For most of us, this was not the first time we'd eaten at this restaurant. My wife, who had never been, still can't believe how delicious her meal was. I have been to the restaurant between 4 and 5 times with the food being consistently...More

You will not be disappointed with this restaurant's menu range and outstanding food preparation. Note, however, they serve only pricey bottled water (no tap). If you are thirsty, it is easy to consume $25+ in water. Also, if your party is 6 or more, the...More

The food here was acceptable, but a long way from good. Our waitress did her best to ruin our dinner. It was very obvious she was only interested in getting us in, shoving the food on us as fast as possible, getting her tip and...More

This is a great, very reasonably priced spot that provides more authenticity and more of a homey feeling than the majority of modern spots on nearby Hanover Street. I've been here a number of times, but opted in again on a visit to Boston where...More

Food was outstanding. Service was attentive for a very busy Saturday night. Made a reservation and glad I did. Had the veal chop special which was perfectly prepared. Only downside was the lack of a kids menu or kids offering. Although, the kids liked the...More

We had eaten at Il Panino before and enjoyed it. We arrived Saturday nite 10/18/08 at 6:45, without a reservation, and asked if we could be seated. We were told by hostess Maria that it would be "a little over 30 minutes". Two hours later...More

I used to love this place; the food, the atmosphere and was really loving they now have outdoor dining. But the fact you can't get tap water, the service is down right rude and if you sit outdoors anything you drink is warm makes me...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

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.
