We used TripAdvisor to find a good Italian restaurant in North Boston on a Friday night. Several of them had long lines out the door, and don't take credit cards. Limoncello, however, does take them, and while they had no reservations available, we were able...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
