One of the best restaurants in the north end. Food is consistently exceptional, regardless of what you order. Service is friendly. Can get a little noisy on a crowded night

I've been here many times. Love the great Italian food!! I'm never disappointed with anything I order and my last visit was no exception. The meatballs were amazing and the spinach cheese manicotti delicious and comforting the other day!!

Happened upon this spot and decided to eat dinner. It was pretty good food and the wait staff was amiable. All I wanted was grilled chicken and veggies, but didn't see that on the menu. The waiter said it wasn't a problem and brought me...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
