Because the window still has the name of the previous tenant, we had difficulty finding this online. But we stumbled upon it and were thrilled they were able to accommodate us without a reservation. Salad was great, scallopini was excellent as was the pasta. Glad...More

Rude, table not ready and 30mins wait with reservation, and no apology or explanation . The waitress/hostess yelled at us to move outside as there was no room inside. Very unprofessional.

We made a reservation and arrived early as the staff were setting up for the evening. The staff were wonderful. They seated us and brought us bread and olives while we waited. Everyone in the party loved their meal. We were all surprised when the...More

Very small Italian restaurant next door to a popular restaurant in the North End. The food was amazing! They brought us a delicious appetizer for the table and tiramisu to end the night. It’s cash only FYI!

I can’t believe how great this meal was. The bread with olives and olive oil was delicious. The calamari was perfectly breaded with an aioli and marinara sauce. Let’s talk about the fra diavolo for a second. Perfectly spiced with a hint of heat and...More

Cozy intimate place but be ready for close quarters and noisy. No signage, next door to place with long line. Recommend reservations. We started off on the wrong foot with server/hostess but she warmed up as evening progressed. Our group of 4 ordered different entrees...More

Easily the best Italian in the North End. So good in fact that they don't even have their name above the entrance. It's small so reservations are recommended but you can wait outside if you want. The service was friendly and efficient. We ate linguine...More

This place is probably my favourite place in Boston to eat. Just adore the Diavolo sea food, mmmmmh! Service is attentive but takes no prisoners, if you're after swarmy go elsewhere. If you want fantastic Italian food come here!

Excellent food, wonderful service. Very small, so make reservations. Limited beer/wine menu. I believe they only accept cash. Pricey but worth it, you definitely get what you pay for.

Visited Boston recently and wanted to eat in North End. This restaurant was recommended and I wasn't disappointed. Service was impeccable and the food was incredibly good. I am Celiac and the restaurant went out of their way to be accommodating. They didn't have GF...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

Server gives it to you. We went with locals who knew it to be good, whatever the menu.
