Seafood | North End, Boston

We were quite happy with MOST of our food last night, but sadly had one major complaint. The Bolognese was not a normal bolognese, and that was most disappointing! It was not a tomato red sauce but a white cheese sauce, which was not at all what we wanted. The scallop dish was delicious, as was the octopus appetizer was also great; both had a beautiful presentation as well. Crab cakes were quite small, but tasty. We had a nice pinot grigio which wasn't expensive. In fact the prices on the whole were very reasonable. Really too bad the waitress, who raved about ALL the food, didn't share the unusual preparation of the bolognese. More

This was my 3rd time having dinner in the North End for Italian food, and this was my favorite place so far. It was a Saturday night and the windows were open and it was vibrant with great atmosphere. Delicious cocktails and terrific service. The food was excellent! We had the octopus appetizer and I had the gnocchi and my husband had another pasta. We had the bread pudding which was recommended by our waiter and it was incredible. We will be back! More

Italian | North End, Boston

OUTSTANDING! My husband and I are still talking about how good our meals were. I ordered the fusilli and my husband got the seafood ravioli, and both meals were beyond excellent. I am recently dairy free, and as a cheese lover, I was nervous about finding a dairy free meal in the North End that would be tasty. Taranta did not disappoint, the pasta was homemade and the Peruvian spin on my meal was delicious. I rarely give 5 star reviews, but Taranta deserves it. My only complain was we didn't enjoy the atmosphere of the upstairs, it was a little too bright for our tastes. The downstairs seemed much better, and it is the perfect place for people watching, especially on a nice night where they can leave their windows open. More

Dinner was most enjoyable at Rocco's, as the Gemelli pasta and chicken & broccoli calzone were delicious, and the service was most attentive. The calzone was large enough to feed three diners. We were seated at a terrific table near an open window, and enjoyed the harpoon IPA as well as a bottle of Pinot Noir. Prices are reasonable, and we had a wonderful evening dining at Rocco's. More

Overall incredible experience! Pretty sure we got the best seat in the house, a cozy corner nook, overlooking the historic streets of Boston. Great ambience. Red, our waitress, was outstanding! She was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, she provided great suggestions throughout evening. She started our dinner off with a complimentary champagne toast in honor of my birthday. We had beautifully made cocktails and all of the food was delicious, my favorite being the oysters and the lobster roll. Our meal ended with a tasty s’mores dessert. Will definitely be back very soon and would 100% recommend! More

Also the restaurant is nutfree which was perfect for my family and hard to come by, especially with Italian restaurants. My children were able to eat dessert, which is also a rarity, and it was outstanding. The servers were attentive and helpful. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. More
