This Italian neighborhood, Boston's oldest, is known for its wonderful restaurants and historic sights. Walk the cobblestone streets to take in the architecture and aromas of delicious food, and visit Paul Revere's house and the Old North Church while you're in the neighborhood.

Maria's Pastries in the North End. By far the best cannoli's. Much more authentic than the competitors.

No place is the wrong place here. Loved Regjna's Pizza and Cantina Italiano. Giacomo's line was way too long. Wish we could have tried it.

If you're visiting Boston, go here for dinner even if you're not staying in the North End or Downtown.

This is an amazing part of town. It's history is obvious to every visitor and worth the trip. There are also a lot of neat bakeries, restaurants, and gelato stops but most only accept cash so plan ahead!

We visited Paul Revere's House and the Old North Church as part of our old trolley hopon and hop off tour. Well worth the visit for my eight year old grandson. He had studied Paul Revere in school and you could see it made it...More

Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

First things first, if you are coming in from Logan Airport and know how to work subways, you do NOT have to pay a penny getting into Boston. Take the SL1 (Silver Line 1) airport shuttle from any arriving terminal to SOUTH... More

Hi Mebber, Most of the places/restaurants, I believe can offer a gluten free meal for your daughter. While in Boston, check Faneuil Hall that is really close to Hanover Street in North End.
