There's a reason that Sycamore is the top rated restaurant in Newton! I was lucky to get a reservation for Wednesday night, as it was packed! My meal was exceptional from start to finish. We started off with the roasted brussels spouts with cheese and bacon, the roasted cauliflower and the winter citrus salad, which all tasted delicious and were... More

The food is just amazing! I had an amazing grilled fluke with a warm cucumber salad and a chicory salad to start. The flavors, while unique, come together well. My only complaint was a very cranky waiter who essentially ignored us. Luckily the food is good enough that we just ignored him too.

Great food. Intimate setting. High priced for Newton. Parking can be somewhat challenging at times but worth it.

5 star meal! Enjoying the chef's Trattoria Di Marotta Monday menu. From Rabbit to Branzino to sirloin steak to Château Le Puy Emilien rouge -- perfection. Go early as it can get crowded and the noise factor may detract from your experience.

Interesting, creative, well-executed menu, generous cocktails, friendly and attentive service, all in a warm, attractive, smaller suburban space. Book well ahead, they fill up quickly!
