salmon special was da Bomb! It was a VERY generous serving of fish which was cooked to perfection as were the vegetables. Tiramisu was just as it should be; light, creamy and not too sweet. The couple next to us had the rib special and commented on how good they were. It was a terrific ending to a wonderful day!

“Little Italy in Cambridge”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Went here at my sister's suggestion - she lives around the corner. We were going to taxi over to the North End, but this was only a 5 minute walk.

Food is fantastic, authentic, and served with a great attitude. We had the Naples Pizza Margarita - a meal in itself. So good with piping hot cheese and basil sauce. The Veal Marsala we split because we had so much. The lemon dessert was light and fresh. Great meal with a friendly atmosphere.

“What a GEM! Awesome Meal and GREAT service!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

So glad we saw the previous reviews. Would never have found this great little place. It's a little off the main drag but not by much and SO worth it. A TRULY great value We sat at the bar - house wine was good - and tried two of the specials. The salmon over veggies was Incredible and the shrimp bianco was also good. Enjoyed the tiramisu.

“YUM!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Great food, good atmosphere, generous portions, great pricing. We ate here twice in two days. We had a bit of an issue with our bill the second night, and it was dealt with quickly and professionally. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable and can make some really tasty suggestions!
