    Very crowded and chaotic inside. The tables are too close together. They need more servers. There was 1 or 2 servers for about 20 tables. Main entree tasted good. The sausage appetizer didn’t taste good.

    Had a great dinner here on NYE. The host and server were both attentive and polite, checking in on us appropriately. Ordered the meatballs, chicken parm, and the lobster ravioli. All of it was delicious! Chicken parm was hot and crispy and the lobster ravioli had large lobster chunks both on top and inside. Will definitely come back!

    Quaint little place off the beaten path in North End. Service was awesome! We are new to Massachusetts and are exploring all the restaurants in North End so far, Libertine is my hubby’s favorite sauce and meatballs!

    Had eaten at different restaurants in the North End for the last 3 nights. Very few restaurants available for 4 on busy Saturday night, this one had the best reviews. All 4 of us agreed, this was the least preferred food of the trip. Simply not good: from a small menu, a poor drink/wine selection, small portion sizes, to the actual taste/after-taste of the food (or lack thereof). So many better restaurants in the area. Would never go back. Meatball app, mushroom side, lobster ravioli, pappardelle bolognese, 1 beer - over $100. Do yourself a favor and book somewhere else.

    Chose this place for my best friends birthday dinner. Not bad, just not what I expected for a north end restaurant. The menu had a lot of different dishes and I was aiming more for Italian. We got the chicken parm and it was to die for! Chicken was super tender. The ambiance is noisy, we couldn’t hear each other speak much. The waiter was very professional and friendly. The tables are tiny and somewhat crammed. Overall 6/10 for me. My friend loved it and gave it a 8/10! Just depends what kind of vibe you’re looking for!

The staff was very attentive and really took the time to be sure we had everything we needed. I would go back in an instant. Thank you for a great evening!

    Susana went above and beyond for us during our service today. If she didn’t know the answer to our questions she went and asked the chef and came back with the answers straight away. Excellent service, Ample portions, Flavors were delicious for the pasta and sauce, everything was cooked fresh to order as well. Staff were polite and courteous to us and very attentive. Will definitely be back to dine again!!

    Positives first, the service was good and friendly. The food came out quickly. We were in and out in an hour. Onto the short comings, it was incredibly loud. We are fairly young and it was still too loud for us. We couldn’t talk to each other. The tables were on top of each other too which was a huge turnoff. The food was just ok. The calamari just tasted like fried breadcrumbs. The bread on the table was not great. Our entrees were better than the app but it seemed either flavor was non existent or way too much. Again very nice staff, nice look to the restaurant but wasn’t for us.

    The service here was awful. First, the waitress forgot to bring my husbands drink, then she gave incorrect details about the special - which I wouldn’t have ordered had I known how it was really prepared. She never checked on our table and 45 minutes later I inquired about our salads which were sitting up at the kitchen prep area for 20’mins then brought out with our meals. She insisted that it was up to us to tell her we wanted our salad ahead of our main meal. When my meal came there was 1/2 lobster tail overcooked sitting on top of rice without the scallops the waitress said they came with. We were told it was a communication error but I would not have ordered the dish otherwise. We would not dine here again.

    Went with three friends for a Thursday night dinner was slightly concerned as the restaurant was EMPTY at 7pm on a Thursday which is abnormal for the north end. Bread tasted store bought tbh but apps and entrees were fantastic and hot! Overall our waitress was very attentive and funny, unsure if I’d go back given all the options but definitely good experience!

    Just tried this place as I heard it is under new ownership I’m so happy we did. Our sever Susana was super friendly as was the hostess. Our octopus was melt in your mouth delicious. I tried one of the Portuguese specials (shrimp Mozambique) and my friend had the bolognese- both were amazing. Definitely will be back to try other menu items soon.

    We called to see if we could get in earlier, thankfully we did because they told us that we didn’t have a reservation. We had booked the reservation on OpenTable 2 hours before we wanted, got the confirmation email and everything and they said we didn’t have a reservation. we tried giving them the confirmation number and they wouldn’t take it and being rude/ talking back and extremely unaccommodating and was a very frustrating experience. We didn’t even get to go since they said they were all booked up.

    Absolutely awful! Had to walk out on the meal. In over an hour we were only served one drink and one appetizer. The owner of the restaurant, when we asked where our food was just yelled at us to calm down. That’s horribly unacceptable! The waitress was very nice and apologized for the owners rudeness. I would never go back there!

    Food was delicious! Restaurant was very loud and lights were shockingly bright. It was a busy Friday night and there was a bachelorette party nearby, so this certainly contributed to our experience. Service was good, it took unusually long for one of our diners to get her wine but otherwise no complaints.

    Where do I begin? The service, specifically Bianca was nonexistent except to refill the water glasses 3 times when they clearly did not require refilling. It was quite obvious that we were forgotten. My party was seated for at least 30 minutes before we even ordered. Upon ordering we asked for bread, even that took 20 minutes to arrive at our table. The meatball appetizer was mediocre at best. After being seated for over an hour our food that we had been savoring for came and was low grade dog food. I’ve had better food at the baseball game. The pasta was undercooked. The veal had a leathery taste and the chicken parm was slop. The food was bland. I can say with a certainty that the prices are much higher than necessary and there was no value for my money. To recap the service was awful, the food was abysmal, and the evening was ruined. Libertine would be best avoided at all costs. Should have done my homework before making the reservation.

    Food was SUPER bland. Almost like they ran out of seasoning in the kitchen. I had the mushroom tagliatelle which would've been ok with some fresh grated parmesan or some salt. My wife's cheese ravioli and meatball both tasted frozen, and the cheese curds we had for our app were bland as all get out. Also, waiter was SUPER akward, didnt really know what she was doing and it wasn't until we got our bill that they dont give free refills on fountain beverages because "they have to pay for the carbonation." I wouldn't have minded if we were told when we asked for two refills. Wont be returning.

    For a last minute reservation, Libertine did the job. It's a fun modern-style Italian place in a relatively older part of Boston. The food was good. Just be wary when getting pasta dishes. There is a LOT of sauce.

    Service was so bad. We asked for more bread as there were 7 of us and had recieved about 4 small pieces of bread. The waitress told us that they did not have much bread left!! This is an Italian restaurant at 5 pm. the Brussels sprouts were hard as a rock. Waitress brought over dessert before even clearing our dinner plates. I could go on and on.
