Had dinner with my daughter and we both really enjoyed it. Seemed to have a neighborhood atmosphere. The hostess was quite a character in a good way. Food and wine were reasonably priced. Would go again.

We ordered 4 different things and loved them all! Very authentic. I would highly suggest this place!!! The pasta Alfredo, manicotti, pasta with meatballs, and the Special were amazing!

The menu seems fairly similar to others around but food is well prepared. I enjoyed a special which much like shrimp scampi; one guest enjoyed manicotti which got vacuumed up by the 5-year old. He just loved it! Eggplant parmigiana was also yummy. Two of...More

Found La Summa by chance on a family vacation two years ago. Food is still amazing! Loved everything we ordered! Only downside is no kid's menu (besides ordering a side of pasta) or kids drinks besides soda.

La Summa was recommended to us by a native Son of Italy and he was so right. We were treated like friends by the owner's daughter-in-law and later by Barbara, the owner. They gave great recommendations as to which of the many menu items to...More

La Summa became our family favorite in a single visit. We were walking down Fleet Street, stopped outside to read the menu, heard Sinatra playing, peeked in the door, and crossed our fingers we could get a table. The staff was extremely friendly, patient, and...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
