    Nice ambience, with comfortable and spacious seating. Delicious food and drinks, with a creative combination of ingredients. Pasta was cooked al dente and seafood was fresh, great texture. I would gladly repeat.

    Reeervation for 2 at 5pm. I was late. They were very gracious allowing my daughter to sit at our table while waiting for me. We had the special dine out week menu- everything was fantastic. My daughter loved her pasta and seafood dish- she’s gluten free and they accommodated her allergies with no hesitation. Server and service were excellent. Never felt rushed, water always full and just very pleasant. I am coming back next week just for the grilled peach appetizer and lemon and olive oil cake!

    We came here for Boston Dining Week and it was great. 3 courses for $36. We shared the meatballs and a bruschetta for appetizer, chicken Milanese and Bolognese for mains, and the lemon olive oil and grilled plums for dessert. It was fantastic! It was a hot day, but we sat outside and it was nice still in the shade.

    If you are in a rush then this is your spot. But look elsewhere if you want a leisurely meal. We had 3 courses plus coffee and dessert and were done in just over an hour. And perhaps this is known - both tables next to us asked for the check half way through their main course. Too bad because the food was reasonable but we were never able to enjoy it as the next course arrived before the current one was done.

    Everything we ordered was so flavorful and delicious. I highly recommend the whole branzino. It came with a delicious salad and really balanced the meal. It is one of the best I’ve had in the city. Our server was attentive and overall we had a great time. 10/10

    We had made reservations so we could eat prior to attending a concert at Fenway and although we ended up arriving an hour early it wasn’t busy and they were happy to accommodate us. We were greeted right away and our waiter was very friendly. The food was good. It was a great experience all around. We would definitely go back. And it was a min easy 5-10 min walk to Fenway.

    We were visiting Boston and looking for a good Italian restaurant near our apartment that was casual but high quality. They were very busy on a Friday evening so I definitely recommend getting a reservation. Our food was excellent. We shared baked clams. My son ordered the bolognese pasta but subbed spaghetti as the type of pasta. I ordered the chicken Milanese; the arugula salad that comes with it was excellent. We split limoncello cake for dessert. Excellent dinner and very reasonably priced. Service was friendly and attentive.

    We were a group of 6 who had not seen each other in a very long time, so we wanted a place where we could talk that was not stuffy. Bar 'Cino fit the bill. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The staff was attentive and friendly, but let us sit around for quite a while. We did not feel crowded or rushed. I would certainly return!

    I brought my friends from out of town here and the host/waitress was unbelievably rude. She took one look at us and said “will you be getting anything other than water.” I live in the north end and the service, quality of Italian food is much higher.

    A must go to! Made a reservation for an early evening anniversary dinner before a concert at Fenway. Short walk from staying at hotel near Fenway. Outdoor space was very nice. The food was incredible. The bruschetta was absolutely delicious. Best fresh pasta we’ve had since being in Italy! Our drinks were unique and so yummy. Highly recommend La Pina. Try this place!

    convenient brookline neighborhood location. very difficult to park. T repairs and construction. Inviting decor. great large square bar. Bartender Derrick.... aloof, inattentive, disinterested. never checked up on us. Seems like he was doing us a favor. That's no way to earn nice tips. Food mediocre. Calamari was mushy and tasteless. Would not rush to return here. Staff needs some educating !!!
