As a Boston native, this is the only place I'll go for a home cooked meal. Absolutely fantastic meal for a decent price. The canoli for desert is an absolute MUST!

Italian Express has the best Italian food in Boston - forget the North End. Come for the pizza, chicken parm, and homemade fettuccine. The owners are extraordinarily nice, the service is great, and the food is tasty.
