Arrived at 8:00 for our reservation . We were served a glass of wine immediately. Next some olives and bread came out along with our entrees. By 8:37 our waiter was hovering and wanting to know if I wanted a box! The food is fine,...More

While wandering around Boston, we were lucky enough to get a table at Limoncello. The staff was outstanding, knowledgeable about their menu and friendly. The food was amazing and would go back in a heartbeat!

We were so surprised by the Meatballs - loved them and our dining experience. Also really appreciated the delicious bread and olives to start.

I enjoyed a lasagna with freshly-made pasta and quality meat filling. Another in our party had the ravioli and was equally satisfied. We all tasted their meatballs, which were as big as tennis balls, moist and flavorful. All enjoyed!

We went for early dinner without reservation and we were immediately sited in front of the entrance. This was a good start as other recommended north end restaurants will not accept you without a reservation. Service was superb with immediate water, excellent bread cheese and...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
