    Of our four meals one was good, the other three poor. It took an hour and a half from the time we ordered until the time our main courses arrived. (for which the manager did apologize.) Even though the restaurant was half empty, the noise made conversation difficult. Altogether an unpleasant experience.

    Overall it was a very good experience. It started out quite noisy due to some large parties, but once they left it was fine. Our server Levi was excellent! He gave us very helpful descriptions about the menu and appropriate wine pairings and was very attentive. The menu offers enough variety without being overwhelming. The Vitello e Cinghiale Bolognese (veal and wild boar ragu, rigatoni and Parmesan Reggiano) was excellent, especially the ragu. My mother had the Milanesa with chicken (pollo). She said it was nothing special, but it was good. We both enjoyed the restaurant and would go again.

    The staff were extremely friendly. They sat all of the tables scattered throughout the restaurant so everyone could have their own privacy, They gave great recommendations on wine and food. The bruschetta was the best Ive ever had. We were celebrating my partner’s birthday and we ordered tiramisu and they didn’t have us pay for it which is wicked sweet! They checked on us frequently but not too much where it was annoying, the perfect balance. Very professional with a great energy.

    What a great night! Decided to try Stazione after reading good reviews and was not disappointed in the least! We were greeted by Luis one of the managers who sat us, and had a terrific server- Jackie. Everything from the shrimp appetizer to the swordfish, eggplant pasta dish and the salted caramel gelato were delicious! We enjoyed chatting with Luis and appreciated all Jackie’s suggestions. Will go back and will bring friends!!

    The food was good, we had 2 pasta dishes( cacio e Pepe and primavera) salmon dish and chicken Marsala. They were all good portions , not r tra huge , not little, just prefect! Our young adults are super picky but they loved the pastas. It was our first time, it looks like a great restaurant but the noise level was very high so we could hardly each other. The dishes came pretty quick so whole dining experience was 1,5 hour , which was great and we could tolerate the noise. People were having too much fun which was a good sign! We will go there again. OverLl a good experience

    Been here a few times and as usual Food was excellent. We had clams, oysters, veal, salmon, etc All Good. We would have loved to have wine with each course but they seem to have a problem getting wine/drinks to the table. They only have One bartender and Saturday Night crowds are probably too much. After a cocktail, our first wine order did not arrive till AFTER we finished our first course and we had to cancel 2nd wine order because it never came. I think they should get some Bar help on busy nights. Or at least train waitress to at least help with simple wine orders. But glad they are getting busier. They deserve it!

    Very disappointed, so looking for some delicious Italian food. Each dish we ordered had no taste, probably because they came out 5 minutes after we ordered them. Tells me not fresh. Too bad it’s a beautiful place, but they need a new Chef with Italian authenticity!!!

    We sat down and our server was wonderful. She brought us water and waited to ask for our drinks while we settled in. She graciously came back and asked what we wanted for drinks and we ordered. She came back and we asked to put in for appetizers and ate the Marinated shrimp skewers ( YUM and perfectly cooked with a sauce that’s to die for) and the Caprese salad ( a MUST have a with thick juicy Heirloom tomatoes, basil, fresh buffalo mozzarella and pesto on the side). We then ordered the salmon with broccolini and potatoes and the Chicken Milanese with Tagliatelle in Aglio e Olio. The sauce on the crispy Milanese was ridiculously delicious and the Portions for both was very generous. We finished with Tiramisu ( wow) and cannolis ( extra WOW) and they were so kind as it was our wedding anniversary they comped desserts. Price was reasonable and fabulous 5 stars and we might go tonight again. Hector M Waltham MA

    Fantastic new find on Moody Street. We were promptly greeted and seated. Nicely appointed dining room. Casual elegance I would call it. Nice wine list. Calamari app was very good. Enjoyed the Chicken Marsala and Chicken Milanesa entrees. Both were delicious. Nice dessert offerings. The have a beautiful bar area as well. Prices were very reasonable, we'll definately be back!

    First time here. Beautiful dining room on the first floor. Great bar area also. Snuck a peek upstairs to their second floor and 2 smaller private dining rooms, another nice bar and an outdoor patio. Something to check out later in the summer. Anyway, started with homemade focaccia with olive oil. Good start. Cocktails came soon there after, house negroni (italian gin) and a lemon basil splash for my wife. Split clams casino with my wife. Cherrystone sized, yummy. For dinner, I had the veal milanesa (could be considered a piccata with the lemon and capers). Large piece of veal. Great meal. My wife had the grilled swordfish with fregola. She loved it. Wine list was mainly Italian, sectioned into the various regions. We split a bottle of Fermentino from Sardinia (which went quite well with both dinners, especially my wife's). Service (Tim et al) was excellent. Will be back! Great room/food/service - not too pricy, makes it easy for us!

    It was our first time dining there. The waitstaff are very friendly and attentive, and make you feel like family. Liz, our waitress, was so sweet and knowledgeable. It was our anniversary dinner and she made sure we had a special evening. She also gave us a tour of the second floor which has a rooftop deck. The manager(s) would come around to ensure we were enjoying everything. They weren’t invasive, just enough. The oysters were fresh and tasty. The veal Marsala was excellent, and the Caesar salad, spot on. Desserts are to die for. After dinner we headed to the bar. The bartender was so nice and fun to spend time with. He also makes a great sangria; I highly recommend. We met a nice couple and had lots of laughs. The bar is comfortable and welcoming. They care about the customer’s dining experience. We definitely go back.

    First time at this restaurant. It was Very good to say the least. Food was outstanding as was the service. Not many places you can find both Clam and Oyster Casino, and both were excellent as were all the appetizers we had. Main courses including Swordfish, Pasta and Chicken were some of the best Italian we have had in a while. They have not ben open long, just a matter of time before folks discover them and they will be more crowded. Also, good wine choices and good prices. Try Them, you won't be disappointed.

    Tim and Ravi took outstanding care of us at dinner. Both our cocktails were delicious (‘Orange Spritz’ and the ‘About Thyme’). The calamari was excellent - not too much breading and some spicy but flavorful peppers with them. After that the carbona and the milanesa continued our amazing experience. Last but not least we enjoyed the Tiramisu and a Nutella brownie with a scoop of salted caramel ice cream. We can’t wait to return!
