This is another go to spot for me in Boston. Atmosphere: Small, counter order then either take out or they'll bring your order to your table. About 6-7 tables, casual dining. Service: Outstanding, always. Staff always comes over to check in and ask for feedback...More

Food here is excellent and in huge generous portions. I got the Italian sandwich with everything. Fresh bread, delicious cuts of meat, messy as heck but so delicious and really friendly staff.

We were looking for a place to eat around 9:30p.m. Everything was closing at 10:00pm, but the owner welcomed us into her restaurant. We didn't feel like we were being rushed. She was very friendly and chatted with us. To top it off, the food...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
