Cinquecento Roman Trattoria is a comfortable, energetic and inviting restaurant reminiscent of the neighborhood trattorias found in Rome. A spot that is perfect for a spontaneous night out, a special occasion or as your go-to spot for dinner and brunch. A perfect meeting place for all, as we offer complimentary parking in our adjacent lot. Located in the South End of Boston, Cinquecento offers a menu steeped in the Roman tradition of simplicity custom and comfort. We offer an extensive all Italian wine list, award winning cocktails, a secluded out door patio and a private dinning room. Enjoy Roman and Italian inspired cuisine described as "true to the Roman Style, simple dishes perfectly done" all served in a dining room like no other in Boston.

"Staff is always friendly and food is consistently good. Outside dining is lovely and all are accepting of the dogs who attend as well- behaved always!! Octupus is great, mussels in great broth. The trout is really good- and the fish in parchment- always a crowd pleaser.
Wine list is varied and affordable. Parking is a plus.

Legal Oysteria is a casual neighborhood restaurant serving coastal Italian-style seafood. Executive Chef Rich Vellante developed a menu based on the food he cooks at home for family and friends.<br /> <br />Legal Oysteria’s menu showcases the freshness and purity of its seafood offerings and other ingredients. Preparations are simple and authentic. A brick oven (with pizza oven and rotisserie) informs the menu. There are options for those who choose to table share or prefer more traditional coursed dining. Our bar program was designed to complement the cuisine. The all Mediterranean wine list is heavily focused on Italy and Spain and the cocktail program highlights the beautiful wine, vermouth, chinato and amaro of Italy and beyond.<br /> <br />By tradition, an osteria is casual, comfortable and accessible and Legal Oysteria aspires to afford that same experience.

"Food as always from a Legal restaurant was fresh and delicious. Fried oysters a must try! Charred octopus was done just right. Prices are reasonable to build a neighborhood clientele . It was open less than a week when I went with 2 friends . Waited too long for someone to approach. Had to ask for a waitress to take a drink order. Manager did come over - wanted feedback - nice touch. Fisherman stew was full of shrimp and fresh fish. Whole fish of the day a hit too. Bar was packed. And when the waitress heard it was my birthday- dessert was on her!! They will work out timing kinks I am sure. The noise level was an issue when it was Olives and it still is REALLY loud and difficult to have a conversation."

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. Enjoy ocean-side dining just steps from the New England Aquarium. Our restaurant couldn’t be more convenient to the Financial District, Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall and waterfront hotels. We think a visit to Boston must include a meal at Legal Sea Foods. <br /> <br />We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

"Brought a group of 10 family members from out of town- tried chowder, oysters and clams for first time. Lobster was awesome and Katie our awesome waitress helped us crack them. Kids all enjoyed and portions were nice sized for older kids too.
It was a gross rainy evening and the staff accomodated a change in time for resi for a party of 11- with no problem or wait- so appreciated.
Douglas the manager was awesome!!!!
