Our favourite restaurant to visit in Salem. Authentic, delicious Italian food, great music and the coziest atmosphere. Been going for five years and will return every time that we visit Salem! Order the pasta fagoli! Yum.

Fabulous restaurant small and cozy on a chilly October night before the obligatory ghost tour in Salem. Truly a hidden gem. The best pasta I have tasted outside Italy. Attentive staff great with children.
