The service here is terrible to non-existent. I have gone twice in the past month and left TWICE because I'm ignored by the wait and bar staff. With all the other options around, I wouldn't go here. Try Tia's, Vito's, Parla, Bricco, Mare, Monica's, Quatro,...More

We came here for brunch on Saturday and didn't end up staying. The menu items looked good, but the place was so dirty that we left before we even ordered. The place smelled like a dirty bar when we walked in. The waitress told us...More

Went to this spot for brunch with my brother and sister. Food was good. Ordered some appetizers: momos, chicken & biscuits, and buff chicken dumplings. Those were great. I had the spiced banana bread French toast. Great mixture of spices and quite sweet. Everyone else...More

We were with friends, celebrating a birthday. There were appetizers galore which were actually quite good and we ordered a little something more, just to not be drinking without something more substantial (did I mention we're getting old?) and all of that was great. The...More

I'm not sure if you were in the lounge (which does fill up up with happy people) or in the dining room, which is quieter. Thursday, Friday and Saturday there is a DJ in the lounge at 10 PM so the party goers do come...More

They were the best to work with while planning a highschool reunion with about 100 guests. I would highly recommend for any work or social function. Fantastic, attentive staff the night of, and great, accommodating when planning the event. Great venue

Very nice for a Saturday brunch! Many choices from standard breakfast fare to burgers & lunch choices. The Parmesan duck fat fries are amazing!! Great mimosas and drinks. Very comfortable atmosphere - eat at regular tables or on sofas. Fun place!

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
