Nice atmosphere, tasty food, and awful service. Lovely setting, almost European feeling with small tables, brick wall and store front windows. Comfortable setting. The food was good, not the best Italian I ever had but was still good. Service was meh...I was initially given a wine glass with lipstick on it (not mine), had to ask for a few items,... More

We have been going to Lo Conte's for nearly 20 years and have yet to have a disappointing experience. This is a family run restaurant that specializes in good, traditional, Italian food. Our kids have grown up eating here and refuse to go anywhere else in the North End. Eating there on New Year's Eve has become a family tradition... More

Portions were generous. Atmosphere was relaxed and charming. We loved the butternut squash ravioli - It was the best I have ever tasted! Good service and the waiter had a dry sense of humor1 We loved our evening and will definitely return to sample the eggplant next time! I heard so much about it!

We actually read the poor reviews on trip advisor regarding the rude waitstaff before we went but there were so many positive reviews we decided to give it a try. It seemed like a cozy place at first and smelled wonderful. However, from the start our waiter seemed in a rush. After he took our order and brought our food... More

We happened upon this restaurant while walking around. Menu was in the window so you could see what they served and the prices. Lots of great seafood/pasta choices. Staff were extremely attentive and helpful.

We tried this place on a Groupon. We have a lot of favorites in the North End but figured we'd take a chance given the discount. When we arrived, I went to use the restroom. There was no soap. I made due and told a waiter after. The service was poor. There were four of us, three ordered a salad... More

We made a reservation and got right in. The sangria was yummy. Loved the bread and the pasta. Dinner was slow to arrive, but the atmosphere and service were great. We really enjoyed the whole experience.

I had a gluten free bolognaise that was fantastic! Portions were great and it came out pipping hot, just how it should! We made reservations through yelp and got a great window table. The experience was great but the service left something to be desired. I brushed it off though, since it was a family owned restaurant, however our experience... 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.
