My family are off the boat Italian, and this is the real deal. Homemade pasta and pizza is outstanding. Cannot go wrong with any dish at this little gem.

This eatery is located on RICHMOND, a side street to Hanover, the famous thoroughfare that goes through Little Italy, a small but history filled neighbourhood continuously inhabited since 1630s. So, the neighbourhood is atmospheric for a pretty or post dinner stroll. Highly recommended. The dinner...More

On a beautiful night in Boston, we landed at Monica's again. We had reservations for 6 and were seated quickly and promptly waited on. Exceptional appetizers and entrees all served at our pace. Always a great meal and service.

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed brunch on a Sunday morning. Rather thank getting a pastry to go from a bakery, we opted to sit down and enjoy a warm meal and were not disappointed. Portions were not only large, but also delicious. We sat...More

We loved the food at this restaurant in the North End. Their pasta is made on the premises and was fantastic. The restaurant was quite busy so we were glad we had a reservation.

This palace is the best. Make a reservation way in advance and show up in advance of your time. They value promptness. The menu and wine have something for everyone. Our group of four started with the antipasto platter. It was loaded with, cheeses, meats,...More

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
