Great, charming atmosphere. Wonderful, large bar for drink before dinner. Staff was great and the food was the best Italian I’ve had in a while. Red Sauce is so tasty. Steak was large and cooked to perfection and the polenta was amazing too. Large portions.

Was staying in Boston for conference, struggling to find non "American" food. Loved both meals. Great ambience and easy walking distance from Square.
