There are so many places in the north end & this one just doesn’t compare. The portions are pretty small, especially for the price. Service wasn’t too great. I was expecting a professional wait staff but it was a very casual feeling. Service was pretty slow. It was also one of the only restaurants with open tables compared to the other ones that are full. I think that says a lot. All in all, there’s better places in the north end.

Mike our waiter was very informative. The staff created a very welcoming and family atmosphere. We enjoyed our experience and would go back and if we lived in the area I would consider it a go to restaurant. The gnocchi was very flavorful and very fresh just not cooked enough and was doughy.

The waiter was very rude. We had a reservation and they didn’t have an appropriate size table available. They put us at a 4 person table with 6 people. They weren’t helpful with questions for the menu. When I told the waiter I had a question, he replied “just one, I’m very busy.” And then took a long time to bring the check. The homemade pasta was pretty tasty, but I was unhappy with the service.

If you’re in the North End the best place to go is Casarecce! The drinks & food are delicious and Justin and Martino are outstanding! It’s great to see the North End thriving! Can’t wait to return!

Our dinner here was absolutely amazing from start to finish. We arrived slightly early but the amazing waiter was happy to seat us at that time(he came recommended and I now know why). He was extremely patient and attentive to us throughout the night, giving helpful hints and suggestions regarding food that always paid off. Our food was amazing, lobster ravioli and the carbonara, one of the best platings of each I've ever had. The spacing within the restaurant also was decent, while it is a small space they have closed every other table for social distancing. Finally, at the end of our meal, it felt as though we were saying goodbye to a friend, as again our waiter truly took that cliche extra step to make the whole night extraordinary.

My fiance and I had Valentine's dinner at Casarecce and it was great! The restaurant is small and intimate and we were sat at an awesome spot right by a window. Our server Martin was very attentive and pleasant, and the food and drinks were delicious! I had the pesto gnocchi which was amazing and my fiance had the alfredo which he absolutely loved. And our espresso martinis for dessert were fantastic. All in all, we had a perfect date night and would highly recommend Casarecce to anyone looking to have a great experience from start to finish!

We got there 15 min early and they were accommodating to seat us early, very nice. However the experience changed when they kept forcing us to put in our food - that they were so busy and needed to turn our table. Needless to say, we had our entire meal ordered within 15 minutes of us sitting down and were out the door in less than an hour. Even with us telling the waiter we respect the 90min table time, we wanted to enjoy our Valentine’s dinner - he did not care. Horrible service and experience and I can assure you I will never be going back.

I made a reservation for this restaurant earlier in the week for me and my boyfriend. We were a quite a bit early for our reservation, but were sat anyways with no problem. We were sat at a cute little table by the window of the restaurant.
For starters, we had some bread as well as the meatballs. My boyfriend is a big critic when it comes to meatballs, but he loved these. The bread came with olive oil and it tasted very authentic to Northern Italy. We also ordered from the house wine list, Pinot Grigio for me and Cabernet and then Sangria for him. We were very impressed! It was delicious.
I ordered the pasta with bolognese, and I was very happy I did. It was absolutely delicious! He ordered the Veal Parmesan, which came with a side of pasta. He said it was flavorful, beautifully cooked, and perfectly delicious. He wanted me to add that it cut like butter and that you could just tell everything was homemade, especially the sauce.
We were so full from our starters that we couldn’t finish our meals, and couldn’t even begin to think about fitting more in our stomachs, but we somewhat caved and ordered Cannolis to go, and ate them back at our hotel later that night. They were so yummy!
As for the service, it was outstanding. Our server was so friendly, started us off with ice water, frequently checked on us and seemed to genuinely care that we were enjoying our meals. He was great! The food came out quickly, too.
It made us sad to see how empty the restaurant was. We were the only diners! We understand it was just a Tuesday, but this place deserves as many tables filled as they’re currently allowed to. We will be sharing our experience with friends and family in hopes they they go experience this beautiful little Italian restaurant. It is so worth stopping in, and we can’t say enough good things about it! Please go support your local restaurants! They need you!

This place was fantastic. There are alot if Italian restaurants in the area but this one is a must . Small,quant,great service. Justin was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and gave us great recommendations. Martino claimedhe made the best Cosmo and he did. It was the beat I have ever had. I wish I took a pic of our dishes. I had the Bolenase,amazing,and hubby had alfredo . The sauce was creamy not at all heavy. Oh and the the parm spring roll app was delish. Do yourself a favor, try this place.

What a great spot. The food was delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and accomodating. It wasn't the restaurant's fault, but Police cars and Firetrucks were whizzing down Hanover Street while we were eating. Due to the pandemic, we ate at an outdoor table and it felt like I was dining at an outdoor cafe in Venice. The Veal Portofino was excellent. I will definitely come back again soon.

Hanover Street North End Al Fresco Diners Paradise. At Casarecce you can enjoy a fine bottle of wine; appetizers and an entree with your friends outdoors snack in the middle of the North End and voila; you have been transported to the heart of Florence 🇮🇹. The service is fantastic; and thanks to Mohammed our dining experience was complete.
P.S. the Veal Amalfi is a must !!!

Food was very good especially the pasta. The restaurant is very small so there aren’t many tables. We were right next to the kitchen and also very close to 2 other parties so it was a bit noisy. The kept the door open due to covid which also made it chilly, but that’s not really their fault. I believe the owner was the waiter/host and he was running his butt off and doing a great job for one person, but probably could have used some help. I would definitely order again, but probably stick to take out since it’s getting cold!

Excellent menu and great service. Lots of phenomenal meals that are the best of the best. So many detailed, classic dishes made of high quality ingredients. This is a real Italian restaurant that does food the right way. No weak spots on the menu. Fantastic cocktails as well. Looking forward to our next visit.
