Gelato was delicious but pricy- about $5/dish. No places to sit so take it to go or sit on a nearby bench

Before visiting, I had never had gelato or cannoli so I can not compare my experience to other places. I can say both were good, but not something I'll dream about. If anything, it makes me wonder if these treats are meant to be better....More

3.8/5 I went Gelateria with family on a hot summer afternoon. It's a little shop with big open windows when the weather is nice. They serve gelato and cannoli, both of which look very appealing and delicious. I ordered the espresso gelato, which was a...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
