“Little Piece of Italy in the Heart of Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Little Italy right in Boston. Great place to walk around. Tons of wonderful resturantes, cafes, and little shops. The people are old timers right from italy. Everyone is very friendly and willing to share their personal stories which only adds to the charm of this cozy place. The streets are narrow and crowded just like the city of Rome. If you cannot make the trip all the way to Italy this is the next best thing! Definetly attend one of their annual festivals like St Anthony's feast for even more fun!

“Mmmmm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Just walk..., close your eyes..., and breathe deeply!... Feel the taste of Italy. Amazing!... it's like being transported to down town Rome... Hundreds of restaurants for all Budgets. If you don't know where to eat... look your trip Advisor!
When you visit Boston... when you visit Boston..., GO to visit North End!
