I think this is the best Italian restaurant in the North End. My family loves it and they have excellent business lunch specials. I hold many business luncheons there as well.

This is our favorite restaurant in the North End Boston. Always great food and great service. Try their homemade Bombolotti.

Everyone at our table enjoyed their meals. My husband had the home made ravioli and loved every bite. I had eggplant which was made more like a lasagna. It was delicious and light. Our friends had a cavatella dish with sausage and broccoli which was seasoned perfectly. The wait staff was friendly and non-intrusive. Next time we are in Boston,... More

Wow! We usually try a different restaurant every time we eat in the North End, but no more! We'll definitely be back here.

Beautiful little spot in the north end. Great Caesar Salad and chicken parm, though pricey. The wait is usually very long, especially at night. Also, the tables are very close together so it is a little cramped. There is a beautiful outdoor eating space, though I have never eaten there.

Food was exemplary, service was great. Attended with family and friends , a group of 11. We sat upstairs where they have a larger room. We were placed next to a larger party , probably 25 plus people. They were drinking and were EXTREMELY loud. We could barely carry a conversation with the person next to us. It really hindered...

This establishment never disappoints us when we visit yearly. If I lived closer I would dine here often. Waitstaff is very attentive and food is outstanding.

Had a Sunday lunch here this week and could not have been happier. The one thing you always have to know when you go to the North End is that you're never going to find parking so just get over it and be prepared to take a nice walk to your restaurant. You know you are probably going to eat... More

My boyfriend and I wandered in on Saturday night after walking around North End for about an hour. We sat on the outdoor deck on the roof which was very nice with a huge bar.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
