I do not recommend this restaurant. The service staff was unbelievably rude. The woman put her hand in our faces and told us to wait while they set the table and it was set by the time she finished waving her hand in our faces. The chef was rude and unfriendly--told us that he doesn't recommend anything because he doesn't... More

We went early evening on a Sunday and only had to wait a few minutes. We did a count, and there are only approximately 18 seats in the whole restaurant. Our server was the sister of the two brothers who own the restaurant - she was really charming, seemingly gruff, but a real sweetheart. We had broiled halibut, and also... More

Chances are, regular visitors to Boston's North End know about the unprepossessing restaurant, The Daily Catch. If you haven't eaten there while walking the neighbourhood, it's perhaps because you were put off by the line-up outside the door. (You may have peaked through the window and thought, "It's tiny!" It is, with seating for 16-20 people.) But don't give up.... More

This is an interesting restaurant. Essentially, it's about the food. This is not a restaurant that tries to distract you from sub-par food with a trendy atmosphere. The kitchen is a part of the restaurant. There's maybe seven tables in the whole place. That's part of the charm. Granted, this wouldn't be a place to have a business dinner, but... More

Tiny, cozy space - you may have to lineup outside. Fun, casual ambience - wine in plastic cups and entertaining, moody staff. Great seafood cooked in viewing distance, Italian-style.

I'm not sure where I read about this place, but it was on my short list when visiting Boston. We were very pleased and would definitely go back again. Restaurant has limited seating and is cash only. Menu is on a blackboard on the wall. Food is delicious and oriented to seafood/pasta. Most people we very casually dressed and lots... More

After reading all the great reviews on this in many sources, I couldn’t wait to try. It sounded like getting a table would be difficult, so we went 16:00 on a Monday. No problem. Table right away. Menu a blackboard on the wall. Only 20 seats. Seafood and pasta oriented menu. Very friendly people who enjoyed a lively joking conversation.... More

This place has high recommendation but I don't know if it's that good. Yes the food was good, and the calamari meatball was one of its own kind. However, the pasta was something you could get in many restaurants in this area... And atmosphere isn't too good because the place is small and very noisy with the cooking sound. I... More

Amazing pasta, we had the squid ink with squid (!) and the combo. Basic kind of place but the food was great. Equals any pasta we've had in Italy. Tiny. January - and minus degrees, we can see why we did not queue but can see why it is usual to. No CCs accepred. For dessert we got a Lobster... More
