On a recommendation we went with 3 couples. Reservation honored no issue. Owner was out and about but really only paid attention to regulars and like someone else said he was a bit loud. Our dinners were excellent as was the wine selection. We had...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.

We were in Boston on the way back to Seattle and hoped for an Italian dinner. We happened upon this amazing place. As we walked up, the owner had kicked out some drunk and disrespectful people. I applauded him for not tolerating bad behavior. We...More

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
