About the restaurant
Step out onto our rooftop deck with its amazing view of the city. Perfect for late afternoon snacks and cocktails. This location is the place to be for sunset dinners. The views make it a perfect Instagram post. Dinner, cocktails, and wine are the must when visiting and dining 12 stories above the seaport overlooking the beautiful Boston skyline.

Great food and service. However, the music and atmosphere was loud and it was difficult to have a conversation at your own table.

This experience was absolutely and entirely worth it. Our reservation was at 6:30 so we timed it perfectly to get our drinks, food and dessert just in time to enjoy the sunset by the end of the meal. It was utterly perfect for me and my partner's anniversary.

Went there for a special occasion. The arancini and salad appetizers (especially the insalata misto) were great. Tried the eggplant parm, short rib and buccatini. All fresh and very well put together with balanced flavors.

The food was delicious, but actual service was quite slow. The chef sent out fries after a bit to tide things over. The restaurant was not busy, so we couldn’t figure out the timing. Waiter was very pleasant.
