In a neighborhood known for Italian food, it did not disappoint! I got the Veal Parmigiana and it was off the charts. The red sauce was amazing. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and great service. Highly recommend!

Not worth a visit. Called to confirm reservation and host was so rude. No reason to go given the wealth of excellent restaurants in the area.

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
