Award-winning chef Lydia Shire is known for pushing the envelope and creating an unrivaled culinary experience. Her Italian concept in Scampo follows suit. The restaurant pairs simple, rustic food, chic Italian design and a glorious open kitchen.

"We had not been for a while, and welcomed the changes to the menu, which tries to incorporate seasonal ingredients. Both of our entrees were very good. My wife had the duck and I had the rabbit pasta dish. The Brussels sprout side dish needed less maple syrup and more time in the oven. The roasted artichoke appetizer was not a hit. The outer leaves had the texture of cellulose and they were bitter. The charcuterie plate was somewhat unbalanced - too much liver mousse, too little sausage. Wine selection by the glass was very good. Service was attentive and seating was comfortable. We will be back."

Gordon and Fiona Hamersley have owned one of Boston's most popular restaurants for 20 years. Hamersley's Bistro serves contemporary, full-flavored French/Mediterranean food in a relaxed environment. Located in the fashionable South End, Hamersley's is adjacent to the Boston Center for the Arts and its' affiliated theaters and galleries. The historic brick building, which originally housed a piano factory, has been transformed into one of Boston's most comfortable dining atmospheres. The dining room has butter yellow walls, exposed beams and a view of the open kitchen so diners can watch the chefs work in their brightly colored baseball caps. There is also a cozy bar, where neighborhood regulars gather for food and drinks, as well as a large patio for casual summer dining.

"The food was very good, tasty and inventive. Service was attentive and the half-bottle collection was reasonable. I was not happy with where we were seated. Seating in restaurants is becoming as obscure and non-transparent as airline seating. There were quite a few empty tables for two, yet we were given very few rather uncomfortable choices. Is it the fact that we made reservations on OpenTable? Whom does one have to bribe or know to get a decent table in this town?"
