G'vanni's is a small restaurant in the North End. The food is mostly "old school" red sauce dishes and the portions are quite large. Definitely worth a small wait, with decent house wines. The atmosphere is fun and everything we tried was very tasty.

We were here for our anniversary over Labor Day weekend and had a great time. The food was excellent! From the fresh baked warm bread to the salads to the entrees (with so many great bakeries in the North End we didn't have dessert here)....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

Located in the heart of the North End, G'Vanni's has been pleasing visitors and locals for many years. The cozy yet extremely colorful dining room is the perfect location for a romantic dinner or business meeting. The extensive menu includes such appetizer favorites as Butterflied Shrimp with organic tomato and Clams Oreganata with butter and crumbs. Salads include Pomodoro, a classic Italian tomato and fresh mozzarella and Antipasto Freddo with veggies, Italian cold cuts, cheese, tuna, and sardines. The rest of the menu includes Kobe Beef Meatballs, pasta, chicken, veal, pizza, fresh vegetables, and of course the freshest seafood available.
