The black pasta was good - was there solo and the starter portion was good for one. The best part of the meal was watching the chef single handedly cooking 10 dishes at the same time. The open kitchen format is great.

At first we were unsure - you have to wait in line on the sidewalk (they won't call you when your table is ready), it is small and cramped and you have to sit with strangers but the seafood was super fresh and yummy. You...More

I was disappointed this trip. Several years ago I had a great meal. This time it was terrible. Seems like the swordfish I had was killed under a heat lamp. Plus the cost was out of line! I'll reconsider going back the next time.

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

I didn't see one when I was there but I guess that doesn't mean they don't have one. The only menu they had when I was there was a hand written menu on a chalkboard mounted to the wall. I just went back and examined my... More
