Brought out of town guests for brunch. Had the best waiter ever, Alessandro--incredible ! Food was excellent and very fairly priced. Bloody Mary's and Mimosas are $3. Absolutely best place for brunch in the North End!! A great value!!

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
