Volle Nolle is a new taste sensation! If you are looking for another "red-sauce-North End, Italian American, you won't find that here but rather, what my wife and I found to be one of the best, most creative flavor profiles in all of Boston! The hospitality started when we were waiting outside , because we were about fifteen minutes early... More

We had been wandering about for ages looking for a bar or restaurant and the place next to this had a queue and didn't look anything special - then we found this, and they had tables! I suspect because it looks a bit trendy - it only has about 18 seats but the food was very good, we had a... More

As a former resident of Boston and a frequent visitor, I've spent plenty of time in the Little Italy neighborhood. This is now my new favorite spot. My wife and I were looking for a place to have a glass of wine or a drink and the look of Volle Nolle caught our eye. It's small with open windows looking... More

What an eclectic menu for a tiny restaurant. Incredible flavors in all the evening's dishes: grilled octopus, gazpacho with ground almonds,and tomato toast. Each had wonderful flavors that rivaled similar dishes at renounced Napa Valley restaurants.

French without the attitude. Delicious food and delightful waitstaff. Yuri was very understanding of my uneducated wine palate with spot on recommendations. I was so happy to enjoy this little touch of Paris in Boston's Little Italy with my beloved husband.

Sebastian Martinez partners with Tory and Yuri to create our go-to restaurant in the North End. Every guest we have brought there understands why we keep warming the seats at the window and at the tables for four. If you want to have exquisitely conceived and realized cuisine, this is your place. Each small plate is a composition sparingly constructed... More

Excellent food , outstanding wait staff, and no crazy wait. Food is different from regular North End Restaurants. Everything was so delicious. For the person who wrote another review, it used to be a lunch place, that was fantastic. They changed to a dinner menu when they got a beer and wine license. The wine Tory suggested was perfect with... More

My daughter who lives on Beacon Hill suggested that we try this restaurant and I am so glad we did. We all love octopus and this restaurant offers it. We glided past a line of people waiting to get into a popular restaurant next door and were instantly greeted by the waitstaff and seated. We explained that we came to... More

Pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this cozy little spot. It looked so inviting from outside we couldn't help but go inside to check it out. It was warm, comfortable and rustic. The waitstaff were welcoming and very knowledgeable about the menu. Also gave us great wine recommendations. I loved that they suggested sampling the wine before deciding on which to... More

We wanted desperately to try cannolis so we headed to Hanover St. A yelp review suggested this was a good sandwich place which was kid-friendly. Imagine my surprise when there did not appear a single sandwich on the menu! And the restaurant was dim and candle-lit having a "date" feel. Nevertheless we stayed and so glad we did. My very...
