We enjoyed a prime rib late lunch. Had to bring some home too. Nice large bar and booths around the room and the service was excellent.

One of the best local restaurants in Somerville. The food is amazing, the Lobster ravioli is one of my favorite plates. All the staff are very friendly and efficient.

The write-up for this restaurant sounded so cozy and old-fashioned...fireplaces (not working), "swank" (not), unexpected ambience (yes, like a local joint).

This place is a great neighborhood meeting place, but not... More
