Great spot away from the tourist trap type restaurants. A little pricey but well worth it. The owner is very charming.

Just happened by but would definitely return. Good food at reasonable prices. Small storefront place only 20 seats and no restroom. Had fruit decided mare seafood pasta. Huge portion. Excellent service.

The subs were excellent - enough for 2 persons. 12^ long. Service was excellent and polite. Small place. Clean. The pastas were great too. Smaller portion.

Hole in the wall (but AC'ed) gem. BEST sandwiches in the North End. Personal favorite is the grilled chicken parm, but honestly everything is delicious. Serving sizes are large, bring a friend!

We asked the Boston police officer where to get a sandwich and he pointed to Dino's. He was right! Happy with everything from pasta to sandwiches. Everything is excellent...every time. Really small seating so time your visit.

The pasta is absolutely amazing! The person (the owner possibly?)​ who waited on us was so friendly and accommodating. We were told the pastas can be customized because they are when ordered. I ordered the sausage and peppers Linguine and asked to have it made...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
