The food was good but very expensive for what we had. I would not recommend this place because there are so many great Italian restaurants in Malden and the immediate suburbs.

We met family for an early dinner here-a small but charming bistro. The food was excellent-a variety of dishes and specials. Service was excellent, dessert was very good-authentic tiramisu.

We weren't able to get a reservation as early as we wanted, and were seated late as this is a very small place and it was a busy night. That said, the zucchini crab cake and antipasti were excellent. We ordered a variety of entrees...More
