Worth the wait! Seafood is fresh! Portions are large. Everything was very good! Tables turn quick but we were not rushed! We had fried calamari and Caesar salad, chicken Marsala, chicken and shrimp pesto sauce, and fruitti del mare.

The best Italian seafood I ever had. It is a family own restaurant. Ingredients are fresh and not expensive at all.

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
