Owner description: This Italian neighborhood, Boston's oldest, is known for its wonderful restaurants and historic sights. Walk the cobblestone streets to take in the architecture and aromas of delicious food, and visit Paul Revere's house and the Old North Church while you're in the neighborhood.

Walk down Hanover St in the North End and find many restaurants, bakery as well as a cheese shop. There are so many good restaurants to list.

Other than the parking situation, we love the North End. You can't go wrong when choosing from the dozens of restaurants. However., we try and stay away from the "glitzy" looking restaurants and gravitate toward the smaller "hole in the wall" places. They always seem to be better.
Love the atmosphere, the food, the people, the locals, the tourists, the energy...the food!!

Nice old Italian section of Boston. Great restaurants and great pastries. The Modern Pastry shop is the best. Many great restaurants along three or four streets. A must for the Boston Traveler.

The suggestion is to allow 1-2 hours...I say you can spend the entire day here! It also depends when you decide to visit. During the day, walk, shop, and sightsee. The North End includes a rather significant portion of the Freedom Trail. Copps Hill burial ground is on the far side of the neighborhood but offers interesting exploration in one of the oldest cemeteries in Boston (as old as Granary? not sure about that but not far behind!). For lunch and dinner, there are many restaurants and depending on who you are with will determine what you pick. A family with younger children? Pizzeria Regina, La Famiglia to name a few... an intimate dinner for 2? depends on how much you want to spend but search TripAdvisor for the perfect spot! DO NOT MISS Caffe Vittoria for dessert/coffee/cordials and of course, people watching. Sit on the 'old side' for the best ambiance - this place has been there for years and is so authentic North End. Enjoy!

Walking around the North End reminded us of many trips to the charming villages in Italy and France. Cobblestone streets lined with enticing restaurants, pastry shops, fresh pasta, wine, and cheese shops created an Old World atmosphere. The people we encountered were friendly and happy to point out their personal favorites when asked for suggestions for a lunch spot.
