Had reservations at Al Dente but when we showed up we were able to walk into Beneventos next door. Spoiler alert, they are owned by the same person and it's the same good so if you don't want to wait for Al Dente you can just go here. The place is tiny so we were crammed in and the service...

Ended up here after several other places had a wait of over an hour. It was quite full but after some suggestions from us they were able to accommodate us in the main floor (don't go to the basement, it's next to the toilet and kitchen and smelled badly). We order a starter with eggplant, ricotta and tomato sauce which... More

We were able to walk in for dinner on a Tuesday night. Lobster ravioli was our appetizer, then we each had entrees as well as drinks. They gave us complimentary Lemoncello shots too. Generous servings gave us 2 meals for 1.

Great food but the service is horrible .also is very crowded all of the time. It's a great atmosphere to hang out and have some pasta or pizza but the wait staff is rude and unpleasant. I went here for my 21st birthday and was given a hard time about my license because I had my original one and the... More

I called about a day before, Thursday, to see if reservations can be had. It was Columbus day weekend and knew it would be busy. I was able to make reservations for 18 people!! They called me early Friday to see if it was still on and I said we were down to 14. By the time we go to... More

Benevento's is a busy place for good reason. The food was reasonably priced and very tasty. Had lunch here last week with family, and was super happy they had a decent selection of gluten-free menu options. The wait staff was super friendly, made great wine recommendations, and the service was as quick as can be expected in a busy place.

We stopped by for a late lunch and we were so glad we did!! We were tired, hungry and not sure what to order. Amanda was our waitress and honestly we couldn't have gotten anyone better. She was friendly and very helpful. When asked what her favorites were, there was a long list of them. But in the end, She... More

We ate dinner at Benevento’s early on a weeknight before an event at TD Garden. In spite of the early hour, the restaurant filled fairly quickly. The atmosphere is informal, lively, somewhat noisy (all tables, no booths), not exactly romantic but fine for a meal before a game or a show. Service was excellent. Prices are moderate. Our food, the... More

It was late and we were starving! We had the Shrimp Grand Marnier appetizer, which was amazing, and split the Bolognese. We were stuffed! It was all wonderful and the staff was very nice. If ever in Boston again, I would eat here again.

Thank Kelly H

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
