Amazing food in the North End. So many good restaurants there, but this one goes the extra mile. Great appetizers and the best eggplant parm I've ever had. Extensive wine list and good specialty cocktails. Attentive service. Get a table by the window if possible...More

We were celebrating our anniversary and the concierge called here to reserve a special table for us. It's the balcony -- table for 2 -- over the entrance door to the restaurant. So cool!! A unique and romantic experience. Food and wine were delicious.

One really can't go wrong at Tresca. Their marinara sauce is now one of my favorites in the North End. It's a mild sauce (not bland) with some chunky tomatoes. I had shrimp in a cream sauce and I'm not one for creamy sauces. In...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
