The restaurant is very cute - very authentic and lovely inside. However, the food had much left to be desired. We ordered the Caprese, which is a favorite of ours. The tomatoes were anemic and the basil merely had a couple of flakes on top with just a few sprinkles of olive oil. Very bland. The bread served before our... More

Returned to area and as tradition demands made the pilgrimage to Pagliuca's. As with every visit the food was outstanding and the staff great. A little noisy but given it was graduation week very tolerable. Food was excellent as usual and individually prepared. Looking to next chance to visit but will try to avoid graduation week.

pagliuccas is just off Hanover and the food matched anything on the main street. Waitresses are typical Italian folks, who focus on delivery, not show. the food is outstanding and on warm days you can sit up front and watch foot traffic go by. Prices are very reasonable

There are dozens of decent Italian restaurants in the North End, and this is a fair example. They do have good wine options, and as a solo business traveler, they did make me feel welcome.

In Little Italy, there are so many Italian restaurants to choose from it is downright overwhelming. My husband and literally just picked one today and walked into Pagliuca's Ristorante. We're very glad we did! It felt authentic and not too Americanized. Lunch was delicious and service was kind and prompt. House wine was very good, and we enjoyed our tiramisu... More

We were in town visiting friends (hockey fans) and stopped in to Joe's place before a game. It did not disappoint. The dishes are amazing, The sangria quenched our thirst, the tiramisu was to-die-for and the "you are family now" service was top-notch. Eat HERE.

My friend, who lives near Boston and has been coming to this restaurant for 15 years, has been telling me about Pagliuca's for as long as I've know him. He's also told me about an amazing waitress named Charlotte, who's worked there for decades. I was worried that my expectations were set so high I was destined to be disappointed.... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
