“Best restaurant in north end so far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

I moved to the North End four months ago and have dedicated my self to do a gastronomic tour around the neighborhood. So far my favorite restaurant. We did reservations which was not really respected as usual, but the wait was only like 20 minutes at the most. Food was excellent, service was great.
I had the veal with cheese, spinach and fettuccine, I really recommended, perfectly cooked. For entree we had a Bruscheta of the day that was great. Wine was really good as well.

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

The pasta and Italian food here is divine! Authentic Italian food that you will not find apart from NYC and Italy! The atmosphere is intimate and very romantic! I have been here 4 or 5 times and it never disappoints!

“Make a Reservation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We went here based on our friends recommendation who lives in Boston. We had an average experience in regards to the food. I think some of this has to do with our visit at the end of a busy Saturday evening. The service was on point. The staff was attentive and worked the room of 12 tables with efficiency. Our food was prepared well with two issues that could be fixed to make this and excellent experience. 1. The Caesar with white anchovies was served in a very warm bowl. 2. Our entrees were not hot, warm yes, but not hot. My scallops were cooked perfectly but both of the pastas on our plates were warm at best. I would go back and give them another try, the quality of the ingredients would justify another visit.

“Small place, decent food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

While the food was not bad - there was nothing that stood out as exceptional. It would be nice to have a bread assortment available for the table. Overall, the place was extremely small and conversation was impossible because of all the noise in the establishment.

“This is a gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

This restaurant is small yet perfectly formed.
The menu reflects a good Italian cuisine and in addition has an extensive list of mouth watering daily specials. The pricing is reasonable and the wine list whilst not extensive has some great entries and is not too expensive.
All in all - a great dining experience in the North End of Boston with plenty of atmosphere.
Highly recommended.
