I still cant believe how amazing and authentic this Italian food is. Not only you get to eat very fresh and delicious food, but you will be surprised by the bill. I had crab and shrimp tortellini with fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil sauce. my plate costed me $7.95
We will be going back for lunch tomorrow again. You have to try it.

This is an authentic little Italian deli/takeout/restaurant with wonderful food. It was filled w/locals, some of whom did not speak English at all, and ordered in Italian. They have wonderful deli salads and pasta dishes, as well as desserts. Also, specials of the day on pasta, etc. for only $5.00.

I had pasta w/chicken and red sauce. The sauce was wonderful! It was just crushed tomatoes, garlic, spices, and olive oil, so it was light and delicious.

There is no service. You just line up at the counter, place your order, then they call you when it is ready.

I highly recommend eating lunch or dinner here. But, look for it, as it is a pretty narrow storefront on the corner.

Skip all the "chain" restaurants on Harvard St., and walk a little further down to find really good food here.

One of the reviews on Yelp for this place said, "Their carbonara is crack." I would say any of the food is that addictive because it is SO good.

This little corner Italian restaurant feels more like a take out/ grocery store. The meals are inexpensive and the menu extensive. Non existent service , would probably be better as take out. Food was served barely warm - it was okay but would never go back. Also no restrooms for customers?

This place is wonderful on so many levels. It is pretty easy to miss so make sure you're looking for it as you stroll down Harvard Street! It's an authentic little Italian joint run by some guys who are straight from Italy. They have deals on certain days where you can mix and match pastas and sauces for just $5! The serving size is definitely plenty and all their sauces and choices are great. I highly recommend their homemade spinach gnocchi, it's incredible and they make it themselves. It is so fresh that I still couldn't believe it with every bite.

Just randomly popped in here for lunch today and was delighted to find good value, authentic simple Italian cooking close to my new apartment. The produce for sale is a nice bonus too. Reminds me of a little place at home I thought I would miss terribly... maybe not!
