Limoncello has been around for decades, and it serves wonderful Southern Italian fare. Their veal and chicken Parm, Piccata, and Marsala are as good as it gets. They also have great fish and pasta dishes. It is casual dining with a great price point and...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, at times it can be loud. Call ahead and find out how many reservations they have set on the night you choose. I find it’s nost quiet in the 5-6 pm hours & loudest on weekends between 7-9. Hope this helps.
