Happened upon this gem while visiting the area. From start to finish (hostess, server, owner who checked on us), it was a perfect evening. Crab cakes, lobster bisque, truffle fries and Carmine''s Cavatelli were all delicious. This will become a "must visit" when I am...More

Our waitress Emma was very knowledgeable on the items we asked about and very nice and friendly. My wife had the haddock special, I had gnocchi and shrimp dinner and both were delishous. Salted caramel cheese topped it all off.

This was our best meal on our Road Trip and Emma (Waitress) was awesome. They have gluten free options and were very accommodating and made my dinner to order and kept it gluten free.

It might be the best Italian restaurant in Watertown. But if you are not a local and you are used to good Italian food (like myself from NYC) this is average at best. Service is cordial but inefficient. Order the bruschetta appetizer (was ok) had...More

Glad you have better restaurants in NYC, but we are not located in NYC and therefore have a different menu based on our location here in Watertown. We make our sausage in house which very few if I dare say no-one does, and we do...More
