We went mid-week - although still needed a booking. Very busy upbeat restaurant (we were seated upstairs so a little more subdued). Food is hearty (the veal chop was pretty big). Service was helpful and efficient. Good to try as a North End restaurant.

Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part

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
