  • Great place to slurp down an oyster.The raw bar is the focus (and is fantastic), but don't overlook the pasta dishes.
  • Great oysters here!
  • The food and ambiance were terrific! Great hidden gem in the North End. The only reason it doesn't get a full five stars was because out service was definitely a little spotty.
  • Good seafood.
  • Food is pretty delicious, but portions are a bit small. Order a handful of oysters. The Tagliatelli con Aragosta is nice, but I was more jealous of someone at my table who ordered the Risotto di Mare.
  • The crab cake for an appetizer is amazing! The truffle encrusted tuna A-MAZING! This place is pricey, but good.
  • Warning: they do the old sparkling or still water trick, and conveniently forget to mention free tap water as an option
  • Mare mojito! perfect after dinner drink.
  • The seafood tower fantastic with various sampling of raw seafood (and cooked lobster) excellent taste!!!
  • Great selection of oysters; the risotto is good but not awesome
  • Came here for Dine Out Boston and was unimpressed. The only highlight was their calamari, which wasn't chewy at all! So soft and the fried batter skin wasn't too thick.
  • Unreal oysters and jumbo shrimp
  • get the risotto. it looks like not very much food but they give you more than you'd expect
  • small, intimate venue. lots of oysters to choose from
  • Awesome oyster
  • Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Panizzi
  • Get the oysters, lemon pasta and seafood cannelloni. Yum yum yum
  • Gianni Caruso, chef of Bricco, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Polenta & clams.
  • Huge selection of oysters and amazing lobster. Great restaurant.
  • Octopus yum yum
