We had a wonderful dinner last Saturday evening celebrating our grandsons 22nd birthday!! The rice and cheese square served with the salmon my husband ordered was one of a kind and very delicious!!! The home
Add pasta with my veal parm was amazing!! The chicken stuffed pasta one grandson ordered amazing ... we never saw it prepared like that before. Our only disappointment is that nothing special was done for our grandsons birthday!

Came here before our New Years Eve gala, had a wonderful dinner with my boyfriend, my friend, and her date. We all loved the food and really enjoyed the service. The waitress was kind and knowledgeable of the menu, as well as the staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall 10/10!

P.S - should note that my boyfriend lived in Italy for a year and my friend’s date is Italian and they were completely amazed at how authentic the food tasted! A real slice of Italian cuisine!

Happy New Year! My wife and I had a nice dinner on New Year's Eve. The asparagus/fried egg appetizer was delicious. Caesar salad was fresh. Our entrees, Ravioli and deconstructed chicken lasagna were tasty. The sauce was very nice. We enjoyed a nice bottle of Barolo and our desserts, crème brulee and chocolate torte were great. A glass of limoncello capped the night. I had the clear limoncello while my wife had t a creamier version. I found hers a little too sweet.

This place is amazing!! We went for dinner on Saturday night and everything tasted so good. I got the linguini pomodoro and my boyfriend got the spaghetti aglio e olio, a favorite dish of his, and this blew him away. The wine we got was delicious as well and our server Paola was the perfect level of attentive, not intrusive but never absent when we needed her. We’ll definitely be back!

We had a meal there 4 years ago with friends & had always planned to return. Our return visit did not disappoint! We had actually tried to eat there 3 weeks ago with out doing open table & faced over 2 hour wait. We loved our meals, the wine list is an Italian adventure & the staff attentive, professional & knowledgeable. It is one of our North End favorites!
