Hungry in Boston? Look no further, take yourself down to Hanover Street in Boston ans soak up the atmosphere in Little Italy where you will find a plethora of Italian ristorante of all shapes and sizes. You will be spoilt for choice but if you choose Ristorante FIORE you won't be disappointed. Good atmosphere, generous portions, great service. The day's... More

I would recommend it, good solid Italian food and good service. I prefer the red sauce Italian, and this place has a great basic menu. The appetizers, even the non Italian items, were quite good as well.

This is a tourist trap. Paid 28.00 for 6 pasta shells and one cut up sausage,plus tax and tip. They served it in a pan the size of a salad plate. The appetizer was describe as thin aged meat. It was 5 cut cold slivers that you could read a news paper through. It was so disappointing. Mr fiore should... More

Calamari, carpaccio di bresaola, swordfish and pasta with Italian sausage. It was all enjoyable and the service was good but it was quite expensive in comparison to other places we visited, hence the 3 rather than 4 rating. In particular, paying extra for contorni seemed over the top. That is normal for restaurants in Italy, I know, but this is... More

There are about 100 restaurants in the North End but Ritorante Fiore is a must not miss treat. We went to the North End for the afternoon and had a great lunch experience at Ristorante Fiore. First, our waiter was Orazzio and he was an ambassador for the establishment. He was friendly and wonderful. He saw me taking pictures and... More

Great food - delicious and totally worthwhile. But, the service made this experience even better. Our waiter 'O' was fantastic. Professional, attentive, passionate and descriptive about the menu and their food, he was one of the best servers that I, or anyone in my party, has seen in a really long time.

Took my wife to dinner here while visiting Boston. The flavor was pedestrian. Mediocre at best. The service was very good.

I wouldn't consider myself a foodie but I am still a bit of a food snob and this place did not cut it. Food wasn't bad but it was disappointing when considering all of the Italian restaurants in the area and how good dinner could have been. It was just above average but certainly not great. Service was up to... More

We stumbled across this gem in Hanover street and was lead to the rooftop bar. It was a beautiful evening and the setting so cosy. We had generous portions of baked pasta with authentic Italian flavors. I will recommend this place to friends.

I came here after wandering the North End and not finding anything without a really long wait or fancy white tablecloths (just wasn't up for the "effort" of a fancy dinner that night!). This place had no wait, which I chalked up to its size - there are a couple of rooms plus a patio and the rooftop, so even... More
