One of the few spots in the north end that seemed to allow booking reservations on Open Table. Staff can be gruff and speak roughly to one another but the food is delicious and reasonably priced for the area. The ambience is open front (nice...More

If you’re looking for authentic delicious food in the North End, try this small, intimate spot. Definitely reserve a table. We sat in the tiny entry room with the window open & the sidewalks busy with pedestrians. There’s seating in the basement and in a...More

Strolling through the Italian quarters in Boston, found this gem for lunch. The porcini mushroom ravioli were superb, the baby octopus as well even though it was a bit on the salty side. True Italian with Italian speaking friendly staff, would recommend this place without...More

Not only did I get to eat 8 inches away from strangers but every time their server came his butt was right by my face. I also got to sit in what felt the middle of where everyone walked. Let’s hope the food is ok...More

This is absolutely, hands-down the best Italian food I’ve ever had! The atmosphere was great, the servers were great, and the food was clearly handmade and fresh! My husband had Veal, and I had pasta. The servings were huge! Although his food was good, he...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.
