Great Italian food and excellent service. The waiter was very friendly and efficient. The food was great. We all liked our dishes. We ordered the meatball as an appetizer and it was fantastic. The decor is also nice. Upstairs and downstairs seating.

We are strict Brahmins and so vegetarians. We had ordered a salad with no meat and were served calamari and octopus. We also clearly mentioned we were vegetarians. When complained the dumb lady was arguing that seafood is not meat. Awful experience.

Had a delightful meal here with my son. Enjoyed the artichokes margarita and veal Virginia with a glass of chianti. Food was delicious and bountiful. Service from Zachary was outstanding. Truly a must visit destination in the North End!

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
