5/5
“I would walk in freezing weather any day to come eat this amazing food. The service was great and one of the owners came out to chat and see how we liked everything. Come for the pasta and stay late for the espresso martinis. Smaller pasta portions were available but we all got the full size. I’d recommend this place for a girls night, fun bumble date, or to bring my second generation Italian family here.”

“Oh my lord! Probably one of the best Italian restaurants I’ve been to and the best Linguine Clams for sure. So much flavor in this dish. The serving portion is quite big too, with plenty of noodles. We started with the Chicken Parmesan Egg Rolls, which was such a great start to our dinner. The chicken parm was good by itself, but with the marinara it was even better! The complimentary bread was fresh and delicious..."

“Food was fantastic, service was attentive. Ordered the calamari and 2 pasta dishes, absolutely delicious. It was our anniversary and our server was kind enough to bring us a complementary dessert. The co-owner was coming around to every table to make sure everyone was enjoying the food and were being taken care of. You’ve gotta visit when you’re in the Boston North end!”
