We had a lovely little lunch, perfect Italian experience. food was delicious and nicely cooked. Wish there wasn't a TV - very distracting.
We went to Canestaro's before a Red Sox game on the recommendation of a friend (who didn't end up meeting us). It was pretty close to Fenway, but the prices were very reasonable and it wasn't crowded. The staff was very friendly and warm. It wasn't anything fancy - just a nice family style Italian restaurant/pizzeria. I had Penne Alla... More
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.

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.

It is hard to believe that people want to eat in the crowd at Fenway when they could walk to this pleasant spot. They let me hold a table while my friend found a place to park. The food was good and we made it in time for the opening pitch.
Set in a cute neighborhood just blocks from Fenway park, we really enjoyed this place. It has both outdoor and indoor seating. We chose outdoor, given the 80 degree temperature that day. They have very good pizza, and good service. We were very happy with this neighborhood restaurant. It also has a bit of a view of the park, which... More
We like to eat here before the Red Sox games. It is within a short walking distance to Fenway Park on a residential side street. Very relaxing atmosphere...nice and clean and good food and service.
