We decided to have an authentic Italian meal on our second night. We headed off looking for one that had a good menu. We found one but they didn't have any seats available till later in the evening so we moved on to one that...More

Pellinos looked quaint and inviting so we stopped in for dinner. We were greeted by Natalia who made us feel welcome by her attentive nature. As we looked over the menu, warm crusty bread along with sides of sweet eggplant compote and grated parmigiana were...More

The service was good, the ambience was nice, the food average.Pasta was good but neither me nor my wife liked the chicken in the pasta (a little tough and not cut up)

Very disappointing. It was not busy. This should have been my first clue. We always like to try a new restaurant in the north end. Usually you can't go wrong. When we were in the area last week, we chose another restaurant and it was...More

I was disappointed of the food quality- pasta was dry, I would have made it much better myself at home. Seafood didn't taste the freshest either. Both, mine and my husband's entrees were not great and won't be coming back.

Just off the main street of little Italy in Prince street but was able to get a table quickly. Choice of pasta, seafood and veal was great. Service ok and the meals were promptly served. Would certainly go back.

Hadn't planned on Italian food, but sure glad we popped into Pellino's. The bread was warm and homemade, as was the pasta. Mmmmm! Service was exceptional and friendly. Ordered dessert as well, was told we had to wait 20mins for chocolate lava cake as they...More

I was very pleased with this restaurant. My family was seated and served very quickly and the bruschetta was absolutely delicious.

Bruschetta was good and fresh. Pleasant grilled bread and decent tomatoes for July. Adequate but not life changing. Pesto gnocchi was meh. Sauce creamy rather than oily and gnocchi gummy. Kids ordered plain ziti and got plain spaghetti. Not worth sending back. Otherwise service was...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
