Best of Boston
1998 Best Mediterranean Restaurant, Traditional
The ultrafresh Southern European fare here spans a gourmand’s gamut from Salmone al pepe rosa (pan-roasted salmon) to Medaglioni di vitello ai carciofi (grilled veal medallions with artichokes). The warm glow you feel comes from the friendly service, intimate setting, excellent wine list, and heavenly desserts.
