We had a nice dinner with the family. The chicken picata was delicious. My choice of pasta was penne and it was cooked perfectly. The desert cart had so many choices. Great experience.

It's time to update. The food is good, not special. Most desserts come from Modern Pastry in the North End of Boston. It was very quiet, and good for conversation.
