“Save room for gelato”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Great lunches: salads, sandwiches, etc. Fabulous gelato. Service can be a tad slow if you are there at rush hour, but it's worth it. Very creative menu with lots of choices.

“Creative, good food”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

The food is very good here. Dinner can be slow, but you are treated with individualized cooking and care. When we visited, the chef & owner was a one-man show. Apparently his waitress hadn't shown up and he was taking orders, cooking, serving, and cashiering. He took care of one table at a time, but he managed to pull it off. My wild mushroom ravioli was exceptional; my husband's eggplant was more average. This town is small, and there are only 3 restaurants in town that qualify, in my mind, as good: Molasses Grill, Bistro 1888, and this one. By the way, the wine and beer selection here are outstanding. We also had lunch here, and the service was faster than dinner, with a nice selection of sandwiches, salads, and fabulous French Onion soup!

“A real find! Wonderful!”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

Little South Boston is the last place you would expect to find such incredible Italian food! This is the kind of place that you don't expect to find outside of New York City. Fresh, all homemade, delicious -- don't miss the homemade gelato. I've been for lunch and dinner and was thoroughly blown away both times.
