We walked to the area from our hotel. Lovely walk, lots of history to see. Easy to find. The restaurant was written up in a travel book so we tried it. We had to stand in line, but it was well worth it. A must...More

This place was recommended and we were told to get there early as it's first come, first serve. Fortunately for us we didn't have to wait long, but if you do, it's worth the wait. We had the special of pasta and seafood. Excellent! Pricing...More

No credit cards. No reservations. No bar. No B.S. Amazing Italian and seafood. What else do you need to know?

It may feel like it’s hotter than the surface of the sun in this restaurant - especially during a 100f heat wave - but the food is worth it! The line outside moves quickly for couples, but larger groups will have to wait longer as...More

You know you're in the right place when there's a line to get in before it opens and the surrounding restaurants are asking why you aren't coming to their establishments! Not fine dining, more casual and fun. Once you get in and seated, you'll know...More

You will most probably have to wait in line awhile before a table is available but is worth the wait. Love the staff almost as much as I love the food. One of my favorite places to eat in the world.

Really great Italian food at really great prices!! Problem is almost always a line out the door. Is it worth it? You decide. Cash only

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
