This Italian neighborhood, Boston's oldest, is known for its wonderful restaurants and historic sights. Walk the cobblestone streets to take in the architecture and aromas of delicious food, and visit Paul Revere's house and the Old North Church...more

An area not to be missed! Full of amazing revolutionary history, ghost stories and mafia tales as well as amazing food from one of the best Italian neighborhoods in the USA.

The North End is located right downtown, adjacent to the Financial District and Haymarket. One of my favorite restaurants is The Daily Catch, located right on Hanover Street, the North End's main street. Just get there early, since it's a small place, and bring cash,...More

Visited on a late Saturday afternoon....long lines for all the best rated restaurants & pastry shops. Streets so crowded that it was difficult to make your way through the sidewalks. We came via cab & that was a smart move as there was no parking...More

Best Italian American Neighborhood in the country hands down. The North End has it all. Try Caffe dello sport for cappuccino and pastries and Carmelinas for an amazing dinner! I love the north end!

My average rating is due to not having enough time to explore this area. On the surface it looks well worth a good day (or longer) exploring. Saw Mike's Pastries - but queue too long. It is a short hop from Quincy Market to North...More

This part of the city is home to the Italian community with many restaurants along Hanover Street and side roads which cater for everyone of course. We felt very safe and enjoyed lunch at Pellino's which is just round the corner from Paul Revere's House.

Boston North End is a safe, clean and nice place to visit. It can be busy at times, but it was a pleasure walking on the streets of Boston's North End sector.

It may have been the head of the Charles boat races or the various games on the weekend I was there. But hanover street in North end was too crowded. I wanted to try the daily catch restaurant but gave up queuing after 40 minutes....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

Sorry to be so late with this response, been traveling :-) If you're looking for a true "lobster bake" you won't find that at a restaurant. Those types of things need to be catered. There are lines most everywhere unless... More
