We dined at Strega for our 50th wedding anniversary upon the recommendation and reservations of the concierge at the XV Beacon (a fabulous hotel!) The hostess showed no emotion to us, no greeting or smile when we walked in, so my heart sank a bit,...More

Came for dinner with friends who wanted a good 'North End Italian' experience. Had a delicious mixed salad and great pasta dishes. Red sauce is great and the meatballs were out of this world. Friendly, attentive service. Would definitely return.

Stopped in for a drink. Good beer selection and a great sangria. Nice strong air conditioner on a hot Boston day. Very expensive food though.

This place is a total blast. If you are looking for a white tablecloth traditional Italian this is not the place. The food is fantastic but the atmosphere is LIVELY. Don't even think about coming here without a reservation.

Went for lunch with 11 people. Salads were great. Pasta ok. Sauces weren't bad, but I didn't like the pasta with my meal. Service was great as well as the atmosphere.

The North end is such a fun and beautiful place to visit in Boston. We all enjoyed our dinner here, and had very polite waiters who did not rush us. The lobster ravioli and crab/avocado appetizer were especially good. There is a row of TVs...More

We lucked into this restaurant walking down Hanover st and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Gianni was welcoming and gave us great recommendations. Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.

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

There's street parking but you would have to pay for that. If you can take local transportation it's much easier
