We came for a very early dinner at 4:30 and we're seated immediately. The bread was generic sliced white bread - a bit disappointing. Our entrees were tasty enough - veal saltimbocca was tender and flavorful. The daily special of braised short rib ragout over pasta was also quite good. Service was excellent. Prices are moderate.

Small but worth it. Never had a bad meal. Recommend making reservations. Many great choices on meals and appetizers. Also, good selection of wine.

We stopped on our way to Salem. Our experience was different from some recent reviewers and less positive. This is a standard Italian red sauce type of place. While the haddock was good, the accompanying vegetables were not well prepared. The asparagus was nothing more than woody stalks. The Caesar salads were tasty but the calamari was greasy and below...

We eat here at least twice a year on our visits to relatives in Peabody. This place is consistent in excellent food, great service, a good time and excellent value over multiple years. First of all , this is an Italian restaurant so the tomato sauce has to be good or else! Here it is delicious, with a deep,rich flavour... More

Friends took us here while we were visiting; fantastic. We started with calamari that was cooked excellent, tender and you could not taste any grease it was very light, then we had Eggplant Rolatini; excellent. I was gonna go for veal parm but opted for Saltamboca, it was very good, the marsala was a little too sweet, but it was... More

Very good food! I got the chicken parm which was excellent. My husband had the seafood melody with pasta. The shrimp was huge and fresh! Staff was friendly. Took us a little bit to get the check, but otherwise they were quick.

I arrived after 8:30 on a Friday evening, dining by myself. The greeter asked if I wanted to sit at the bar, and I agreed. The bar turned out to be upstairs where there was a second dining area. Every employee I encountered greeted me and was friendly. I chose spaghetti Bolognese ($18.95). The large serving arrived within 10 minutes... More
