Bad staff and horrible food. The free couvert was a slept bread with airplane butter. Ordered a carbonara past and for my surprise: no egg on it! First time I see that in my life. The dish came with "1 liter" of white sauce, no...More

Food was hearty and huge portions. Every time we walked by this place was hopping. Noisy, upbeat vibe. A good evening out in Beacon Hill

My son and I had a lovely meal here. It included linguine with clam sauce and swordfish pizziola. Both dishes were delicious and moderately priced. Portions were large, and service was fine. This is a definite winner in my book.

Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
