Description: With our black pasta dish: Aglio Olio rated top 100 in the country, The Daily Catch - Seaport is considered by many as the best place to enjoy Pasta, Seafood and most importantly Calamari in Boston. Footsteps from the water, you can enjoy the ocean breeze while sipping wine or cocktails on our Outdoor Patio. Or you can sit in any of our newly renovated dinning rooms with stunning views of the Boston Harbor and City Skyline while taking in the aroma of fresh ingredients from our open kitchen. We are the #1 Seafood Restaurant in Boston's Seaport District according to Zagat Food Ratings. Your reservation is only a click away! Please note: The Daily Catch - Seaport gladly accepts online reservations for our indoor dining-room. We are, however, unable to accept online reservations for our outdoor patio due to our inability to guarantee favorable weather conditions. Patio seating is offered to patrons, as weather and availability permits, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Thank You!

Had the sumptuous black pasta, shrimp scampi and the oh so delicious fried calamari! The garlic that comes with the black pasta is wiped totally clean. Seafood is very fresh and i feel is reasonably priced. Place is pretty small and high chance you will need to wait a while (15 - 20 mins) but certainly worth it. Place is... More

This was my first time in boston. I made reservations on open table for 6pm. Two servers and a chef were smoking outside- first red flag. Walking in the ambience was "cheap tacky restaurant" feel. They should at least dim the lights. They seated us at a two top right near the front door (it's December). We had been dying... More

It's all about the Black Pasta here - especially the dish with the chopped up calamari and garlic. It's a tiny place so get here early Mon-Thurs and you will get a seat. Huge portions - in fact they serve it in the skillet it was cooked in. I've also tried the vongole and scallops w linguine. Everything was delicious!... More

Not a fancy restaurant, but the food and service were excellent. I was with a group of 6 and we had a variety of dishes. Everyone declared that their choice was extremely good. Service was attentive and helpful. Good selection of wines, including a number available by the glass. In warmer weather, the patio looked like a great place to... More

Daily Catch has great fresh seafood. You will never be let down with the food. The location is absolutely delightful right on Boston Harbor overlooking the ferry traffic. In nicer weather, sitting out on the patio can't be topped.

The Daily Catch on Hanover Street in Boston's North End is a gem of a restaurant. The seafood dishes are so fresh and exquisitely prepared right in front of you. My husband orders the black squid ink pasta with ground squid (Tinta de Calamari) and I get the linguine with little neck clams (Vongole Neopolatin). The clams casino, calamari meatballs,... More

Make sure you don't miss this little, and I mean little, hole in the wall that serves the best Italian food in the city and be sure you order the large size calamari, you won't regret it!

We have been frequenting this restaurant for years, long before there were multiple locations. We particularly like this location as it's cozy, intimate and very New England - no frills. The food speaks for itself. The swordfish with balsamic vinaigrette reduction has been literally my favorite preparation of swordfish for years. We have tried many oth dishes here, including Lobster... More

The Daily Catch is justifiably lauded for its authentic Italian style seafood dishes. I would highly recommend the back squid ink pasta with clam sauce. The calamari 'meatballs' are great too. Last time, we chose to go to the seaport location which had the same delicious food and no lines (compared to the hellishly crowded North End location. Even better... More

Just a great little restaurant. Nothing fancy, including food prep, but really good, fresh seafood. Menu on the blackboard. Cash only. You may end up sharing a long table as the place is tiny. Not to miss.
