The food is amazing and prepared fresh for you. The service is outstanding and friendly. The place reminds you of Italy. You should definitely go if you want the best Italian food in the neighborhood.

We went here late night after a show, because thankfully they were still servicing food after 10pm. We had the lobster ravioli and the ragu...both were amazing and the service was great. We didn’t stick around for dessert, but that looked delicious too! Highly recommend...More

This place is the real deal. Located on Hanover Street, it is Boston’s first original trattoria. Service is attentive and prompt. This North End eatery has reasonably priced Italian foods cooked with seasonal ingredients. We had their appetizer of sautéed mussels in spicy garlic, tomatoes...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

There weren't any children there. I suggest you call and ask if they have one or if they possibly do half orders.

I am sorry but I cannot answer that question as my family doesn't have any food allergies for dairy and soy. I would recommend calling them. Great place.

I'm not sure how extensive the gluten-free choices are, but my husband was able to get a gluten-free pasta for the dish he ordered.
