About the restaurant
Trattoria Il Panino is the kind of place that one would expect to find along the Amalfi Coast. It is a warm, friendly, unpretentious and a food-focused environment. From the casual and positive energy of the atmosphere and waitstaff, to the serious and professional energy of the kitchen, the front
and back of the house form a desirable marriage. The entrance on 260 Hanover street has a full liquor license.

About the restaurant
Located at 40 Brattle Street in Harvard Square, Alden & Harlow serves thoughtfully sourced, honest American food in a subterranean, modern and comfortable space. Replicating the style of cooking he does for family and friends in his home kitchen, Chef Michael Scelfo prepares humble, unpretentious food that honors tradition of place in its quality. It's how he connects with anyone who joins them at their table.

While reservations are strongly suggested, we also save a portion of the dining room and bar for walk-ins in the event that your request cannot be accommodated. So please, come on in!

Parties of more than 8, please call to make a reservation.

Enjoyed dining here. Had an excellent server! Great cocktails and drinks. Before you go, you must know this is a tapas/small plate restaurant. So you will need to order 3-5 plates (5 plates if you are hungry) of food to share. I didn’t know that in advance and I still had a great meal. I enjoyed the chicken fried rabbit, pork belly with grits and a pancha steak dish. Plus got the plum cake. Yum! The crimson sun cocktail is so amazing! Definitely give this place a try and explore the various dishes.

This Boston fixture, housed in a building dating back to Pre-Revolutionary days, started serving food in 1826 and has continued ever since with the stalls and oyster bar, where Daniel Webster was a constant customer, in their original positions.

I came in for lunch and everyone was so friendly! Host, servers, bussers. Everything was great - the clam chowder, calamari, and lobster roll are essentials.
