Waitress was super nice. The rest of my party showed up late and she remained friendly the whole time. Caprese appetizer was lights out. Main dish (veal) was also top notch. Highly recommend.

Just recently opened after completing a remodel - so glad to have tried it here. Small and unassuming from the outside but step inside and be prepared to be delighted. Great wine list and full bar with some delicious cocktails! You can also enjoy the full menu at the bar. Menu has some italian staples and many staples with a twist! All the pasta is home made - the orecchiette with rabe and shrimp was delicious, the mushroom ravioli was fresh and flavorful and the linguine with clam sauce was also very good and had a good amount of clams in the dish. We started with the olive and cheese appetizer - generous portion for three of us to share. No dessert this time but we will be back!

Unfortunately, when we arrived at the restaurant for a special occasion dinner, which we had planned months in advance, the place was boarded up!

Would have been nice to hear from Open Table or the restaurant ahead of time to let us know.

Quite an embarrassment and inconvenience.

I made reservations in February for a date night on March 11th. We were really looking forward to trying out this restaurant. We show up at our reserved and confirmed time through open table only to find that the restaurant was closed due to renovations. I did not receive ANY notice that they were closed. Their website does not say they are closed. Thankfully we were able to salvage the night by going to another restaurant close by who had availability. Why would you be accepting reservations when you are closed due to renovations?

The sweet potato gnocchi was amazing. I would get it again.

Our waitress completely forgot to put in our food order. We waited almost 30 minutes just for our appetizer. Got a quick "sorry!" but would have been nice to have had a bit more sympathetic response or at least have it taken off our bill.

Had dined here in the past and had an enjoyable experience so booked a table for Valentine's Day. The restaurant was over crowded, loud, and generally hectic. The server didn't bother to greet us when we sat down, acted annoyed by our presence, and service remained atrocious throughout the night. Food was bland and lacking in quality on all fronts, and server had zero knowledge of the wine list or menu to offer us. This was a very steep price to pay for such a disappointing experience.

Been to the restaurant many times. It was just ok this time. It was a slow snowy night so the good news is our reservation was honored on time. I ordered the pesto pasta with scallops which I have had before. The temperature was not piping hot is was closer to warm than hot and it was not seasoned well at all... it was bland. So I was disappointed. The bread was not as fresh as usual either. With all the choices in the North End I don't think I will make this my go to anymore.

Nice little Italian restaurant in the North End. Good, basic Italian fare. Everything we ordered was good, but nothing was exceptional. Service was very warm and friendly.
