The quality of the food and service does not match the cost. I had the salmon with a balsamic sauce. The sauce overpowered the salmon rather than complement it. The service was poor. I always feel that one of the pluses of eating at a pricey restaurant is to experience a sauce or type of preparation that is unique. Save... More

Lunch with family and the food could not have been better. Was visiting from Florida for Thankgiving and was really happy to have Real Italian again. The gravy was perfection and the calamari melted in your mouth. We get up 2 or 3 times a year and this will be a must stop each time.

Was in town with family for NE Patriots game. Dinner was great. Food was authentic Italian and huge portions. It's a bit pricey. Greeted at the door and were sitted within 5 minutes. It was after 8 on a Saturday night and the place was quite full. Great service from our waiter, who was helpful and very pleasant.

This place used to be very good but the food is "so-so" and the service is crappy. Most of the staff hang at the bar, talk and carry-on while you sit in the dining room and wait for service. May be "okay" for lunch but not recommended for dinner. 👎

We went for Valentine's dinner, and the service and food were excellent. A couple months later, we received a gift certificate from them in the mail. We haven't gotten back yet, but we are looking forward to eating there again soon.

Wonderful food, great staff - if I lived closer I would eat here every weekend. You must make a reservation because the restaurant is always packed.

A group of us were regulars but stopped going after experiencing poor service. Too many excellent choices in the area like Dolce Novita (now Bistro 147), Vesta, Bazzarelli's and Sagovia ... all are top notch, friendly and polite!

The outside is very cute. A bit disconcerting to have the owner/manager sitting outside only to walk us in! To be fair the restaurant was very slow. The interior is old fashioned bordering on dated. The service was great. Weird though when I ordered a coke/Pepsi - I was given an RC cola with no heads up! Yuck! The ravioli... More
