As my wife lives in the neighborhood and this restaurant is a three-minute walk from the Liberty Hotel (where visiting friends sometimes choose to stay, and the reader of this review may be staying), I've been to this restaurant often, in snowstorms and in summer...More

Went here for dinner. t's a nice restaurant but dark. Most tables used phone flashlights to see the menu. The food and service get five stars.

I don't usually visit any restaurant twice during a holiday as I like to explore different options. However the service, food and beer was so good the first time when my wife and I both had Sicilian pizza that we had to go back and...More

I had a panini today as did my wife. My friend had vongole with red sauce. The food was good. The server was friendly and efficient. The setting is attractive.

Our server was very attentive and friendly. Host was a bit surly. Good wine list. Pizza was not memorable - salty crust and average toppings.

This tiny Italian restaurant was great! I visited with my 17 year old daughter, who was touring colleges. She is a vegetarian and had no trouble finding great options. The food and service were wonderful, better than in the North End.

One of the best spots in the city. Stopped by for lunch with my wife and still great. Hadn't been in a while. My Caesar Salad and an order of Gnocchi was perfect. A couple of glasses of vino rounded out an very enjoyable meal....More

Trendy, terrific, top-of-the-line! Everything was excellent: wait-staff, atmosphere, service, food. This was our first visit to Toscano's in Beacon Hill, and it was just as wonderful, in every way, as Toscano's in Cambridge. I had the caesar salad and then spaghetti with pomodoro sauce. I...More

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

Could we see the wine list please?
We will be arriving in Boston in early evening on Friday, May 1st, and wonder if we will be able to get a reservation for around 7 or 7:30 p.m?

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.
