This great restaurant located in old Boston has great food and great service. Be sure to take advantage of the convenient valet parking out front. The wine and food selection was fantastic and everything we tried was amazing.

We had a mainly tasty meal but the Eggplant appetizer was a definite letdown, and our table for two was awkward. To their credit the Anna Maria Meatball appetizer was delicious as was the Seafood entree.

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
