Found by accident, but would return.

Very small, quaint restaurant in the North End of Boston. Great picatta and fettucine alfredo. The calamari was wonderful. Lobster ravioli was also perfect. Good, quick service. Would return.

Long time here, loved by all in this town; can't go wrong everything is delicious - you can walk around town after dinner, also.

Lasagna was absolutely incredible, really delicious but HUGE too. A tower of lasagna, really. The people at the next table over commented on it and ended up ordering it as well because it looked so good. Went with my wife during a trip to Boston, so many italian restaurants but we chose this one because they posted some TripAdvisor information... More

I have been to Pellino's in Marblehead many times over the years and have always enjoyed everything. The food, no matter what any of us ordered, always was fresh and flavorful with nice portiion size. The servers were always friendly and usually part of the Pellino family. Bread was cooked to daily and many times came from the oven to... More

After walking around North End very hungry and unwilling to stand in line we came up to Pellino's. It became clear later why we were able to get a table right away...very overpriced ($35 for bottle of cheapest chianti, $20 for plate of overkooked angel hair and five less then inch size meatballs) and bland (veal marsala always delicious in...

Located on a side street in Marblehead there are no views. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated and parking is available. The menu is large with the usual italian dishes. The food was very good. The drink and wine selection was excellent. The desserts were very good as was the coffee. The price was a little high for italian fare... More

I recently stopped by Pellino's in the North End. I originally ordered gluten free pasta (I am not a Celiac but eat gluten free by choice). I was informed that the GF pasta would be an additional $3 charge. With the additional charge I decided I would prefer the risotto with chicken on top of it...so they switched my order.... More

We visited the Pellino's on Prince Street in Boston's North End, not the Marblehead location. It's a small, off the main drag restaurant. Food was fine, but nothing to write home to mom about. Our server, Maria, was exceptionally nice and attentive. I can't say that the food was exceptional, but we have certainly had worse. The homemade pasta was... More
