He knew the menu and wine list extensively, gave great recommendations, was attentive, and a true professional. The food came out on time. We asked to share a dish, and on a very busy night, they took the time to split the dish for us. We ordered a few Appetizers and they brought them out at a good pace so that we were not overwhelmed. The main meals were rich in flavor and felt very much like an Italian grandma made them in them in the back for us. Made me feel like I was in Italy again. I would absolutely, and have already, recommend this restaurant. I’m jealous of your first time here, as ours was one of the best I’ve had in the North End, and I’m a frequent visitor.

The food was okay but very small portions and I found it to be very rich. I had the Duck Breast which I enjoyed for the most part, but had hoped the accompanying sides (creamed fennel and swish chard) would have been more distinct. My boyfriend had the scallops, which he enjoyed but there were barely 5 of them and the plate was almost $40. We got creme brulee for desert, which was the best part of the meal. Our server was outstanding and the wine list was great. I enjoyed the atmosphere, but would not come back for the food.

Wonderful meal- I had the filet with lobster risotto and my husband had the lamb. Both were very good. The bib lettuce salad was fresh and wonderful also. Too full for dessert! The service was excellent and everyone was efficient and friendly -starting with taking our coats at the door. Highly recommend when looking to eat a nice dinner in the North End.

The bread and mushroom appetizers were awesome, and the best part of the meal. My son ordered the Crispy Pork Chop and requested it medium +. The first 2 bites were good, and then he asked me why the color was different as he cut into it. We had to send it back for more time as it was raw. I ordered the Grilled Lamb Chop. When the waiter brought me my dinner, it looked like a steak, not the lamb chop. I started to inspect it when I asked him. He took it away and said this was someone else's dinner and then took my plate over to another table and brought the dish from another table to me. The Chop was undercooked and also it came from another table which disturbed me.

My bibb lettuce salad was excellent, but the ravioli dish (I had the one with ricotta and veal) were only so-so and smothered in sauce. Pretty disappointing. The service was also spotty, with periods of him hovering and never leaving our side and other periods where he was nowhere to be found.

Very accommodating when we arrived a little early for the reservation and our waiter Al was superb, making recommendations and remaining attentive. As for the food, the Ravioli with white truffle is NOT to be missed.
