So inviting and unpretentious. Lovely food and excellent service. My only suggestion is with the charcuterie some acid is a good addition (pickled veg, olives, etc.). The sweet soppresatta was beautifully done! I will be back!

Loved our waitress, the vibe, music, and reasonable prices. Only complaint was that the pasta could’ve been a little bit more al dente. Recommend the arancini.

Excellent, old school Italian food! Loved the basket of focaccia bread and generous salads, a perfect start! Our family of five enjoyed the homemade spaghetti and meatballs, chicken parmesan and orecchiette! Make sure you save room for a cannoli! Service was attentive without being rushed!

We were in town for a Celtics game and wanted a nice Italian meal ! We were very pleased with the whole experience, when we were being seated my wife wanted a corner table and the gentleman who was seating us seemed like he didn’t want to give us the corner but he changed his mind and said “ I can make it work “ and after it didn’t seem like it changed any thing for the rest of the evening. Our waiter was very good and attentive. I had lobster ravioli and it was delicious with plenty of lobster meat ! My wife had the orecchiette and she was very pleased, she finished the whole plate ! The only glitch was the lack of a dessert menu, the only had cannolis and I was disappointed in that an Italian restaurant didn’t have tiramisu but overall it was a very enjoyable dinner.

Was excited to try this place out after reading an article in Boston Magazine about the owners love of Chicken Parm. First of all, super chill vibe. Comfortable booths with plenty of space (which in the north end is a real premium), retro American Italian decor and a soundtrack of the Stones and Beatles. Red, out waitress, was amazing. Charming, upbeat and attentive. Really made the experience fun. The food was great. We got the monster mozzarella sticks and Asiago with honey. So good. The parm was delicious. Crunchy breading and covered in zesty sauce. I'd highly recommend checking this place out. Make sure you make a reservation.

The food and service were very good. Polite, attentive waiter. Food was good. If anything, portion of the veal I had was a bit too large. Price was quite reasonable.

Had a great meal with Michelle as our waitress. Super service and loved the ambiance. Food was good and the music in the background was fantastic - vintage 70s rock and roll. Hope to come back soon.

Tony & Elaine’s is like a time machine transforming you to 1970 in the North End. The food was excellent and tasted very home cooked. Decor & ambiance were stunning. Will be back many times!

Why do people love old school Italian? It is tough to argue that everyone doesn’t love a ton of carbs, cheeses and a good sauce together! But a lot of people seek it out because when it comes to Italian food, you typically get huge portions at a reasonable cost. As I have gotten older I am noticing that the traditional Italian joints are becoming a thing of the past. People, especially those in foodie cities like Boston prefer quality over quantity. Tony + Elaine’s is unique in that they found a way to bring the new and old school together. They serve our favorite classic Italian dishes at a reasonable price without cutting out the quality ingredients and taste that so many others do. I would put their meatballs and mozz sticks (they are ridiculous), up against any in the city. The chicken parm could feed a family of four and they would still fight over the leftovers the next day - solid 10. This place is a must try and is perfect for a night out with friends, family or a date night. Tony + Elaine’s is going to be a tough reservation once more people try it.
