Off the beaten path, but not far

Lobster ravioli was excellent, worth getting on the side streets for. Very small place, most people coming and going were for take out but there were a few tables to sit.

Stopped by on a snowy Sunday, had their Italian sub, great flavor and loaded with fresh cut meats. Hots were just enough to keep things lively. Just what you would expect from a North End establishment, will go back next for their Steak & Cheese.

My daughter, son-in-law, and I went in here after wandering around the North End debating about where to go for lunch. Glad we did! The food is plentiful (enough leftovers for another meal!) and the service was super friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and got a great recommendation on where to go for dessert (Caffe Vittoria). Thanks so much. We'll... More

I've been to Dino's one time so far, and I'll definitely go again. I had a really delicious sandwich and the woman behind the counter was super nice. Do your self a favor and grab some lunch here.

Great place, cooked to order. Service with smile. Will be our new favorite during temporary stay in North End. Busy take out. Casual but would go for night out....food is worth it. Perfect marinara..not too salty. gnocchi the best.

This is a little deli type of restaurant, maybe a dozen tables, which fill up fast. I had the egg plant and veal, they were quite good. A nice selection of beers and wine too. A bargain price for average Boston, and a locals hangout.

We liked the casual, lunch counter feel to this place and the portions were good sized. Between us we had an eggplant parm sub, gnocchi w marinara sauce and cheese tortellini w marinara sauce. The portions were good sized, but all the dishes were fairly bland. Another time I'd try another place.

Very unassuming and relaxed rather like the old fashioned lino table Chinese restaurants of the past in Sydney. A range of top model cars picking up takeaway. Delicious pasta, cheap and friendly atmosphere.

We loved our lunch at this cozy cafe, homemade pesto, delicious fettuccine Alfredo, friendly service. Generous sizes, sandwiches are 16 inches but they will make them smaller if you want.
