Panza was recommended to us by a Boston local. What a great place! Service was great and friendly. Our meals were huge and delicious. Salmon was done perfectly and it was a huge piece. We would definitely recommend Panza to anyone.

Panza is my all time favorite restaurant in the North End of Boston! This tiny little shop makes some of the best chicken parm and pasta dishes I have ever had. Also their prices are SUPER RESONABLE! Chicken parm was only $16 or $17 for...More

Searching through the north end of Boston for a restaurant to have lunch, we came across this delightful place. The menu is small, but interesting, as too is the location. The mussels in fra diavolo sauce was very good, followed by an equally good sausage...More

We were walking the entire Freedom Trail in Boston and decided to stop in here for lunch, since this Little Italy area is pretty much in the middle of the trail. The décor is authentic, neighborhood Italian and the place is pretty clean. The kitchen...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
