I really wasn’t interested in going to this restaurant because my impression would be that would be so seafood based (I’m not a big seafood fan) that I would enjoy it, boy, was I ever wrong. Aqua Pazza is one of the best restaurants in...More

This is not a spaghetti and meatball restaurant. It is fine Italian seafood dining with a modern twist. My mom and I had the Branzino which was probably one of the best fish dishes we have ever had. We also split the crudo scallop appetizer....More

The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional. Loved the ceviche. The crab cakes were so light, better than any I’ve ever had. And the risotto de mare was heavenly. We feel lucky to have stumbled upon this place and recommend it highly.

Recommended by our knowledgable hotel concierge as fine food in a casual atmosphere. He was correct on both counts. Excellent food in a central spot served by friendly staff. Even the cocktails were great. All good. I’d go again tomorrow

North End
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
