There is a lot of charm in the North End, and it is authentic when it comes to the tastes of Italy. If you are with the family, Regina's is worth visiting, the pizza is chewy and full of tomato sauce and stringy cheese. The prices here are more affordable than any other place in the North End. However, let... More

There's quite a number of restaurants here (many italians) at this area which is just a short walk away from Quicy Market. You will pass this area if you're doing the Freedom Trail (toward north from Quincy Market). Had an excellent meal at The Daily Catch and then bought myself some pastries right opposite (Mike's Pastry) which were jam packed.... More

I think it would be difficult to find a neighborhood in America so rooted in our nation's history. Whether it's walking past Paul Revere's House, the Old North Church or viewing Breed's Hill across the river, you are literally walking in the footsteps of our founding fathers. Take some time to think about the significance of this area between snapping... More

Every time I fly into Logan, I make a stop in the North End. I just love it. Yes, it's gotten a bit touristy, and depending upon when you show up, you could wait in line for a couple hours before getting into your chosen restaurant, but... I think it's worth the wait... and the price. You just can't beat... More

The north end is a must on a tourist stroll through Boston. Take Quincy Market as a starting point and make your way up to the North End. It's a nice stroll with many restaurants on the way. Great for people watching and for sucking in the atmosphere!

Boston exudes a European vibe throughout the city but nowhere as much as the Northend. Do not miss the auroma of garlic and olive oil, the cobblestoned alleyways leading you to countless Italian restaurants and divine Cannoli's of Modern. This is a MUST do!

This is such an historic area that is filled with an old charm, and the people are great. It has amazing architecture, bakeries and restaurants. It will take a full day walking around to enjoy it's beauty.

We like walking round cities & were told this was a great place to walk round. It was quite a trek from downtown where our hotel was, but we enjoyed it when we got there. There was a Xmas light & music show as part of their holiday decorations which was really quite good & added a little something to... More

North End is a must for the foodie in the audience. There are many fine Italian restaurants in the district. Travel to and from is easy by subway.

Had a great meal in Pomodoro's. Tiny restaurant but full of buzz. If you have to wait for your table you need to step outside as there is absolutely not a spare inch of extra space! No deserts or coffee but a taster as a treat to end your meal. Would recommend.
