Right off the bat, the staff was very pleasant, even though my friend and I went in fairly late at night close to closing time. We never felt rushed. The food was quickly prepared and was very good. The bread and oil was brought right at the beginning with our drinks and was fresh and tasty. Not Your Average Joe's will appeal to all ages, and seems like a fun place to meet for a drink or dinner date, or to watch the Sox game at their bar. Easy to get to on Mass Ave, this is definitely reccomended!
