We made a reservation but still had to wait a bit. The hostess was friendly and accommodating. There is a downstairs dining room. We were lucky enough to sit upstairs. Calamari and the Caesar salad were fresh and delicious. We had salmon, scallops and pasta...More

As the name of the restaurant implies it should be Italian but it's rather an unidentified cuisine establishment. Food was bland and overpriced for that matter.The service was good but it did not compensate for the lack of culinary abilities.

Impeccable service. Orecchiette is perfect comfort food. Ravioli is spectacular with butternut squash and hazelnuts.

Went for a family birthday, 7 persons. Everything -- cocktails, dinner and service -- was perfect. A special shout out for Gareth; he was the best waiter I've had in years.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
