Everything was excellent. The waiter offered a special appetizer plate since we were a group of 5 and it was fantastic! The plate had an impressive sampling of their appetizers presented on individual plates for each person. I would return just for the appetizers. The...More

Located on Charles Street in the Beacon Hill neighborhood, this Cozy Tuscan restaurant serves solid fare. My aqua cotto soup was excellent. The salmon main was fresh and well-prepared. Service was friendly and attentive. The menu isn’t particularly daring or innovative, but execution was on...More

This was our first visit to this warm and welcoming restaurant. We had a wonderful dining experience. The calamari was tender and bursting wit his flavor. The fish and pasta also excellent. We look forward to our next visit!

We stopped in for lunch at the recommendation of a friend. Overall I was disappointed. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated and comfortable. The wait staff was great. The food did not live up to my expectations. The eggplant was overfried and thin and the...More

We enjoyed this place a lot. Service was first rate - unhurried and welcoming. We had a great table in the window. We had the sausage pizza and a salad - both of which were really good. This place isn’t cheap but it feels authentic...More

Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking

It's too bad they are not a part of Open Table reservations. Call when you get into town. The North end is a close 15 minute walk from that area for more choices of Italian foods.
