The service was good, the ambience was nice, the food average.Pasta was good but neither me nor my wife liked the chicken in the pasta (a little tough and not cut up)

Very disappointing. It was not busy. This should have been my first clue. We always like to try a new restaurant in the north end. Usually you can't go wrong. When we were in the area last week, we chose another restaurant and it was...More

We had a great experience at Pellino's. The owner greeted us at the door and took time to answer our questions. The service provided by all the staff was superb! It was the best Italian food we have eaten. We highly recommend this restaurant in...More

I was disappointed of the food quality- pasta was dry, I would have made it much better myself at home. Seafood didn't taste the freshest either. Both, mine and my husband's entrees were not great and won't be coming back.

Just off the main street of little Italy in Prince street but was able to get a table quickly. Choice of pasta, seafood and veal was great. Service ok and the meals were promptly served. Would certainly go back.

Bruschetta was good and fresh. Pleasant grilled bread and decent tomatoes for July. Adequate but not life changing. Pesto gnocchi was meh. Sauce creamy rather than oily and gnocchi gummy. Kids ordered plain ziti and got plain spaghetti. Not worth sending back. Otherwise service was...More

My husband and I did not want to wait in line on a Saturday evening in Little Italy so we decided to try Pellino's on a side street and got in right away. The service was excellent. The mushroom ravioli was delicious. The caprese salad...More

We ended up here after encountering long waits at some of the more popular restaurants. My eggplant & Limoncello martini were delicious! The waiter was very attentive. The whole family enjoyed our dinner in the North End.

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
