A "divine food experience" awaits at this "true foodie" "icon" in Melrose from Mario Batali and Nancy Silverton, whose "superb" pastas and other "extraordinary" Italian fare "live up to all the hype" ; yes, the tabs are "expensive" and the "classic" setting overseen by a "serious" staff is "noisy as hell" , but it's "one of those few places actually worth" it; P.S. it's "still impossible to get into" , though walk-ins can try for a seat at the mozzarella bar.

Amazing everything: staff, ambiance, food, wine. There is a mozzarella bar in the center with great options. This and the rest of the food feels like it has had the extra amount of care put into it that made it a special experience. We had the squid ink pasta with crab and sea urchin, was well as the honey and sage roasted quail. Both recommended. As the waiter said: "There are no specials tonight because everything is special."

Unfortunately I was very disappointed in the seafood quality. We ordered octopus and my daughter had a yellowtail entree. Both tasted like they weren't fresh. Maybe many like the taste, but having been used to fresh seafood, I couldn't eat either, both obviously having been frozen. My daughter was fine to eat the fish. We returned the octopus, I've never returned a dish in my life. It wasn't edible to my palate ( I've eaten alot of octopus!). The waiter was really mannered and helpful, and I was relieved that they weren't upset by my dissatisfaction. And in fact, chose not to charge me for the octopus. I did not ask. On the contrary, the pasta was amazing, I highly recommend it. It'll be at the top of any pasta you've eaten or made with your own dough. Great selection of meat toppings. They're renowned for their wine list. Will return for pasta.
