Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars
Boston’s first Venetian-style osteria and wine bar, SRV (“Serene Republic of Venice”) balances its focus between modern interpretations of Venetian cicchetti (small plates) and spectacular pastas. The restaurant is located near the corner of Columbus and Mass Ave, making it a popular option for pre-theatre crowds. Creative small plates elevate fresh ingredients, with flavors that pop thanks to microgreens and garnishes grown nearby. An assortment of luxurious pasta dishes keep regulars coming back for more; the kitchen mills its pasta flour in-house, using organic durum wheat berries. Adventurous groups can opt for the Arsenale menu, which puts the entire table in the hands of the kitchen. An exclusively Italian wine list complements the menu, and those looking for something stronger can opt for Italian-influenced cocktails.
