  • thinktest reviewThis is simply the best food I've ever had. Try anything and everything on the menu, esp the mussles. I can't believe it doesn't have better reviews here. Perhaps its becuase it is a small restaurant that is often crowded, with a long wait (lines outside are common.) But when you get in, it's ALWAYS worht the wait. FANTASTIC!!!

  • thinktest reviewIncredible food! The soups are out of this world. The veal marsala is the best I have ever experienced. You can bring your own wines.

  • ren reviewThe noise level was out of control. Do not attempt to have a nice meal there on a hot day. Expect to remove a mountain of tomato chunks to see what your ravioli looks like. Alcohol is not available and the choice of soft drinks was very slim. Halfway thru the meal we asked to have it boxed up to take home. It tasted better without the horrible atmosphere but is way too expensive to justify a take out experience in the future. Too much hassel to eat there.

  • thinktest reviewIF you love Italy, you will love this restaraunt. Small space filled with locals and generous helpings of the best quality food the owner can get his hands on. He usually makes his way personally around to all of the tables to check on you and will vary dishes acording to your taste. Very friendly staff and by far the best place in the Boston area I have been to.

  • thinktest reviewExtreamly casual, small, long lines but FANTASTIC food and they do take out. BYOB keeps your bill total down and they do not serve dessert. Don't be uptight when you go. Best to plan a nice night walking around once you put your name in and check back to see if your table is ready. Friendly staff and crowd.

  •  Awesome local Italian joint. Cash only and always full. More convenient to order take-out which usually takes 20-30 mins, instead of waiting forever outside.

  •  Portion sizes are huge. You can easily split an appetizer before your entree. Slow service, but worth the wait.

    55555 by Tiffany D.


  •  Mussels are a must try!

    55555 by Art V.


  •  Try the baked gouda over greens. Yum, yum

  •  Amazing food here, got the portobella sandwich and it is amazing. Found out the hard way they only accept cash. This is now my out of Boston favorite place.

    55555 by Shane M.


  •  Bring wine, cash (no cc) and an appetite. Sweet Basil is my favorite place - I eat here weekly when in town. They've really ruined me for other spots - I love the food and the staff.

    55555 by Mark B.


  •  Incredible food!! Bring your own bottle of wine and be sure to bring cash. HUGE portions, but they make great leftovers. Strike up a conversation with their awesome staff
