I have had several meals at Bel Ari, both lunch and dinner, and have been wowed up the upscale, modern-style Italian food from a very thin veal scallopine topped with an arugula salad to a fantastic swordfish puttanesca. The pizzas are great too. I highly recommend it for business dinners as well - they have a nice back room.

A great new find in Boston. The food was great. My only suggestion is they not tell people their kitchen is closing, as it can feel a little rushed for dessert. Better not saying anything and service the people already there. Beyond that, superb. Highly recommended.

Food was good but service was really slow. The waiter was impossible to flag down.

The food was great but the way for the food took long and my server had a very rude attitude

We went on a Wednesday night, so it was very quiet. The staff was excellent - friendly, knew the menu, stayed on top of getting us more water and wine, etc. The food was perfectly respectable, but nothing really stood out and made we want to try more. Overall, it's a decent Italian restaurant with pretty standard fare.

Food was excellent!! fried calamari was delicious, salad choices with apples, beets or peaches were very fresh, the apple salad was very good. And the pasta was excellent!! No room for dessert ,too full. But the Super Tuscan by the glass was a nice treat- usually only by the bottle. Will surely go back soon. And they are correct- from someone who has dined in the North End for 30 years- you can have an Authentic Italian Meal that is not in the North End.

Very nice ambience, drinks were decent. Can't say the food was that special, given how many good Italian restaurants there are in the North End.

The former Sorriso has been refreshed and the new look and menu is an improvement over its predecessor. It's a fine place to have lunch if you are nearby. The menu had some nice dishes on it, the service was friendly, and my bolognese was decent. It's not a destination restaurant but comfortable and convenient to the financial district.

Food was tasty but not great. We ordered the veal bolognese and the risotto with vegetables. Service was good.

They could not find my OpenTable reservation after I received both a confirmation email as well as a PHONE CALL from the restaurant itself the morning of my planned lunch reservation. Not sure where the disconnect was. Luckily, they had openings for lunch anyways so there was no impact. I just thought it was bad form.

nice flavors and presentation. friendly server who messed up our orders but had a smile on her face. a nice lunch choice for a simple, reasonably-priced lunch in the Financial District
