Made a reservation a few weeks in advance. This is a 2 story place and holds several tables on each floor. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. This restaurant doesn't have a full liquor license so beware. The fried calamari was one of...More

Amazing Food!! Small and tight, but delicious and authentic. I’ve never had Italian this good before. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered.

Witt Sopranos on loop in the bar and the staff all looking moody in Black the atmosphere is perfect, then the faces crack and the smiles and warm welcome come out. This is Italy but the Boston way! In most restaurants they pass the menu...More

Recently went here on the recommendation of others and was very disappointed. We had a 730 reservation and did not get seated until well after 8pm and spent less time dining than we did waiting. My friend ordered the lobster ravioli and I ordered veal...More

Had an excellent early dinner here at about 4:30 on a Saturday and right after we sat down the place really started filling up. We had just walked in, but if you're eating later than that you'd really need a reservation. Very attentive waitstaff. There...More

They had a looped video of the John Gotti movie which frankly was distracting. Great for the ambience, but do you want to see violence while you're eating your pasta? We got there before our early reservation and were led downstairs (they seem to seat...More

The food was very very good. Portions were very large. Reasonable wine options. Prices were very fair. Service was attentive. My only 'nit' is that we waited nearly 30 minutes after our reservation time. Be advised.

We were spending the day exploring Boston and I decided to time it for a late lunch in the North End right near the Old North Church of Paul Revere game. Surprised it was not as busy as several other North End Italian establishments but...More

We visited two weeks ago early on a Sunday evening. We sat in the front and enjoyed the open window. Service was friendly and attentive. The calamari appetizer was superb. Entree portions were generous and flavorful. An authentic Italian dining experience.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

Yes, full bar. I doubt they have many types of scotch, however.

Yes, if he's well behaved. He may feel special being in a restaurant with lots of adults.
