This Italian neighborhood, Boston's oldest, is known for its wonderful restaurants and historic sights. Walk the cobblestone streets to take in the architecture and aromas of delicious food, and visit Paul Revere's house and the Old North Church while you're in the neighborhood.

We walked through the North End each of the three days that we were in Boston. So fun to see all of the restaurants and other eateries mixed in with the historical buildings. It was a unique experience. The places we ate were all good...More

Visited here as part of Freedom trail, interesting to understand what was happening in the various places at different times in history

This is an historic neighborhood with adorable little streets, gorgeous architecture, and a lot of little Italian restaurants. There is very little parking, so walk if you're staying elsewhere in the city. Similar in style to Beacon Hill, I'd stay in this area next time.

Aside rom all the fascinating old architecture, tiny streets and delicious Italian restaurants beckoning you, there is a happy vibe about this area. We walked there from Fanueil Hall area & had already had lunch, but there's always pastry & gelato. Took an uber back...More

We came to the North End for dinner. We had hoped to find the quiet, tiny restaurant we had enjoyed during our last visit several years ago but couldn't remember it's name. No worries, every restaurant serves delicious food and the atmosphere is lively. This...More

Numerous Italian restaurants and all delicious! And it's history abound. Paul Revere's house, the North Church, and it's part of the freedom trail! All worth participating.

Never had a bad meal or bad pastry in the North End. We went twice while in Boston for 3 days. Very historic and quintessentially Boston.

If you're in Boston then walking through the North End is a must! The buildings are so old and beautiful. The food is incredible, almost every restaurant in the area is great!

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

Sorry to be so late with this response, been traveling :-) If you're looking for a true "lobster bake" you won't find that at a restaurant. Those types of things need to be catered. There are lines most everywhere unless... More
