We found this little gem while touring Boston on a drizzly Sunday. When we walked in, the server told us that they were changing over from brunch to lunch and it would be about 10-15 minutes before they could serve us but we could sit at a table in the meantime. The restaurant is small (maybe 12 tables) but so charming! The owner left and came back with a huge bag of delicious bread from a local bakery that was still warm. He came over and talked with us,sharing stories along with other great places to visit. The food was definitely worth the wait! We both had the lobster ravioli and it was wonderful. The pasta was cooked perfectly, the lobster filling overflowing, and the vodka sauce creamy! We had to ask for more bread so we could sop up all the sauce! Would love to go back sometime for their brunch!

I was looking for a place to get breakfast, which is hard to do in the North End, but I stumbled upon La Galleria 33! The scones are to die for and everyone was so nice! Definitely coming back!

The North End of Boston (Little Italy) has over a hundred wonderful Italian restaurants to choose from. Unfortunately, we don't eat at enough of them because this is the first place we went to for dinner (we have been to Boston quite frequently lately from the west coast) and it was just delicious. The Caesar salad is perfect and you must have the tortellini!!! Homemade and just melt in your mouth delicious. Pat is the sweetest server and makes your visit worth every penny. (it is quite affordable too). He will also give you lots of great reccomendations for Boston as well. We return for the food...and Pat!

Yes the atmosphere is great, but the food, ah the food. Priced right, great value. The salami plate appetizer not be be missed and both entrees were superb. The North End in Boston has plenty of can't miss restaurants and this is one of them.

After being rudely turned down at the Neptune Oyster Bar, we took a short stroll down the street to La Galleria 33. Although they were not aware of our devastating experience at the Neptune, they greeted us like royalty and we were quickly ushered to a nice table by the window. It was getting late but there were still quite a few patrons in the place. We ordered wine and carefully perused the menu. Lisa, one of the owners, came over to welcome us to her restaurant and proceeded to give us some history about La Galleria. She and her sister had opened the establishment a few years ago just down the road from their parents place. Although quite anxious to maintain family tradition, they want to make this place their own. Lisa is quite the hostess with a bubbly personality and a determination to succeed. She told us about us about being approached by the producers of "Kitchen Nighmares" and agreeing to take part in the show although the locals seemed to appreciate the cuisine and they were doing a fairly good trade. Ramsay made minor changes to the decor which were very well received but took some of the traditional fare off the menu which were quite popular and did not make many other changes except encourage them to stick to all homemade foods including their tiramisu which came from an updated version of the traditional recipe.

After a wonderful Caprese Salad with the freshest of buffalo cheese, we had some lobster raviolis in a tomato sauce. Although the sauce was basic and somewhat uninspired, the large raviolis were stuffed with an abundance of fresh lobster... HMMM!

Lisa brought a large portion of Tiramisu over as a treat although we had not ordered dessert. I can not eat Tiramisu as I have an allergy to coffee but my husband is a diehard fan and claims that this was the best Tiramisu he has ever had! If you knew my husband, you would realize that this must have been a pretty big deal!

Thanks to Lisa and her staff for making us feel special and for her passion and enthusiasm. I wish you and your sister much success and we will definitely drop in again on our next trip to Boston!
