A tradition in Boston’s historic North End. We have been serving generations of families,locals and tourists in the North End since 1931. People crave the taste of our food. Some say their mouths water just thinking about eating here. That’s why when we change even the slightest thing,they let us know it. Some things should stay just as they are.

The best Italian food in the North End! The service from the bartender to the host, General Manager, and our waitress was 5 star!

The service was outstanding! It started with Sam as our bartender as we waited for our table. Very helpful and friendly. Then we got to our table and Marco was our waiter. He was excellent. My wife had the salmon with linguini. Very good! I had the chicken saltombocca, the best I have ever had. The pasta bombolottis outstanding. We had the bombolotti. Fantastic pasta, great atmosphere and very capable and friendly service. I highly recommend Cantina Italiana.

My girlfriend and I went to Cantina Italiana for a North End Valentine's Day experience. We had no complaints about the place as it had delicious food and excellent wine options. Definitely recommend.

I went here on valentine's day with my girlfriend. The service was great, the waiter i had was always asking if we needed anything else. The food was excellent, and the prices were a great deal for the quality of the food.

Had a cozy neighborhood feel. The food quality did not match the price despite the large portions.

Super food and service. Homemade pasta, veal and chicken parmigianan. Bread was also homemade. Service was the best in many restaurants I have been in.

This was a great place to dine in the North End! My friends an I were greeted as we walked in and were immediately seated due to our reservation. The service was incredible and the food even better! Nothing better than homemade pasta with homemade sausage in a garlic/Parmesan sauce!

Will definitely return for another visit when I come to Boston!

We have been to Cantina Italiana several times. Food has improved- we almost didn't go back after our last visit in the summer. But the wait staff is so friendly, the family-friendly atmosphere so enjoyable, we were happy to return on New Year's Eve. Glad we did!
