Although we had to wait almost an hour, outside in the cold 50 degree windy weather, once we were seated the waitress was attentive and served all the dishes when they were ready. The Fried Calamari was one of the best appetizers we have ever eaten. I had a menu listed North End Swordfish, which had mushrooms and sun dried... More

We came at 2:10 on a Sunday thinking they opened at 2pm as it says on yelp but turns out they open at 2:30pm on sundays so beware. Waiter was nice and prompt with our orders. The calamari wasn't crisp, definitely brittle and couldn't be picked up by a fork due to the brittle condition. It definitely could have been... More

Came here for my favorite linguini with white clam and calamari, it was a celebration for 1 year anniversary. Food is ALWAYS good, the same waitress has been there for the last few years and she is great!The seafood generally is excellent.

Excellent restaurant, everything is excellent. Tried a great seared tuna special, shared fried calamari. Mussels marinara are terrific. Hard to go wrong. If there was something to complain about, it's that many of the dishes are overpriced, for example $29 for a basic tuna steak.

I went with my husband and three children. We all had something different (including the specials) and everything was excellent. The atmosphere was also nice as it is such a small place. One of our new favorite places!

Food served hot and fresh, in frying pans, quite fun. The pasts are generous in serving but the seafood on top is a very small portion. They serve their own black squid pasts which has a slightly different flavor to regular pasts but not worth the difference in cost. Friendly people but not particularly caring about service. The kitchen is... More

I have come here many times. The fish is always great. Usually, the service is very friendly, making the experience complete. Last week, however, there was a waiter who had never learned the word please and was indifferent to people waiting outside even though there were empty clean tables available. Left a message for the owners but they never replied.

We were able to walk right into this tiny restaurant but I would suggest reservations. We saw several parties turned away and a few people waiting outside in the cold (which infiltrates the restaurant every time the door is opened). Most of the dishes are pasta based which suited us just fine. Good service, reasonable prices, we would return.

We dined here 2 days ago. Luckily for us it was a quiet night being a Jewish holiday. Usually there is a line up outside the door. Always a good sign. It is small, discreet and popular. We chose the Littlenecks for starters. Very nice! I had the Linguine and Scallops for mains. My husband opted for the Blackened Tuna... More
