It is like being in Italy. Wonderful food. Great prices. We stopped in for lunch and was glad we did. I chose broccoli, fussili with sausages. I was glad it was not tomato sauce because I loved the buttery olive oil sauce. It was light...More

Best meal I had in Boston during my week long vacation. We had the lasagna and ziti with broccoli from the lunch menu. They were both perfectly prepared, fresh and hot. The bread was also hot and fresh. Loved the atmosphere with a cool breeze...More

The 4 of us just randomly pick this restaurants for lunch while exploring Boston on a Saturday. Everybody had red sauce dishes but me. I had the veal saltibocca which was delicious. Everybody had a nice meal and the service was friendly and efficient.

randomly stopped for lunch. Food was excellent! I was dying for Carbonara and it was amazing! My aunt had the veal parm and she loved it. Worth checking out.

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
