This restaurant was recommended to us and did not disappoint. The food was amazing, the service top-notch and the atmosphere authentic. The fusilli was our favorite and the chicken parm was also very good. Reservations are recommended.

During our trip to Boston we enjoyed lunch at this restaurant, staff were attentive, menu impressive, food was delicious, best carbonara I've ever tasted. The decor was impressive and the atmosphere was great. A gem of a place. Would highly recommend.

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
