Used to eat here every day

Lived in the North End years ago and would grab a sandwich on my way to work. MY co-workers were envious. If you are in the North End you have to stop by, and don't worry about the line, it moves fast.

Getting lost in the North end taking in her charm, and we found this gem.. Fantastic service, portions were huge, I had the steak pizziola sandwich which was amazing, but much bigger than my appetite.. Wife had a shrimp plate which she devoured.. Seating is limited, but was perfect for us on Friday around 11:45.. If I worked in the... More

Nice little place, authentic Italian, reasonably priced and friendly service. There isn't much seating so on a crowded day it might be frustrating, but we were the only ones there for most of our weekday lunch.

While visiting the old church on the freedom trail we needed a lunch break. Started looking for a recommended bakery - the line was very long. We decided to try Dino's near by and were thrilled. The meatball sub and spaghetti were fabulous. It can be hard to please kids, but ours raved about how good the food was. The... More

Stopped by Dino's for a quick meatball sub and it was awesome. They were quick putting it together, good meatballs, bread and cheese. I would highly recommend them for a quick lunch!

Dining at Dino's was a lovely experience. It is a local place with local folks. An elderly woman dining at the table next to us made me feel awesome when she said I looked pretty and classy. The food was hot and came out quickly. The adult beverages were priced nicely. Will definitely return if ever in Boston again.

Lots of bread with minimal garnishing, the chicken was dry and portobello overcooked And indeed these subs are huge!

Stopped here for lunch and it was wonderful. Small spot with very large sandwiches. One sandwich is definitely enough for two people. Would absolutely go back again.

I have eaten lots of spaghetti marinara but nothing comes close to Dino's. A must do (don't let the very basic decor put you off)
