Inspired by the traditional trattorias of Italy, this Back Bay restaurant features seasonal, authentic cuisine from James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Schlow. Seating is available in the lively bar area, the dim caffe adorned with tile mosaics, and the classic, white-walled dining room lined with colorful paintings. During warmer months, however, patrons should arrive early to snag a table on the flower-laden outdoor patio. In addition to specialty dishes like the spaghetti aglio olio con pomodoro (with garlic, olive oil, and tomatoes), visitors can also enjoy late night wine and pizza, served until 1 a.m. in the caffe.
