Cinquecento

They call themselves a Roman Trattoria. Roman, Italian, whatever, it's good stuff, with only a little South End pretension instead of the North End annoyances.

They have a great whiskey selection. Ask the bartender for a recommendation - he might just give you a few samples :]



Octopus: Truly good. Like in Mexico City except the accompaniments weren't quite as good.

Burrata: great, not amazing

Gnocchi Bolognese: awesome

Steak: good, not amazing
 I'm told that next time I should save room for a chocolate dessert to pair with their port.
