The meal was great. I highly recommend the Branzino fish dish at market price, as well as the Crab Linguine. Good oyster selection with oysters from Maine, Prince Edward Island, and Cape Cod. I had the Amaro Sour cocktail and it was great as well....More

Chef and owner called on day to discuss dietary questions. That attention to detail carried through the entire meal. Everything fresh. Unique flavor blends. Not your typical marinara smothered Italian meal. Great cocktails. Chef very involved to the end. On our list now of top...More

I ate here twice in the last week and would have gone a few more times. Under the radar and fantastic seafood dishes. All fried foods are gluten free and very clean. The fried smelts were my personal favorite. Crispy , light , golden brown...More

This is a small and fun place to eat however they have really limited choices. The appetizers are good sized - the arancini and crab cakes were quite good. But they do not have enough fish choices - not shell fish. We prefer our fish...More

This is a small restaurant with super fresh seafood. The menu is small but the flavor and meals are outstanding. The oysters are the freshest you can find. The whole fish was delicious. For the non seafood lover there is whole pig bolognese. Wine list...More

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

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
