Great Italian Food

We had a great dinner at Il Panino last night in the North End of Boston. Started with the fried squash flowers, octopus salad and carpaccio of beef. They were all excellent. The dinners were also very good. Lobster ravioli, mushroom ravioli and a seafood dish with lobster, shrimp, claims... read more

My husband and I had dinner here last night, prior to a night out in Boston. We sat outside on the deck. The food was outstanding and the service was on point. All of the servers were so friendly. The Frutti del Mare was delicious; the seafood was cooked perfectly. Try the Baby Octopus appetizer. I can't wait to come... More

We were told that this restaurant was either new, or under new ownership, and I cannot remember which. However, it was really superb! There were two of us and between us we had a rack of lamb and the other a steak. Both cooked to perfection with great taste. Service was attentive and polite. It has a nice atmosphere and... More

This is a very casual restaurant with authentic Italian food. It looks smaller on the outside than it really is. They have a downstairs area as well as an outside patio which is heated in the winter. They only serve beer and wine. The menu is smaller, but covers most everything one would eat at an Italian restaurant. The food... More

Must go, a gem in the north end. Excellent food, try the osobuco or the porcini ravioli with truffle oil, delicious! And the best is it a great value for what you pay!

Celebrated a birthday here on recommendation of local relative. We were three generations visiting from San Francisco and St. Louis. Fun place in a lively neighborhood. Food was good, although not the best Italian I've had, but the atmosphere was perfect for young teens. Friendly service, a decent selection of choices and pretty good wine list. Weirdly, there were jalapeño... More

Wow! Like Nona makes. Yum. My kids are afraid I won't give this place a 5! They won't leave me alone. Ossobucca was excellent, the arugula on top was fresh and tender - 19 year old had no problem finishing off the 10inch wide steak.. 8 year old devoured her calamari, I had the zuppa di pesci and wished I...

Okay, we were weary travelers after taking the 'red eye' from SFO. We checked into the hotel and decided that it was too early in the day to even try to take a nap. I did not expect our room to be ready before 9:30 AM, so we checking in and decided to walk to the North End and look... More
