The service here is terrible to non-existent. I have gone twice in the past month and left TWICE because I'm ignored by the wait and bar staff. With all the other options around, I wouldn't go here. Try Tia's, Vito's, Parla, Bricco, Mare, Monica's, Quatro,...More

The only possible reason someone is ignored is if they have perhaps had a few too many when they come in......

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
