We had a nice dinner with the family. The chicken picata was delicious. My choice of pasta was penne and it was cooked perfectly. The desert cart had so many choices. Great experience.

Extensive menu with many traditional dishes. Every night there is a homemade pasta option (which is consistently excellent). The decor is a bit loud and dated but the place remains a good value.

It's time to update. The food is good, not special. Most desserts come from Modern Pastry in the North End of Boston. It was very quiet, and good for conversation.
