Pasta's were great. Wine list was well chosen and well thought out but prices were a little high. Entree selections were, I thought, a little limited. I think some of my guests had a hard time. My duck dish was good but could have used a sauce. Again, the pasta's are the way to go, no question. Overall, it was very good but for casual dining sitting on the street, I found it to be a little pricey.
Excellent service as usual, food was excellent. Service and ambience
I had high expectations coming in and it more than met them. We sat outside so the noise level was a bit high at times from passing cars, people walking by on congress st. etc.. but nothing more than I expected. Food was fantastic. All 6 of us got different entrees and we all loved what we got. Highly recommend the homemade ricotta to start. Overall, great time hd by all and will definitely be back.
I was excited to have an amazingly delicious meal and it was not as delicious as I expected. High-quality food but it was not as flavorful as I wanted it.
really great experience
delicious food as always!
Service was excellent and the restaurant has a great energy to it. You are at the heart of the process of food and drink being created and the flavors and textures presented are truly excellent.
Our server Lindsay was great. Our food was delicious. Our coctaiks were tasty.
My daughter and I have always enjoyed visiting Sportellos over the years which is why it is one of our favorites and she chose Sportellos to celebrate her birthday! We had amazing meals paired with delicious wine which were recommended by our friendly Waiter Tommy G. He was excellent! Very friendly and informative and made everyone at the table feel comfortable our night one to
Delicious food and drinks
There is a house ricotta so it was present in our beet salad and in the cannoli. The desert with the donut hole with a drizzle of high end honey rocked my world. We washed it all down with loose leaf chamomile tea served in sweet little pots. I do not drink alcohol so the bartender whipped up a citrus rosemary concoction that sparkled with tonic water. She put that together off the cuff. Outstanding
Service was incredibly slow and inattentive, especially given the time limits due to COVID.
Food was excellent and tasty . Our server answered all of our questions and offered suggestions . Very nice and accommodating.
Great food, cozy ambiance, patient service. Wonderful experience!
Great food - service could have been a bit more attentive but overall decent value. Be prepared to spend $100/person for the full treatment.
The food and service are ALWAYS fantastic at Sportello!
We were celebrating our anniversary and had a great experience. We felt warmed and well taken care of. Food was delicious.
The food is so good I can’t wait to go back again. Only issue we had was waiting for a table for too long. But otherwise everything was good.
The waitress could not have been better. Amazing good & service!
The food is amazing! We will be back for sure!!
Good vibes food was on point as always
We absolutely loved our experience. We had a fantastic waiter. We felt safe with the social distancing. We tried so many menu items and felt extremely satisfied. Can't wait to return!
We found this restaurant to be outstanding. There were four of us and we each ordered a different pasta dish. One was better than the other. We also ordered a mixed Compari cocktail which was to die for. Run don’t walk to this restaurant.
As always, solid staff with great input. And delicious food!
Pasta was bland. Drinks good. Service great!
This place is really special. After a year of mainly take out or quick in and out dining, it felt refreshing to have a long dinner with friends over incredible food and drinks. Our waitress was able to pair wine to our meals and the cocktails were sublime. The food was great, although the gnocchi was a little disappointing, lacked flavor, but overall everyone enjoyed everything. Try the duck rillete - you will not regret!
Wonderful pasta, great salads and terrific service
We had the best server ever. The food was delicious but he made the evening. I should have taken note of his name. Either way, thank you so much for a very special evening!
Never disappoints. So nice to see the same excellent servers on every visit serving the same from scratch favorites. I’ll never tire of the Gnocchi. Still one of the best restaurants in Boston.
Fantastic! Had such a lovely time!
Sportello is one of our favorite places for dining . Their food is out of this world and is not crazy expensive. They also have special menu items that are very well crafted. All in all this is one of those to go places without any hesitation
The cuisine was wonderful ! The drinks were amazing! The service was good. It’s a different type of set up and decor which gives you a different feel in the restaurant which was nice fir a change. We had a nice booth next to the window !
The service and food are always outstanding here. I highly reccomend it to anyone who has not yet visited.
Regular at the restaurant before COVID. Immensely understaffed. One server for the entire indoor restaurant. It took 45 minutes for us to put in food. It took 90 minutes for us to receive entrees. Won’t return until things normalize.
Had an amazing lunch. Loved the scratch pasta, unique antipasta and drinks.
Unbelievable food and wine! Knowledgeable, wonderful staff!
Excellent service and food despite Covid restrictions. Thank you for staying open!!!
Loved the experience
A lot of restaurants are trying to create an atmosphere when dining outside. There were metal barriers and nothing really decor wise. Thank you!
Great! Wish the menu was a bit more expansive, perhaps with a few more options in the starter and entree categories
