Tonight I ordered the Carbonara oysters made with guanciale. They were served in the oyster shell atop a sea salt mound. Amazing presentation!
There was plenty of succulence that I drizzled over bread. Delicious!
The Orecchiette did not disappoint! It was prepared with Italian sausage with a hint of chili flake. Definitely worth the carb load!

We enjoyed the outdoor seating overlooking the marina. The background music okay, not too loud. The (lunch) menu was a bit more limited than we expected. Had hoped for some good old Italian pasta dishes like spaghetti and sausage, though the gnocchi was tasty. Would have liked to have seen a steak offered, other than with the rice bowl, which was not really a rice bowl. The staff did a couple of odd things, like squeezing between our table and the fence to open up the fire pit, which they didn't even light. There was lots of room if they went around. The server was pleasant. They have the location and the skill to make a delicious dish. Maybe just a tweak more of customer service would be nice. I would go back again on a nice day as the outside area is very nice.

Beautiful place, great food, excellent service. We had a wonderful dinner for four and enjoyed it thoroughly.
The Cotuit oysters for starters were fresh and delicious, and we also enjoyed the roasted beet salad. For mains I had the short ribs which were absolutely fabulous, falling apart tender with a deeply flavored brown sugar and balsamic gravy, they totally lived up to my admittedly very high expectations for short ribs. The small downside was that they were served with a cold bland popover on the side and a tasteless creme fraiche that theoretically had horseradish in it but was also tasteless. The only other small note is that the bread served before dinner was cold and kind of chewy rather than warm and crusty.
Other very good main dishes in our party included the potato-crusted cod and the pumpkin ravioli with grilled shrimp. My husband had mussels as his main course, beautifully flavored with roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes and red pepper flakes, enjoyed them thoroughly. We shared the affogato for dessert which was excellent except I would have liked a little more fudge (who wouldn’t?)
Service was really excellent - when we arrived we asked if anything could be done to reduce the cold air blowing on us from the ceiling vents and our server Tony immediately adjusted the air conditioning for us. He was friendly, unobtrusive, and efficient throughout.
The place has a beautiful sleek but warm vibe, nicely lighted. There is also patio seating with a view of the marina.
Altogether a very nice experience, on the expensive side but well worth it. Would definitely recommend!

Simply outstanding. This is a favorite place of mine because it is always good. The food here is as good as any in town and the atmosphere is far better than most. Perhaps it just that the menu, the service, the atmosphere and the food here all appeal to me but I believe this is one of the best restaurants in the Boston area.

Calamari was excellent and food was great. Felt over dressed seeing other families. Didn't think this was a restaurant that allowed lower dress requirements. Overall the food was excellent and will be back again knowing the dress requirements are not an issue.

We were celebrating our daughter’s birthday. Food was great but root vegetables were undercooked and meatball starter was a tease. Otherwise, the experience was great!

Two of three in our party were pleased. One had the Mediterranean Salad with salmon which, for what was presented, was overpriced. The salad , which consisted of overdressed cucumber, tomato, and onion, had an unpleasant flavor. The piece of salmon was small and undercooked. The server should have asked to what degree it should have been cooked. Coffee was luke warm, and the creme brûlée had a rather unappetizing coat of black substance at the bottom of the ramekin.

The overall experience was great, the food was good but the value I thought was pretty poor. I ordered a salad and added some tenderloin and I got probably 2 ounces and it was $17 for the add-on. A flavor was good but the value wasn’t there. The overall experience was good we sat outside so the ambience was awesome with the wind. If I go back I will order a full meal and check the value of that but the out on the salad was a big disappointment

Food was not good. The only good thing was the bread and I was really looking forward to our evening. Shrimp was rubbery and salty. I must comment that Caesar salad was the only part of the meal that was descent.

The food was fantastic, and the view is beautiful. We don’t eat large meals so my friend and I split the meatball appetizer and swordfish entree. The kitchen split it for us and it was plenty! A wonderful night out!

Great food & drinks & great service. My main disappointment is that they wouldn’t sit my son & I, until my husband arrived. When I asked why, they said it was because our table wasn’t ready. The restaurant was empty & every table was set, so this was an obvious lie. I was there with my 4 year old & I wanted to get him settled, before my husband arrived. I do not see what the harm is to have us sit down before my husband arrives, especially is a quiet restaurant.

Very good overall, little loud because of the place across the way. A few outdoor heaters weren’t working and had a little bit of the food spilled on me and nothing was said. Overall love the food just wish I got a quick sorry for spiking food on me! And a little more outdoor heat.

Date night was perfect. We sat outside by the fire and were warm and toasty. Dinner was delish from oysters, arugula and fig salad, pasta and salmon and short ribs. All was amazing. Our waitress was excellent too stopping by and topping off drinks and checking on out meal.

Our party was seated at an outdoor table and asked to move. We were told that the table we requested was being held for someone else. Wish I’d known I could request a specific table when I booked the reservation. Will do so in the future.

Service was slow. Only 2-3 servers. They had 2 floor mangers and 3 hostesses that did very little to help out the short staff waitress. We sat down and waited 15 min until we went over to one of the mangers to get some water. I don’t blame the poor waitress trying to do their best to keep up. I’m disappointed in the managers and hostess that didn’t roll up their sleeves and help out the staff.
