The north end is a nice area to roam around, Italy is in it´s arms but no italian piazzas. We have sampled some of the restaurants but they are little too much americanized in their cuisines.

Must visit in Boston. Houses little Italy with lots of very good restaurants, bakeries, pastries. Even if you are not hungry, stop by! The architecture is different from the rest of Bosten and it's nice to just stroll around.

What a great place to walk around and just take in the sites. Restaurants galore if you can’t find a place to eat I guess you’re not hungry. The buildings are beautiful the walk is enjoyable. Historical things along the way. Just a nice place...More

Great area! However all restaurants are small and hard to get in to so make sure you make reservations a few days in advance. Many restaurants take cash only and some don’t accept reservations. Would definitely go back .

This area is full of history. We used the hop-on-hop-off bus and had a wonderful tour. This has the feel of old town rather than a modern city.

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

I love the Harborside Inn, as it's a quick walk over there and a great location.

Sorry to be so late with this response, been traveling :-) If you're looking for a true "lobster bake" you won't find that at a restaurant. Those types of things need to be catered. There are lines most everywhere unless... More
