    This is such a shame because it used to be one of my favorites. We had 3 mains and 2 appetizers. Arancini was flavorless, coco tagliatelle was bitter to the point of inedible. Other dishes were base, all expensive. Server didn’t seem like he wanted to be there or us to be there. At least we were on Charles St. so it was pretty and the wine was good. If you’re dying to go, just get cocktails or wine.

    We were three people, one regular and two from afar. We had 3 app's: grilled asparagus—just right; veal parmigiana—three then pieces of lightly breaded veal with delightfully melted cheese, surprisingly light and authentic flavor, and mixed olives—also both mixed and extra flavor one had perfectly cooked salmon over light bulgar, fresh and yet delicious, one herb marinated hanger steak, and one chicken saltimbocca—each of us enjoyed our entrées and we had one tiny crunchy creamy cannoli, and two other well enjoyed desserts. we were greeted warmly and served carefully and with a warm feeling of being well welcomed. it was a successful dinner and a perfect evening.

    My wife and I went there for dinner. We chose outdoor seating. They seemed to disorganized and it was bit slow service. Qulity of food was just ok for the menu price. If we go back to the area we will choose different italian place.

    The menu is full of mostly unusual sounding dishes, and the diner not used to choosing from unfamiliar dishes might be uncomfortable, however the food is delicious and nicely presented. Small servings are available, which makes the meal more affordable. (Plus one doesn’t have to leave overstuffed or carrying leftovers.). Desserts are the best! We enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere for a Saturday night dinner visit.

    My cousin was visiting from out of town so I brought her here. They stuck us in the back room where it was completed separated from the fun ambience up front. Totally changed the experience.

    Hostess was not pleasant and had to wait 10 minutes before waiter approached us for our drink order. In spite of rocky beginning, food was very good - portions a little on the small side if that matters to you. Zucchini carpaccio and chicken saltimbocca were excellent. My husband had hangar steak which he enjoyed. Food is always good here.

    We had been traveling so we arrived hungry and tired. We explained our situation to a waiter who recommended the eggplant as an appetizer and put in the order right away as we looked at the menu and wine list. Service. Food. House wine. All great. Sitting outside on Charles Street was lively and fun.

    We enjoyed another awesome dinner at Bin 26. They just updated the menu with some really nice new summer items, but they’ve kept enough of the staples that it’s a nice mix of new dishes and old favorites. The service is as good as it gets! A woman knocked over an entire bottle of wine near us, during primetime on a Saturday, which is obviously a stressful situation, and they handled it with class, quickly making it look like it never happened. Grace under fire for sure. Even with that going on, the servers didn’t miss a beat.

    Went there last night for the first time and was blown away. I don't know what I liked more - their superb wine leather-bound book, their delicious food, their incredible service or the intimacy (vibe) of the restaurant. I am not a wine connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination but I was impressed by the sommelier's knowledge and presentation. We spoke with the owners and they could not have been more hospitable. Already made a reservation to go back for brunch in one month.

    Bin 26 has an interesting wine list, and I liked that you could do small pours of wine. I thought the food was so-so, and I felt it could have done with some seasoning, salt & pepper on the table (none), and an offer of Parmesan (none). If I were to go again, I'd only go to the bar for the wine.

    There are so many unattractive things I do not know where to start but let me start with what one goes to a restaurant for…. Food. This restaurant seems to have a bloated image of itself by charging high prices for what are actually kids meals…. We spent almost $100 and left hungry. We went to another establishment for a snack just after we left here. They do not feel like they should serve dinner roles or something with there tiny meals… most restaurants would do that or include a salad so patrons at least feel like they had a good portion. The quality of the food was fine but, again, not special enough to justify the cost. I was taken back by the $6. 00 soda bottles. I noticed another commentary about noise…. That would have a lot to do with the concrete floors that increase sound ….. as well as the cramped space. Bathrooms had no soap. The service was friendly but had a “matter of fact” mannerism and we sat for 15 minutes after the meal was done to check out and ended up walking out without the receipt we asked for as it was obvious she was not coming back … In short, there are A LOT. Of placesI would go before this place…. Don’t go if your hungry, don’t go if you have anywhere to get to after, bring your own cleaning supplies and ear plugs….. well …. Let’s just be totally honest… Just doing go,!!!

    The food was absolutely delicious. The problem was with the service overall (and nothing related to the waitress. She actually did her job). I ordered a bottle of wine from the cellar and it took just too long … After abou 20 minutes (my friends already finishing their first glass) I was weirdly offered another wine “while they still look for the bottle in the cellar”. I didn’t accept that and asked for a few more minutes with the wine list. But the whole interaction was strange. We’re they offering another bottle? A glass while I wait? Was that free? Anyway: after about more 10 minutes I was told they didn’t find the bottle and I chose another one. When the food arrived, it was really great. But they advise a nice wine list so I would not have expected to have my first glass 35-40 minutes after ordering it. I still recommend for the food but I can’t possibly give more than 3 stars for this time.

    What a gem! We loved the small, cozy, and fun atmosphere and friendly waitstaff. My husband even met and chatted with the owner when we were preparing to leave. We started with the mixed greens salad and then enjoyed the crispy duck leg confit, mussels, and cocoa tagliatelle. All were absolutely delicious, but the duck was over the top!! We were there on a busy Friday night, but never felt rushed. We will return!

    Absolutely loved the prosciutto wrapped pears and cocoa mushroom tagliatelle! Great wine selections. Not too loud like many other restaurants in Boston, so it’s perfect for a date or catch up with your girlfriends because you can actually hear each other talking. Classy ambiance with nice music. The only downside is the food is quite small portions for what you pay. For example we got two small arancini balls for $10 and 2 pieces of prosciutto wrapped pears for $16. But it was delicious so if you come in with the mindset of tapas and order a bunch of things, you’ll be ok! Overall, I’ve been here many times since I live within walking distance, and it’s a place I constantly recommend for a date. One of my local favorites.
