We visited Pellino’s recently and it has a nice homely feel to it with a promise of home made pasta. The food was very good, however there were simple things that hampered the experience. One of our party has an allergy to onions and despite...More

We went to Pellino's after a 3-hour book signing event across the street - after which we were starved! The service was quick. My son had a simple, yet perfect pasta dish and my chicken cacciatore was excellent. Would recommend this spot anytime!

So good. The service was great, along with the food. We had a great visit. My father in law had a lamb and pasta dish that was incredible. The lobster ravioli was also great. Great people.

We had a Groupon for $69 that was for two appetizers, two entrees, and two desserts. That was a great value, but even if we had paid full price the quality of the food was well worth it. Pellino's is a small charming restaurant, and...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
