Dinner tonight was terrific. Nice ambiance (although a little on the dark side). Veal, tagliatelle, Caesar with chicken and New England chowder all very, very good. Our server Caitlyn was very attentive. Plenty of other things I would have tried on the menu.

During a snowstorm, it was one of the only places open. Had appetizers one time and lunch another. Both were great. Wonderful pizzas--traditional was best. Waiter and Host were great.

We absolutely love Sonsie, first place we go when we visit Boston! The vibe is cozy during the day and sexy at night plus you can’t beat that location.
