I would give this place 3.5 stars if the app allowed. Located smack in the middle of the bustling north end's "Little Italy" the atmosphere is probably pretty similar to any of the other good restaurants in this popular section of Boston. Although parking on the street is a rat race, there are a few very large, accessible public parking... More

First time to Florentine as the other place we wanted to go was closed. Very cute and quaint. I ordered the lobster ravioli. To die for!! I mean yes it was super heavy and killed my diet but everything about it was perfection. Service was also quick and friendly. Really great place!

This place was excellent! Well priced, and nearly impossible to pick a fish off the menu! We all ordered something different and everything was great! It is small and charming with friendly service!

There were 17 in our party on Sunday, April 16, 2017. Six were running the marathon the next day (Patriots Day, Monday, April 17, 2017) and the other ten were family/friends. I tried to book a restaurant on Sunday with very negative responses, but the folks at Florentine Café were more than willing to accommodate our party of 17. We... More

Had the best Italian outside Italy. Clean fresh ingredients. Has an amazing cheese ravioli. Sat in a table overlooking a little garden with Madonna. Very atmospheric.

The absolute best place in the North End. Adorable atmosphere, delicious wine, INCREDIBLE food! This will definitely be my "go to" place in the area. And the waitress was absolutely lovely as well! FIVE STARS

We were immediately greeted by a very friendly host/manager upon entering the Florentine Cafe and promptly escorted to a spacious table. Anyone familiar with the North End of Boston knows that spacious is unusual in most of the restaurants in thei neighborhood. We started the evening with the fried calamari. The crisp little calamari rings and legs were accompanied by... More

My husband and I were in the north end on a Sunday around lunch time. Surprisingly, the majority of restaurants in this area were closed! The Florentine Cafe was one of the few that was open. The place was packed so we sat at the bar, but it was ok because they had full meal service at the bar. Our... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
