If you get a chance to go to the north end in Boston, do not miss this restaurant, it's an out of the way place on a side street, but oh my stars, the food!!!! I ate every bite and almost licked the plate. :)

Then 10min after, the head waiter came into... More

We have been here several times and it is always great. But this time the food was incredible. Dinners are served in a skillet, piping hot, large portions. The simplicity of the flavored reminds us of Italy. My pasta was incredibly fresh and cooked Al dente. I had a whole lobster, perfectly cooked, and the sauce was incredible. My husband... More

Went there last week and it was sooo delicious. It was the best lobster pasta I have ever had. The lobster was very fresh, the pasta with spicy tomato sauce is a hit!!! Surely I will come back to Trattora Il Panino again.

I live in the North End and always go to Il Panino. In the first year living in the area my husband and I decided to try out all the great places of the neighborhood, and unfortunately we found out that the major part of restaurants are tourist traps. This one is different. We love the staff (and they are... More

Looking for a great Italian restaurant in Boston's historic North End, then visit Trattoria Il Panino. There are lots of great restaurants in the North End and it can be difficult to decide which one you would like to try. Our party of four really enjoyed our meal at Trattoria Il Panino. Portions are large and each dish was delicious.... More

This was our second time visiting this place and was just as good as the first. The food is awesome at this restaurant. We ordered shrimp in limoncello which is so rich in flavor. The shrimp is cooked perfectly and the flavor from the juice is on point. A must for dunking your extra bread. We also got the eggplant... More

My wife and I Visit Boston often and have passed this restaurant many times and always wanted to try it so here we go. They were very prompt with our reservation time but don't get there early as there is no bar area to wait in. We split a Ceasar to start which was a very classic version meaning you... More
