The owner Peno is the best! He will sit with you, drink wine with you and even sing for you! I was there in Oct 2016 with several colleagues. There were other customers there that were just as friendly and was even sharing their food...More

My meal (veal parmigiana) was delicious, hot and fresh Pino's warm welcome and the selection of traditional Italian dinners are highlights. You'd feel like you were eating in Naples.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
