We visited late on a very cold evening, but still received a great welcome. We decided not to have starters as we thought the main courses would be very large and we wanted to try the puddings. We both had pasta, the lasagne was one...More

This was a first for us - our chef, Adam, came to our table and explained gluten-free options for my wife. She settled on the "Our Famous Rigatoni "D"®" with gluten-free penne pasta. She enjoyed it very much. I had the Linguine di Mare, and...More

Arrived for 7:30 reservation on Sunday night, party of 16. Yes, a large party....but should be well within the capability of a restaurant of such repute and experience. Instead, the whole evening....was a comedy of errors and incompetence. We were seated in the middle of...More

Went here last night for a quick dinner. No meat, as it was Friday. We mostly ordered pastas... Fettucini Alfredo, Pasta Primavera and Eggplant Parmesan (with pasta). Also fried calamari as an appetizer. (Which was excellent...light and crispy!) We enjoyed every dish! Only kink... my...More

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

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.
