Recommended by concierge. The minute we turned onto the street I knew we were in for a treat. The little Italy section of Boston is comparable to that of the Bronx. Delicious food, wonderful service and packed house.

Very nice meal and service in The North End/Italian section of Boston. The food was very good, servers were nice and dining area is charming.

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
