We are foodies, and we really enjoyed the tasting experience here. We got dumped early by a bad Uber driver, got soaked in the rain, but they made up for the bad start to the evening. They have a passion for food and we got to see it and taste it. More

We each had the steamed Lobster and they were delicious. However, the crab stuffing is NOT worth the extra cost. The clam chowder was full of clams and superb. The highlight of the meal which we almost missed was the Boston Cream Pie which they have recreated into what my New England wife says is "the best I’ve ever had “. When the chowder came out too cold, our charming waitress immediately replaced our half-eaten cups with nice hot ones. The service was relaxed but attentive. In short the perfect birthday dinner for Ina and a great start to our New England vacation. Don’t miss this place. More

Our first visit, based on friend’s’ recommendations, and it was awesome! The food was well prepared, with attention to requests, especially food allergies. The shrimp cocktail was delicious. The salad was somewhat disappointing, but the filet mignon and scallops were outstanding. The asparagus were steamed, as requested, but over cooked. The pasta with fresh tomato sauce was equivalent to what we had in Rome - it was that good. The vibe was hip and buzzing and lots of fun. Wine list was great. Our server was very busy, but the management helped, and were outstanding. We will definitely be back! More

Beautiful space with high ceilings and plenty of windows to bring in light, which reflects the light and seasonal lunchtime menu. Service was attentive, though the food delivery was a bit uneven: one salad was delayed and it took many trips to fully serve our party of 7, but that may be a function of a small kitchen/no trays. Our food was subtly seasoned; some of our party expected more kick from menu items that included jalepenos. On the other hand, a simple addition of anise to peaches in a seasonal salad was a creative and appropriately warming touch for mid-autumn. The warm hearth bread with honey butter was delicious!

So, so busy! Glad we had reservations. Once seated we were nicely told that the kitchen was backed up and there was a 30 minute hold on food. If we were in a rush it would be an issue but we just wanted to stay and chat. Food was fantastic though and came under 30 min. Would definitely recommend, but only with reservations. More

We had a nice meal, but I expected more. They are pretty small plates of food. My entire plate of the sea bass meal was overly salty. My son had the brick chicken, which was good, but not great. His girlfriend really enjoyed her Coq au Vin- which probably had the most food with the meal. My husband enjoyed the salmon, but, again, not that special. It took a while to get our main dishes, but our server was attentive and nice. I would not go back with so many Boston options. More

Coming from NH, we don’t get into Boston to dine as often as we like. Last spring we traveled specifically to Eataly for a meal; unfortunately things didn’t work out when we arrived for our reservation. A young woman finally approached us and after letting us know the restaurant we reserved didn’t open at 11, and the truffles we were looking for were not available, she escorted us to La Pizza & La Pasta where we had a lovely lunch. This trip we had two of our family with us. When we entered, we thought we recognized the manager, she did remember us. She also remembered we had looked for truffles and let us know they had a limited supply available for lunch (we ordered two portions, they were perfect). We had an absolutely wonderful meal. The service was excellent, our server was attentive without being overly present. He let us know that our meals were all prepared fresh, but from different kitchens so they might not all come together (this ended up no issue), and he handled all our requests without delay. All of our food was wonderful. This is the type of place I would highly recommend to friends. Vanya and the entire crew made the end of our anniversary perfect. Thank you so much. (p.s. We have favorites in the North End, this rivals them, and parking is easier (they validate in Eataly).) More
