This was my first meal in Boston and it was great. I had their lobster ravioli which was awesome and my friend had the calamari and a salad. From the wine to the service all a great experience. I recommend going here for lunch.

Had the veal and it was ok... almost like it was fried in oil that wasn't heated to the right temp before adding the meat. Service was a little slow. Like the open air cafe concept and the guy that played music in the window....More

Great outdoor/indoor dining on a beautiful summer evening; we sat by the open window and drank in the beautiful sights and sounds. Food was good; service was slow. We had appetizers and entrees then walked across the street to Mike’s for dessert.

Went in for a quick lunch, had a personal size pizza. It is almost like a fried dough pizza, I had it with pancetta, onions and a white cream sauce! It was delicious!!

We usually go to the same restaurant when we're in town, but we thought we'd try somewhere new. Florentine Cafe caught our eye and smelled really good. However, for us it was just okay. We sat at the tiniest table and it was incredibly hot...More

My wife and I had dinner on a Thursday evening; she had the rigatoni Bolognese and i had the linguine scampi - both dinners were excellent. They had a busy crowd, but the service was polite and attentive.

My wife and I dropped in for lunch and got seated right away. The bread and olive oil for dipping was a nice touch to start the meal. We both had a panni sandwich and finished every last bite. Each came with a small side...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
