Good food, good atmosphere, good service describes Il Panino. Plenty of room, so a reservation isn't absolutely necessary. Staff is helpful, friendly and attentive. Special of the day was pumpkin ravioli - a bit sweet, but tasty. Restaurant is popular, so it can be a...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

There weren't any children there. I suggest you call and ask if they have one or if they possibly do half orders.

I am sorry but I cannot answer that question as my family doesn't have any food allergies for dairy and soy. I would recommend calling them. Great place.

I'm not sure how extensive the gluten-free choices are, but my husband was able to get a gluten-free pasta for the dish he ordered.
