Outstanding restaurant for North Shore Boston, a dining wasteland. I'm giving it four starts because really good restaurants up here are a rarity. This is the real deal: genuine Italian refined dining with an very good wine list. Try the grilled octopus starter - yum. Handsome setting, personable servers, moderate prices for the quality: $8-ish for starters, $22 for entrees. I'd compare it to maybe a near-Bricco in the burbs without the buzz. RESERVE - YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.
