I've been going to the Daily Catch at Northend since 2009 when I lived in the area. Every time I go to Boston, it's my first port of call for a meal - my favorite is the Black Pasta with Calamari. Because the portions are large, I usually buy takeout. At my last visit (my last because I'm never going... More

OFF THE CHARTS! We waited for about an hour. It was well worth the wait! We didn't know what to order and the waiter was very helpful in helping us. We loved every bite!

Actually, the food was good but like all of tourist Boston, it was way over priced. Service was very good. We ate outside on the patio and it was a beautiful day and our server was very sweet. Only problem I had was the male greeter. At 5:00 in the afternoon he expected me to have a reservation. The place... More

Small, only 20 seats so it's a up close and personal experiences. Saw our lobster almost crawl of the chopping block before it became part of our meal. You can see everything being cooked to order. Went for the special; lobster, mussels, clams, shrimp and calamari with pasta. We shared and it was the perfect amount of food. We were... More

When was the last time you waited in line for dinner with no table clothes, plastic wine glasses, with only 7 tables for 2 or 4? This one is worth it!! Excellent seafood, wonderful local service without any frills.

Oh. Dear. God. Go. Eat. The. Calamari. Aglio. Olio. You cannot imagine how delicious this dish is...ground / chopped calamari, an insane amount of fresh garlic, chili flakes, white wine sautéed to perfection and served among the briny squid inky strands of al dente pasta. It is served in the sauté pan which not only keeps it hot...it's simply charming!... More

My fiance and I stopped here during our trip to Boston. portions were HUGE and the food was really good. I would almost suggest just getting one entree and splitting between two people. It seats MAYBE 20 people and we got there at the right time - by the time we left, the line was all the way down the... More

Nice view and right on the water. We had a great table outside. The hostess was great and the waiter was nice, but slooow. The food was fine. I got crab & lobster cakes that tasted fine but had a lot of breadcrumbs in them. The grilled asparagus was nice. The place was just fine, but not special except for... More

Other Daily Catches are "up market". They take reservations. Perhaps linen. But here the food is absolutely amazing. It is normal to stand OUTSIDE for your place. And expect to wait. We have often eaten there, but last time, we waited for two hours! Monk Fish Marsala is our fav. Last time I had shrimp in Alfredo sauce. Both certainly... More

Obviously, the owners decided to cash in on the cachet and popularity of the original location (which has no set menu, serves whatever gets caught, and has lines outside where people wait for nearly an hour to eat). This is not like that place at all. The offerings were no different than any other seafood place, except that the pasta... More

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
