I can honestly say I’ve never had worst service in my entire life than the Florentine Cafe. We were a party of 6 on Dec 7 and put in the basement. It was really cold, in fact I noticed other patrons wearing jackets. Our waitress...More

We went to Florentine because the other restaurant we wanted to go to had a 4 hour wait. They opened the downstairs for additional seating which was quaint and quiet. The problem was we were seated next to the water pipes and it was noisy...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
