A cozy spot for great Italian food. Delicious specials! We went pretty early and almost had the place to ourselves for the first little while, but it filled up by the time we were done.

Good food at good prices especially for that area. if you are going for lunch there is always a good chance you sit right away, but for Friday or Saturday make reservation.

Most people who go to the North End never venture off Hanover Street. La Summa is a restaurant worth finding as it's a small family owned restaurant that makes yummy homemade pasta and serves up good portions and reasonable prices. I've eaten here a few...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
