My husband and I were visiting my son, a Harvard student, last month. My son recommended this restaurant for dinner, and we all loved it. My husband and I got the artichoke hearts as an appetizer. My son and gf had the bruschetta. I had the fish tacos as an entree, and the boys had the jambalaya. My son's girlfriend... More

This is good place to come with your friends in the Summer as it has an awesome rooftop terrace. The food is good and the drinks too. I have also been in the winter, and is fine too, sometimes it's super crowded, but is fine.

So, decent bar. Main attraction being the rooftop terrace. Nice views over the neighbouring buildings and churches. Staff were very informative.

I've been coming to this place for over a decade. It's just great. The square has a lot of turnover, but this is one of the places that never fails to deliver great food, good beers and a good vibe. Brunch is good, and not too rowdy. In daylight hours and late on weeknights it's a good place to work.... More

Excellent specials! Risotto, scallops, and beef tips were amazing. Both meals were outstanding and would go back again! Rooftop was worth the wait!
