Everything about this upscale Italian spot is oversized, from its space near Copley Square to its portions. The sexy, all-white dining room is filled with well-heeled locals (some live in the gorgeous apartment building above it) who come for the modern twist on basic Italian dishes. Grilled octopus with squid-ink couscous, various versions of carpaccio, and the signature tuna tartare dot the list of starters, while veal saltimbocca with wild mushrooms and truffled whipped potato takes the spotlight. Just save room for dessert: it's always a highlight here.

First rate upscale and creative Italian food in a swanky and spotless space. Pleasant service. A bit expensive and can offer small portions for the money, but one of the best Italian options outside the North End.
