It was fun walking around the narrow streets of the North End - and pretending that we were in Europe. This section of town is filled with authentic Italian eateries. We ate at the North Street Grille for breakfast. There Nutella stuffed french toast sticks and raspberry cream cheese stuffed french toast are beyond compare.

Went here after going to the New England Aquarium with some friends and as usual, this place is just great. It's always very difficult to determine which place to go here because everything is just so good. Mike's Pastry is definitely permanently a part of any North End experience now the hard part is finding the right restaurant to go... More

My daughter and I walked the Freedom Trail and came along a slice of Heaven known as Mike's Pastries...mmmm! The North End is a great location for Italian food and the like. A wonderful section of Boston!

We had a ball in the North End. We have always enjoyed a visit here and this time was no different. The sights and smells abound. There so many great restaurants and shops that it is hard to decide were to eat. Enjoy the food and then stay for a walk to work it off

Love the north end and never miss it when in Boston. Great meals, history, and fantastic cafes and of course, Mike's Pastry. Great place just to walk around.

What a fabulous area, can't miss, just follow your nose to the garlic scent. so many restaurants, wouldn't have known which to choose if I hadn't checked out Tripadvisor! Giacomo's won hands down, can't be beat. Also went to Mike's after dinner. Had a hard time choosing from all of the fabulous goodies.

A walk through the North End is a walk through History of the revolution and the immigration of the Italo-American community. It also has great restaurants and a few gift shops. A great time to visit is during the summer when they have the Feasts.

I live in New York and remember Mulberry St. and Arthur Ave had a neighborhood this quaint. Mostly restaurants and bakeries, but there are salumerias sprinkled about. Nice break off the Freedom Trail. I will say NY pizza is still the best.

It's the old Italian quarter of Boston with a pizza shop on every corner and 2 bakeries for each pizza place. Quaint and interesting, notable for the church of course.
