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

The fresh seafood is cooked in the dining area! Everyone is eating ''in the kitchen''. Good food, good price, atmosphere is flavorful and people wait in line to get packed into the place! It is not your candle lit romantic place. It's busy and packed! Just look in the windows and you can see for yourself!

Really nice atmosphere on the water. Started with chowder and garlic bread. I chose scallops with linguine in a fra diavolo sauce. It had just the right amount of heat. My girlfriend had broiled scallops which were also delicious. Our waiter Tomas was attentive and kept a watchful eye on us. Highly recommended. Moderate prices. Great atmosphere.

This restaurant seats maybe 20-24 people and only takes cash. From what I'm told there is a line outside that stretches a few store lengths every day because people know a good meal. The Linguini with clams was exquisite, and the rest of my family ate shellfish with marinara and a combination meal. Somehow we bypassed the crowd when we... More

Looking the review should be delicious restaurant. We went there for lunch. We came at the right time no need for queuing. The restaurant very small but very busy. We order agio olio for me not very tasty. What great about the food, I don't understand

When my husband and I visited family in Plymouth years ago, our trips always included a trip to The Daily Catch for lunch or dinner. This year, after 17 years of not getting to MA, we included Boston on our family road trip with our now 18 and 15 year old sons; we wanted them to experience the awesome food... More

After the recommendation from the concierge I went to the Daily Catch with great anticipation- only to be greatly disappointed. The restaurant is extremely small . In fact the seat which I was at you could not literally get your legs completely underneath the table. Water was served in a plastic cup. The cook literally was arguing very loudly with... More

Small intimate place with limited seating. No reservations and cash only. The pasta and seafood are fantastic. Reasonably priced. Would love to visit again. Also try the broccoli.

We ate at the bar, as we arrived without reservations, and the place was fully booked on a weeknight. The bartender took excellent care of us, and the lobster with squid ink pasta was absolutely outstanding. I'd go back anytime.

Thank Larry C

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.
