The line usually extends around the corner which gives your spouse time to get pick up Cannoli from Mike's and hit the ATM (cash only at Giacomo's). The service was excellent and the food was superb. I had a Calamari and the chicken fettuccini. The...More

This was an amazing find ! The food was fantastic, close to the good hotels in Copely area, and very quaint. It is small and rustic inside with a lot of charm. Check it out !

I visited Giacomo's last week with my wife while on our trip to Boston. It came highly recommended and the food did not disappoint. I had the Special (which includes lobster and linguine) with the Diavolo sauce. We also had the calamari. Everything was good....More

This is hands down one of my favourite restaurants of all time. If you get there early, you won't have to wait long - if you don't get there early, then it is well worth the wait. Great value for amazing, Nonna style, authentic Italian....More

After an amazing luck at Whale Watching, it was time to end the day with good food. What better than authentic Italian food with people lined up outside just to get in. Amazing food 😊

Long line to get in which was okay since we expected that. We felt extremely rushed and it was cramped and hot once inside. Waitress wasn't attentive and rushed around like a chicken with it's head cut off. Food was fine although not as good...More

Glad I did my homework. Arrived at about 4:30 with already a line on a Sunday, July this year. And of course cash on hand. We had a special with lobster, clams, linguini and our choice of sauce. Food was good. Wait staff was attentive...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
