This a small place with a very selective menu.. Traditional flavor was present on every bite. The Burrata was really fresh as well as the calamari. I strongly recommend.

We hesitated waiting an hour to have dinner on a Sunday evening. Most people on line seemed to be repeat customers The tomato and mozzarella was amazing So was the bread and my linguine with clams and mussels. We will definitely be back

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
