Walking around the streets are big fun crowds trying to get in the 100 Italian Restaurants and shops. Mike's Pastry's is legendary. Cafe Dolce restaurant is a favorite.

Is the Italian section of Boston. I highly recomend Neptune Oyster, simply excellent. There are also some mercatos and salumerias. Quaint. Nice to walk around. Also close to Haymarket

Beautiful old buildings. A slew of Italian restaurants each calling my name. They all looked clean and welcoming. Beautiful churches and parks in the area. It definitely deserves a day to enjoy it all. Reminded me of Little Italy in NYC but even better!

Makes me want to go to italy. Love the atmosphere and culture. Be aware of the brick areas and pavement, it can be uneven, this goes for all of the city.

Walking into the North End is like going back in time. Not just the older buildings but also the feeling of a close knit neighborhood, where everyone knows each other and looks after each other.

If you want to feel like visiting Italy, just come to the North End in Boston. Lots and lots of restaurants, bakeries and stores. A definite must to walk around, when in Boston.

A rich mixture of history, Italian food and the best cappuccino and cannoli I’ve ever had outside of Italy. Don’t miss this wonderful area. Most places cash only!

Being a history buff, I adored the North End. You really have to walk it to get the best experience. Trolleys and buses aren't allowed because the streets are so narrow, but it's worth the walk and the wonderful Italian restaurants.

Historic and atmospheric - interesting old buildings. Just stroll around and take in the sights, sounds and smells of Italy. I have never seen so many Italian restaurants crammed into such a small area - not even in Italy!!

There are so many historical things to see in the North End and also some of the best Italian food. You really can't go wrong with any of the tons of Italian restaurants that line the streets. Make reservations if you want a specific one!

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

I love the Harborside Inn, as it's a quick walk over there and a great location.
