“Mostly good with a bit of bad”

6 of us had lunch here on a rainy weekday afternoon.
The Good:

Most of the menu items have a large and small option(priced accordingly) which I wish more restaurants would offer. Even the small portions were generous.
The complimentary Italian bread was fresh and delicious.
The pasta was cooked just beyond al dente but not mushy, a must for any worthwhile Italian restaurant. It didn't taste freshly made, but if you're going to use dry, cook it properly which they did.
The marinara sauce wasn't outstanding, but perfectly passable.

The Bad:

The waitress was very distracted despite it not being busy. Maybe just having a bad day, but the service wasn't appreciated by any of us.

The one seafood dish that was ordered (broiled scrod gardiner) could have been a winner, but it was literally swimming in a half inch of cooking oil. A teaspoon or so to prevent drying would have worked, but this was complete overkill and ruined the dish.

Good food, huge portions. They also offer family meals which I'm not sure people know about? They are served family style and will feed at least 4 to 5'people. Great bar. Best Italian bread around.

Went there twice . Once as a family and once with another couple we’re 48 and enjoy a nice dinner out and I have to say the food and drinks is fantastic as well as the wait staff but I’m giving it 4 stars because it’s noisy . Prefer a more cozy environment when enjoying a nice meal but it’s a little crowded and you can hear everyone else’s conversation.

Huge portions. Great tasting. Reasonable prices. Went here after visiting Bridgewater State for Homecoming. Ordered the chicken parmigiana with angel hair. I was starving...I still couldn’t finish. Many doggie bags leaving this restaurant. This place was so busy, we ate at the bar to avoid the wait. Bartender was awesome.
