Fodor's Review

The soothing sage and yolk-yellow dining room and its bar have drifted back to their Italian beginnings under the deft helm of chef-owner Jody Adams, one of Boston's most admired kitchen wizards (see Trade), who uses the freshest New England ingredients to prepare her delicate, yet deeply-flavored food. While a few signature favorites remain, such as the fisherman's soup and slow-roasted duck (so beloved it inspired one smitten diner to write Adams a poem), her composed salads, pillowy pastas, and entrées, along with a regional Italian menu (that changes every two months) never disappoint. A comprehensive list of Allergy Menus is available for those wishing to avoid alcohol, dairy, gluten, nuts, and animal products.
