Though there are so many places to eat in Little Italy, we continue to return to Antico Forno because the food and service is unsurpassed. This is a family owned restaurant.

We were lured into this place believing it would be a good North End Italian meal, with a more authentic touch. The only thing authentic about it is the ingredients, otherwise it's the same generic American Italian food you'd find at any Olive Garden. The...More

We have been here many times over the past 8-10 years and there is a reason it is always crowded. It is consistently good, especially for larger groups and families since it is not very quiet. The portions are of good size, the menu is...More

First time eating in Boston and our tour guide said her friend recommended this place. Well she was right. We enjoyed a thin crust pizza and mussels. Both did not disappoint. Excellent, friendly service and the wait was not too long. Interesting decor also. Will...More

With hundreds of restaurants in the North End, I would have expected better. My husband really liked his Margherita pizza, but I was not moved by my linguini and clams. It was prepared inside paper and baked, a little odd, but okay. But there was...More

Can't say I have been to many Italian restaurants in this area, but I thought it was good. It was a bit crowded when we went, due to a party of around 25 people (made it difficult to navigate to our table), but we didn't...More

The visit was a little dissapointing, as we were expecting the restaurant to be much better. We reserved a table for 7 pm and on arrival were asked to wait 5 minutes. Little did we know that it would actually be 45 minutes. We could...More

We had dinner here because the wait was only 20 minutes and it looked like a fun place. Everything was what we expected except the food. We each had a pasta dish and found both to be bland and really not very good. The price...More

Always love antipasto and cheese pizza. The service is fast and friendly. The wood fired stove makes the pizza taste that much better. Lots of good food here but I'm dining light.

My wife and I with another couple went to this restaurant for lunch with no reservation. Luckily there were about two tables left. Salem Street is right off of Hanover St so the restaurant is near everything. It was pretty crowded inside, not much room...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
