    Very expensive. Pasta was undercooked and the sauce too sour.

    If you're unlucky to end up with a cold in Boston, you just need to mention it to the bartenders downstairs at Drink and they will fix you a cocktail to heal both your sore throat and your spirit.

    Looks like a space age diner, white and shiny, with U-shaped counters and stools. But tastes like a fine Italian cafe, with dishes such as ricotta gnudi and strozzapreti with rabbit and green olives. Read more
