“Mouthwatering homemade spinach ravioli and pesto sauce.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

This is a tiny place and getting there around 11:30am meant we missed the crowds. Our son, who's been there several times before with my mother, ordered his favorite, gnocchi. I had the spinach ravioli and pesto and my husband ordered chicken cacchatore. One is able to chose the homemade sauce to go with one's dish and I loved the pesto. Just the right amount of herbs, seasoning, and pignoli nuts. The bolognese sauce was also very good. It was all excellent except the chicken was disappointing as it was a bit overcooked.

“Lady Sub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2011

This was possibly the BEST sub I had the entire time I was in Boston. I got the Lady sub which was mozzarella, basil, and balsamic vinegar. It was recommended to me by an employee at the Old North Church and he wasn't kidding when he said it was a great deli! My family and I took our subs and went to eat at the park nearby and all of this is only a block away from the Freedom trail. GREAT SUB!
