Absolutely a wonderful experience. The food was incredible as was the service and ambiance! We went on a Tuesday so Tony was there. Very cool. There is not a full bar but the aperitivo/ digestif and beer/ wine menu were creative and expansive! Excited to return.

Excellent atmosphere and food. I have tried many restaurants in the North End. After trying this one I have found no other to be as authentic Italian as this one. This is the true experience you're looking for when you come to Boston's little Italy, I can promise that. 10/10

Went on a Monday night. We ordered the spaghetti special with a few apps and wine. A great deal, and more than enough for two people. The meatballs tasted like my mom's recipe, passed down from her Italian relatives. We will go back for the date night special!

Food was okay. Burnt rolls. And got the date night special which comes with a cannoli which they ran out of and apparently run put every week when they run the promotion. Waiter was rude and EVERYONE KEPT TAKING THEIR MASKS OFF ESPECIALLY IN THE KITCHEN. GROSS AND DISAPPOINTED.

The outdoor patio is very quaint, tucked into the neighboring lot. They have heat lamps so hopefully the weather stays nice enough to go a few more times. They have an amazing date night special on Wednesday’s and Thursdays that me and my wife frequent. The food and service is amazing. Even though the tables were full, they didn’t rush us out and allowed us to sit and enjoy the night out. I highly recommend.

The meatballs, chicken parm, and eggplant parm were all delicious! The cannoli filling didn't taste right. It was nice to eat outside with the heaters! Definitely recommend this restaurant!

The food was fine but not note worthy and the rest of the experience was poor. The table behind us was ~2 feet away once both parties were seated (not COVid compliant), there weren't enough heaters to cover the outdoor space making it really uncomfortable on a cold and windy night. My dish was incorrect (served with pork after asking for no pork as I'm vegetarian) and the server was not attentive.

We had a great Saturday family dinner with our sons while visiting them in Boston. The food was excellent, highly recommend the arancini appetizer. The eggplant parm, pasta Bolognese and penne ala vodka were excellent. The limoncello was an excellent finish to a great meal. The ambiance was nice between the buildings on a beautiful Saturday night.

Nice little place with large outdoor area. Food arrived incredibly quickly. Seemed almost like it was already prepared. It was lukewarm and tasted almost old. The mains came before appetizer which came even though we said we didn’t want it. It too (Arancini wasn’t very good.

The "Cheap Date Night" is a great deal! 2 appetizers, 2 homemade pasta dishes, and a plate of mini cannoli for $40. The outdoor patio is pleasant (minus the fact that it does face Washington St and gets a bit of street noise) and tables are distanced from each other. The mozzarella sticks are amazing and the sauces are tasty.

We saw some pictures of Tony and Elaine's maybe a year ago on Instagram, and it's been floating on our list or new restaurants to try ever since. I can't believe it took us this long to get there! The food was wonderful, everyone at our table enjoyed the different pastas ordered. The service was incredibly fast - we barely finished the bread and it was already coming out. The outdoor seating was quite lovely, they've managed to turn a little alley alcove into something cozy and cute, and it's sheltered enough off of the road that it doesn't feel like you're sitting outside in traffic. They've done well with individual containers for things like olive oil, red pepper, etc, and we felt quite comfortable with their safety measures. The wine was a little pricey, it's certainly not a budget meal, but it was excellent.
