More evidence that South Boston continues to rise. This shoebox sized (seats about 36 people inside) Shawmut Avenue, corner establishment, was crowded on a Saturday night in May. I'll describe the menu as a bit eccentric, with several items I've never seen on a menu before, so if you're adventurous, you might want to indulge. Being a bit conservative, we shared a salad (the only one with the usual ingredients; get the large salad as the portions are small), the pasta with chicken sausage, and two different personal size pizzas.My daughter thought this would be a great place for a date; good wine and drink selections, plenty of lively chatter at the tables (it can get loud), young, friendly waitresses, who when it started to rain, quickly arranged for us to leave our al fresco table, and found a place for us inside. If you're craving a full course Italian dinner, this is not the place to satisfy that kind of appetite. But if you want to talk and eat lunch, or want an after movie or whatever meal, you should find it interesting. It is a bit expensive for the experience, but so are lots of other places in this neighborhood. I might go back to try some of the items I've never seen before. Parking can be challenging but there was on street visitor parking up the block towards IS-90..
