Comfortable, not crowded, very good service. The Cesar salad was quite good. The eggplant parmesan was soggy, not to my taste, and unreasonably expensive at $21. The imported pasta that comes with it would better be replaced with something freshly made. We also had the...More

This is a nice cozy Italian restaurant on a side street in Little Italy. The food was very good and the service attentive but not intrusive. It was reasonably priced as well. By being off the main streets it was a little quieter and no...More

This restaurant was off the beaten path and we would have missed it had we not been taking a shortcut. The fresh pasta sign first attracted us while we were exploring mid day. We spoke with a friendly waitress who showed us the dinner menu,...More

Small, but nice - delicious food. Service was great too. We had the homemade gnocchi which was done perfectly and had a nice, marinara that was on the lighter, sweeter side. There are soooo many restaurants to choose from on the North End - this...More

The food here is fantastic! It's not a big place at all, but good things do come in small packages! The food was worth it and worth the price. A definite must if you want true Italian!

Non tourist stopped here for what I hoped would be some good Italian comfort food. Got the $7.50 bait and switch "sparkling water" to start. Lunch special menu seemed like a good deal, but I asked about the difference in plate sizes from the dinner...More

Had a meal with my wife and we enjoyed excellent appetizers. entrees and dessert. I especially recommend the Divers Scallops Agrodolce. My wife enjoyed her pan roasted mussels as an appetizer - the broth was phenomenal.

On an unusually warm February night, we ventured into Pellino's as we were attracted by the open windows to the sidewalk. We were seated right away but then felt the serving process was a little rushed. I had angel hair with meatballs, my wife had...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
