While the food was excellent, we found employees to be very rude and unaccommodating. While our party of 4 waited in the cold for a table (as we expected since they don't take reservations), there were three women waiting ahead of us. One of the...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
