Walked past here in the afternoon, liked the look of it and returned that evening. Glad we did. Food was excellent, and service attentive but not intrusive. Didn't empty the wallet either. Fresh pasta was superb.

Consistently high service, good variety and simply delicious food. Lunch is reasonable and dinner is a treat. Try the 'rigatoni Toscano' and the San Felice vino. One of my top Boston recs and a clear Beacon Hill favorite.

The atmosphere can be a little loud and difficult to hear others if your party is large. The bread is delicious w/ the olive oil for dipping. Definitely get the rizzoto w/ saffron - it is incredible.

Amazing filet, gnocci, and other pasta dishes. The seafood isn't amazing (I've tried others who have ordered seafood dishes, and they aren't my favorite at this particular restaurant). I've been here several times and I'm never disappointed. The specials are also fun - my favorite...More

Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking

It's too bad they are not a part of Open Table reservations. Call when you get into town. The North end is a close 15 minute walk from that area for more choices of Italian foods.
