Low-key Monday night dinner with the ladies. Intimate setting with room, not loud & nice for date night or a group. Pino the owner was short-staffed and very humbly & enthusiastically waited on us. When they got a dish wrong, it served nicely as a free pasta appetizer while we didn’t wait long for the correction. If a item isn’t on the menu- you needn’t hesitate in asking - if they have the ingredients Pino is very willing to accommodate. The fish & chicken dishes were deliciouso! More

I have celiac. I had read the reviews about how great the gluten free food was and it was all true. We went in on a Saturday before a Bruins game at 4:30. The place was busy but they sat us right away for our reservation. We started with the fig salad. Wonderful. Had the mussel app. Also wonderful. And the gluten free sausage pizza. Very good!!! Loved the sausage. Didn't have any gluten response. Definitely will be returning. More

Anthony, our server, was wonderful! I can't remember the last time I ordered a bottle of wine and the server poured it. We ordered the arancini which my husband had never had but couldn't stop eating they were so good. The seafood with mildly spicy tomato sauce special was delicious and cooked perfectly which some restaurants couldn't accomplish with mussels, littlenecks, scallops, swordfish, and lobster and fresh thick spaghetti al dente. My husband was craving a pizza so ordered one for dinner off the lunch menu. As busy as the place became with a night Bruins game, Anthony was always there. Will return again probably when the roof top is open. More
