LoveItalianpasta (New England)
5.0  Dined 3 days ago

Went a few years ago and loved it then. Have had a hard time getting back there because it's tough to get a reservation but I think this place is worth it. Took a friend (who is vegetarian) for her birthday and at first glance the menu didn't offer that many vegetarian dishes. But when we asked the waitperson, many items could be prepared without meat so my friend was more than satisfied with the choice. We each had a nice glass of wine and shared a bean puree appetizer that was beautifully prepared and luscious, served with grilled homemade bread. We each had a pasta dish, I the pappardelle and she the agnolotti and they both were excellent. Topped this off with the chocolate terrine - again a shared dessert, and just terrific. Will hunt for reservations and get them when I can.

The four of us ordered the 5-course tasting menu to celebrate a birthday. We had a fantastic evening, and our dinner was absolutely fabulous! Thank you, Giulia!

Pretty overrated. Food was B/B+, service friendly but unsophisticated and somewhat juvenile. Average value for the price, if you are looking to explore Boston fine dining try others first.

Did not appreciate a pre fix menu without options to choose from the main menu. Wish we had known ahead of time. Very expensive ! I love this place but will not be going on special occasions again if forced to order from a fixed high priced menu.

The flounder really should have been deboned. The fish was very large and dealing with the bones was awkward and made a mess of the dish such that the presentation was compromised.

The board head was excellent.

Cumulatively, the dishes were all very rich, and I wish the waitress had steered us to some lighter fare

Good italian food, but I don't understand the hype. It's good but not better than many other Cambridge restaurants. Yet, I had to reserve about 30 days in advance to be sure we got a seat. crazy.

This restaurant was at 90% capacity on a Monday night, a sign of a loyal clientele.
