Nestled among the antique shops, boutiques and cafes along Beacon Hill's famous Charles Street, Toscano restaurant remains a staple of Boston's oldest neighborhood.

"Old brick, beautiful streetscape, inventive and delicious Italian food -- this restaurant is a gem. It looks out on one of the prettiest streets in old Boston. Inside is gorgeous exposed brick and dark wood. Staff were friendly and attentive; out waiter was funny, to boot. Menu is extensive, and still there were daily specials. The ravioli with shrimp is yummy. The pizzas are generous single serving. Highly recommend the blueberry and white chocolate dessert! We'll be back to try more dishes. Bonus -- restrooms are dazzling and very clean."

Charles Draghi and Joan Johnson's highly acclaimed contemporary Italian restaurant and wine bar. With Charles' simple, ever changing menus, rooted in traditional regional Italian cooking,and the best seasonal local ingredients. This restaurant has won numerous awards and kudos from critics, and many dedicated customers. Along side the Italian menus are equally lauded, all Italian wine lists, comprised of rare and traditional village wines. Joan has created the inviting ambiance of erbaluce, which is lovely, simply elegant, and romantic- recalling the classic trattorias of Northern Italy. The enoteca/wine bar is a cozy and lively meeting place, with its own menu of simple plates and a fun cordials cocktail list. Joan's welcoming presence in the dining room, along with Charles' inventive cuisine and rare wine offerings, make an evening at erbaluce a truly wonderful and unique dining experience.

"Restaurant was a great find, tucked away near the theater district. Cozy atmosphere and top notch service. Not a huge menu, but is augmented by a sizable list of chef's specials of the day. Food is Italian with a French twist. My party of 5 tried many dishes -- all were delicious and beautifully prepared and presented. Local calamari is a must-try. We shared a couple of pasta dishes, then each had a main course. The lobster special was elegant and delicious. There's an extensive Italian wine list. We were too full for dessert although the hostess brought fresh-roasted chestnuts, chocolate, and their house-made torrone. Very, very good! We'll be back."
