“Don't Miss Boston's Little Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Spent a week in Boston and out of that week, we went to the North End two different days. We enjoyed the restaurants, bakeries and local architecture. The North End is a busy place but it is such a charming part of Boston. We went into the local church and spent a few quite moments. It was beautiful inside. It was the Holy Week so that made it even better. We walked along the streets snapping pictures of the beautiful architecture and historical landmarks. The Paul Revere House is really neat. The old brick streets are very neat to see as well. It's just an overall neat experience. Word to the warning, most of the businesses in the North End only accept cash.

North End in Boston is a place full history and of course place full of good restaurant. On spring/summer you can take your children to play in the rose kennedy fitzgerald greenway and then visit North End for good gelato and the best tiramisu in town at Vittoria cafe..

“a boston must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Everything you could want is just a walk away here. The best food i have ever eaten, the best bakeries i have ever seen, you are surrounded by the charm of the city. The people were so kind, funny and friendly. If you are lost or are looking for recommendations do not be afraid to ask. The locals take pride in their area and love to share.
