This is a great Italian option outside the north end. It's also very close to fenway but not the crowds. Try the spinach gnocchi, done sort of like a carbonara, and sit outside if the weather is nice.

My family go to the restaurant before most red sox games. The food is reasonable in price, consistently good , and there is both inside and outside seating. It is a hidden jewel of a restaurant near Fenway park.

Set in a cute neighborhood just blocks from Fenway park, we really enjoyed this place. It has both outdoor and indoor seating. We chose outdoor, given the 80 degree temperature that day. They have very good pizza, and good service. We were very happy with...More

We like to eat here before the Red Sox games. It is within a short walking distance to Fenway Park on a residential side street. Very relaxing atmosphere...nice and clean and good food and service.

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign
is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the
city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports
