We stopped in for lunch. There were 9 of us and everyone loved their meal. My favourite was the spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce was delicious. Two people ordered the gnocchi and raved about the creamy texture. The pizza was delicious. The Caesar salad was...More

Locate on Hanover street in Boston North End, very difficult to find a parking space. But I was lucky. Better to take uber/lyft there instead of driving. Food taste delicious. Friendly staff. Will come back again

My wife and I had lobster ravioli and butternut squash ravioli. To say it was really good does a disservice to just HOW good it was! Wow! Certainly the best I've had and I travel the country on a weekly basis. Must go!

My husband and I arrived just as the restaurant was opening so were seated at a prime window seat, open to the beautiful August weather. Our meal was delicious, the people watching was very fun and the ambience was pure Italian. They have an extensive...More

How to pick a restaurant on Saturday night in Boston when you’re a tourist. At random is not the best way but with no recommendations or reservations it was the only way we had. We had passed The Florentine while sight seeing and thought it...More

The hostess refused to seat me. At 4:30, there were many people sitting at tables eating appetizers and having drinks. I asked to be seated at one of the vacant tables and was told that the kitchen was not open. As I looked at the...More

In a neighborhood of many Italian restaurants this is one that stands out for quality. The veal chop was superb and the shrimp scampi really good. The service was mediocre at best so the rating fell. Note: Wine list adequate. Pours were good. Good choice.

There are so many Italian restaurants to choose from in the North End! We ended up here as it was the first one that could accommodate us without a wait. We were seated near one of the open windows on a nice, cool evening. We...More

Seriously the most delicious food, and espresso martinis! Went back here just for the lobster ravioli and it was just as good as I remembered...will go back every chance I get. Get a window seat!

We were in Boston for a day, and did the usual tourist things like the Freedom Trail. We were dead tired with blisters on the feet from all the walking, when it was time for dinner. We would have and could have eaten at any...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
