Best place to have a real Italian meal, every dish was fresh and excellent, and the service could have not been better.

It’s so difficult to choose a restaurant in the North End because there are so many great ones. We randomly chose this one last night and it did not disappoint! We had spaghetti carbonara and lobster ravioli for our main dishes and they were excellent....More

They added $5.00 tip to my credit card without my consent. Everything went very well at the beginning until we asked to divide the check. The waiter was rude and told us impertinently that we would not ask for that again.

Such amazing choices and everyone around us (including us) were very happy with their food. They don’t have air conditioning and it was a very hot day/night here so that was the only challenge but as far as food goes - absolutely scrumptious!

We sat in south part of restaurant which was extremely noisy with a constant screeching sound from either fan or air condition unit. Eggplant parmesan was tasteless like eating a cardboard. Pasta with pesto sauce was mediocre with watered down sauce. Gnocchi was poor, 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

There weren't any children there. I suggest you call and ask if they have one or if they possibly do half orders.

I am sorry but I cannot answer that question as my family doesn't have any food allergies for dairy and soy. I would recommend calling them. Great place.

I'm not sure how extensive the gluten-free choices are, but my husband was able to get a gluten-free pasta for the dish he ordered.
