The Zagat Review
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.
What To Order
Sunday through Thursday, enjoy one cocktail and one item from the Mozzarella Bar for $24.
