We went here after our first choice was too busy and we weren’t disappointed. Attentive service, nice atmosphere, fab location. Amazing prawns- biggest we’ve had. Nice main courses, big portions, little on the plain side but overall a very good meal out.

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

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
