  1. I think it is a wonderful idea Gianni & Donato are taking over Davide, especially since the food has
    never been as good from when they first opened and Angelo who now has Donatello’s in Saugus
    had it. I understand that they want to have a bar & entertainment. If rules are made that they have
    to order food at the bar in order to sit at the bar, that won’t be bad, but if they make it a bar that
    you can drink & not eat we are in for far more noise problems. I love entertainment, but let us
    take in consideration the people that live above the restaurant and how it will effect their quality of
    life. The problem with the North End is people complain about noise & all these committees are
    giving them the okay to have more liquor licenses, entertainment, etc. and then you want to
    complain to the Police after the committees and the City, are giving the okay, not taking in
    consideration for residents. The City is already at an all time REVENUE HIGH, they have to
    stop being so greedy, the area is less than 1/2 mile sq. radius and there are far too many
    restaurants & bars for the size of the neighborhood and the quality of life keeps on dwindling.
    It is only normal for restaurant owners to want bars, entertainment, etc. but the residents have
    been taking a beaten for far too long. I wish Gianni & Donato the very best of luck, but never,
    ever at any residents’ expense. ALSO, most restaurant & bar owners do not live directly
    over their establishments, they either live in the Burbs or in the North End far away from the
    noise. We have more than enough noise in the No. End & now you want to extend the noise
    to the Waterfront, it is not fair to residents or the Police Dept., who at this time can’t control
    what is going on in the No. End now. Good Luck & God Bless Gianni & Donato, but please think of the
    residents, especially since none of these other establishments & the City have not.
