For our first night in Bosyon in Little Italy we wanted some nice apples and vino. Both were a disappointment here. Maybe great for a coffee because of the outdoor patio but without the patio it would have been a 1.5

I went here after the pride parade and got seated for a table of 7 right away. They served lots of bread and water until the food came. The homemade sangria is amazing! I have Celiac disease and was able to get gluten free broccoli,chicken,...More

Wow! We loved this restaurant. The service was great and reasonably priced. I ordered the baked ziti with marinara sauce instead of the meat sauce and it was probably the best baked ziti I've ever had. Everyone at my table tried it and it was...More

Delicious food, generous portions, reasonable pricing. We ate outside because we felt too casual to go inside some other places, and it was perfect.

Hidden treasure. From south Carolina for a business trip. Ordered the gnocchi with lobster, shrimp, and scallops. I asked to substitute the gnocchi for linguine. They did without hesitation. Great drinks. The water even even refreshing. Great service by our waitress julianna.

The food was overall decent and of generous proportions. My wife had the Shrimp a la Mama Anna and it was quite flavorful with plenty of properly cooked shrimp. My linguine with littleneck clams was decent as well. The service was attentive. We have a...More

This is one where I wish there was something between average and very good. This trip was better than average but not quite very good. Some of the food was very good, Fettuccine Alfredo was very good and the appetizer version is a meal 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

They did not have gluten free options. It was the worst Italian food I have ever had.
