Waiter forgot my order (despite it being his recommendation), brought the wrong meal, and then treated me rudely from then on. The pork was overcooked and the sauce ridiculously sweet. I rarely leave bad reviews, but honestly I was hoping for much better.

While this restaurant was highly recommended, we were disappointed. We visited the restaurant for an early dinner. The service was good but the food was very average. The veal parmigiana and the pasta marinara dishes we ordered were bland - maybe the other entrees are...More

We enjoyed a late afternoon lunch here. We were the only diners in at the time. Bianca was our server, she was very helpful, funny and friendly. Our food was good, served fresh and hot. The bread and oil was delicious!

This place came recommended from a local we met while in Boston. It's small and there is usually a wait, we went in the middle of the afternoon and had no wait. Food was amazing. We had bruschetta and the meatball as appetizers, definitely recommend....More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

You can review their menu online. I have mild lactose intolerance and found a number of dishes that would work for me. I chose the chicken piccata and loved it!
