Small dining area so long lines outside. But they turn over the seats pretty fast. We had the calamari; I had scallops, my husband had the special with 1/2 lobster, clams, and mussels. Both on bed of fettucini. You choose the sauce from a list-...More

Great dinner. Very small restaurant, but the food is definitely worth the wait. Lobster ravioli was outstanding! Great value for what you pay.

great location anyway as Hanover street is fantastic to visit, probably the best Italian district I've visited. Always a queue, get there early, or have a drink nearby and watch the line it does lengthen and shorten a lot over time. Can get very hot...More

This is a small restaurant with tight seating and be prepared to stand outside and wait for a table. We waited in line for about 40 minutes early on a Friday night, but they do move the people in & out as quickly as possible....More

First off, it’s worth the wait in the blasted line out front. We were fortunate enough to be behind another young couple that was local to the area so conversation made the hour and a half wait go by fairly smooth. The food was great,...More

We waited 55 minutes in line for a table. We were crowded in and constantly rushed. We ordered a $40 bottle of wine that came too warm to drink. The food was generous but mediocre at best. Why people wait in line was beyond us...More

We had friends recommend this restaurant. When we got there at 5:00 there was a long line outside and we almost left, but the man in line in front of us said it was worth the wait. We are so glad we waited. Caesar salad...More

This place is a joke and the joke is on the patrons who have to line up outside in order to get a seat at one of the 9 tables jammed into a place that would be crowded with only 5 tables. The food is...More

Excellent food. Small place, no reservations, cash only. Well worth the wait (outside). Get there before 7 PM and the wait is not too bad. Later could be up to an hour but the food is well worth it. Lobster ravioli is especially good.

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
