We enjoyed our dinner today. Good service, good food. The lobster ravioli was great. Even though it was very busy and a feast weekend we were seated promptly with prompt service.

Visited Boston in August, this restaurant was recommended by good friends. What a gem! After a busy morning/early afternoon of sightseeing, we were ready to relax. This was like being back in Italy, ate al fresco and had a wonderful late and lisurely lunch. Some...More

I wanted to eat "healthy" so I opted for the Grigliata di Pesce, a dish of grillled scallops, shrimp, calamari and sea bass with grilled veggies. The fish was so overcooked. The shrimp and calamari were rubbery. The size of the sea bass was an...More

We always have a meal in this restaurant when in Boston. It used to be a tiny place but we found it has really expanded, so much easier to get a table although still always seems to be busy. Simple food but good fresh flavours,...More

First time in Boston, we decided to have dinner here. It was good though a little loud inside, food was okay probably I expected more. A lot of people too, make sure to get your reservations early to avoid waiting.

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

I'm not sure how extensive the gluten-free choices are, but my husband was able to get a gluten-free pasta for the dish he ordered.
