We had dinner here for Mother's Day. The atmosphere is wonderful. In warmer weather a great outside dining area. The food was good. Unfortunatley the service was sub par. We had pasta and chicken marsala that was quite good. The breat is wonderful.

Good restaurant, very convenient in the hotel. Food was fresh and delicious. I had mixed seafood dish and my spouse had pasta. Both dishes were great. Would definitely go again.

That's how delicious everything was. The roasted beet dish and the lobster pasta... heart heart heart. There were some lovely red wines as well. If we lived in Boston, we'd be regulars. Lovely alfresco deck overlooking the river.

Had the bolognese and the carbonara. Both were very good, a bit rich on the carbonara, but what do you expect with that dish? Good eats.

Attended a wedding rehearsal dinner. Appetizers were good (especially the ricotta ravioli) but wasn't overly impressed with the entrees - hanger steak had no flavor, acqua pazza was disappointing. Waiter was very nice & friendly.

Our drinks took 20 minutes and the place was not full. They did not have Seagrams or a cold glass for beer. Appetizers were so so. We didn't stay for dinner as planned. That whole experience took over an hour.
