Food was delicious! We had a party of 12 - sat downstairs at 2 tables - side by side. Everyone loved their food. I had the mushroom truffle ravioli... Delicious! I ate the whole thing! I rarely finish the whole meal but it was that good! Definitely will go back again!

This wonderful Italian restaurant has become our favorite in the North End. The food is consistently 5 star delicious. We have never made a bad choice. The wait staff is friendly and helpful...but the hostess Maria is #1 with us. She greeted us by name after just one visit! We had mentioned the first time we dined that we were... More

Had risotto and pastas and all were quite tasty and well prepared. Only complaint is the menu lacks lighter fare and salads, however the waiter did offer to do half portions of a few entrees. Service and atmosphere of the restaurant are good.

We went for 2 lunches and were delighted at the food and service, you will not be disappointed. the staff were very friendly and conversed in Italian with my wife throughout the meal, we had a half bottle of Chianti Classico leftover and they put it aside for our visit the next day, all in all an excellent experience.

My husband and I have traveled to Boston many times and each trip we make reservations before we even leave home. It is a cozy little place but everyone is wonderful and you can chat with neighboring tables and that's part of the appeal. Francesca and her beautiful accent complete the feel of being in Italy. The food is amazing... More

We had a very nice experience and good service. We had nice salads and smoked salmon as appetizers. I had the baby octopus, which was tender and tasty. My husband had the grilled seafood platter with grilled veggies. It was very good and large enough to share. We are very particular with seafood, and this restaurant had good quality fresh... More

Went with my family on a busy summer Sunday night. The area was vibrant and fun, with the World Cup soccer match blaring from practically every shop. We chose this restaurant because we walked by and the menu looked good. Our 15 minute wait was more like 45 minutes, but we were excited because a local we were waiting with... More

After a trip on the liberty tall ships in Boston Harbor we headed to the North End for some Italian food. Family was in town visiting from the midwest. 12 of us called ahead and got a spot at Il Panino. Cosimo greeted us at the door and our waitress was Maria. She had a big personality and treated us...

This is where we got engaged and visit every time we go back to Boston. Short menu means they specialize in what they do best. Good variety of Italian from northern to southern cucina. The staff is expectedly Italian, so they do have their mood swings, but the service is good. The food is fantastic, and the pricing is not... More
