We went here for the New Year's Eve dinner. We had a very late reservation. We got the 3 course dinner. The food was worth every penny. They also served complimentary Prosecco toast at the midnight. Service was great too. I am definitely going back.

This was an outstanding restaurant, with superb food, lovely ambience, and excellent cocktails. It is small, but a comfortable and well appointed dining room. The only area that could bear improvement is the service. The service is friendly and attentive from the moment of arrival. However, at times it is a little too attentive, and, as a customer, I felt a little over-serviced. A little more time between courses would also be appreciated.
However, overall, this was an excellent restaurant, which I would happily recommend to friends.

Absolute neighborhood gem. Great Italian variations on ubiquitous, touristy, "red sauce" joints of the nearby North End.
Romantic, quiet, well prepared, fresh ingredients.

Adorable little restaurant with amazing food. We had wanted to do the full 3 courses but ended up way too full for dinner. Definitely got a reservation here as it is small with no bar to have a drink while you wait
