They were able to kill (twice) all the fish dishes. Tuna was unacceptable with a gross dressing, the Haddock was tinny, salty, greasy and with too much bread crumbs. The bread is a goowy 3 days old. Bottom line, not on our list any more....More

We ate lunch here and I had the black pasta with squid that everyone raves about. It was okay, not one of my favorites, but I guess it's personal taste. The place is TINY and stuffy. I wouldn't wait in line to get in here.

I got to tell you first impressions were not to good. We entered the restaurant and was told somewhat abruptly to wait outside. There were people in front of us they were waiting 45 minutes. We waited patiently although there were several parties who were...More

The linguine with scallops entree served in the frying pan was delicious, although at $25 a bit expensive for a lunch entree in a small restaurant requiring many diners to share a table with others. The waiter, a member of the owner's family, keeps things...More

I was there today, excellent seafood. But let me tell you, the owner/manager had horrible and short manners when he greeted me. Stocky guy, Italian looking, green T-shirt. To tell you the truth, he acted like he was just out of jail. Nice Chinese cook...More

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
