    Must eat: Potato Gnocchi. It's a would-be humble dish of potato pasta, mushroom ragu and peas, if not for the luxurious addition of juicy lobster. We’re not complaining. Read more

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

    The Strozzapreti was the best pasta dish I've had in Boston. 4 ingredients and all are balanced, yet highlighted to perfection.

    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.

    Our dream dinner party features one course with a tasting of all of Barbara Lynch’s pastas…with at least two bowls of the Strozzapretti. Don’t miss the Banana Panna Cotta.

    You have to have the Spicy Tomato Soup, no matter how hot it is outside. It is amazing. Ditto the Tagliatelle (with a bolognese). Service is excellent.

    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
