The food selection was good. It was average mall food though. Nothing too crazy. Other options may be better in this marketplace.

Loved the food and service, thought it was a good lunch spot. Ate here with my family and in-laws, we all enjoyed it.

Really good Lobster Roll and Clam Chowda! My husband ordered Lobster Bisque, and I think the Clam Chowda was so much better. The Lobster Roll however, was perfection! Generous meat and very sweet; wrapped in a soft bun! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Best clam chowda I had during my visit to Boston. Also tried the Lobster Bisque - very good as well. My husband had the Chicken Broccoli Ziti which was very good.

Formerly specializing in massive meatballs, the size and quantity have decreased but it's still the best meatballs we've found. Staff is friendly, helpful and fast and it's a great place to get some non-watery pasta and good, filling food.

My daughter ordered a creamy seafood pasta (white sauce with shrimp). I think the noodles must have been homemade, because the pasta is some of the best I've ever had. My daughter loved it. The portion is HUGE. We took a lot of leftovers home with us.

I have just ordered the regular meat lasagna for $6.99 with the optional drink and garlic bread for an extra $2. The Coke came sealed on a can, which obviously made it difficult to get wrong. The garlic bread looked good; it's got parsley and garlic and butter. However it is barely warm and so stale it beggars belief. I... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
