There aren't many good restaurants in Harvard Square, so those that are passable are popular and crowded, and this is one. The food is modern Italian, erring, however, in drenching foods in olive oil and garlic. Ok wine list.

The one star rating is only because I couldn't put in a question mark for its location. We were looking for the Italian restaurant by this name, which has good reviews, because we wanted a nice place that is walking distance from the MFA. We...More

We were looking forward to a nice dinner while in town for a concert. The menu looked so inviting and reviews were good. We were so disappointed to see that it had closed, just a simple note on the door.

Great food. Nice place. If you blink you will miss it. Not your regular pasta or pizza. This was a place with a small but really awesome menu.

Searched Yelp for a place that served Gnocchi, which is my husbands favorite. Specifically Gnocchi with white ( not red) sauce. Plump little potato Gnocchi with a Gorgonzola sauce sprinkled with walnuts. Yes, it was as yummy as it sounds. The grilled pork chop was...More

Cute little unassuming spot for authentic Tuscan cuisine. They had a lengthy wine list for which our server was very helpful. We made some very heavy choices - a very flavorful sausage bruscetta, apparel let bolognese, hubby had linguini with cod. Everything delicious.

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
