This is a great Italian option outside the north end. It's also very close to fenway but not the crowds. Try the spinach gnocchi, done sort of like a carbonara, and sit outside if the weather is nice.

Canestaro is a quiet little italian restaurant on a quiet residential street near Fenway Park. We got there early as we had to be somewhere at 7:00 so for a while we were the only ones. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive even after the place got busy. All of our meals were delicious. The sauce was light and tasty and the garlic breadsticks were very good. The pizza was nice and crispy. We also had stuffed shells, meatball grinder, raviolis, spaghetti, and linguine bolognese. Everything was very good. The prices were very reasonable considering it's Boston. Not over priced at all. I would definately go back again.

My family go to the restaurant before most red sox games. The food is reasonable in price, consistently good , and there is both inside and outside seating. It is a hidden jewel of a restaurant near Fenway park.

Great food, friendly and efficient (no pressure) staff and great value. The pasta dishes are made fresh to order .... homemade sauces, incredible pizza (the best, really) and generous portions.

We had a very enjoyable dinner here before the Red Sox game. We sat outdoors on the patio which is covered in the case of rain. The restaurant was not crowded but it should be because the food and service were excellent. It is located just one block from Fenway Park on a very quiet residential street. We ordered the Scampi Pizza and it was excellent.
