Best Italian in town!

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.

Weirdly, there were jalapeño... More

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

There are a lot of Italian restaurants to choose from here, based on how busy , how noisy and how cramped, and if the clientele looked like they were enjoying their food we chose this one and were able to eat in the covered terrace area. the Pasta with a variety of pulled meats was lovely. the staff were very...

Bit noisy and cramped, but service is great and most importantly the food was fantastic. Had seafood pasta and tomato sauce was excellent.

Although I have been going everyday here for the past two weeks as they have good coffee and food however, I don't know place to go early in the morning especially if you are their first customer.... First of all their website says that it opens at 8:00 am however, when I went in this morning it was still closed,... More
