We got there when they opened at 4:30 so we got a table quickly. Within 30 minutes the place was packed, and it was a Monday night. Loved the food. Service was great. Very affordable. I had the homemade Fusilli with lobster and shrimp. It...More

I ate here for the first time last night for dinner. It's a small place and very popular, so be prepared to wait in line outside for a table for dinner. Fortunately, we only had about a 20 minute wait. The service was top notch...More

Giacomo's is a Boston institution. While the wait time is positively horrendous -- an hour at least -- the food more than makes up for it. The first time I went to this Giacomo's location was in the middle of January with my boyfriend and...More

The restaurant is not big enough to accommodate a lot of people. We had to wait in the line waiting for the restaurant to open. I guess our waiting has paid off. The food is nice, delicious and has the Italian flavor. Service was also...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

Not a wine consumer but I agree that the wait is worth it. Hope you go and have the great experience we had.
