This was easily our best meal while visiting Boston, and perhaps my favorite meal in many, many months! The food was fabulous - my husband had the cioppino, which was out of this world and large enough to feed a family of 4. I had...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

We are staying in Boston tonight before a flight home in the morning. Is this a comfortable place for a well behaved 9 year old? Thank you.

Yes, if he's well behaved. He may feel special being in a restaurant with lots of adults.
I've found the address, but not the restaurant's phone #. Why doesn't it show next to the address?
