We found this place after having to decide between one of the million restaurants in Little Italy...glad we did, they have lunch specials for under $10 which is great in the city. We were seated and served immediately, food was hot and flavorful, portions were...More

Classic. This is not tweezerfood. You will not find kale massaged with anything. Their tripe lunch special probably isn't going to be featured on the Food Network tomorrow. They don't need any of that. We've been coming here for over 10 years, and we'll keep...More

Spending the day in the North End doing lots of walking and some sight seeing stops. We were actually booked for a dinner in the North End so we’re just going to stop by Maria’s or Modern for a pastry snack. In pursuit of this...More

Food was amazing and great prices! Anthony, the owner was chatty and friendly guy. Very personable. My husband and I had a delicious lunch. Nice to know a family ran business can be so personable with their customers. Highly recommend Bella Vista.

We ate here 13 years ago and had always hoped to return some day. Having read some of the more recent reviews, I was a bit concerned. We had dinner here and it was every bit as good as we remembered. Lucia, the owner, cheerily...More

There are too many places to eat in the North End to eat here. Pros: Great spaghetti with clams Cons: Service not friendly. And not in a "part of the schtick" fashion, but more like "I'm tired and I want you to hurry up" I...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
