Good for Italian Brick Oven Pizza & Pasta

We were there for Italian Dinner and brick oven pizza. We were in a hurry and selected this place as the wait time was not there. But, we found the inside environment very pleasant and relaxing. Service was good, food was good. You could see your food being prepared in front of you. Pesto Pasta... read more

I live down the street and whenever I am in need of some "comfort food," I know exactly where to go. The coziness of the place and the friendliness of the staff is what makes this my favorite "go to place" in the North End. the food is delicious and you definitely get more than what you pay for. Whenever... More

After making a reservation for the wrong night, I called the hostess at Benevento's (Jackie) in a panic. Jackie quickly accommodated our party of ten in less than an hours notice and saved the evening! I was extremely impressed by Benevento's customer service and flexibility. The food was also amazing. Everyone in my party ordered something different on the menu... More

We have been here several times and never have trouble getting seated during the week or before 5 on weekends. I recommend reservations on the weekends. The service is great and the food is excellent. Pastas are delicious and pizzas are fantastic with lots of choices, including vegetarian.

I was in town for a few days, for work and had no idea where to go, staying near the stadium it seemed everywhere was a sports bar and a came with a big hairy Bostonian behind the bar and a plastic covered one page menu. First night I lost heart and went back to my hotel and ordered room... More

Our waitress took great care of us. She answered all our gluten free questions and was sensitive to our needs and didn't rush us. The chicken tortellini soup was alright and the vodka pizza was nice. Although if I came back I would try something different. Overall, I liked the service (Alex)the best and it was a nice experience so... More

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
