We just celebrated our dad’s 60th birthday at Tresca. It could not have been a more enjoyable experience. We were a party of 8 on a Saturday night; service was attentive and patient with us the entire evening. The meatballs, veal shank, and dessert assortment were highlights of the meal, but everyone greatly enjoyed their meals. The owner, Richard Ansara, stopped by the table and could not have been nicer. Overall, we had a wonderful evening and a memorable night for my dad. A special thanks to Sabad, who was our fantastic and patient server. More

We were a party of three visiting from out of town. Server was great, helpful, and informative about gluten free options. We shared the sautéed calamari for an appetizer. The bread brought to the table wasn’t anything great. I enjoyed the gluten free gnocchi with the vodka sauce and sausage. It was amazing! My husband had the fig salad and my son had a Quattro formaggio pizza. All was delicious! More

I've been coming to Lo Conte's since they opened almost 30 years ago and it's remains one of my favorite restaurants in the North End.

I highly recommend this over many of the new spots that have opened up over the years, consistently one of the best. More

Piccolo Nido

$$$$
Italian | North End, Boston

We live within walking distance of the North End and have been to many restaurants in the neighborhood, but this was our first visit to Piccolo Nido. It certainly won't be our last! The setting has plenty of North End charm, but it is refreshingly removed from the crowds on Hanover Street. We shared the Porcini Ravioli to start, and then had the haddock (catch of the day) in a lemon/white wine sauce, and the Veal Valdostana. The porcini ravioli was absolutely delicious (our favorite), but the fish and veal were excellent as well. The atmosphere was just right, and the acoustics of the room were such that it was possible to have an ordinary conversation without shouting. Highly recommended, especially if you want to be able to enjoy a quiet dinner for a date or special occasion. Looking forward to our next visit. More

We were so pleased with our experience at Ristorante Saraceno. There was no waiting for ur table, our waitress took our drink orders immediately and the dinners were excellent. I ordered the veal chop special. It was tender and juicy and stuffed with mozzarella and prosciutto, delicious. My husband said the lasagna was the best he's ever had. Kudos to the chef. More

Italian | North End, Boston

Small Italian restaurant featuring home-made pasta. Nice menu selections and wine list. Home-made bread served with eggplant relish and grated cheese, but bread was cold and would have preferred olive oil to dip bread. We had lobster ravioli and shrimp scampi, both very good, and alfredo which was a little bland but with grated cheese was fine. With so many Italian places on north-end, will probably try elsewhere if we are in Boston again. More

All of the Italian restaurants in the area are smaller in size. They were able to accommodate our party of 10 with a reservation (plan ahead if you are a group). Our server was attentive and the food was excellent. The menu features many classic dishes that you cannot go wrong no matter which was you go. None of our party left hungry thanks to generous portions at a reasonable cost. More

Battery Wharf Grille

$$$$
American | North End, Boston

When we walked in for our 1:00 lunch reservation on a Tuesday in August, the restaurant and bar were empty. The website has beautiful photos of the harbor from the outdoor seating. But, the indoor seating has limited, unremarkable views. I was worried that we made a huge mistake. However, the service was great and the food was delicious. I ordered a salad with crispy salmon. The salmon was perfectly cooked with crispy skin and tender meat. My friend is a big crab cake lover and said they were very good. The wine list was just ok. Bottles started at $50. But, the selection was not special. We were celebrating a birthday and wanted wine so we ordered the Chateau St. Michelle Riesling to go with fish. I often buy that wine at Trader Joe's for less than $15/bottle so it hurt a little to pay $50 even allowing for the service. I would recommend this restaurant for the food but not the views or wine.

Oysters, (esp. that time a grilled oyster special appetizer was on offer); Inspired cocktails. Well-chosen wine list. Together these elements keep us loving and coming back to North Sq Oyster. More
