Wonderful lunch in an warm and welcoming setting. My son enjoy the spaghetti and meatballs- yummy. And I opted for the "lighter" Fettuccine Alfredo it was delicious. I would definitely enjoy another meal here.

The place seemed really popular with locals. Not sure why. The veal parmigiana wasn't very good. Service was slow. Cappuccino was so-so. At least the tiramisu was tasty. The meal wasn't worth the wait. Very loud and crowded. If you are looking for something intimate,...More

If you like cheap prices for Boston for Italian food, this is your place. You get what you pay. Average Chain Food. Nothing spectacular about this restaurant. If you want real Italian food, by pass this place.

Enjoyed the service. Real Italian friendly waitress gave good recommendations, warned us not to order too many dishes. Good advice... Food was very tasty. My personal recommendation is the zucchini fritte and John's Carbonara.

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

I am gluten free and they can basically alter the pasta dishes to become gluten free. They have gluten free pasta's and it all tastes great.

Not sure if pastas was house made but the food was very good. They seem like they added a little love to it as well.

There didn't seem to be a dress code. But I would say be modest anywhere you go.
