We got in line at Giacomo's around 4:45 on a Thursday, and only had to wait about 30-45 minutes. It was so worth the wait. We ordered the Calamari as an appetizer and it was the best I ever had. So good! This is the...More

Great food, friendly and helpful waitress, did I say great food? Couldn't decide on seafood or Italian so we settled on both. Had to wait a bit to get inside but they move the tables without rushing you, most places can't pull that off.

Giacomo's has some of the best italian sauces I have ever had - the marinara sauce for the calamari is amazing (and the calamari the freshest I have ever tasted). The cream sauce on the lobster ravioli was fabulous, as was their marsala. Everyone in...More

While you have to queue and wait in line by the strict matron it's more than worth the time. Very reasonable and good is gorgeous with very efficient service. A must if visiting Boston. Wine $20.00!

So we know the story of this restaurant. It is on everyone's must try list and the North End location always has that line outside breathlessly waiting to get in. We decided to venture to the line and wait the requisite hour+ to get seated...More

Having visited many times in the past, this last visit was disappointing. Too busy, food delayed and service rushing you out. Previously, service was fun and expected quick turn over, but this visit was too rushing you out the door., Plates cleared before finished and...More

THis small and bustling Italian restaurant, felt like a slice of Italy. The seafood dishes were varied and fresh, the sauces spiced to perfection. The portions were very generous tempting you to eat too much. Take the entire family with you, but make a reservation...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
