I can only assume this place has the number of high ratings it does because giddy tourists believe the toxically masculine, aggressive male servers' behavior is a relic of old Italy or is authentically Boston. I can assure you it is not authentically Boston; I've...More

Well like the title says I got the Lobstor Ravioli and loved it! A great rich sauce with spicy red peppers. My wife had pasta and loved it too. This place is a wait in line and it's worth it.

There will be a line.. probably hour to an hour and a half wait but it’s part of the experience! Meet some people in line and enjoy the experience! Small restaurant (hence the wait) but the food is delicious!!! Authentic Italian!! Very reasonably priced too!!

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

I don’t think so. They are very set upon traditional classic Italian and they do it quite well.

No. Get there early and get in line. We got there maybe 30 min before they opened and were in the first wave in.

I seem to recall they had some items which were gluten free. Their menu is online, check it out.
