I went here with my daughter for lunch on a weekend day. The place was packed! The food was tasty, and the portions were huge. We took leftovers to go and had dinner, too. The waitstaff was friendly, even if sometimes things seemed bit busy. I would definitely go back.

With not a table to be had for a party of 5 in at least 10 Italian restaurants in North End on a Saturday night we were happy to be told that Spagnuolos had an empty table. Hmmm in hindsight there is a reason behind this but when you have 3 hungry kids who are tired of walking you go... More

I probably should give it 1 star out of spite, but 1 1/2 stars isn't available, but to give my review more cred, I'll give it 2 to be nicer than they. The family was wandering around the North End on a Saturday night (stupidly) without reservations in a light rain. While out front of La Famiglia Spagnulo, the wife... More

We had what was probably the worst dining experience in our life. After sitting for two hours, and drinking two glasses of wine, the waitress loudly announced to the whole room that we got drunk while sitting there and did not tip her. We were just questioning that they included a 20% gratuity on to our bill for two people.... More

My boyfriend and I went there for dinner. They have 2 floors to serve food. Its a nice place and provide some great food. We had lobster ravioli for appetizer (amazing), the sauce was awesome! And we split the chicken Marsala with tortellini homemade pasta (it was delish). The dish is so big that both of us hungry fellas couldn't... More

Terrible food, rude and univiting. Don't get suckered in by the nice lady outside with her sweet Italian accent. Once your inside she's not so sweet

I should have googled before we stopped here!! My son had lobster ravioli, I had mushroom ravioli both tasted like they came out of a can- ugh!! My other son had spaghetti and meatballs and my husband had chicken marsala, also inedible! Maybe the pizza was the thing to order here, who knows because we would never go back!!

With almost every other pizza restaurant on Hanover Street in Boston queued out the door this place was empty but with 4 hungry kids we took a chance on it. Bizarre characters working in the place, ever so slow service and excuse after excuse as to why things weren't available. Pizzas were okay. In reality way to big as we... More

Stopped by for the house calzone and the house specialty lobster ravioli - both were very very good. The 5 point rating is for the food, service and family (as you can see in the name) atmosphere and operation. Not "fine" Italian but this was "fun" Italian and worth a stop. Now if you are a pretentious twit - stay... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
