The North End has the best Italian food -you will feel like you are actually eating in Italy (Try Picollos Nedo or Lemoncellos or the Union Oyster House which is the oldest restaurant in the USA still in operation for great seafood and some history as well). And wonderful Italian Pastry shops (Mike's Pastry or The Modern Bakery) where you... More

During a city tour and coming back from the airport I had the chance of passing by the neighborhood. It's stylish and when in Boston you really have to see all around you. I loved the architecture and the housing different styles. Definitely worth a visit.

Of all the pizza I've tried in the North End I have no complaints. I highly recommend stopping by deli and picking up some salami and cheese! I wondered upon this area after exploring the Freedom Trail, starting in China town, it was worth the walk and so much fun!

If you can't find something you like to eat in The North send, you won't find it anywhere. Varied establishments with mostly .italian and many others mixed in. A visit to Mikes is a must!

The North End (little Italy) of Boston has so much to see and do. Great Restaurants, sightseeing, historical area and a lot of fun! In the summer there are Italian Festivals on some weekends. If you visit Boston, the North End is a must visit location. Northendboston.com is a helpful site. Great for all ages.

Visit Regina Pizzeria for a delicious traditional crispy thin crust tomato & cheese pizza. Visit Mike's Pastry for the freshest cannoli filled while you wait. Simply delicious!

We walked to the Paul Revere House then to the Old North Church and wandered about the North End with the narrow streets and Italian restaurants and bakeries. People walking about with baby strollers and ducking in for a coffee and cannolli. It was nice

This is a nice area to take a stroll through. We stopped off at Mikes Bakery and had some of the most amazing cakes. You will be spoilt for choice.
