Read about it on Foursquare and decided to give it a try. Very good food, the pizza called “salty pig” is very good and with a reasonable price. Beer on tap is also excellent like the waiters. Would come back any time!

This place was fantastic. The meat and cheese boards are outstanding. The pizza was even better! Definitely a nice change up from all the seafood spots in Boston.

We had long been hearing about this place from our son, and we went on a recent trip to Boston. Charcuterie boards are customizable, and amazing. Great drinks list too. We will go back!

Chose to go here for a drink before getting on train to head back to my hotel. Convenient to the station and service was prompt and friendly. Also ordered a pate that was delicious.

Nice, informal, busy, warm and tasty place for dinner and drinks. No bookings for smaller groups and the place fills up very quickly, but there are bars nearby where you can wait and they will hold a table for you. Food, drinks and service all...More

I don't know if they had a gluten free menu but there are enough selections on the menu with salad, fresh cheeses and charcuterie. I don't know if any of their pizzas are gluten free.
