Great area .. busy lively .. top little Italians .. expect busy fast paced service and atmosphere. Has a really nice vibe this area, we went in the evening mainly to sample some of the Italian food, lots of seafood, and did not disappoint.

The best Little Italy I have seen in the US to date on the East Coast. The most genuine and authentic. Real Italians and culture is alive. What a great place not only to eat but to explore.

Okay, it's everything Italian. Italian pastry, food, coffee, shops, good shops....people. It a pretty good walk into a time where immigrants collected by culture, and this will bring back memories of how you grew up. The goods were awesome, and wherever you eat, go to a pastry shop for desert. It will broaden your experience.. There are not neighborhoods like... More

Lots of Italian food here, scenic views further up. There are many bars here too. There's nothing here in the day though.

It's hard to imagine a trip to Boston without visiting the Old North Church. As an American history buff, just seeing the building gave me chill bumps. If I had to rate stops in Boston (or sites of the American Revolution), this might have to be the first stop.

There are so many great menus to choose from. We had a hard time just picking one so of course we picked up some pastries from Mike's Pastries to take back to the hotel and we were eating for days. Eating in the North End was on my must do list. We could walk around the area for hours except... More

The statue of Paul Revere, the old North Church, and his home are all in Boston's North end. The Italian food here is not to be missed! Pick any one of the area's great restaurants and enjoy. Many of them have outside seating, and it's delightful in the summer. Pick up a piece of pastry from Mike's, and sit with... More

We went to a Red Sox game and had dinner here before the game. There are so many places to eat and the smells of all the food will drive you insane!

It's like stepping back into Italy, with all of the yummy food scents coming out from these great restaurants onto the streets.
