Ok, so we weren't dressed for fine dining, after spending the day touring Boston colleges. Around dinner time, we had our Uber driver drop us off in the north end. He said "you can't get a bad meal in the North End." He was great, but he was wrong. I had the gnocchi. It was a large serving with pretty... More

Boston's North End has many fine Italian restaurants, but the Trattoria Il Panino stands out for the quality and authenticity of its Italian cuisine. The pastas are very good, salads are excellent (uniformly so), and the fish offerings that I have sampled are good. But it's the meat dishes -- ribs, sausages, meat balls, and veal -- which really stand... More

We had been told by a couple from the UK that this was a "MUST EAT HERE" under no uncertain terms, and we just couldn't have been more astonished by how incredible the food is here. This is possibly the best meal we have ever eaten in our lives- from the Prosciutto with melon (OMG), the classic lasagna, the Ravioli... More

There are so many places to choose from in Little Italy - this place was a great choice. Not too long of a wait - and they were busy. Wait staff was friendly. Has a very bustling, family feel. Food was great - we tried the special - fantastic. Would definitely come back next time we're in the Boston area.

We were in the North End prior to our night on The Green Turtle II (floating B&B in Charlestown marina). Looking for a place for a good meal to carry us through the day. Based on previous reviews, we selected Trattoria Il Panino and were not disappointed. It was raining, so we were happy to be seated in the small... More

Great menu, great food, great ambiance & service! Last visited July 3rd, 2016 with a group of 8. Menu is perfect for a large group. Everyone zeroed in on a a meal they wanted to try within minutes. We all shared a few apps. My favorite was the ricotta stuffed squash blossom. When our entrees were delivered we asked for... More

Don't think twice...skip the long lines of other restaurants and stop here. We got a street view seat and had the best food ever. Ordered the mushroom ravioli (their star dish) and it was the tastiest food I have had in a long time. My sister ordered the rack of lamb and it was great as well. Some friendly women... More

Food was good and service was very enjoyable. This area is very crowded especially for a few "well known" restaurants. You had to queue for one of these "well reviewed" restaurant so we decided to let the luck decides for us and it worked pretty well

The 4 of us all enjoyed excellent Italian food. Fresh tasting and good value. The menu had a good range of dishes and portion size was good too. There was a decent wine list. All in all nothing to complain about in terms of food. A great place to go go for good Italian food in Boston. The service was... More

No major complaint here. The food was very good and the atmosphere was nice. The service was a little slow as our waiter didn't check in very often. He was, however, very pleasant. We had linguine with clam sauce and a mixture of slow roasted meats in sauce over linguine, which my husband loved. We would return although I can't... More

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
