We met friends for dinner Saturday night. We are from the area and love Sabatino's. Our friends came from out of town. We all are very familiar with nice restaurants and dining in the North End. From the moment we arrived at our reservation time...to the end of the evening, the 4 of us had a great time. We sat on the patio of course which had great atmosphere, and as the sun went down they lit the heaters. The waitstaff was fun and professional. We got drinks, apps, entrees and desert. Everything was nothing short of delicious! Our friends were blown away, and they are quite particular. The prices are quite reasonable especially for the quality and quantity of food. They offer homemade pasta. Our friends even texted us on the way home to let us know again how much they loved Sabatino's. Can't get any better out of Boston.More

Seriously, one of the worst Italian resturants ever, they want be fine dining they need to upgrade their food before they try, their dishes while expensive are far from worth it, actually wrote this for Sabatinos North, because I guess even though it is one...building, they pretend to be 2, fits with the pretend italian foodMore

My wife and I went here for dinner recently and were thoroughly unimpressed. The place is dirty. There was spaghetti on my wife's chair that she had to wipe off when she sat down. Also there was spots of sauce on the paper specials menu....The waitress smelled like cigarettes Also the waitress brought my wife a 2nd glass of wine while she still had a little bit of win left in her first glass. She took the wine from the first glass and dumped it into the 2nd glass. Very classy! My wife ordered the carbonara and I got the veal/eggplant parmesan. We both asked for angel hair and were served spaghetti. The food had no flavor to it at all. Not a place we'd recommend to or anyone or ever go back to.More

After shopping at the Derry Farmers Market, we decided to drop into Sabatinos for drinks and dinner. What a great decision! Sat at the bar and received immediate, attentive service from Joe, the bartender. Great meal, great drinks, and great atmosphere!

The food was terrific! We started with the arancini balls which were tasty. Just a note though, they only give you 3 so difficult to split between 2 couples. The veal braccioletini was delicious and the chicken sabatino was also very good. For dessert we...had the tiramisu which was not what you would expect, there was no coffee or chocolate in this dessert, just vanilla custard and cake. It was kinda weird, would not order this again. Finally, we sat outside under the covered porch which was nice for such a beautiful night. The only issue was that our waitress also had tables inside and it was very difficult to service all her tables appropriately. Ultimately, we only saw her once after we placed our order. Bad decision on managements part. All in all we would definitely go back again.More

I am glad to find this gem which is very close to my home. I love Italian food, and Sabatino’s definitely gave my whole family a home cooked dinner feeling. My wife had the seafood pasta, it was fresh with beautiful mix of flavors. My...son and I both had the veal, it was tender and pasta was cooked to perfection. Portion was very generous. Very friendly waiting staff, very good ambiance. Lovely restaurant! We will be sure to visit again soon.More
