My business colleague recommended this spot, as it's one of her favorites in the North End (which is saying a lot). Surprisingly empty at around 7 PM on a Tuesday but it filled up quite a bit before we left. Wine and bread were delicious (I had the Sangiovese). We shared Mama's Meatballs for an appetizer. Tasty but could have... More

Everything was amazing! Our server was awesome! The food was fantastic! We couldn't manage any dessert, but we loved every bite! We started with a meatball appetizer special -- wonderful! For entrees, we had lasagna and lobster ravioli. Everyone enjoyed everything we got. Entrees were about $20-30. We would go again in a heartbeat!

We started with meatballs and caprese salad and the best Chianti we ever tasted. Rosette Limoncello, chicken piccata, chicken Parma., calamari and awesome bread,- all were wonderful. The service moved right along but we didn't,t feel rushed. The place was packed and noisy with some large parties all having a wonderful time. We had a lemon ice and limoncello and... More

We stopped in for a late lunch around 2:00. I was surprised that the lunch menu on their website was not available. The food was fantastic. Portions more than reasonable without over stuffing. Unfortunately even at the slow hour with just an handful of table our waiter was slow to take our order and all but disappeared after we were... More

I called for a reservation and was offered 4pm or 8pm. This was another indication of how popular and busy this place is. The owner recognized the dial code and was knowledgeable about my island. He made me feel welcome on the phone even before we'd arrived. I advised him that my son was in a wheelchair and he said... More

Restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Loved the meatball appetizer but it was pricy atb$18 for 3 meatballs. Domestic beer was $8 a bottle. Veal piccata was ok but brocollirab side was very bitter. Chicken with ham and sage sauce was very tough and dry. Overall disappointed.

Went to Boston with colleagues on a business trip. Asked the concierge desk for a good Italian restaurant within walking distance from the hotel. Suggested Limoncello and we were not disappointed. We ordered the meatballs as an appetizer - good sized and very moist. I ordered the Veal Saltimbocca with a side of penne - the veal was very tender... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
