Chef Justin Limburg opened this Beacon Hill spot, tucked into a row of antiques and vintage shops, late last year, with a mostly Italian menu of sandwiches, pastas, and pizzas, all with carefully sourced ingredients. The crispy skin salmon is cooked perfectly and beautifully plated on a bed of artichokes and spaghetti; the rolled lasagna (meaty or vegetarian) with three cheeses is worth Instagramming; salads are simple and satisfying. A gluten-free pizza of fig jam, prosciutto, and arugula on a cauliflower crust is made to order and tastes as good as the one on the lightly charred, in-house-fermented sourdough crust. The cozy L-shaped dining room (mostly booths) wraps around an open kitchen with a little bar area in the front. You’ll get a friendly greeting when you walk in and likely a table-side visit from the chef too.
