Best of Boston

2016 Best Romantic Restaurant


This lovable Porter Square trattoria specializes in subtlety, right down to its dim lighting, intimate ambiance, and exposed-brick walls. The straightforward dishes—delicate house-made gelato and hand-rolled pastas with simple sauces, almost all available with a dusting of shaved truffles—are best accompanied by one of the restaurant’s dozens of regional wines.
