Ordered the eggplant parmigiana— terrible. — bitter and mushy eggplant. Sauce with no spice no character. No salt. Coffee was bitter, old and burnt. My friends linguine was ok. It had the bolenasie sauce that was a special.

Excellent food and service! A hidden gem amongst great restaurants along Charles Street. A local place where you may interact with other patrons and enjoy authentic Italian food.

I had chicken cacciatore. Rather bland, not interestingly seasoned. Lots of it l, but I would have preferred quality to quantity. Salad ok, but only lettuce used was iceberg. Good service. I feel this place is overpriced given mediocre quality of food.

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
