I actually took the commuter rail to Waltham to meet my husband to try this place last night. It was worth the trip! Wow. This place holds its own against our favorite city establishments! We sat on the patio, which was lovely and romantic, despite the fact that busy Moody Street is on the other side of the enclosing fence. I had a delicious pan seared foie gras in phyllo with a "port wine and orange reduction and drizzle of gorgonzola crema" for an appetizer. Wine list is impressive. The chef hand-delivered complimentary pasta courses between our appetizer and entree- the most amazing gnocchi with wild mushrooms and white truffle oil: to die for. I think this was the best pasta I've had in the greater Boston area; honestly, it put the North End to shame. Entrees were equally delicious. I had the duck (apricot and pear brandy sauce), which stands up with pride to my favorite duck, at Salts. I highly recommend this place. Worth the trip from the city to the 'burbs! We'll be back.
