We happened upon Aria Trattoria due to rave reviews on Trip Advisor & Boston mag. We were greeted & seated by the owner. Very gracious host. We had the Fare un Viaggio. Fabulous. Every single dish. The wine pairing was perfect. We felt as though...More

Finding a restaurant on the North End is rather easy. Almost every one we've ever been to have been fantastic. Therefore, rating just one who stands out amongst the crowd of all stars is not easy. Until now! Arian Trattoria has that family "Sunday dinner"...More

I normally frequent steak or seafood restaurants but this Italian restaurant impressed me. We had a party of about 12 and was up stairs overlooking Hanover street. The owner came out and we let him order. Every thing from a variety of appetizers to a...More

I was expecting gruff non-service, based on reviews of other North End restaurants. Perhaps because I was the first customer that evening, I was waited on by the owner/manager himself! He chatted with me about the menu and the wine list, told me he came...More

Such a lovely meal. Fresh, home-cooked food, delicious wine and warm and friendly service. I had figs with goats cheese and ham to start, followed by swordfish and risotto. Delicious wine. A perfect family evening.

Small, cozy, charming place up on the second floor, away from the Hanover Street hustle. Our salad, fish, and pasta were perfectly prepared. Service is very good. Reservation nearly always required. We'll definitely be back!

Aria Trattoria is hidden up on the 2nd floor of a building in the North End. The dining area is not big, and we were glad we had made a reservation. We shared a starter of their signature meat balls in tomato sauce. That was...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
