Excellent choice for breakfast in North End

We happened upon Caffe Nuovo while walking through the North End, and stopped in for a delightful breakfast. The menu is quirky, but the food was flavorful, well-prepared and was an excellent value. The vegetable frittata was exquisite, and the home fries were some of the best I have tasted... read more

Looked for Caffe Nuovo at the above address and found Ferrara's. Looked them up online and their website says "Ferrara's Kitchen and Bar (fka Caffe Nuovo) is a traditional Italian Cuisine restaurant located in the heart of historical North End on the way to the "Freedom Trail." It looked crowded; we'll have to try it sometime. I only gave it... More

Very good place for breakfast or lunch. The egg dishes are delicious, but the nutella and banana waffle is just the best. We shared it three ways, to speed the calories, but it was worth every one! I loved sitting in the open window and watching the world go by.

I was craving breakfast foods, and if I lived in Boston, I would never, ever, ever eat at an IHOP or Pancake House ever again. Not with a place like Caffe Nuovo in the city's North End making dishes (even into the late night hours) like the western omelet and the ham benedict. The cafe, which also serves dinner entrees,...

My husband particularly enjoyed his creamy polenta with mushrooms, and I liked the fusilli with meatballs. My child loved the gelato (which was a HUGE portion). The service was very friendly. The upstairs dining room has a full view of the kitchen.

We had dinner here one evening after spending the day exploring Boston. The food was very good, with plenty of seafood in the seafood pasta and risotto. Meals were served in a Pan instead of on a plate, which was an interesting twist. They are a new restaurant trying to attract business in a saturated neighbourhood, so their prices were... More

I usually come here for brunch, even solo, because its so good! It is busy for brunch so expect to wait if you have a large party; but sit at the bar if you can, you will usually get seated quicker. The staff i have had for brunch is always very warm and friendly, however, when I was there for... More
