“Little Italy in Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

The North End is definitely worth a visit if you like Italian dining, pastries, more dining, capuccino, more dining, and pastries. I recommend Giacomo's for dinner (yes, it is worth the wait) and Mike's Pastries for dessert. Mmmmm.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

We entered this part of town while following the freedom trail, it has so many important historical buildings, old architecture, and great family owned restaurants, it's definitely worth visiting if your visiting Boston
