We entered the North End hungry and tired. Crazy! A very nice cycle rickshaw driver asked us if we needed help. We must have looked it. We told him we needed pasta. He said - then go to Dino's. He gave us directions that took us into the heart of the North End eatery neighborhood and to the door of... More

I usually get the chicken pesto sub with fresh mozzarella cheese. Food is fresh and comes out quickly and staff is very friendly

Simply looking for a quick easy sandwich in North Boston. This was the place. Had the Italian Sub, and it was great. 16" sub with fresh ingredients, plenty of meet on a toasted fresh roll...what more can you ask for. Owner was friendly and accommodating, and food was delivered quickly. Good, casual, simple....great choice for lunch.

This place is super casual. In fact it's like visiting a deli. But it's really reasonable, has a few tables and even serves beer & wine. We had the meatball sandwich and spinach ravioli with pesto sauce and both were fantastic!

If you want amazing italian food at a decent price, Dino's is your spot. The atmosphere is more a of a low-key cafe but the food is absolutely top notch. My favorite dish is the pumpkin tortellini but forewarning it is intensely creamy and might be best split with someone. Dino's also has huge sub sandwiches for under $10 that... More

The counter woman brought it RIT over and offered an extra plate an utensils. They were very friendly, the food was really good and the atmosphere... More

Small place,about 15 two seater tables. Been there a long time. We sat inside and had Calamari. They serve good cold beers and do a lot of take-out orders.

This place is a real gem at the corner of Prince and Salem Streets with nice staff and meals that will please even the pickiest of eaters. Take your time, as these meals are prepared fresh, so relax and enjoy.
