A Boston native, couldn't believe I'd never been here before. Best fried calamari ever. Shrimp and scallop fra diavolo was excellent -- and relatively inexpensive. Good service. A nice Gavi di Gavi accompanied dinner. Only comment: you are served your food when it's ready and...More

If I'm going to get any pasta dish in Boston proper, it has to be at Giacamo's in the North End. I don't eat seafood, but the pasta here is the best around. I could eat the butternut squash ravioli with asparagus and prosciutto every...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
