This is one of the best restaurants in the North End. The pizza is amazing, but the past is equally as good. They don’t serve coffee (so beware if you want an after dinner coffee). Outside of that, this place is pretty perfect. I had...More

This was recommended by the hotel for good Italian food and we were not disappointed. The waitress was wonderful (sorry I can't remember her name). We tried the alfredo and sausage/basil pizza and they were both great. Thanks again for a great dining experience!

Cozy spot on a rainy evening looking for a great Italian spot in the north end. The reviews about small are definitely true but it's part of the Italian ambiance, right!? Red sangria was delightful. Beer was ice cold. We did the caesar salad for...More

Perfect place for authentic cuisine. I had the special: Lobster and shrimp stuff canteloni with vodka sauce. I could not think of a single bad thing to say about it. We started with a pizza pie which was also delicious. They use freshly grated pecorino...More

Was very much looking forward to dinner at Benevento's, but unfortunately it was a pretty weak experience overall. Should start by saying that we love the North End, and love traditional red sauce, no frills Italian restaurants. And Benevento's has the right feel - small,...More

recommended this place by a local friend as we were visiting from the UK. Great food and a warm welcome, friendly staff. Good selection on menu and plenty of choice for drinks. Really excellent genuine Italian experience and good value. Enjoyed everything about this place.

Benento's pizza has a thin-ish chewy crust that comes out of the oven crisp right to the center. Our North Ender was topped with prosciutto, soppressata and basil, with fresh grated Romano added at the table. Service was prompt and friendly. There's a decent beer...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

Yes. As you have seen others comment, you are near Mike's Pastry, but I would try the dessert here. After leaving, swing by Mike's and get a slice of Boston Cream Pie to go. It is AWESOME!
