Mother Anna's is an appropriate name fur this restaurant. The dishes and portions seem like they come from a mom's kitchen. The highlight of the restaurant isn't the decor but the food. The seafood gnocchi and clam linguini are a tremendous combo to share with...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.
