Stopped off for a glass of wine, decided to add some garlic bread. Late afternoon on a rainy Tuesday. No crowd. Owner was gracious as he hustled us as we walked by. House wines were inexpensive and good. We were shaking off a mediocre lunch...More

We had lunch in this Boston restaurant and found it to have great food that was VERY reminiscent of places I've actually eaten in Italy. It just has that feel, from the food to the inside of the dining room. Unfortunately, it also has "Italian-style...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
