Started off with the mushroom truffle ravioli special which was rich, decadent and delightful. One of us had the veal Marsala which had great flavor and was a generous portion. I had the veal Fagottini which was good but not exactly what Fagottini is supposed...More

Dined here the night before the marathon and it was fair to say they were busy! Yet the service was excellent as was the food and they didn’t rush us. The team works like a well oiled machine!

Went there with friends for dinner and drinks, everything was excellent, the food and service. The waiters personality only increased an excellent dinner. Could not have asked for better.

While this restaurant clearly plays up the prototypical "mob-like" Italian restaurant atmosphere (there are 5 screens that play the most popular Mafia movies on a loop), it delivers the goods when it comes to food and service. Our waiter was candid and helpful in our...More

This is a great little restaurant in the heart of the North End. Extensive menu with many options. Recommend the meatball appetizer-delicious! Service is excellent and were very cognizant of the show we were attending after dinner and assuring we were on time.

Popped in here for dinner, nice, friendly atmosphere, I wished I had only ordered the main course as the portions were large. I had a meatball for starters and Calabrisella chicken for main very tasty and good, chatty staff, excellent service.

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

There's street parking but you would have to pay for that. If you can take local transportation it's much easier
