My wife and I had a great meal at Bricco last week. The atmosphere is lively and comfortable and the food was excellent. My only beef (so to speak; I had salmon) was that we found it to be a bit overpriced. For two entrees...More

While the downstairs dining room is a bit tight, the food at this restaurant was solid, albeit not great. There were 3 of us and we had appetizers, pastas, and protein. The star of the show was our Tomahawk steak. It was large, aged and...More

Went here with a friend. We each had a pasta dish. They were beautifully arranged and tasty but nothing to write home about. The service was poor, our waiter stopped by maybe twice throughout the entire evening. Prices are $$$ but it is a higher...More

We went for dinner recently. Athmosphere, service, food quality were fine but the food is overpriced, just too much money. Have visited more Italian Restaurants on our trip, who served delicious food for less money.

This was recommended to us by a Bostonian restaurateur and we were very pleased that we took his advice. The food was great. The sommelier was very helpful in selecting nice wines within the budget we gave him. Service was attentive. It's very crowded with...More

We started with mozzarella caprese, grilled octopus, meatballs all were delicious! The wine selection was good as well. Seafood risotto and wild boar pappadelle were the big hits. Homemade pasta, environment cozy but good for business too. Highly recommend.

Great find, hip upbeat Italian restaurant on the corner. Great walking distance from every point of downtown. Great action at the bar with very talented bartenders. Menu is point on with servers that are very Italian and know their stuff.

Our group of 4 had dinner. The service, food and ambience was excellent. We showed up a little early for our reservation and were immediately seated. I had the baked octopus. It was fantastic, spicy and very generous. I also had Ossobuco. It was some...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
