Excellent food. We had the lobster ravioli and seafood pasta - delicious. Try the mozzarela caprese - the cheese was great. Topped it off with a canoli for dessert. Wonderful food.

After living in the North End for a little over a year, I've tried many Chicken Parmigiana's in the area. After recently getting take-out for the first time from here (yes, take-out), my partner and I agreed this was the best we've ever had. The pasta was homemade and the portions was huge. The sauce was also made to perfection.... More

This place was delicious. The service was initially kind of slow and it took a good 10 min before we got a waiter but it wasn't a huge deal. The waiter was really great. The food was very good and that's all that matters.

This is a Hidden Gem ! The service was very thoughtful and pleasant, they hit the mark on just right. Okay now food win-win great food. If only we lived closer.. but it's still worth it for their meal! Angelica was a perfect waitress! Thanks for the great meal we will be back.

The Quattro Carne is the best but most of the menu is awesome. It's usually packed and feels hectic in there. Part of the experience I guess.

We loved this place during our first visit in September 2014. This restaurant has recently expanded but we were fortunate enough to be seated in the old section, which is what I wanted. The eggplant appetizer was not quite warm enough when served but I was so ravenous it didn't bother me. The calamari is good but could use a... More

Several rooms have been toggled together with a couple of kitchens. It can be hot, not very pretty and chaotic but, heh, it's the North End. Order simply like four meats and you'll be happy.

My wife and I shared: Mozzarella Caprese Mom's Quattro Carni Ragu Appetizer: The mozzarella was soft and delicious, tomatoes fresh and juicy, with a light olive oil. The entree included meatballs, brasciola, sausage, and pork short ribs and homemade penne. The entree arrived lukewarm and we sent it back to the kitchen to be heated up further. -1 point for...

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
