We ate here the other day and the meal was terrific. The setting is quite elegant but not overly formal. Tables are well spaced. We hit traffic and were 30 minutes late. We called ahead but they were very courteous. The food is exceedingly good....More

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

It's too bad they are not a part of Open Table reservations. Call when you get into town. The North end is a close 15 minute walk from that area for more choices of Italian foods.
