    Booked for restaurant week. We had both been to the restaurant before although my friend had visited a different location. Shannon was awesome, great service with a smile. It was very noisy and not easy to carry on a conversation since the restaurant was understandably full

    Ryan the bartender is amazing - so personable and attentive! Love their eggplant parmesan app. Out of this world - the eggplant is sliced very thin and the flavor just seeps through. I always ask for a side of ricotta ~ Love the italian music they play throughout the venue. :) Overall it's a hidden gem!

    Great service after a mix up about seating another group outside, even though we were first. Very pleasant female server, bread as usual was yummy. Mixed on the food, the chicken parm which had previously been crispy, was thicker chicken and was different than our two husband's expected. My branzino was terrific, very fresh and tasty. My friend's pasta as so so. Nice ambiance outside but at some point very loud music started, but it was turned down after we complained. Hoping for a better experience next time.

    Jam packed on a Wednesday night! Interesting Italian menu with some unusual and delicious dishes. The Caesar salad promised an anchovy - the mark of a "real" Caesar salad - but it was missing. Oh well. Next time I'll have a different type of salad as the food is worth another trip.

    We are visiting our daughter, son-in-law-law, and first grandson in West Roxbury/Dedham. Ours was a party of 4 adults and a 4-month-old in a stroller. I alerted the restaurant to this in the Open Table special requests section. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Everyone from the server (Katie was delightful!) to the sommelier to the manager were so positive and cheerful. The food and wine were excellent. We felt like special guests. We’ll be back!

    The table was set up with a cute sign with rose petals for our anniversary. The bread was tasty and we got the mussels for an appetizer which had a delicious sauce. The meals weren’t bad. I got the shrimp pasta special and it had little to no sauce which made it dry. My bf got the short rib gnocchi which had very little short rib but he still enjoyed the dish. They gave us a free dessert because of our anniversary which was a nice touch!

    My husband and I were here for dinner at Il Massimo in Dedham on a Friday night. We both ordered haddock which was one of the chef’s specials. It was served over sautéed spinach, a latke-like potato cake and a creamy, buttery to die for mushroom sauce. Everything was cooked perfectly. I don’t think we took a bite without commenting how delicious it was. Wonderful gourmet meal with complements to the chef. We would also like to give a shout-out to our server Olivia. Gracious, professional, and knowledgeable. Her wine descriptions were right on the money. Service was impeccable and we enjoyed bantering with Olivia. She is a gem.

    Cannot recommend more. Food was incredible but the service is what set things over the top. Extremely attentive without making you feel like they were rushing you. The manager was even walking around checking on everyone and refilling waters. Our server Olivia was impeccable! The shrimp and risotto was phenomenal, the chicken parm was awesome and the short rib gnocchi was so fresh and flavorful
