Walked into the North End on a Saturday night at 7:30 and managed to get a great table at Lucia's (nicest staff), have a terrific dinner, and linger as long as we wanted. We walked over to Mike's Pastries after and, even though it was...More

I have been in the North end a couple of times and both of them were very disapointing. The last time me and my boyfriend went there, we sat at 3 resturants before we could decide where to eat. The places are super small and...More

Nothing like a fresh cooked meal by New England Italians. The north end is a unique place to visit in boston.

North End
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

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
