Took 7 others with me for this delicious meal and amazing wine. We did a bunch of appetizers to share and then I had the pappardelle pasta which is my fav. Didn’t disappoint. Had the chocolate gelato for dessert.

Not your typical italian restaurant. The food and service were both very good. From appertizer to the main meal and desert we enjoyed what we ordered. Place is small and gets noisy when full. You will need reservations and look for a place to park....More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
