We went to Boston for the weekend to visit a friend. He lives in the N end and took us to Aria for dinner on Sunday night. Loved the cozy atmosphere, and our meal was delicious!

Finding a restaurant on the North End is rather easy. Almost every one we've ever been to have been fantastic. Therefore, rating just one who stands out amongst the crowd of all stars is not easy. Until now! Arian Trattoria has that family "Sunday dinner"...More

I was expecting gruff non-service, based on reviews of other North End restaurants. Perhaps because I was the first customer that evening, I was waited on by the owner/manager himself! He chatted with me about the menu and the wine list, told me he came...More

Such a lovely meal. Fresh, home-cooked food, delicious wine and warm and friendly service. I had figs with goats cheese and ham to start, followed by swordfish and risotto. Delicious wine. A perfect family evening.

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
