We were here for a couples night-out recently. Service was excellent, and the food was very good. It wasn't the best Italian we've ever had, but definitely good portions, and fresh. We found the arugula salad to be very good, but a bit heavy on...More

Our first day in Boston, as we were walking the Freedom Trail, we saw this place. We didn't even realize we were walking past a restaurant until glancing in the kitchen window and seeing a man prepping eggplant for eggplant parmesan. We watched for a...More

Yes, us tourists wandered the Freedom Trail today, stopped at 1700 hrs for a break, and got our fill of the local vibe. Cocktails, vino are top notch, well mixed. Got in on the local gossip sitting at the bar, and the fellas were happy...More

I have always liked this restaurant but no more. We were brought bread with olive oil that was obviously no grade and with no spices. Just plain old olive oul. Barely edible. No specials on a Saturday night and only two pastas from which to...More

The place is very small and waiting for a table is customary; we got a bottle of wine at the bar and we went to our table in about ten minutes. The server, Megan was okay. The "gravy" on the pasta was literally just tomato...More

There were so many restaurants to choose from in the North End of Boston, but what compelled us to walk into this one was that it was a small, sidewalk open-air cafe. It was a Friday night but luckily we were early enough to catch...More

Decided to go out for lunch in the North End on a rainy Columbus Day. No reservations just looking at menus and maybe go to one of our favorites. Florentine Cafe had a table for two at an open window and Natalia was nice enough...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
