Genuine Italian food and service. Stopped by for lunch and a bottle of wine. Service a little slow to start but quickly picked up, food was excellent, no complaints.

I have been to many of North End restaurants, but must admit that Trattoria is one of the best. One would love the cozy vibe of the place. They serve great authentic Italian entrees with a comfortable family atmosphere. The food is really good. With friends, we all chose different main courses, appetizers and everyone enjoyed their meal. The bread... More

Absolutely delicious! The food is amazing, the wine list is impressive. Make a reservation and you won't be disappointed. The dining room is small but the flavors are big. I was blown away by the hand made fettuccini and pesto. My husband had the seafood pasta complete with half a lobster and huge scallops. Best tiramisu ever!

We were given the name of this restaurant as a good place to bring out of town guests so we thought we would try it. One of us had Mom's Ragu and the other Vitello Panino. The Ragu was very good and the veal Panino was just ok. For the price both should have been. We sat on the patio... More

Nice restaurant with very good italian food, not very good in the desserts area. But food is good enough to go eat and forget about dessert. My gnoquis were excellent, the pacheri pomodoro and the lasagna were very good aswell.

We came here on the 4th of July while visiting Boston, and had a great meal. The waitress was excellent and we had a nice table by the open windows. We started with the mozzarella caprese and the zucchini flowers both were delicious. My husband had fresh seafood and I had the ravioli porcini both also delicious. We would definitely... More

I have been to a handful of North End restaurants, but have to say this is by far one of the best. I've been here several times, with friends, to dates, to family events, and honestly, the food has never failed to impress. The lasagna is wonderful, as are the ravioli and the daily specials. The service is genuine and... More

We ate out in the covered dining area which was a bit warm but they did have overhead fans. The staff was quick to refill your water and the food was served fairly quickly. I had the best rigatoni dish called Paccheri al Raguu. The meats in the sauce were so tender and the flavor was delicious. My friend had... More

A local resident recommended this place, and we were looking forward to a great meal. We were seated promptly, but felt rushed throughout the evening - rushed to place our order, entrees served while we were still eating appetizers, check presented along with dessert. Service seemed surly at times, which took away from our experience. The food was fine, but... More

Great find in the heart of the North End in Boston. This was suggested to us by our tour guide, and she was right on! Food tasted like it was right off the boat from Italy... you know when the pasta is homemade with care. Not a huge selection of food, which is for the best, pick your favorite Italian... 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.
